    How I do vocals

    I have yet to add any distortion on my vox tracks, though it's more due to lack of familiarity than distaste for the technique.

    The Greatest Story Never Told Verse 1: The sweet taste of wine the curve of your lips an innocent touch with just fingertips Living in glances can't open that door a windowless prison never to be more Chorus: The angels in Heaven the birds and the bees all moving together like winds on the seas Gotta chase that freedom before we get old our love is the greatest story that's never been told Verse 2: Dancing with danger a slow masquerade just fantasies dreaming in beds that we made Can't leap without looking cross over the line while safe in the limits of this grand design Chorus: The angels in Heaven the birds and the bees all moving together like winds on the seas Gotta chase that freedom before we get old our love is the greatest story that's never been told Our love is the greatest story that's never been told

    'Why is modern art so bad?'

    I know @Tapper Mike mentioned accreditation, but this isn't an apt description of this specific instance. It isn't that Prager hasn't been "deemed worthy", it's that, despite fancying themselves a bastion of critical thinking, PU regularly posts material that contains falsities and outright lies. Their credibility issues are their own doing. In fairness, this subject doesn't seem like one their prior bias would relate to. But, like a self-important acquaintance you've caught in numerous lies before, their history must be taken into consideration when evaluating any claims made.

    I Took a Train

    Even if I grant this as being true, how does this assessment address Paul's critique in any way? Rather than being so dismissive, wouldn't it be wise to incorporate the things that make "CoNO" superior into our own work?

    You are being much too kind here. Much.

    Child of the Radio Music and lyrics by Oswlek Child of the Radio Have you heard it all? The beauty in the melody Felt the rise, and then the fall All the way down You lived your life in stereo With your headphones on Every word, every note Cradled you and then it's gone All the way down Did I catch you on the way down? Buried in the audio An avalanche of sound Does each sweet serenade still Steal your will and shake the ground? All the way down Did I catch you on the way the down?

    What I Need

    The balance between the guitars and vocals is much better now, well done. Regrettably, with that taking up less attention, I can now hear some rather prominent timing issues. I also agree now more than ever that the second verse vocal is way overdone and should either be used as a high harmony or scrapped altogether. To my ears, the song isn't asking for more from the lead vocal than the same type of performance as the first verse, so when you come in so intensely it really throws me off. And it does it even when I am prepared for it on a repeat listen.

    Call Me By Your Name Verse 1: Calm, quiet Walking through the water with you in my Arms, tight and Careful not to let you float away Pre-chorus: Your golden hair skims the surface The sunlight catches your eyes Your fingers wrapped round my wrist And I feel your skin against mine Chorus: You looked at me today And I knew that we were one You took my breath away Together we'll stay in the light of the sun Verse 2: Blood at the back of my tongue Words, biting hard, and threatening to tear us apart But our hearts are hungry and hard If we stay where we are, love, would you still float away? Pre-chorus: Your fingernails dig into my back And I whisper your name Face in your hair, I breathe the scent Every touch is never the same Bridge: Summer holds back the swell of time Over seasons' prime, she reigns But now as the flowers die, Will we ever find a way? Kiss me hard, love me violent, while The fleeting fire fades Bittersweet, the nectar dries As you call me by your name Chorus: You looked at me today And I knew that we were one Disarm me with your pain Together we'll stay in the light of the sun Ending: Bittersweet, the nectar dries As you call me by your name Take me back to that summertime And I'll call you by mine

    Another Little Angel Has Arrived In Heaven V1 Words seem so feeble in a moment like this So I just hold you close And give you a mother’s kiss your tiny body, so tired from hanging on I know soon that your pain will be gone. Kneeling, pleading, needing you to stay But with one last breath, you just slipped away [Chorus] Another little angel has arrived in Heaven Another child will touch God's hand No sins that needed to be forgiven Let the angels carry you into Beulah Land V2 You seem so small laying in that satin bed, with five pink roses crowning your precious head I watched as Gentle hands laid you to rest in God's mercy, he knew it was best A parent’s pain that will never heal my comfort is, I know Heaven is real. [chorus] Another little angel has arrived in Heaven Another child will touch God's hand No sins that needed to be forgiven Let the angels carry you into Beulah Land V3 How could you going first be by design? why was it me that was left behind? In God's presence, Your journey is complete but for me, it is bittersweet In the painful silence, I hear your voice And the simple word you whispered was "Rejoice" [Repeat Chorus] Another little Angel has arrived in Heaven Another child will touch God's hand No sins that needed to be forgiven Let the angels carry you into Beulah Land

