  • The Return of...Is Your Music Any Good? Find Out Here!

    This thread, where people would post links to their music and others would critique the music, was always a mainstay of this forum. But it got out of hand, with thousands of posts; and other forums started doing the same thing, so I didn't want to be redundant.



    However...that was then, and this is now. With it being so easy to post your music online, it seems like there's more of a need than ever for people to do honest critiques of other's works. And I thought about all the panels I used to be on for songwriters and such...so, IT'S BACK! Post away.



    One request: Be courteous to others. If there's a big discussion going on about a particular tune, let it play out for a bit before you submit your own material.



    Let's see what happens.........

        Well, all righty, then. I just happen to be recording my second solo album right now, so I might as well get some feedback on my working mixes, bearing in mind, of course, the fact that these are, after all, just MP3 files.



        Lemon Frosting - April F's Mix



        Lovely Day - Mix 09



        BTW, I was formerly, and am still currently, known as "Bunny" over at MusicPlayer.com, for those old skool (actually, middle skool) SSS folkes in da house! Heheh.

          Hey I thought "Lemon Frosting" was a hoot! Really don't go for Rap-influenced anything but then again I'm an old fart. But "Lemon Frosting" was tasty! Pun intended.

          I dig your stuff, Bunny! Very quirky and cool. "Lemon Frosting" is a really happy sorta tune. I really dig your bass playing on the second tune, too..



          The only thing I might change a bit, and it's a personal preference...that odd riff in the second one that takes over about 2/3 the way through...it's cool, but to my conventional ears, it belongs in a different piece, either that or make it shorter and go back to the original theme. I think I know what you're going for, so it's just my opinion.



          And, BTW..."The Fast Food Vortex" is on my regular playlist...



          Okee, I'll put up a target for you dart throwers out there...I was playing around with a nylon string, and I got this sorta "McCartney-esque, Billy Joel-esque" idea for sort of a Bossa-ish tune. It's a rough, so that's fine. I think when this recording was done, I was still trying to cop the phrasing for the verses, so there are a couple of places where the lyrics seem to be kinda "run-on"... but it's basically just nylon acoustic, steel acoustic, and voice...



          I think I've posted it before, but I can't remember where (or why, for that matter)

              Thanks, Ted! And I agree that the transition in "Lovely Day" is quite harsh, but it's intended to be so. It represents a moment of realization, where everything else stops, and an entirely new thought process starts. A revelatory moment, if you will - and I'm sure you will.



              The song is about a raver in the '90s, who suddenly has an epiphany about what's really going on.



              BTW, "The Fast Food Vortex" was a sort of collaboration between me and Jeff da Weasel. The lyrics were taken entirely from a post he made at MP.

                  Wow, I really like that, Ted. While I'm listening to it, I'm cutting the EQ below 100 Hz, and it's sounding very nice and balanced. It's a really sweet song.

                      I have those relatov...er...relevat...er, those moments you speak of once in awh...MMMMM...DONUTS... (snarf snarf snarf narf munch)







                      Thanks for the positive feedback on my tune, too. And while I'm at it, a cover track (if anyone will indulge me on a cover track)...just 'cuz I like the tune. I hear a couple vocal doubles that need cleaning up, but udderwise, my take on an old classic:



                      Walk Away, Renee
