Zimbabwe by Nigel Barrett

Nigel Barrett

Broadjam Artist: Nigel Barrett
Song: Zimbabwe

Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

Positive Comments: * Sequenced synth intro starts tune nicely* Lead vocal has unique & memorable quality * Instrumentation/arrangement is full and lush * Drums/rhythm track keeps a good groove tight bass!* Tasty key modulations and instrumental hooks * Great closing piece for a TV/Movie/Documentary

Constructive Comments: + could add a couple guitar parts just for variation+ as song develops idea of conflict/despair, can this be represented with a tempo/rhythm/feel change (1/2 X break)?+ swirling keys are ethereal, put them at key parts so they don’t become blase+ add “ethnic/regional” sounds if available

Positive Comments: i like the combination of instruments. the voice sounds nice with the tone used. great start and come in. nice job on that.

Constructive Comments: I think a better mix would suit this. you have some good horses here, worth a little more feed. not that it will do well as it is. the voice is close enough to pass, but Melo-dyne used at about 75% would make this smash in my opinion.Am I ever satisfied? No. No. No. It’s what music teacher do, it’s what my two piano teacher Aunts did to me. They refused to give you a perfect score. I hated them for it then, but now I realize that they loved me so much they wanted me to be perfect–for real. Straight Ahead Brother! catnip pat

Wasted Days by Richard Walker

Richard Walker

Broadjam Artist: Richard Walker
Song: Wasted Days

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: It just hit me–this sounds like a lost Traffic tune!! The vocals remind me of Nick Drake too. That groove is a classic Traffic beat, and of course you’ve got both killer piano work and organ in there. Love the vocal timbre, vocal phrasing & melody, Wurlitzer electric, acoustic piano, organ and slinky drum beat, all of which are really well engineered too. Excellent lyrics. I really dig this –nice work!

Constructive Comments: I’d drop the acoustic alone part of the intro–the acoustic guitar sound is a bit “piezo”, and I don’t like the lead guitar lines that you pickup with because it’s got a happy, jam band sound that doesn’t fit with the mood that dominates most of the tune. I’d really like to hear you rework it starting right out with the keys. And get away from bang-dang-a-lang quitar strum rhythm that’s more Greatful Dead. I think the bass could drive the beat a bit more working close with the drums instead of following along after the beat. This would a tremendous amount of energy I bet. Nice work!

Praising The Lord by Randal Dunkle

Randal Dunkle

Broadjam Artist: Randal Dunkle
Song: Praising The Lord

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice harmonic work!! Of course this is Randal singing in faith. Interesting story lyrics that bring a lot of gospel events, which makes it more complex and interesting than a lot of Christian Rock.

Constructive Comments: The vocals are too dry &close and much louder than the rest of the tracks, so it gives a bit of a voiceover effect. If you push the vocals back in level, record a bit farther from the mic, and add some reverb it will let the vocal sit in the mix better.
