Thanks alot for listening John, I was hoping bring a more artistic approach to the engineer instead of looking at it as a job, now I see clearer how the mix and eq sculpt a song, Ive always been more of just musical artist but not a engineer, but now its like im blending the world of science, art and spirit!

Boiling In Fear by compresser69

Very interesting melding of styles. There's a lot of things going on here that are interesting. I think the rhythm is very 70's in terms of drive and the overall feel. The metal component is interesting and adds quite a different feel to the metal genre.

The mix and mastering are well done. Everything is clear and intelligible. The stereo space is well used.

I appreciate the incorporation of multiple styles. After all, music is a very subjective thing. This approach I can appreciate. Great job.

Only Echoes Remain (With Vocals) 4 by threshold

I've listened to this piece a few times now. I love the introduction. It inspires a feeling that some s&%t is about to happen. The best music, from my perspective should always paint a picture in your head even without lyrics. This is accomplished in your track.

Lyrically, it's difficult for me to comment. I found it difficulty understanding them, and since they aren't posted with the track I am at a loss. However, the sound is a bit annoying and in my opinion, detracts from the music which is very good. Maybe adjusting the EQ on the vocal(s) would help. Also, again in my opinion they should be a bit more up front in the mix. I'm not saying blast them, but just allow them to be heard clearly. They are a bit more understandable in the chorus than verse. Maybe a bit more separation in the mix of the instruments would open more vocal space, but the high end is definitely an issue.

I like way you used the percussion, especially the huge sounding bass drum. It actually sounds more like timpani a bit. I think the hi-hat could benefit from a bit more of a dynamic performance. The percussion is a bit loud in the mix while the vocals are happening.

The arrangement is interesting and maintained my attention and there are some interesting sounds in the mix.

The ending is likeable; a bit bizarre, and I like that.

Overall a very creative piece. Correct the mix issues and I thing you'll have a great track.

Kuna Kizazi (There is a generation) by Livingstone

Very pretty melodies. The rhythm of this piece is very good and it presents a very calm and serene mood to the listener. The vocal harmonies are very good and are well balanced in the mix.

The recording quality is very good and the arrangement is nice.

Good work.

Wow! Thank you for this review. I never thought of it as a Julian Lennon type feeling song...but it helps me relate to him and I will likely go back and listen t him.
Thanks so much for your review!!!

Silly Girl Fantasy by Jimi Seven

Very nice theme that I'm sure is applicable in many situations today. The track is well structured and flows well. It's a bit reminiscent of some of the Julian Lennon material that I've heard.

The lyrics are well written and relay the intent well.

Good track.


Thank you very much for iistening....this was a fun track and it is being modified for a second version that may become an intro into a full rock type song.
Thanks for a very nice review.

Excellent use of the stereo field. Very cool flute like melody in the intro. This reminds me a bit of some of the intro's in Yes songs or maybe even the work of Patrick Moraz.

It have a very cinema feel, like a movie soundtrack.

The mix is very clean and crispy. The strings and other orchestral instruments sound great. I like your style.

Great piece.


Thank you for your review. There are three guitars on this song. A Fender acoustic 12 string, a 1961 Gibson Les Paul, and a limited edition Rickenbacker.
As a side note the song has 18 tracks: 4 vocal, 1 bass guitar, 2 drums, and the last ten tracks are for guitars...I did double track some guitars.

Thanks again for your great review.

Maybe Next Time

This has a very Beatle like quality in the writing style. The vocal harmonies have a very clean 60's quality. The lyrics are well written. The "hook" is catchy and memorable. Excellent quality for radio ready material.

Is the guitar a Tele? It sounds very much like one, or maybe Rickenbacker?

Good song.


This was influenced by the band Badfinger, British band that does have a sound similar to The Beatles. Two of the original members committed suicide related to how their manager stole their money and created a bad contract with record company.
This song has references to Badfinger's songs --Day After Day, Baby Blue, No Matter What. In fact the lead in guitar riff is based upon one of their songs.
Thanks agaun for the highest score here. I appreciate it.
My wife tells me I am unduly influenced by The Beatles and sometimes she tells me to not express that so much in my songs. But I believe it is in my DNA.

When Blue Fades to Black

It's great when a composer incorporates lyrics that relate to life challenges associated with it. Relationships are always a great topic for songs. There are so many methods of expressing things we all feel. You've done a great job here.

Still reminds me of The Beatles (and that's not meant as any kind of insult). I was always a big Beatle fan

Very nice work.


Having toured for a while this song has strong meaning for me...a friend did the final mix which did change the final sound somewhat, mostly reducing the guitars and taking out the mid-range a bit too much...but he put in the sax which I love.

Thanks for your comments

Rock'n Roll Star

Sounds like something you lived through. This is a well written story and definitely holds the attention of the listener. The theme is excellent and one that I'm sure many can relate to.

The mix is very good. The guitars sound great. Your vocal timbre fits the mood of the music well. The 60's like qualities are unique today and you do it well. The vocals and harmonies are well done.

Excellent piece.
