  1. Pretty great sound you got going on here Dave. I really enjoyed it. The only section I thought didn't stack up was the bridge/break. It kind of took me out of the song. Until the "So safe in your little puddle." I truly dug that and where it went from there. It could be that the song as a whole sounds very inspired and that part just didn't to me. Just the 3 lines of that. Killer vibe. Did you play the solo or is it midi of some sort?
  2. It all depends on how much time I have to do it. So I don't do it very often. I do however have a fairly large amount of songs, chorus', hooks and lyrics flowing in my head constantly. Which is part of the process for me. I'd say I have about 7 or 8 that I've constantly been playing in my mind over the past 5 or so years. Just waiting to be produced.
  3. Sorry to hear about your uncle Dek. Glad to hear the first thing that pops in your mind when you think of him are good times. I won't comment much on the mix since I'm pretty awful at that. Sometimes the instruments compete a little with the vocals but other than that I like it and think it's great. For what it doesn't have in sadness in the first part, you make up for it from 2:35 on. Which, I do like that part, but also wonder what it would be like to take it out the way you brought the song in. Considering how the song came about and why, I think what you've done fits really well. If it were to be a song with a different ambition or goal, I do think it could be worth taking a stab at ending it more upbeat. Glad you got some time to work on music. Life does get pretty damn busy doesn't it … until it isn't and then eventually you long for the old days. XOXO - KCD

  9. Yeah I liked it. I think it took me by surprise as I found it unexpected. It did flow me right through as it should. On the first listen, with the changes, I kept going back thinking "What? Where are we going? What just happened?" But it did take me right through. I guess if I did have one thing to say it would be I'd like to possibly hear what those low auto-tuned vocals were saying.
  10. Yeah, I used to watch it all the time from the farthest back I can remember up until about 7 or 8. I think they actually influenced me when it comes to comedy. I'd bet my Grandma would set me in front of the TV with them on when she watched me. I especially remember watching a show and the news about Bud Abbott passing away. I think that stuck with me also. I was about 4 or 5 then.
  11. Hmmm. Interesting. This one is a doozy for me. There isn't a typical song structure going on … and I like that about it. Each section sounds great and flows into each other well. Are there some really low electro-vocals going on in parts? Part of it makes me wonder, and part of it fascinates me. It all kind of fascinates me actually. I really dig it and cannot honestly say what I, or you, should or could do. I mean I have some thoughts, but I don't think they are really relevant with what you're doing. In my eyes, that's gotta be a good thing. Nice one, I really enjoy it. Randy
  12. What's up Dave. It's been awhile. Awesome tune you have here. Like the others I love the arrangement, music and performance. All very excellent. Only a couple of thoughts. I think all the parts in parenthesis could/should be stronger. I think having more background vocals there would really pump it up and give the feeling of a larger group of people having those thoughts. The other is verse 2. It seems out of place in this tune. By itself it is a great verse without a doubt. But it doesn't carry the emotion that the rest of the song does IMO. Most of the tune is about peoples feelings concerning the subject and that one isn't. And, immigrants can still come here so to me it's almost saying "Lady Liberty is still here so come and join the hell-hole." Which just feels out of place in this piece. Glad to hear another one from you. Have a good one. Randy

  14. Awesome. Nicely done. Randy
  15. Great tune Chumpy. I had trouble making out some of the lyrics but otherwise, a nice rocking tune.
