REVIEWS FOR AMERICAN IDOL AUDITION

GARAGEBAND

Sweet Mood The singer has a very pretty and unique voice (though reminds me a little of Pat Benatar). Sweet mood set in this song, as well as chillin' harmonies. The harmonica accents are a nice touch. Overall, a well produced and arranged song. Will listen again. - jvmyka from Baltimore, Maryland

NASHVILLE,TENN

cool vocals and harmonies combine for a cool sound. The song could stand to be shorter though. The vocals soundlike a young Linda Ronstat (sp). Nice work - jfharris91 from Nashville, Tennessee

UNITED KINGDOM

This has a folky sound in the intro Then when the vocals come in it reminds me of those 70's bands that came in the wake of ABBA. I love the harmonica, it gives the whole song a distinctive character. It is such a nice touch. This is like the musical equilivent of being in a costume shop, preparing for a fancydress party. So many colours and textures. Incongruity abounds. I think this must be a band because,despite this musical "flitting about" there is something that anchors the sound, keeps it rooted and coherent. The players are all coming from the same place, going in the same direction. There is much to critcise technically I suppose. Sometimes the voice is a little off in places, the recording is not top notch clear and there are areas that could be polished up. But these are elements. And magic is not about the elements. Magic is about the whole experience,the general impression., the overall appreciation. This sounds like a group of Happy, fun living wizards Excellent stuff. - gilderfish from N'pton, United Kingdom

GARAGEBAND

Unique Girl vocalist has an amazing voice. Very easy listenig song.. Although I feel there is something missing I want a more driving beat with the guitars. But they may just be my opinion. Deffinately keep it up. Extra Credit: Female Vocals, Guitars, Production, Originality, Coolest Chill-Out Track. - Hanover Speed, Indiana

Teeside,England,United Kingdom

Nee and Lancy very different intro, though it could go any of three ways at first. Nice to hear a male/female duet with a slight cowboy feel (I'm a big Nancy and Lee fan). Rhythm is a bit stilted, is it a machine? I'm sure I've heard the melody before but, hey, there's only twelve notes right? It works well generally all over. - AndyJohnson from Middlesbrough, Teesside, United Kingdom

GARAGEBAND

review both vocals are excellent. piano lines are good. like the use of harmonica. came out of nowhere, in a good way. song length is good..not too long. like the guitar solo. has a good tone. Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Female Vocals. - braindoll Dix Hills, New York

Lead vocals are decent.Nice leads. Keep on doing your thing and try to keep pushing for your goals. - benjaminkyle from Lorain, Ohio

Valley Forge,PA

lovely female vocal The melody got repetitive pretty quickly, but the female singer has a very nice voice. The unison singing was pretty as well. I liked the delicate touches the lead guitar added. - Phyllis_Heitjan from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

Munich,Germany

Beautiful... Reminds me of a nick cave song. Good! great atmosphere, nice subtle backing vocals, and strong lead vocals. Gives the feeling of wide open spaces and dusk, deserted roads, mist. headlights in the clouds. cold chicago wind spot on...! great stuff. this song has a special ability to produce images. at least in my mind. well done. Nice duet. Production good too. - creaturesville from Munich, Germany

unspecified

Male / Female vocals work nice! I really like the male and female vocal mix. I have always really liked that dynamic in music. Reminds somewhat of the Vaselines for some reason. Catchy and easy listening. I like. - damn_the_youth from Unspecified

SOUTH WALES,UNITED KINGDOM

hi I really really liked this, excellent mix of voices both singers excellent, lovely melody, and great musicianship especially the guitar. - stevethomas1066 from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, United Kingdom

UNITED KINGDOM

song1 review sounded like a bell chime at the start. nice rainwashed minor descending chords. accordion makes me think it's european. male and female voices work well though sounded a bit off key somewhere around 1.00. hey, we all do it. is it an accordion or harmonica? can't ell. sounds cool though. meaty guitar a nice addition towards the end along with piano - jondee from United Kingdom

REVIEWERS PICKS AWARDS "STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN"

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Track of the Day on 11Nov2007 in WORLD MUSIC

