Great tune, great performance. Is it on the radio? To me it's a no 1 hit!

Outstanding. Really good.

I would call it indie... no rock. I would put this with the same class as say Franz Ferdinand (not saying you sound like them in particular, more like that genre of fun poppy rock not rock).

Cheers

Hi, Roger, this is a great song. Very well thought out and nicely performed with a nice smooth ‘Indie’ style mix. I really like the vocals and the harmonies are outstanding. I have to agree with James and Shad, I’m definitely picking up the Franz Ferdinand vibe.

Nice job, sounds radio ready to me!

Great song!

Kind of reminded me of B.O.C, but only in some wierd way. Not really sure why and I don't even really listen to them. I don't like doing that "sounds like thing" but for what ever reason it did.

It had many catchy elements like the verse groove, chorus vocals and straight foward simple short bridge and solo to break up the song nicely. Nice job! I enjoyed it.

When i read you were forwarded for a movie, i instantly thought Howard Shore has been sacked, and you will be doing "The Hobbit" To be hones, your talent wouldn't be out of place on the big screen.
Good luck with the forward.

I enjoyed this song very much. I agree with James Re: sounding like Franz ferdinand's stuff, and i'm sure they would bite your hand off if you offered this to them, as it has #1 written all over it.

Regards
Mark.

Very, very cool tune, I agree that this sounds very pro. Ive always loved that fat bass sound that you have, very meaty yet clear and sitting just right, kudos to you. I remember when I first came upon this site mabey a year ago or so and you had posted your song caught in a trap and I was just like holy ***t, this dude is using cakewalk and it sounds frick'n professional. Thanks for giving me something to shoot for and for all the great music, I am definately a fan.

Great song, and that intro (and at the break before the solo, and at the end) was a really cool section. Excellent vox as well.


Thanks Doug.

RLD ...

Starts out like a Santana tune .... Almost sounds like a late 60's TV show theme. I think you nailed this one well!!!!! Great playing, Great feel to it.


Yeah, really digging this one. Nice use of Dynamics ( Take it down ... bring it back up again) ... Very commendable ... ( This is so often overlooked on so many songs here )

It sounds very "contemporary". I also would have a hard time defining some of the geres today.

Aside from that, this sounds really cool. Nice mix and I like the tones, the chord structure, snappy, powerful, great vocals, I like the chorus and break. Damn fine stuff Roger, I would study under you in heartbeat. Very impressive.

Ha ha...
I appreciate your comments Daryl.

Fantastic work, Roger! No crits - this sounds great to my ears! good clean mix, love the fx on the vocals, but glad you didn't do that all through the song. guitar playing is excellent. great work!

Hey Todd,
If B.O.C. means Blue Oyster Cult, that is indeed a weird one...haven't listened to them much, so maybe you're right.
Thanks bud!

Good work. I like the song and the mix works well her at the office on my cheesey speakers. I'm sure ti will translate well to other systms.

I like the feel of this and the mood is dramatic. Its like rock and roll with a bit of Tango feeling. Very punchy..

Good luck on the placement

I haven't been hanging around here but stopped by tonight and saw you had a song on page one, being a fan of yours I had to give it a lesson.

Love it, the vocals are so stylistic and sound great. For a movie, I can definately hear it. Congrats.

So far I really like the intro ..... Yeah, this rocks!!! .... Bass, Guitars and Drums all blend together very nicely. Nice guitar soloing ... catchy little ditties !! Vocals are really well done as well. There's going to be a nice bridge comming up soon ... Yup There it is ... Maybe a good guitar solo?
Yup ... There it is ..... O.K. Were coming to the home stretch ...

Very Nice and Well Done.... Good Mix as well!!!!

This was pretty bad ass. Truthfully, this song is probably my new favorite from you. I've listened to most (if not all) a while ago. I don't remember this one. There seems to be more of you and less strategy on this song.

 Yes, I'm back ...with minions. Luv, D

I must say "SWEET"!!! I like it. Very cool rock groove. Interesting throughout. Your vocal reminds me of a band called Fastball which is a group I like quite a bit.

I can't stand Franz Ferdinand but I love this what is with that?

I can hear the comparison, but the vox are much better and the instrumentation is tighter and more considered in the context of the tune which is a great one btw.

Completely top drawer throughout. Kudos.

Hi Mitch,
I believe I used Groove Agent for drums on this...and bass was just a standard pic bass sample from a Roland sound module.
In other words, midi data entered from a keyboard triggering samples.
Thanks.

Hi, RLD,

Darned impressive song, arrangement, and recording. This is different from other songs of yours that I've listened to, which speaks to your abilities as a composer.

This song is smoking hot, totally radio friendly and catchy. I am humbled by your abilities as both a songwriter and player/singer. Incredible job.

Best regards,
Bill
