I had mistakenly posted this in the "Backstage with the Band" forum:

 

We made this album about 4 years ago when we were in college but never really did anything with it. School, careers, family, etc. kinda put a stop to our momentum.

 

I've uploaded 5 random songs from the album. I don't really have a preference as to what song to get feedback on. Our sound can be quite different from one song the next.

I appreciate any and all comments.

Lady Tongue--

 

The vocals kicked in just as I was getting really sick of the intro. I like the arrangement, with the arpeggio guitar and the synth pad, but the singer sounds like he's phoning in an Eddie Vedder/Layne Staley impersonation. The effect on his voice really dampens the sound.

 

There isn't a strong hook--some good atmosphere, but I'm not walking away from this with anything in my head.

That song is definitely not our most radio friendly. The vocals are most definitely the weak part in these songs......unfortunately I'm not a singer, or I'd try to do better. I'm just a lowly guitarist.

 

Either way, I appreciate the criticism.

 

----Edited to add:

 

The "synth pad" is nothing more than volume swells on a Les Paul through a Dano echo and a Marshall.

 

I thought it came out pretty neat to just be volume swells.