Boca Raton,Florida

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Who said we need vocals Sounded like CCR after the first time the violin stops and the band kicks in. Also it reminded me of the band America. The song flows really good and the little things put in like the piano notes here and there fill the whole musical atmosphere. The violin makes you listen to the whole song. The guitar solo at the end was amazing. - draggio Boca Raton, Florida

kAVALA,Greece

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Nice playing,I like your sound-and the 'echo' effect on the violin!I like the 'third' guitar,nice tunes... - movastro from Kavala, Greece

STOCKHOLM,SWEDEN

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Ventures I like this melancholic song! Makes me think of something by the Ventures, the Shadows or other bands in the 50's and early 60's. Violin is beautifully played. I love the glissandos! Good choise of lead instrument (a clean reverb guitar would have made it sound just like a Hank Marvin rip off). Guitar solo in the end is great! Distortion a little too heavy metal to my taste, but hey! It rocks! STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN There's lots of instruments and many things happening in the rythm section. That's cool, gives you something new to listen to the second time! - aztor from Sweden

Baskerville,Virginia

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Nice simple start, simple and minimal. It breaks into rhythm with violin carrying the melody. The rhythm section does a good job and is well balanced with the rest of the instruments. The guitars sit nicely behind until breaking through after 4 minutes in a soring energetic solo which takes it to the end and fades out. The mix and production good, too. All in all, my favorite part of the song was the starting theme before the heavy rhythm starts. They seem like two different songs. This sound is jamming. - cathexix from Baskerville, Virginia

ATLANTA,GEORGIA

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Soulful The intro Violin is very soulful. The starting of all the instruments together is a bit sudden but keeps with the mood of the song. An interesting piece. - clustersofgrey from Atlanta, Georgia

MILWAUKEE,WISCONSIN

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Engaging instrumentals Great guitar in the beginning. The strings were amazing. It reminded me of music that once played in my dream. I like the break into the live main part. It is a natural transition. Sound is unique and gets me feeling good. - MelissaCzarnik from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

BORGA,UUISMAA,FINLAND

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Lovely messy approach This one surprised me! I didn´t know what to expect AT ALL at the start, but I love the somewhat messy approach you got into then, sounds like you´re having a lot of fun as you play, and sound like you´re just a gang of very creative and nice people doing your thing. I somewhat get a picture of a bunch of really cool mothers and fathers in their mid 30´s, kick me if I´m wrong! It´s a good production, I like that it doesn´t sound too clean so to say, it´s original and really catchy music. Loveya! - UUK390 from Borgå, Uusimaa, Finland

VIENNA,AUSTRIA

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN violin electric ...this track is a fusion of rock out of the seventies and an electrified folk solo violin... it is an interesting variation of styles and I like this sounding result...mostly the sound of the violin. - stromboli1 from Vienna, Austria

UNITED KINGDOM

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Mellow strings Lovely strings over the guitar, very soothing in the intro before moving into a nice driving sequence that has airs of Zepellin. Well performed throughout. - theICARUS from Uk, United Kingdom

NEUOETTING,GERMANY

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Nice melody ideas, skillful! Good performance Cello sounds really good!The melody is quite cool, later on the production really ROCKS, well done! Guitars sound good! I like especially your melodic ideas with the violin, and the cello before (I hope I heard those instruments right). It´s a powerful song with also a nice guitar solo later on, maybe not the best harmonic knowledge u have about the guitar solo there, but also good sound and nice playing. WELL DONE! - MSTR from Neuoetting, Germany

MOITA,PORTUGAL

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN the violin rules!!!:) good world music track!its a very good instruments fusion!!!violin???!!very good!i like!the performance of the song its very good!but the violin is great!good work!Peace! - NunoChaparro from Moita, Portugal

LOWER HIGH-LANDS,SCOTLAND,UNITED KINGDOM

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN cool nice mix guys really like it, just work me up from a day dream, love the way it weaves in and out with the instruments.....seems to me like it;s like it should be! thanks! - acousticpeace from Lower High-Lands, Scotland, United Kingdom