    TIME Verse 1: We were a young love with no care in the world. Driving around all night feeling unstoppable. The music was turned all the way up. We loved feeling the speakers and base erupt. We always treated the night as our playground. Whatever we did you never let me down. Verse 2: You said nothing will ever change what we have. We’ll always be together, I'm your better half. We made many plans of places to see. It was us against the world just you and me. All of the moments we shared went by so fast. I always thought what we had would last. But... Chorus: Time, it goes by so fast, it goes by so slow it stops; where does it go? Time, is not on my side it’s no friend of mine it’s not good to me; oh how I wish it would be. Verse 3: I was never lost when you were by my side. I felt as if we could do anything we tried. I know you have your life and I have mine But I just miss having you with me sometimes. It’s sad that you became someone I once knew. Time Heals most things, but not the thoughts of you. Chorus: Time, it goes by so fast, it goes by so slow it stops; where does it go? Time, is not on my side it’s no friend of mine it’s not good to me; oh how I wish it would be.

    Human Doings and Human Beings All we work hard to achieve No more than streets of scattered leaves Driven to material dreams Gears turn like small machines Wary of our fellow man We hide our hopes where we can Only give the surface things away dont you see there’s another way What do you do? I don't care If you’ll share With me how you are feeling What do you do? break the skin Let me in To what you are seeing You’re not a human doing You’re a human being Too eagerly we define ourselves like books all neatly lined on shelves Tinker tailor, rich or poor Open them and there's a little more Read all the pages and look through We’re so much more than what we do Doctors, bakers, beggars and thieves Same branch, just different leaves What do you do? I don't care If you’ll share With me how you are feeling What do you do? surface skin Let me in To what you are seeing You’re not a human doing You’re a human being

    The Rain The darkness has stayed for such a long time The truest of friends have given up on me The darkness steals all your hopes away Will I ever rise, off this wounded knee I thought that I was strong enough To go against the grain I thought that I was healed enough But I’m not ready for the rain…. The weight of the world crushes my mind That’s where the only hope I have is within Will this time be the last time for me Can I crawl out from underneath again I thought that I was strong enough To go against the grain I thought that I was healed enough But I’m not ready for the rain…. The night time lives on endlessly Clouds gather around my guilt The odds get worse by the day How can I climb the walls I’ve built I thought that I was strong enough To go against the grain I thought that I was healed enough But I’m not ready for the rain….

    WAITING ON YOU BLUES Duet (key: male part = regular font; female part = italics; together = bold) Ch1: I've been waiting on you (4x) V1: Seems like I always wait on you My patience is wearing thru for you, oh you Waiting on your help, to go somewhere To get off the phone, to fix your hair, oh you, oh you Ch2: I've been waiting on you (4x) V2: Seems like I always wait on you My patience is wearing thru for you, oh you Making your dinner, folding your clothes Your on the couch, watchin' your shows, oh you, oh you {Interlude} V3 Seems like I always wait on you But then I think, why sit and stew?, its you, oh you The truth's I'll wait on you all day To see you smile and walk my way anew, oh you V4 And though you sometimes rile me dear I want you close, I need you near, oh you, yes you Waitin on each other, its part of our glue That's why I'll always wait on you, oh you, oh you Ch3: We were waiting on each other (I will always wait on you) There's no waiting for another (I will always wait on you) Without you I would be blue I will always wait on you, oh you

    How I do vocals

    It's not exactly what you are talking about, but I usually put a sidechain on my delays. That way, the vox comes through clear with the echo dominating the in-between spaces.
