Dil ki awaaj bhi sun- M. Rafi by vishamit007

First thing I have to ask is is, what is the painting you have included with this track? Its very intriguing? Did you write the track around the painting and if so, in what way? I like the track and think there are some great ideas. I like the beat youve gone for and the guitar is good. I think you need a heck of a lot more high frequencies and a lot more bass. Basically, I would seriously look at your eqs as the whole thing seems on the same level at the moment. The guitar is way too far down in the mix and is completely lost and the lack of certain frequencies mean that there isnt a good lead established throughout. The vocals when they come in are amazing! perfect for the track and the style but I think they take too long to come in. I would have liked to hear the vocals sooner in the song. When the vocals come in, I think the song greatly improves and the mixing and eqs seem really well done in this section. if you did the same sort of thing in the first half of the song, it would be great! Hope to hear more of your music soon!

This is such a great track! Good to have a bit of humour from time to time and you hit it so well! Not really sure how to approach this from a reviewing perspective as songs with an element of parody have a tendency to be quite liberal on their production philosophies so I dont feel i have too much of a right to tell you what works well and what doesn't seen as its all a bit of a laugh anyway! I'm giving this five stars partly for that reason and the fact that the production is good for what it is but about 95% of the 5 stars I have given for the lyrics. Not only are they great, you certainly weren't lazy with them - this song is massive! Great work and really made me smile :)

tribute to my mom claudette by polodonred

Great original intro - really unique way to start! When the song properly kicks in it really doesnt disappoint. The lyrics are great and your rhythm is really good. The vocals are quite heavy on the treble eqs so might be worth either messing with the bass eqs or layering the vocals with harmonies or more thick backing vocals to really pad them out and give a more rounded sound. Liked the synth sounds - gave a good feel to the song. It felt like the kind of track I'd hear on a video game - something like GTA - not sure whether thats a compliment or not! Look forward to hearing more!

Blues Lite by nomi338

This is a great track and I will not comment on the length as you have already said it is just a teaser :) There isn't much to criticise at all really, the instrumentation is excellent. The one thing I would say, is that the piano is very high in the mix giving it the feel of a lead instrument, however what the piano is playing, despite being really fantastic, has the feel of a backing instrument. Would like to see the piano melodies developed if its kept that high in the mix. Really good stuff though!

Thirty by Eon Mallett

You mention a piano in your description but the instrument played on the track seems quite ambiguous. if it is a piano/keyboard then it could do with a more legato feel and a smoother release if you have the capabilities to alter such things. The thing about this track tough is that when you look past the recording, it is actually a beautifully written song. I can imagine this played on an acoustic piano and sounding amazing! Sorry if thats not what you are going for - maybe its because I'm a pianist myself! The track is a nice length and I really liked the added sound effects, gave a nice new dimension and gave the song a much more cinematic feel! With some fiddling with recording and instrument settings this could be a real winner of a track!

Really nice production on this one! The lyrics are intensely delivered and the layering is just mad. There is so much going on in this track but not too much going on. I really cant think of anything wrong with it. Would kind of like you to post the lyrics up on here if that isn't against the kind of thing you are going for? Seriously there is too much about this track I like to list: the screams and backing vocals/harmonies, the breaks and drops are spot on and the structure is as tight as I've ever heard. This is deserving of my first six star rating. Hugely deserved - not even a fan of this style of music but this is just awesome! Nice one :)

A New Day by 35 Seconds Remain

This is a lovely track. The chord progressions keep me interested throughout and your voice has a really lovely tone to it. Two quick things for improvement: The backing track seems quite bass heavy, might suggest either lowering the bass levels or messing with your eq in the treble ends. The guitar solo is epicly incredible and the bass issues dont seem as much of a problem there so it leads me to believe its something to do with the interaction with the vocals. The vocals definitely need some good reverb added - they are too dry at the moment but maybe also look into the relationship between the vocals and the backing track. The ending is amazing and despite all these comments, I was so incredibly close to giving it a five stars! I am favouriting you guys for sure! P.s. will review your track Again...again tomorrow!

I'm Just Bad by John Carter

Really cool beat that holds this track up. The moment your vocals come everything else just melts into the background as they were so good! It was hard to focus on the backing track at all to see if anything needed improvement! How was the piano recorded? it seems quite raw with a potential flanger effect but that could just be distortion due to live recording. Would be interesting to know! Your vocals are incredible though, so smooth yet so raw and full of emotion with traces of bowie, weller and clapton (hope none of those are too offensive!) can't thin of much else to say here to be honest! The lyrics were some of the best I've seen so far on this site. Got to be a five stars!

Intercessor by kamacosmic

I could have sworn I have already reviewed this track but here goes again. Oh dear, its a good day for good music but a bad day for advice as there is literally nothing I can say to improve this song! This is one of those few tracks I specifically come to this site to listen to over and over again. Don't really need to say much more than that! the beat is amazing and gives such a unique feel to it, the tune is catchy as anything and the vocals are top quality. Sorry I can't be more helpful for improvement but what an amazing talent you have!
