    Moso - I meant the whole song. It might not sound better, but I just mean you could try a version where you mix the vocals so they are louder, without re-recording anything.

    Here are my thoughts for each song: Middle Class Blues - tunesmithth - Great guitar work. Old - Moso - You might want to try a version where the vocals are louder in the mix. They seem kind of faint. Bottle of Whiskey - roaddog - The song is romantic, but then the chorus seems not so romantic. It is not comparing her to a bottle of whisky that throws me, that is fine, I think it is that the chorus does not rhyme, and also that those 2 lines seem like an unfinished description to sum up your love for her. Maybe it would be better if the chorus was longer, something like: Ohhhh! You go to my head like a bottle of whiskey! Yeahhh! Then you knock me right off of my feet. I stumble into your arms just a man incomplete You Lift Me Up - Jason Kalman - Catchy melody, and great singing. I Got The Satellite - ScenesFromPalacio - I like the lyrics, and the hook is catchy. Islamorada - neuroron - Great beach pop. Very professional sounding. Your Life - Oswlek - Pretty, sweet, and meaningful. Not My Fault - Triffid & SongWolfe - I agree, real drums would be a nice addition to the song. The melody is catchy. Future Story Told - HoboSage - I like the epic quality of the song, and the dreamy/spacey/futuristic quality to the music. Even The Devil - DonnaMarilyn - I know you still need to finalize the mix, so I would suggest the vocals be louder. They need to sound more powerful, because the singer has a powerful voice, it is just too low in the mix. I like the singer a lot. Where do the Cold Winds Blow? - SlowD - I like your guitar playing and singing. You might want try a version with your vocals a little softer in the mix, or somehow mixed better with the guitar (I am bad at mixing so I can't give advice on how to actually do it). Walking Tall - Murphster & Kuya - I like the symphony sounds around halfway through, and the hook is catchy. In general though, the song gets a little boring after a while, I think maybe because the chorus has the same exact music as the verses (even though the melody is different).

    Song Title: Getaway Plan Lyrics/Melody: Eric Borgos, Music/Vocals: Elliott Sheridan Verse 1: Everybody with their heads buried in their phones working working for a life made of bills and loans Take me to an island oh so far away settle down on the beach for permanent vacay Pre-Chorus: Live every minute like its happy hour plant little seeds of love and let them flower Chorus: Gotta find a way to run while we still can... my getaway plan Verse 2: I wanna get lost in the palm trees take a lazy nap feel the summer breeze Tradin' stress for a drink a pink umbrella fun n laughter in the air keep ya chill and mellow Pre-Chorus: Live every minute like its happy hour plant little seeds of love and let them flower Chorus: Gotta find a way to run while we still can... my getaway plan

    Here are my comments for each song: Velvet Dream - ScenesFromPalacio - I am a little unclear as to the meaning of the lyrics, but they paint a nice picture, and the music is good. Good - RoadDog - The song is good. The Usual Suspects - tunesmithth - The lyrics, singing, and guitar are all great. And I like the harmonica. Something about the song seems plain/empty to me, like maybe it could use another instrument in some parts. Tables Turn - DanJames - Very catchy. I like everything about it. Fade - Jambrains - I like how the song progresses from few instruments to many then back to piano. It keeps it interesting. Ashes of Her Bridges - moptop - You might want to try slowing the song down (you should be able to easily adjust the speed in your audio program without having to re-record the song). The music is sad/romantic ballad, but when you sing it you are trying to pack a lot of word in each line, which makes it less emotional. Mountain - SOD - Your voice is very nice, but the vocals get somewhat boring, I think because of your live mix. It is more focused on the guitar than your voice, so your vocals are in the background. The lyrics are good. Because You Are - HoboSage - It is romantic, and the music is atmospheric and catchy. The chorus is memorable and soars. 4exo27 (Forever as you are) - ClintLeonard - It started off a little slow so I was hoping it would lead into a big chorus. The chorus was nice, but not exciting, although the 2nd half of the song moved along very well. It is romantic, which is what you were going for. Sounds a little like Oasis. 4our 5ive - Boy frevm - The beat is catchy, and your singing is somewhat hypnotic and calming. If I had not read the lyrics I would have no idea what the song is about though. Gone Away - Triffid - The rhymes seem a little cliche, but your singing it nice and the music is professional and catchy. If I heard this song on the radio, like after a Philip Philips song, I would think it was from a "real" singer (signed with a record label).

    Song Title: I Am Broken Lyrics/Melody: Eric Borgos Vocals/Music: Chris Davidson Verse 1: Sometimes hearts are not made to last all alone in a universe so endlessly vast I feed on your energy you feed on mine trapped in a house of glass built under a shrine Chorus: Time, it can't erase all the words our lips have spoken I'm lost I'm dark I am broken I'm lost I'm dark I am broken I'm lost I'm dark I am broken Verse 2: Sometimes I cry but don't feel the pain no signs of life on such barren terrain What takes me higher is what brings me down I still feel your touch when you're not around Chorus: Love, takes one last breath as it shatters in slow motion I'm lost I'm dark I am broken I'm lost I'm dark I am broken Outro: I'm lost I'm dark and I'm broken I'm lost I'm dark and I'm broken I'm lost I'm dark and I am broken I'm lost I'm dark and I'm broken
  6. Profit / Then It Comes

    I found the vocals very hard to understand once the Then It Comes part started. Other than that, it was nicely done.
  7. Little Big Lies

    Very creative musically and melodically. I especially like how you changed up the last 20% of so of the song.
  8. Where The Sun Keeps Shining Down

    I agree with ClintLeonard. I thought the prechorus was fine, but when I heard the first chorus, I had to check your lyrics to make sure that really was the chorus because it sounded like a prechorus or verse. But, then the amazing "real" chorus came in, and I was blown away, so you should really focus on that. It is killer! And, the whole second half of the song is very creative musically/melodically and takes it to even higher places.
  9. Yard Sale

    Great concept for a song, and great execution. The "Punjabi sword" line stands out well. As far as possible lyrical changes the other listeners pointed out, I usually get nitpicky with lyrics, but I really didn't listen to them that closely because there was so much other amazing stuff going on musically and vocally.
  10. White Lake Country Club

    I like the music and vocals, but the lyrics remind me somewhat of a jingle or commercial. Not something I will remember later, but the good performance made it enjoyable.
  11. Seerz

    Catchy music. Reminds me a little of Dave Edmunds. I didn't like the lyrics that much when I read them before the song started, but somehow you pulled it off!
  12. My Avalon

    I read the lyrics and instantly thought this must be a hard rock type power ballad. And I love power ballads, and much of the song was exactly what I liked, but the problem is I think it sounded too "easy listening" up until 1:15 in the song, so it might lose the listener if they are expecting something more hard rocking.
  13. Seasons of Life

    Great music and production. Very professional sounding. I agree with msza, that maybe something different could be done with the poem part, in terms of how it sounds. But the fact that is was spoken did not bother me at all, and having the song long is not a problem, because the song never gets boring for me. And the harmonies in the last 10%-20% of the song are a perfect touch.
  14. See About A Girl

    I like the piano, and I like the overall acoustic feel of the song. I also like how the music and vocals get more intense for a while around 2/3 of the way through the song, and then it quiets down again at the end.
  15. Flotsam & Jetsam

    Everything about it is good, other than I agree with some of the others, that it could have ended earlier (like around 3:00).
