snake in the cradle by Ray Brookes



Nice beat and clean instruments make this one pretty fun to listen to. I think you have a real talent for the blues, just as a side note. I will discuss recording and composition, so know that I am on your side with this song. Clean, sweet sound on my system, and good mix except I noticed a drop in volume for vocals on the 6th line when you say "Black snake hissing" which you could equalize in Cubase if it's a separate track. This occurred a couple more times in the song though, so I would suggest another track. (I don't like to cut and paste, but suppose you could) I know sometimes I move my face slightly to the right side of the mic, so it might be just that simple. As far as composition, I just love that harmonica. You do a really great job with it, so all I can say is keep the harmonica! Very good song, on the brink of super sonic.

for your love by milkyholiface



Your music was entertaining. I don't generally listen too much R&B anymore but my exwife was an R&B singer so I familiar with the genre. I would like to make some recording and composition comments, so understand that I am interested in construction, not fire. I notice good effects in the mix but the fade at the end of the song was a little abrupt. I would stretch that out a bit and give it a smooth closing that a fine such a piece of music deserves. Your backups are mixed a little soft (perhaps your were looking to pronounce the lead) but a little more boost would be better for contrast in the melody. In terms of the composition, technicals for instruments are fine, but in some parts it seemed that the lyrics might have too many words...try the vocal track again and omit unnecessary words to increase stylization and you might have a little fun with it. This is just a thought, as less words sometimes say more. If you don't like it, write me and tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, but I think you will love it! Otherwise, I see a song that is really good on the verge of being spectacular.

Whine Up On Something by MrAnthony



Really well done. I am not a reggae fan, so I thought I would get that out front. I have had a few friends in the past who played reggae so I am familiar with the genre. Recording quality is as it should be, and sounded good on my system. Percussion and vocals were clear and excellent. I enjoyed the electronics on the voice, but you might want to brighten the voice in mix, just an idea because I thought it would help to stand out a bit more. Your technicals and composition are spot on, a real pleasure to hear and I want to say the complexity and transitions worked well. Super song...keep it up!

Very creative, excellent fade and transitions with clear vocals and clean recording. Sweet professional context with contrasting rhythms added texture and complexity to the song. I would have done a couple of things, but know that I am not speaking as songwriter from your genre so any suggestion is just superficial. I would have added a few echoing tracks in fugue toward the end just before the sound effects. I would have also mirrored keyboard sounds with the sound effects to give it a dreamlike state. Feel free to try it just to see how it sounds, but I think you would really like it. Otherwise, sweet. Peace.

never kick a man when he's down by Ray Brookes



Congratulations, you just wrote my new favorite song! Ray, you must've swallowed some kind of super song writing pill before you wrote this. This is fantastic. I enjoyed the harmonica, the guitar, the beat, the lyrics. If this is what the land down under does to ya, I'm going to have come down to Aus and give it a try. Positively excellent in every respect...

In terms of using a strat for the lead, well, even without the Gibson, the lead was great anyway. I'd also like to ask, what inspired this song--it's as thought provoking as it is enjoyable. Cheers

House of helll by twisty



Definitely a fun, halloween song. Good modulating transitions with a nice eerie vocal tract that's energetic. The only composition comment I would make is to vocalize the words as clearly as possible, but I know this can be hard to do, especially with a new song. Certainly a great composition as it stands-- just loved it!

give me your hand by pledge



I found this song to be fun and I liked the reggae accent. I am going to make a composition comment, so know that I am interested in construction, not fire. I really wanted to hear your vocals for the words, but it just wasn't as clear as I would've liked--try mixing a bit differently or brightening that vocal track a little. Also, I found the fade a little rough at the end, cutting abruptly when it could've been smooth (yes, call me picky, but your work deserves a clean cut at the end). I wanted to give 4.5 stars but it doesn't let me...just so you know. Thanks for sharing!

Hayem by harras



Super excellent sound track appropriate for a video game, video, film, slide show, or performing arts track. This work is brilliant and if I could give 6 stars I would, and I want you to know the reasons: 1) Integration of World Sounds and beat, 2) Strong/solid transitions & variations, 3) Excellent flow and development worthy of an instrumental. I am going to make some recording and composition comments so please know that I am interested in construction, not fire. The recording was clear and clean on my system, with each note distinct. Very enjoyable. As for the composition....

The Puzzle by RobinSong



Wow! Very enjoyable! Please don't take this wrong, man...but I busted up laughing (in a cool way, definitely in a cool way). Super fun song, loved the lyrics. Nice choice using audacity to record. Sweet drum loop. I really like the vocals. Now, I will make some recording and composition comments so please know that I am on your side with this one. First, I would lighten up a bit on enhancements for your voice, I think you have a great voice, especially for this song (I always over do it on the voice too, don't feel bad). Instrumental technicals are solid and clean, so the only composition comment I would give is that in the ending I would have went with a longer fade out, repeating that last line. Just a idea, you can try, if you don't like it, write me and tell I don't know what I'm talking about, but I think you'd love it. Cheers

Blues in my bones by twisty



The track offered a relaxing slow blues melody to open that was a good start. The recording was balanced and sounded clear on my system so I am just going to make some composition comments. Please understand that I am interested in construction, and I am on your side with this score. Your concept for the lyrics is a good one. I just felt that you might want to try "trimming" words to make it easier to fit the music. Some of the words are hard to hear if at all, so you might want to just drop a few syllables and see if that helps just for sake of clarity. I like to sing along with songs so when I stumble, I say, hmmm....what would I like to change. I agree that you should be pleased with the lead at the end; very nice indeed (go ahead, lengthen the lead, have fun with it!). Feel free to reply...