BENIN,EDO,NIGERIA

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN GOOD SOUND HERE I WILL COMMENT ON PERFORMANCE WHICH BAND ONLY ASK FOR, I CAN'T DO THAT UNTIL I LET THE GUY ON THE PIANO, GUITARS AND TRUMPET KNOW THAT THEY'VE GOT GREAT TALENT.... YOUR PERFORMANCE IS AWESOME, I LIKE IT... AT 1:09 I LIKE THE SAXOPHONE DAT WAS PLAYED ON THE SOUND (LIKE KENNY G) COOL.... - boyblacrecords from Benin, Edo, Nigeria

LOS ANGELES,CALIFORNIA

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Folk Very folky, not necesarely my music but I really like the Violin! Reminds me of One more Cup of Coffee by Bob Dylon. - Moloco from Los Angeles, California

LIER,BELGIUM

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Melancholical start, after that gipsy mood. The violin sounds very melancholical in the intro. It's a very good sound. In the intro I wonder as well what the snare-instrument is in my right ear. At 0:40 the real song starts. Drums, guitars and the violin gets the leading part, and is doing it excellent. There is a kind of Gipsy feeling in the way of playing of the violin. At 4:20 about a lead electric guitar takes it over. Still I liked the melancholical feeling of the intro the most. After that it's totally different. There the violin is fantastic. Yes, I like this! - AlexanderPort from Lier, Belgium

GLASGOW,SCOTLAND,UK

STAGELIGHT SONATA FOR VIOLIN Strong Stuff Absolutely brilliant fiddling. Strong, strident sound. The highlight of this tune. Starts of classical sounding, develops into 1960's mersey/ psychedelic sound fusion, then goes off into what sounds almost Gypsy... and does so pretty seemlessly. Very impressive - Captain_Melted from Glasgow, Scotland

HACIENDA HEIGHTS,CALIFORNIA

BAD DAY IN SCHOOL Child Abuse This song should be removed from the site due to the fact that it has child abuse in it, and it is presented in a way that is supposed to be funny. There is nothing funny about child abuse and all of us should do everything we can to fight against it. This review, and the negative response it may recieve is inconsequencial to me. As for performance: It was good. As for vocal: there wasn't any vocal he was talking. The lyric was good. - henrymonzello from Hacienda Heights, California

STAFFANSTORP,SWEDEN

BAD DAY IN SCHOOL review great sound,,real root feeling..liked the speaking vocals..different and original..but miss that the music is toned down in the background. - rolb from Staffanstorp, Sweden

UNSPECIFIED

BAD DAY IN SCHOOL Play School Blues Seriously, this tune is a riot. Blues with kids on vocals. You almost wonder how someone that young can have the Blues, but this is pretty well done. The band is decent and the vocals are hilarious. A very cool blues parody using youth on vocals. Some of the comments on school will bring back memories for some of us older people. - FOE_1 from Unspecified on 28Nov2007

COBOURG & BRIGHTON,ONTARIO,CANADA

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL luncheon blues Yep big powerful "Hoochie" style blue arrangement ....so you really would have a hard time "missing" with whatever you set against it. As for the song ....very clever modern day classroom setting ....think you hit all the right buttons, fears and mores. Fine musicianship and a good sense of hip poetics/politics. Words just get a little cluttered in the late middle section ....but overall a inspiring effort ....I'd like to see the video. Actually despite you own opinion, I do like the rawness and edge of the production! - HarperJohn from Cobourg & Brighton, Ontario, Canada

UNITED KINGDOM

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL The idea for the kid having a blues song is genius - jakethenohead from United Kingdom

ROCKVILLE,MARYLAND

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL mmm, ,,,, Man don't know what to say, I like it! It's original, is this your daddy's song? Theres nothin' new with the music, it's very well played but it's the vocal delivery that makes the tune. Kid, you made somebody proud with this tune and...you made me smile. Keep on keepin' on. - Sliminou from Rockville, Maryland

CARROLLTON,GEORGIA

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL cool stuff Its cool that someone as young as this cat sounds is into the blues. overall good production. the vocals are to far up in the mix and a bit corny but for the age group cool. keep up the good work man - Snowconeforpresident from Carrollton, Georgia

La Pointe,Wisconsin

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL Too Much Fun! I would be interested to hear the story behind this one! Sounds like the kids took over the control room. Maybe a father/son project? Great job! This song is refreshingly fun and on the lighter side! - the_dr from La Pointe, Wisconsin

