What does this service include?
- A dedicated human being, with musical knowledge and integrity, will listen to your song and give you an honest and thoughtful review with valuable feedback.
- One submission per month will be featured on our *in development* Blog (after the artist grants permission to feature their song)
What is the cost?
- It's free! Just follow our channels (no actual obligation, you'll get a review either way, but this is helpful for our network)
- Social Media Links at the bottom of this green section (You must follow us on one of these, we will DM your review)
Why are we doing this?
- Independent artists spend hours upon hours of their time creating a work of art that deserves it's full attention while being reviewed.
- The goal of this program is to help musicians improve on their final product.
- Improved final products result in an improved Independent music scene.
- Remember that this will only be one opinion, from a fellow musician, who is donating their time to provide thoughtful and thorough feedback.
- The feedback will be honest. Prepare to potentially have your feelings hurt. Take all criticism in a positive manner. Text makes it tough to convey tone.
- Songs over 6 minutes in length are subject to a "skipped around" review where the entire song may not be heard.
"Right off the bat I can tell you that this isn't my style of music, so I'll do my best: This song has a great message, I think if you want it to really reach the masses (I think it should be heard by many), you might clean up the production. It sounds thin, you've got a good stereo image, but it still seems empty. "
"Really good instrumentation between the guitar and piano. It's a song that I, personally, hear once or twice and enjoy, but I don't go seeking it out to listen again. Although, now that I've reached the whistling bridge, I can ABSOLUTELY see this section being used as an intro for a cartoon or a children's show. I wouldn't call it radio-friendly, but I think you should aggressively market that section (3:12 - 3:54, especially 3:32 - 3:54) for the mentioned purposes, maybe even for a children's video game. That section is a goldmine in the right genre."
"From the 3rd note in I wanted to spark something up. Nice dynamic contrast between the verse and chorus, bringing in the female vocal addition was a nice touch. I couldn't really follow the song's storyline, the chorus vocals seemed like just throwing together some words that rhyme. Feel free to hit me with the meaning in a message, I'm all about understanding symbolism and stuff."
"I'm not getting anything special here, guys. It's just another run of the mill alternative rock song that doesn't grab my attention. I could see it as an album filler that gets lost in the background, I can't see it on the radio (Don't take my opinion as gospel). The production seems to be lacking some dynamics and some punch in the instruments, the guitars are too upfront and the drums are buried during "Where did I go wrong?" this is distracting and takes away from the song. The harmonies have a bit too much reverb for my taste, and the vocals are mostly unintelligible. I think with a better mix, this song could be better than "run of the mill".
"Intro - Love the piano/bass relationship here, it's a great blend, the guitar lead adds that next level. Personally not a fan of the guitar's tone/sound, but still nicely done. Verse - Yes, I can hear a LOT of Pink Floyd influence here, this my kind of shit. Vocals have great range, a bit "whiney" for the music imho, but the high notes are beautifully hit - so I might concede a bit on my previous criticism on the vox. Great instrumentation, exactly what I'd expect to hear from classic Pink Floyd if they were still making music in 2020 (I mean, not nearly as musically complete, but you're being compared to the greatest band that's ever banded right now, that should serve as a huge compliment in it's own). Chorus - Oh man, I love it. Keep that Floydness going. This is, again, a perfect blend instrumentally for a Floyd comparison. The distorted rhythm guitar sound/tone is perfect, and the acoustic strum coming through ever so slightly is a wonderful touch. Is that a slide guitar or a synth I'm hearing in there around the 2:00 mark? In the same way I'd compare Greta Van Fleet to Led Zeppelin, I could maybe make a very similar comparison to you and Floyd (based on this song). What makes GVF so special is that they brought back Led Zeppelin, but completely original music. Bridge - alright, I'm done with the compliments and comparisons, it's time to relax and listen as a fan, and not critically. I'll be playing this again, and I'll be finding it on Spoitfy to do so. It's going to be added to my playlist "The 'I listen to everything' Mixtape Playlist". You have a new Spotify follower, as well as SoundCloud and YouTube. Job extremely well done, anyone who downvotes this has lost their entire mind."
