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!

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This tune builds so well! Electric piano intro grabbed me right away. The HH and congas with a ton of verb got the groove chugging, and then some nice bass playing gave some support. Extremely cool, moody piece of music here. Originality scores are high on this piece. Visually I could see this piece doing well in many areas. The recording is organic and sounds nice and real. The mix is perfect and the master sounds like a professional job. I really enjoyed the song. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: The only and I mean ONLY thing I would say about this song to critique it is that the strings at the end might not need to be there. Other than that, I loved it and I would like to hear more. Very enjoyable. The groove is happening.

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.

Song: Rainy Night

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Way slinky minor Blues feel here with some Jazz elements. Love the drums and atmospheric keys. There’s some really hot and interesting lead work that’s kinda Gary Moore school.

Constructive Comments: I’d take the flange of the guitar–to my ears it’s too harsh and effect driven. But keep that overdrive in. A cleaner tone would really let this sing. Check out some Robben Ford for a reference to exactly what I’m gettin at!
