Tabernacle of the Most High by CindyHClark



A competent piece of music and the singer has a very good voice. Suggested improvements:- Have another go at the guitar intro, it sounds as if the guitarist forgot what he was doing half way through. Take the time to add the lyrics as I could only make out 50% of the words. Over all a pleasant piece of worship listening although the key changes would make hard work for a congregation to learn.

Unknown Piece of Light by Vincenzo



A pleasant piece of music with a good tune. The piano was a good choice for your main instrument. I would suggest that you make more of the phrase,'Unknown piece of light.' Using that as a refrain would make the song more memorable. You might like to try backing off the mic and singing louder and with more confidence.

All the best

Illuminations by Jun Naotsuka



This is a competent piece of composition with very good sound quality and drive. It would fit well in a computer game or in the sound track of a movie. To improve it you might consider adding a lead instrument with a melody line. This I feel would move the piece from, 'Background,' to, 'Title track.'
All the best,

My World



This meanders pleasantly and is very well sung with both good diction and emotion. There is no definite hook and in my opinion the verses could do with being shorter. Your backing musicians did an adequate job. All the best in the competition.

Time is by kern



Lovely backing with a really nice build up, not too long, not too short. Everything sits well in the mix. Note that the first line of the lyric is missing from the text.

Reverie - Bethan Catherine by bethancatherine



A nice haunting style and melody. It would be an idea to include the lyrics with this track as I did not catch every word. The build up was also very effective.

Una Noche Sin Ti by songwriter47



A splendid piece of music which drifts along like a summer breeze. Although there is no real hook to come away with it is the sort of piece that I could listen to over and over without getting bored. Well recorded and the only suggestion I could make is that you bring the dual string melody in earlier, drop it then bring it back in again where you did.

Blessings

Don`t Cry by 2USband



Very Carol King which is good. Great harmonies and a singable melody. The choice of instrumentation is good for the overall effect but not suitable for a 50's song. In the 50's and early 60's if you got that distorted sound out of you amp you took it back to the store and complained! Still, competition aside, a good song.

Happier Than I Came In by Liquor&Lush



A pleasant melody with a competent guitar backing. Your vocal harmonies are great. When I started on this site I just played guitar and sang but I quickly discovered that songs bigger backings kept beating me in the competitions so multi-tracked songs seem to do better. It is also a good idea to type in the lyrics. All the best.

Oceans of Love.. Kisses of the Wind by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.



Well written and performed. You have a decent voice and the arrangement worked well. I found the strings a little over-powering but this is one of the best tracks I have heard on the site so far.
Blessings
