    Crying Run - fear.usa

    Hey CryingRun, Like the atmospheric guitar at the beginning and the verb on the vocals work well. - normally this makes the vocals too buried or 80s sounding - you didn't do that here. I think the drums are too crispy and electronic sounding. Also alot of bass rumble going on and missing some low mids to me. Also in the loud parts, the synths or the guitar effect is too much - its too much a wall of noise to me. I would look at the amount of delay or reverb and back that off - also back off some of the layers. Vocal performance is good but out of tune in places. Kudos for not using auto tune! I think you can do it, just need to do some comping. Good start - and keep at it!
  2. Hi all, Wrote this song - something in a different vein for me. Feedback welcome: LIFE (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) Playing to loose The game of life Taken from granted Until the fight A player looses Empty space Never filled That one last embrace Of Life Life The game of life Frame in picture Froze in time Sadness eternal Memory sublime Always there Empty space Never filled That one last embrace Of Life Life The game of life The guiding hand Throughout my life Made me win But lost fight Love forever Never erase Remember ‘till That one last embrace Of Life Life The game of life
  3. Hi all, Used some lyrics I wrote for a song with different music and fit to a new song idea. Heavily influenced by my favourite band AIC. Feedback welcome on this first draft: HUMAN REMAINS (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) Your metamorphosis is going to plan Remove compassion as much as you can Your lust for wealth’s your one true love And the term mother fucker fits like glove Driven by materialistic gains There’s nothing left, no human remains Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins And no remorse, no human remains How’d you get yourself in this mess Such an asshole, and such a success All your friends you say are bona fied When you’re in crisis will they be by yourside Driven by materialistic gains There’s nothing left, no human remains Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins And no remorse, no human remains You think it’s just a game But you sold your soul Sold your soul for fortune and fame Driven by materialistic gains There’s nothing left, no human remains Heartless soul, ice runs through your veins And no remorse, no human remains No human remains No human remains
  4. Hi all, Just wrote this song idea - just the 1st verse and chorus added so far. Feedback welcome on what I have so far: MIRROR (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) A face in the mirror Looking back at you It’s a poor reflection of What you’re going through It’s tryin’ to tell you Forces propel you Closer to your doom Closer to your tomb You can’t see past your reflection Mirror mirror on the wall Will you find the wherewithall To change the reflection in mirror
  5. Hi all, I did a reboot of an old song “Deaf Ears” - learnt alot since 2014 and my vocals have improved. Here is the updated song - feedback welcome: DEAF EARS (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) Tragedy of justice here I sit Guilty of a crime I didn’ commit A lazy prosecutor took the easy way out Skillfully erasing shadow of doubt My cries and fears, they fall on deaf ears No one hears, it falls on deaf ears An eight by ten box is now my home The crooked prosecutor’s free to roam The wheels of justice ran me over, appeals have been denied Now I know injustice will preside My cries and fears, they fall on deaf ears No one hears, it falls on deaf ears

    Asking Me to Stay

    Hi discatticus, Great song! Good lyrics, nice arrangement and harmonies. Like the lyric for example "Gone as far as gone could ever be". I find the electric guitar actually fits well. I like the unplugged nature of the song and lack of drums - but how about adding some percussion? Shaker maybe some bongos? The production can be better, but thats just polish - the raw song is great! Keep it up!

    Today Is Everything

    Hey Joey, Patty & Dominick Really nice song and good production. "Today is everything" catches you! Great vocal performance - very expressive! Guitar fills are devine! Love this lyric "But even the deepest footprints get washed away, They all disappear in the sands of yesterday". Some critique (please take it as positive): - I would look through lyrics and look for ways to remove as many word and syllabals s as possible - makes the words easier to understand - some examples: For a man like me, it really doesn’t make much sense - For a man like me, really don't make much sense He’s gettin’ on and talkin’ ’bout what’s round the bend - He’s gettin’ on talkin’ ’bout what’s round the bend - But don't change the chorus - it is perfect - I would bring the bass up a but more in the mix or EQ more low end. Other than that the balance is really good.

    Tomahawk

    Hey RoadDog, I like the vibe of the song. Agree with other - the intro is good. The production needs some work - mix is off - timing, drums are low - guitars could be double tracked to add some depth. Like the vocal processing - thats the highlight to me. You vary it up alot - I like that! Like the simple solo - does the job well! The song idea is really cool. If you worked on the production you are onto a really good song! Keep it up and rock on!

    Face Up - Rock Song Idea

    Hi there, Partial vocals added - feedback on these welcome.
  10. Hi all, Working on a new rock song idea - partial vocals - 2nd verse and potentially some additional fills pending. Not sure if it is worth working on further or if it is "nothing special" - feedback welcome: FACE UP (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) You’re at war, within yourself Put your pride upon the shelf We need to fail, and fail to need That self-doubt to proceed Yes it hurts, yes its dirt Soiling your will to reassert Lift your head up to the sky Give it another try So you failed You’re better man Don’t hide in shame Just face up to it Face it down You’ll rise again Never know if you don’t face up to it VERSE 2 PENDING So you failed You’re better man Don’t hide in shame Just face up to it Face it down You’ll rise again Never know if you don’t face up to it BREAK/SOLO So you failed You’re better man Don’t hide in shame Just face up to it Face it down You’ll rise again Never know if you don’t face up to it
  11. Hi all, Working on an Alternative Rock song idea. Here is the complete song first draft - needs a car mix test and some refinement. Feedback welcome on what I have so far: REALITY (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) You’re mystified Why they can’t see Your point of view Your reality You’re blinded by What you can see You see right through Their reality Time to change Your perception range Perception………. Is reality Should wake you up When nobody Listens to you Your philosophy Open your eyes And you will see What others think Their reality Time to change Your perception range Perception………. Is reality SOLO Time to change Your perception range Perception………. Is reality
  12. Thanks for the feedback! 1st verse is written - see updated link above and text and please let me know your further feedback.
  13. Hi all, Working on an Alternative Rock song idea. So far I have written the basic song licks, 1st verse and chorus vocals. I think it has a Velvet Revolver feel to it. Feedback welcome on what I have so far: WHIPLASH (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton) Drop me off here Won’t go on your ego trip Hope you enjoy the ride You fooled me once Behind with your piston grip Jekyll changed to Hyde You won the game I took the blame Payback will come From those that you maim I will enjoy Watching you fall Fall from the sky Fallin’ aflame I think it's gonna end for you badly Route you're going, you're gonna crash Kick me down, crawl on me, chasin' madly Power control, gives you whiplash Kick me down, crawl on me Gives you whiplash Power control Gives you whiplash Kick me down, crawl on me Gives you whiplash Took a bad route Now take the backlash VERSE 2 (Pending) I think it's gonna end for you badly Route you're going, you're gonna crash Kick me down, crawl on me, chasin' madly Power control, gives you whiplash Kick me down, crawl on me Gives you whiplash Power control Gives you whiplash Kick me down, crawl on me Gives you whiplash Took a bad route Now take the backlash
