Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

Positive Comments: * unique lead vocals* song has memorable chorus/hook* lyrics have a strong universal message * simple instrumentation & nice chord changes* could be a movie “message” piece

Constructive Comments: + production is clear but mono track stereo sound-field can help each instrument stand out+ doubled vocals loses clarity in lyric at times+ chorus vocal is strong: but a unique instrumental part or lead-line to go along with chorus would help it stand apart from rest of the song

Song: We’ve Never Let Go Of Our Dream – Instrumental

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: What a nice tune. I’ve listened three times now. It’s really sweet and smooth, and it has enough new ideas appearing to keep in interesting but enough repetition to make it stick in the mind and feel familiar within the first minute. I LOVE the descending bassline bridge section. Nice work!

Constructive Comments: The bass sound is too boomy in the low EQ <100K range and also too loud in the mix. I think the bass lines are a tad too busy and this would flow better if you let the bass sit in the groove a bit more statically and just anchor without being quite as active (I have to fix the same thing in a couple of my tunes). Nice job!!

Positive Comments: * Keyboards and vocals stand out* String lines are clear and lush* A “Disney” musical feel* Nice performance and production!

Constructive Comments: + Adding one more musical element in the bridge (ex. bass, cymbal rolls, or other) could help it stand out+ non-diatonic chord change in piano intro threw me off (not really there in verse or chorus is it?)+ key modulation could be effective for last chorus melody line stays constant and can get repetitive+ very nice tempo change for ending+ I like this piece alot, I hope my comments don’t sound negative.

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Gorgeous guitar intro! And the vocal performance is just as good. Both have superb engineering. What a great vocal performance and voice. You’ve got a tremendous mood and evocative lyrics going. Think of what Sturgill Simpson would do with this…

Constructive Comments: I’d skip the second phase of the guitar intro where it gets busier. It makes it too long and you don’t want to introduce too much side theme. Overall I’d back off the busy guitar work and focus on chords & strumming to allow the song to prevail (of course your picking is very good). “come alive” the melody/phrasing/singing drops off a bit. I’d rework that to make it stronger. same with that phrase after “the place is gone”. I think you need a bridge and a chorus sections in G to bring a big lift, using harmony vocals and a female voice in the harmony. This is a fantastic start. I’d like to provide the chorus & bridge parts if you’re interested. Actually I’d like to produce and arrange another version of this…

Constructive Comments: + no intro (even 2 bars can set mood/feel etc)+ drums come in nicely on chorus but the sound quality changes (like a lower quality mp3 track) + nice guitar fills throughout+ fades out too fast
