Tombstone Overture by dglockwood

another epic song, could be a soundtrack...this is so cinematic.

Liked the changes in tempo, percussion.

Never get bored listening to your music!

Great composition!

The Industrial Giant by dglockwood

Great song and idea. You nailed the concept musicaly.

I really liked the tempo and the suspense.

Another great performance. You have imagination!


DJ-MCMUSIC
Thanks Jimi - a Latin/Rock feel was exactly what we were after -
we are exited about how this song has turned out... and it's really getting some traction, actually got folk in the industry contacting me instead of the other way around. So fingers crossed let's see where this one takes us.

Sparks Fly by DJ-MCMUSIC

Really cool vibe to this song. Has a mix of genre's...sort of a Latin Rock feel to it. The rhythm is really nice.

Your vocals are excellent as always. The instruments are played very well.

The vocals were hard for me to make out in the first half of the song but were much clearer in second half of the song.

Also, about half way through the song the bass level went up, or so it seemed tp me.

But this is one of your best songs of many excellent songs. Nice dance song.

Great work as always!

Blood On Sand by DavidXGabriel

This sounded good musically, nice mixing and interesting effects.

I liked the change of pace. That was surprising and kept me listening.

While not my genre, I respect the skill it takes to write and perform.

Good job!


DavidXGabriel
oops... I apologize for my rude reply. It came out unintentionally. I was meaning only musical conceptual points. But it came out too general. Sorry for this. In order to be more specific I'll give you my points 1 by 1.

1. I don't consider as "good music" ONLY a beautiful musical melody. However it is an important part and there are lot of musicians who combine all, but it is too far from 100%
There must be something more like charge, pain, happiness, sadness etc.

2. I consider vocals as a music instrument only, and for me it is not the way of the delivery of the lyrics with a "pretty melodic voice" to hearer. All this is about emotion (including lyrics).

3. I try not to stay in the frames of any genre like hard rock, metal, country, disco, Jazz, Blues. I love them ALL. And I try to put them all together into composition as much as possible.

I listened to your music and I have read your reviews, and I understood that in above positions we have different points of view. That's no meaning that MY VIEW IS RIGHT or YOURS IS RIGHT. Opposite: everyone has his own way. Just we don't match here.
That's why I am not reviewing you.
Unfortunately my reply w/o all explanations above came out rude. For that please receive my deepest apologies.

BTW I was a premier member of this site since early 2012. Now I am very unhappy with Tom (admin of this site). So here we are together. And I have decided to downgrade my membership to standard. From now on I can not post any more new songs here for reviewing. You can see my old account on this link: http://www.fanmusic.com/mypage.jsp?userid=300626 (copy and paste it into your browser). there you can see most posted by me songs and videos on this site in the comment section. Or you can visit http://davidxgabriel.com to view all my works in a bunch. You are more then welcome there.

Hope I have clarified my view, and I hope you will accept my apologies for my unintentionally rude reply.

Sincerelly

Position Of The Dire by DavidXGabriel

This is unusually dark and would work on a scary movie theme.

Very hard to make out vocals...I know they are posted but I really feel it is helpful to make most of them out.

But good music for its genre. Keep performing!


DavidXGabriel
Thank you Jimi. I understand your musical view, but I don't share it. That's why I don't review you.

Ironically after you saying you notice I am still a Premiere Member, you will notice it ran out today, so I am no longer. I don't really see any point the way things are at the moment. I would appreciate it if you would keep me posted though if any of the Contests become active as I have several which have been pending for years now, but of course now they would not be in the running unless I re-joined, and as a non Member, unless someone tells you, there is no way of knowing if they start up again or not.
Sorry to hear about your arthritis. I'm afraid you and me both. I suffer badly with arthritis. especially in the hands and knees. I find when playing Ukulele for any amount of time my little finger on my left hand locks out straight, so I have difficulty bringing it round to the string in time very often, very frustrating!!!
Many thanks for your continued support in your music, and yes, I will check back from time to time to see what new music is being posted.

Take care

Meadow Sweet by Kerri Powles

I have good news and bad news as far as my review on this.

First, the good news.I have zero Celtic but my wife, being of Irish origins, loves Celtic music...this is no exception.

I love the "flute" on this...subtle but reminds me of Titanic. Your music is always very good and this certainly ranks up there. You have many songs and I know I have not heard them all. But this is likely in my top 3 of your songs.

Now for the bad news.

I am out of 6's to award and so it is with much sadness that I must give you a 5. Still I know you are in no shortage of 6's!!! I am so jealous.

One thing that does annoy me about reviews on this site is that it very clear that a 6 is exceptional, 5 excellent, 4 Good and so forth.

And yet it appears the majority of reviewers give out 5's like candy which dilutes the value of a 5 and even a 6. In reality there are far more 4's deserved than 5's. That's not to say when a reviewer awards a low mark that he/she should be mean spirited about it. They should be offered honesty and suggestions on how to improve.

But when I listen to your music for example, much of your work should get 7's or 8's. A 5 should only be awarded when there are no real changes needed.

Sorry for venting, but I tire of boiler plate reviews that a couple on this site give over and over and over. I would rather that they simply do not waste any one's time.

Meanwhile, I will enjoy an extremely talented artist like yourself who posts some of the very best music on this site.

Thanks!

Once again I cannot thank you enough for such a fabulous review. If your wife likes this one she would probably like my 'Where The Heart Lies', which is also a Celtic one.

It's been a bone of contention with me for some while now, this limitation on 6's, I don't see the reasoning, or the point behind it quite frankly. There have been many occasions when I have wanted to give a 6 for an outstanding work, and it gripes me that I am forced to give 5's as I've run out of my quota. If you ask me a few things need re-thinking on this site.

Many thanks for your continued support of my music.