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL School House Rock Well for a kid singer, I guess this is just killer. The school house blues, huh? Just semed perfect for one of those School House Rock cartoons. - traumadolls from Norfolk, Virginia

CHICAGO,ILLINOIS

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL nice move I'm a hoochie coochie man. vocals are a boy? just joking. It was good , maybe a movie soundtrack or something. - jkoel_tuttle from Chicago, Illinois

ORANGE PARK,FLORIDA

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL After School Special First of all - this song is wild and fun and creative. Corny at times, funny at times. I know you didn't want production comments - but the spoken vocals are so far out in front of the mix that is sounds like a theme song for a tv show for kids and pre-teens. The performance of the band is very good - and I suspect that the drums are programmed. Otherwise that is an excellent drummer. So - kudos for the creativity. It sounds like you all had a fun time recording this. Kept my attention for 2 minutes and 56 seconds for sure. Now go shop this to Nickelodeon! - blistur from Orange Park, Florida

VIENNA,AUSTRIA

BAD DAY AT SCHOOL comedie blues that`s a sassy, sexy track! I love the smokey voice of the female singer. Groove behind is great...there is some zappa comedie in here, too! the voices are much too much in front in the sound mix! - stromboli1 from Vienna, Austria

CDBABY

STAGELIGHT LOVER (SINGLE RELEASE) author: zp beautiful composition! Well written, dewy has a haunting, joplin like voice! Time/Life author: Dewy missin you, no matter what happened it's way back there and still I do love you Rene, been friends too long to let unfair, unhappy, undone things, unwhatever block this at least for me...Life has been very hard for us both but we always keep pushing on and on ......... NO matter how you feel towards me doesn't matter in my mind & heart. I have ALWAYS wished you the best and still do. Hope your well and Jordan too. I hope he stayed w/ the drums and is doing real well. Just me stopping by, > Always,Dewy* Time/Life Author:Rene Hey Dewy,Glad to hear from you! Yes baby,we were two different people into different things but both into the blues who were thrown together at random chance to do something.All of our hard work together is probably to real and too raw for people to deal with...Most people want to be spoon fed their entertainment by the mass media like ants being masticated.They cannot handle things outside of those boundaries,they believe music is a fashion and it is not that,it is a feeling.We worked so hard together holding nothing back and there was no one standing there to say "you can't do that!" Do you remember the sessions for "Just A Matter of Time"?For sixteen days we had no food and sat on the bed going over and over the song.When people heard it they though it was a joke.They never understood the personal homor we put behind everything we did,when our only escape from our hardship was to laugh at ourselves? And you became such a very dear,dear friend of mine,so easily we could have become lovers yet always maintained a professional stance and attitude towards our work.Knowing fully that the world was out to get us and the mass media was terrified by how we never held anything back.And all we wanted to do was play and sing and make a little money for it.the promoters said " you have four minutes to make it count." To make it count for who? It never counted for us.Oh so they say and what the fuck do they know? They are not willing to take any chances.I miss you too and hold you so dearly in my heart./Rene Superb Musicianship, Superb Voice of Dewy Ellis, Superb lyrics author: Tony Stagelight Lover, best track, intro grabs your attenion straight away. Dewy Ellis has a beautiful voice. great intro, vocals, intensity of expression . author: Twin I had seen this title then I saw the info on CDBABY I bought my first single in a dozen years-on CD. Great intro the song has flavor and style-They squeezed in just about everything with a delicious intensity of expression. Dewy and Rene are a celebration! shes very real, and her emotions come right through the music. the songs are li author: wish i like how the music has emotion. the songs are like stories. musicianship is detailed and beautiful. it rocks!!! author: Geo I heard the sample on AOL, and am ordering the CD. Loved Stagelight Lover. I loved Stagelight Lover. I would like to hear more songs by her. author: Infinity I listened to the songs from your group. My favorite song was Stagelight Lover. She has a unique voice. I liked the whole CD, in general, but Stagelight Lover is the BEST!

LAST NIGHT IN TIDIOUTE Top Notch Performance Long intro of talking and laughing, music doesn't start until 1:47 When the music starts it is full of intensity and pure energy.

