The Exorcist made me do it! stebanHelmet Kill That Rooster
There is a more distinctive melody here that is a hook, of sorts, and mostly makes it not so flat an arrangement. The vocals are pretty good with the harmony voices and the growl. I still don't hear the whole story easily, but the idea comes across now. I'm not sure the production does the music justice, but a certain machine gun attack inherent in metal places precise speed maneuvers over other musical aesthetics. And so the question remains- is it fine as is for this genre? Perhaps for purists, but perhaps not for perfectionists.
Smoking dope? You naughty boy! Ailwyn ReesCrack Baby The Harry Wood Band
You could have a hit on your hands here, but the track does need some refining. There's nothing wrong with your songwriting abilities, as I like the lyrics/ tune, etc., as you've got a decent hook with the chorus. The lead and rhythm guitars are at the right level, so nothing needs to be done there. Bass guitar: It's coming out with perhaps too much low end. I'm a great fan of using lots myself, but in this case it needs to have some of it taken off. It's a little bit too excessive? I appreciate that you didn't ask for the vocals to be assessed, but they're too overpowering, and need to come down a few dB. Also, consider the use of backing vocals, as they would really enhance the chorus. I like the song, and will listen again :-)
Curious rock song? Ailwyn ReesHow Can I? Pat
Yes, there are a few misplaced songs on this review system. This would be one of them. I like the laid back approach to this one, but rock? Methinks it would fit more snugly into the Pop Category... Love the bass, but can't score it, as it's not in the individual aspects! Nice sax sounding effect on guitar in places, but the track is dominated by keyboards, which again I can't assess! Good overall production, reminds me a lot of Barry Manilow, and should do well in these charts. Mind you, that will depend on how many reviews you get.....
Love gets in your eyes stebanThe Love In Your Eyes Pat
A solid guitar/vocal melody in this one. Bass is played well, too. The words are good for a sad lost love song, and the music is a touch more melancholy than not, and sung with such a smooth, sensitive, poetic, empathetic tone that I keep forgetting it is a sad song. Well, I suppose that is the case , that this end game of love was not the singer's idea or desire, but he is resigned to the outcome, to the unchangeable truth of the situation, but still bummed out by the freshness of it. There is a specific story here, a sequence of events, maybe it is the story of a man who goes away for work too much, until one day the one who waited became tired of waiting, who couldn't stand it anymore, and hence love slipped away... This has the Al Stewart/Seals & Croft softness, it is just not a summer breeze or even year of the cat this time, more like the James Taylor thought I'd see you one more time again situation, and I suppose people sometimes want to commiserate with a sympathetic environment, in which case this is one of those theme songs for such occasions.
Not quite a minute? Ailwyn ReesDissonant Uprise The Trouser Cops
Well, thank you for filling in 53 seconds of my life with a brief, but exceptional bass line. Couldn't detect a hook in this brief amount of time, but a nice bit of distorted slide in there, but a lack of punch from the drums. Were they digital? The track finished a while ago and I'm still typing! Such is life! Perhaps the next track of yours I listen to will be 1min + ?
