Chase,

A like the guitar work, and a lot of the funky things going on with the vocals. I don't think that the percussion is problematic, there are a few spots where I think that you could do well to have a a B-3 organ, or some keyboard in here. I guess you are doing everything by yourself, so that would be even more work.

I liked the harmonies, though they could be a little tighter here and there. Otherwise a very enjoyable experimental piece. Thanks for sharing!

Ever After Disaster gave feedback to Ted Kindig for “(deleted)”:
It's not perfect but it's not horrible- very rough sounding. Very garagey. Wasn't extremely good but it wasn't extremely bad either- somewhere in the middle.

Yup, I tend to favor a dirtier sound. Specifics tend to make for more valuable feedback, but I also understand just not feeling something for whatever reason, which can be tricky to articulate. Regardless, thanks for the input!

J. Wager gave feedback to tom clark for “Learn To Frown”:
This sounds like something of Green Day's "Warning" album, sounds good. Have you considered mixing and mastering?

J. Wager gave feedback to The Amorous for “One More Thing”:
very well done. The singing flows really nicely atop the piano chords, in fact the whole song flows great. Don't see a thing that needs criticizing.

Couldn't agree more! This is like classical music. Gotta love the jingle bells in there too. More jingle bells baby :D Good find J!

Such a cool song man, and such a great technique as well. Wish I had 1/2 your talent. Drumbeat 1/2 way through was quite enjoyable as well :D

Good seeing you yesterday, please keep in touch, and I found an app you might have fun with?

The Middlemen gave feedback to The Problem We All Live With for “Tiger”:
Very nice and mellow. A sleeping tiger??? Only critique: It could build up a little bit more in terms of dynamics -- like a crescendo at the end? Just my two cents. I do like the syncopation about 2:50 in, and the little guitar motif there as well. Guitar could be slightly tighter, rhythmically though, perhaps...

What DAW are you using?
Thank you for sharing your music :D

The Middlemen gave feedback to Lorenzo Pagano for “I Hit My Head”:
Sorry about your head! At least the music that came out of it is rocking :) Are you planning to add any vocals to this?

The main riff is solid, and the drum track sounds nice, the only piece of advice I would have is maybe syncopate the drumbeat a little bit more, make it a little bit longer, and add some vocals, but I like the underlying rhythm and chord structure of the piece.

Thanks :D

WalaWalaWala gave feedback to Ted Kindig for “(deleted)”:
Great one, Ted. Very raspy vocals, and I like these guitar changes as well, has a great folksy feel to it. What are they or is that top-secret? Could compare this to Burt Bacharach or Cat Stevens.

I liked the minimalism from 2:45 on ;p

Megatherian gave feedback to Ted Kindig for “(deleted)”:
I can't help but be reminded by the Barenaked Ladies by this song. I laughed when I read the lyrics. This is a really funny and pretty well done song. I like the vocals, but they need to be a bit more on the beat. Sometimes there is a miniscule deviation from the digital drums and it gets distracting. Another thing is that the guitar tone could use some tweaking because, as the only guitar part in the song, it needs to stick out and sound good to the ear. This is all opinion of course, but I think these things could really send the song into overdrive.