Jersey Review

LAST NIGHT IN TIDIOUTE ROCKIN BLUES LIVE I can't make out the intro, but I get the feeling somethin is comin. After a James Brown style intro to the audiance, the music splashes threw the speakers with a Rockin Blues Beat and doesn't stop, or loose pace.The singer is up front and great. The recording is hard to judge without knowing the details and the problems involved. Someone found it worth it to save this song and so do I. The performance is captured and the verdict is in. This is ROCKIN BLUES LIVE. This is ONE OF A KIND. Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Mood, Originality, Most Rocking Track. - ALMCKINNON Maple Shade, New Jersey

Garageband-United Kingdom

LAST NIGHT IN TIDIOUTE Baffling. Aha - a real garage recording? Not sure we need all the chat at the beginning - especially as it's entirely unintelligible, then suddenly switches to a much clearer sound at 57 seconds. That's a completely wasted minute of anyone's time. 0 points for performance. Then, in the next recorded section, there's more chat that wastes another 40 seconds. This isn't production, this is arrangement - and part of the performance, so I feel justified in hitting the band for this remarkable goof. When the song finally hits (I wonder how many people have actually listened this far, given that GB reviewers are only required to listen to the first 90 seconds!) - it's powerful and bright, and I wonder why comments on the production are explicitly not asked for - it's a very clean live recording with a good mix. The execution is spot-on for the song, although I personally did not dig the piano splat that appeared to drive the audience wild - in fact, that applause is starting to drive me absolutely mad ! Then there's another random piano moment that shoots across everything wrecking an otherwise acceptable, energetic if somewhat unoriginal bluesy number. The performance is very energetic, and the band clearly work together on the whole . - Certif1ed Here, United Kingdom

garageband

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU let the good times roll upbeat blues blue grass. i imagine this track as a black and white smokey bar room type, cigarrete, jack daniels..... a bit of the rolling stones vibe going on too.... a crazy track at times. a real raw edge guitar riff brings the band in, comfortably loose and relaxed but tight as a tight thing can get tight. no fancy sound effects just good old rock n roll. with the vocal all the way, even the howl at 2.25. great riff as the main hook. really like the guitars but even more the gob iron. if only i could play a harmonica that well. neat drums, does everything well and at the right time, not trying to run the show. spot of keyboard floating in there too. nice.... arrangement is solid. excellent performaces all round Extra Credit: Guitars, Drums, Keyboards, Beat, Mood, Originality. - Colonel_Mustard Lincoln, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU Fun in a bag Nice and upbeat and the note bends out of tune sound quirkily interesteting. I like the harmonica and the energy being presented by the singing is great. the lyrics are a little boring Im afraid, but then again this isnt a song whihc is about getting deep or philosphical. The drums work great and the bass boggie is fun and danceable. A great fun song Extra Credit: Male Vocals. - thewakingparty

GARAGEBAND UK

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU Get Your Rocks Off Proper upfront rocking tune, what we'd probably call Pub Rock in the UK. Lotsa harmonica, twelve bar style bass, early Stones type lyrics but it's the sort of stuff that instantly brings a smile to your face and that's no band thing. It's a rocker, That said, this is well done so enjoy if you like that sort of thing. Still smiling... - NicholsonBurr Tunbridge Wells, Kent, United Kingdom

garageband

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU Bluesy nice. A very bluesy and raw sound right from the start. I'll bet this is a fantastic band to see live. The guitars and drums have a very live feel, but also sound well produced. The organ adds a lot in the middle, and I like that the song breaks down. Not much to suggest on this song. It's just a nice blues song. - fadedpaprfigurs

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU bluesfest, retromania oh yeah, this is a bluesfest a la Stones style and my fav as it's very retro. Nice harmonica and old skool feel that is both engaging and warm.

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU Rock! Great fucking Stonesy guitar! Seriously awesome tones and tasty playing. Last 15 seconds or so are hilariously awesome.

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU veeery nice. ohu yeah! This song rocks. A wonderful rock/blues song with great sounds, very nice voice (dirty enough for this genre), the guitars and the harps are married perfectly.

Nice to hear someone blow the harp in a rock band who knows whats going on. Great guitar solo! Not at all what I expected to hear, but I was sold right away.

