  1. Any feedback, constructive criticism is welcome...
  2. hey hey! I can hear the whole thing and it sounds awesome! Good work man...
  3. Listening to Hostile, Nice playing, tone, (what's your gear?), screaming. Wish I had those screaming skills. Never been a fan of cookie monster singing but respect if you can do it without blowing your voice out. Sounds pretty solid man. Nice job....
  4. The tones/instrument in the beginning between the first two versus sounded a little "Close Encounters" to me. :-D Nice vocals and recording of the instruments. What a great idea for that video! well done...

    This Love

    nice guitar playing and singing. I as well would like to hear another snare than the main one, (even though the snare hits right before the tom fills seem "normal" less thin). The chorus and your performance are really catchy and growing on me. Nice...

    Hold Me Down

    Nice work. It's raw and yet it's fun to see you work with an effect in there. (what is that?). Thanks for sharing...

    I like it, nice pop melody, heavy guitar comes in for a section, nice job. Is there a common verb being used between the drums and other instruments? (The drums seem to be in a different space) I think getting them all in the same space would really tie this track together for the listener. Keep em' commin'
  8. Nice. Makes me think of the music behind the story breaks in Zelda...
  9. So imaginative. Love the way it kept moving and the way the moods shifted. This is really good. I agree with garybrun that working on ambience would take this composition up a notch. Impressive...
  10. Steve, enjoyed this piece. Nice pitch formant effect and playing on the guitar., (Effect pedal?) And the composition was lively never sounding canned. Would this be considered as influenced by "ragtown" music. Nice work...
  11. Nice solid performance all around. Good mix...always nice when a mrs has a good voice to contribute to a project. 😉
  12. So unique. It makes me think of Vai's Flexable Leftovers. I enjoyed it. I noticed instrumentation following the voice at one point, (or is it throughout?). Who's the main influence for something like this, Zappa or...?

    Mondo Lynn

    Laid back breathy intro. I'm really enjoying this. Has a wonderful feel that I get when listening to the instrumental from Honolulu City Lights. I really enjoy this composition. The instruments, construction. Those breathy vocals are legit..love what you're doing man!

    Cool Water

    I like the dense mix with everything move. Nice shimmery with "welcome to the mystery". Wonderful change. The background vox parts sound kewl. I like how things change up and the movement you make in the mix. Real guitar with ebow? Sounds like stuff I'd hear Vai do. I like the long lines you're doing there. This is really interesting and pleasant. Ok, the next song came on and I see the long guitar lines are a part of your style. There's a Steely Dan-ish-ness to your vocals.
  15. Interesting, feelings of Men At Work, Wham. I like it...that guitar tone is excellent and well played, (is that a real guitar?). Nice...

    This Is Your Life

    What a fun intro. Love that arpeggio part, (what instrument/vst is that?) and it all sounds great. I'm with garybrun in that I hear it as a bigger song in my head, (Maybe adding a bunch of instruments during the chorus?) It has the feel of a sunrise/new horizon like Where theStreets Have No Name. And it felt like it ended to quick. Keep up the good work.
  17. Second tune I've listened to by you and I love it that you're not pedestrian and are exploring creative paths. It sounds like beginnings of a theatrical score with a touch of Zappa phrasing here and there. Thanks for sharing...

    I've heard this one before but don't see that I've commented so...Nice intro. Phil Collins-esque in vocal sound and a great performance to boot. The playing is good, the instruments interact well where they come in and out. Nicely done...
  19. Roughly 7 minutes in? "One more year and I'll be gone for good"? It sounds like music for a stage play. Straightforward...nice keys in the change up. Can totally see this in a play. Nice work!

    No Clue

    This is fun. Nice work on the cello. Listening to it on my laptop speakers so I can't tell if there's too much low end. This is smooth. The formant/quack, (guitar?) is a nice touch. All the instruments are having a nice give and take here. I can hear this on a windham hill spring sampler for sure. Nice!
  21. Love the drum opening and the winsome phrasing. With the chosen instruments it almost makes me think of Stuart Copeland' solo stuff. You got chops on the guitar. It might have been interesting to hear the drums change up at some point? If you leave it the way it is now it'll keep a kewl Donkey Kong side scrolling video game feel to it. Listening to your next song and that one feels video gamey as well. (Stewart Copeland did a Spryro game I think). Fun exploration!
  22. Congrats on getting some recording done. As a business owner I know what you're saying... Nice work on a solid foundation. Too much high end content on each track? Try experimenting with taking an LPF and drag it back until it starts taking out content you want to keep. Keep up the good work.

    yeah, I can see snake pliskin moving through a city to this. Fun! Keep em' coming...

    Take it All

    Pretty frenetic with a dance-able groove. At lest we can dance to the collapse... Nice job...
  25. Thanks for listening and receiving it in the spirit that it was made. Lyrics attached. 😉
