Hey, Ho, Elio by Scott Harvey



don't know what to say. it's in a place all by itself. is it advertisement. or simply a novel little ditty? Funny, I looked forward to the quick and perfectly placed 'honk honk' and those vibes, like silly bones clacking. it's just plain campy weird in a way . . . sweetly odd and strangely irresistible.

The Hills of Caledonia by John David Coupland
Chapter 19 of the book Songs by JDC



for whatever a classic folk song is asked to do, this folk song does the job exactly. a lilting sing-song lyric that comes close but stays away from cliche economical and gently understated. innocent and wise at the same time. poignant and joyful. nice one.

Romance Of The Ocean by Kerri Powles



very cinematic and emotional! very lovely indeed. it is a big sound that DOES seem suited to a grand theme like the ocean. (rather than a quiet country lane for eg!)

You Are The One by Kerri Powles



the lush and lovely melody and chording especially at intro was simply astounding and it set me up for a powerful piece of whatever-would-come-next! . . . unfortunately I found the actual poetry far to cliche for my taste.
It used too many standard mechanisms and metaphors. I felt cheated!
I've heard all of them before. So have you. But it has so much potential! If you could only achieve the simple power of the instrumentation in your lyric it would be goosebump stuff right the way thru. the words should have as much contemporary fresh impact as the melody does! Nice, tho.

I Don't Know What To Do by dhentosh



this is a desperate place to be no doubt! - for the VOCAL comp. it doesn't get my vote - but overall effect? very impressive! and sad, man! it feels like a piece from say WHO's rock opera Tommy, the character reaching the apex of his crisis. huzzah!

'Flying Solo by twisty



Good stuff here! The chorus/hook is so well balanced and the vocals and orchestration remind me of Pink Floyd. Awesome. The character of the chorus melody is - i don't know - somehow more intense (choruses generally do intensify the situation) than the verse which don't hold my attention as much and I want to get back to that great chorus! Verse-wise, the images are potent but not handled as deftly as I think could. . . . maybe too many different metaphors into the idea. Since the theme is Flying and Crashing, the verses should talk about the break-up in those terms. Hard to explain . . . but anyway, its really very very good and the guitar is well played and very clean and resonant. Hope I didn't deflate any excitement about posting it, because I imagine you're pretty proud of it.

coming for my son by Ray Brookes



nice job on this one, especially the guitar work. story is autobiographical ? or - I'm kind of assuming - just a novel idea? fun stuff.

Adagio by Ionut Mirel Udrea



at first, I didn't know this was a 'transcription' but I recognized the familiar melody it became clear. Albinoni, of course. Perfectly suited to the dance floor! Is it ok to find it ironically humorous? It ended too soon, though. When it broke to just the beat near the finish, I was enjoying the groove, anticipating a come-back but you were done! More please.

Fantasia in D by Mozart by Ionut Mirel Udrea



hey man, this forum is for us amateurs! no fair! this one is as good as it gets. not to be mean to the others around here . . . but some of the 'classical' ones fall flat only because subtlety seems difficult to achieve.
no so here. great application of your talent. huzzah!
