    Really clean mix, wow! Nice vocals and good song, a pop style that takes me back! Guitars are great and the harmonies are killer.

    Hey, thanks for those kind comments Kevin--much obliged--Allan.

    Hey, Allan,

    Nice work on this tasty pop rocker!👍

    Cool guitar fills, excellent vocals and harmonies, as always from you, and a nice, clean, fresh sounding mix!😀

    "Baby Blue Lies" that came on right after it on Soundcloud was also really great, definitely a cool Roy Orbison vibe and I really loved the keyboards.

    Great stuff, buddy, have a good weekend!😀

    Hey Bob, thanks for those comments particularly that you dig the guitars -- real guitars are the thing right mate? -- some people try to pass off midi sounds, loops and such as if they're playing an actual guitar.   Not gonna have that crap.

    And, it's not unusual that you'd notice guitars being the fantastic rock guitarist that you are. ~~Allan

    This is a really a nice pop rocker.  I love the declaration of the lyrics matched with a cheery, catchy, melody.  Vocals and harmonies are  very well done and I can see where in the comments above where this song could be compared to RO and Cliff Richards. 

    Really good work and I enjoyed the listen.


    Hey Freddy, thanks for listening and for those kind comments -- glad ya like the song.  I'm looking forward to your next song post  -- they're always enjoyable.~~Allan

    It's a good song - I enjoyed the listen.  The bass and kick were clear in the mix, and I enjoyed your vocal. Your vocal made me think of Cliff Richard. The tambourine was a nice addition to the rhythm track.

    Nice job overall - cheers.

    Much thanks mate -- glad ya like it.~~Allan

    That's you on the background vocals too? Nice. I can hear some Roy influence there.
    Maybe just a tad brite? Especially that guitar hard right around the :55 mark and again later, its during the I'll never be...The walking wounded. Tele maybe?
    Could be the Bose cans...
    Thumbs up!


    Yeah, mate, that's me on all the vox -- thanks for that heady RO comment.   Oh yeah, electric guitar eq -- what a pain, roight?~~Allan


  6. I like this -- creative lyrics and an interesting arrangement.  While this demo needs a bunch of tweaking you have something good to work with here.   I'd like to hear this again when you tighten it up.  Good work... ~~Allan

  7. Hey Kloon, this is a terrific demo of your song -- good mix and arrangement -- instruments and vox are well placed.  If you revisit the mix  -- it seems to me that there's a lack of sparkle in the choruses -- for instance, the harmonies could be louder in the mix -- it could sound "bigger" or something.   Good work~~Allan

  9. I like your mix and the arrangement -- your choice of instruments is interesting and make for some tasty ear candy -- I also like your vocal approach and tone.  ~~Allan

  10. Hey there Freddy -- as I was listening to this two thoughts came to mind -- 1.  I'm digging this and a tad hypnotized by the delivery and 2.  your vocal reminds me of someone I like from the 60s -- the overall timbre and such -- NO, not McCartney! -- I can't think of who it is but I like it.  As to the recording, there are timing issues in places where the feel isn't quite right .  Also, I think that you could pan out some of the instruments to give the mix more space.  I like that bass.  I enjoyed this and wish you a Merry Christmas!~~Allan

    The harmony parts are indeed very good. Liked the way you brought it in on the second line of the second verse. For me, and I don’t know why, The Association came to mind. Blast from the past, eh? Well developed story line, good piece of songwriting, nicely done overall. 


    Hey Tom, I'm pleased that the song resonated with you--thanks for your comments~~Allan

    Cool song - the arrangement works well.  I thought the BGVs stood out as a good part of this song. I liked your lead vocal - Chris Isaac came to mind for me - not the same, but it made me think of him.

    The mix overall sounded good to me - thanks for posting.

    Hey Douglas, thanks for the kind comments mate -- I'm glad you like my demo.~~Allan


  13. Hey Freddy -- on the opening drumbeat I thought it was Rainy Day Women -- it got even better after that.  Love that raunchy guitar tone.  Drums could be up in the mix a bit mate (maybe cut back some reverb).  As to be expected, I enjoyed this from you~~Allan.