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU cool vibe the harmonica, tambourine, etc. really fill out the sound here and it's great. this riff though, and the lyrics are very done before. organ sounds great too now that i notice it. you guys have a really cool sound, great vocals. i would say consider adding harmonies to create a variance between parts and divide the song up a bit (currently it seems like one big jam), and again strive for uniqueness. cool tune guys - thebrotherwhys Chicago/Champaign, Illinois

OH,HOW I LOVE YOU Great Guitars The guitars in the intro sound brilliant. They made me wonder what wonderful new sound I was going to experience. The rest of the song comes in and I am no longer expecting anything original. It breaks into a solid blues rock track. A very pro one at that. The performances here are top notch (as well as the recording). The vocalist really screams. The arrangement is neat. The musicianship of the instrumentalists here is quite apparent. This is a gelled, mature band Completely pro, top of form for the genre. Really well done. Greats tones throughout....the sounds chosen sound great. The late 70's guitar solo at the end was a nice surprise...unexpected touch...definitely the top of the Blues Rock heap.

FOR "HIGH SOCIETY Awards! Best Guitars in Rock, week of 13Oct2008 Best Drums in Rock, week of 13Oct2008 Best Mood in Rock, week of 13Oct2008

GARAGEBAND

HIGH SOCIETY Wow!! Listen to This. Very explosive vocals. The guitar has a funky, cool beat and is brilliant, yet simple. The live recording itself makes it difficult to consistently hear the subtleties in the drums, but they actually fill in very nicely with the rest of the music. The solo is excellent. The guitarist has the opportunity to sound off after relatively simply strumming away. The band flat out knows how to perform live. With a producer this song has no limit. It could really be a great rock song. Personally I have never been a fan of live recordings of music, for anyone. I made an early decision not to listen to the entire song when it started out for this reason alone -- but I couldn't. It's a great song.

HIGH SOCIETY Tight cuts, good tune The performance was definitely good. It was effective when the band cut together and came back in. The melody was also to my liking. cool tune! Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Guitars, Beat. - PeteSanchez Dix Hills, New York

garageband

HIGH SOCIETY Great sound I really like the upbeat sound of the music. Everyone seems to be really synchronized with each other. The music is really catchy and the guitar solo has a really "soulful" feel to it. The song is well put together and I can definitely say the performance made me want to be there watching you on stage. The only thing I didn't really care too much for was the lyrics. The music is so well played that I just feel the lyrics could have had more substance. All in all I loved the song and you should definitely keep doing what you are doing. Good luck! Extra Credit: Guitars, Beat, Best Feel Good Track. - Yerosha Oxford, Alabama

garageband

HIGH SOCIETY Awesome live feel. Good work. This sounds completely live and it sounds like recorded in the late 60's/early 70's. This is a very original idea. I like the song a lot too. Reminds me of something Vietnam-era... Woodstock stuff. The performance is tight, yet raw. By the way, that bass is working hard. Love it. Good guitar solo... sort of makes me suspicious that this will be removed because it's not an original by an unsigned band... lol.

GARAGEBAND

HIGH SOCIETY Hello Live and personal. The bass is very good. Its hard to hear everything in this mix as I'm sure you know, but as far as I can tell, everything , ie, drums and such are right on. It has a nice rock/funk/blues thing going. - rmusgrave1427 Scranton, Pennsylvania

GARAGEBAND

HIGH SOCIETY Good Live Band. Sounds like a rocking live show. Searing guitar and it sounds like you have the crowd involved. Hard to hear all of the mix, but it sounds very professional. Extra Credit: Guitars. - mickeysmethod Missoula, Montana

HIGH SOCIETY Hard to review It's hard to review this song because of how bad the recording is. However, I understand you don't want production reviews so I'll do my best to review what I've heard. As far as performance, I really like the energy you put into it. It sounds like you get really into you shows. Kinda a different sound, but seems like it'd be fun to see live. I think my favorite part of this song is probably the guitar solo. It sounds like the guitarist is just absolutely insane, in a good way. He's do a lot of raw stuff in there, very cool. Overall, again, it's hard to review this song and give it a fair review because of the recording. But, the performance seemed pretty upbeat and fun so keep up the good work. - GoldenDave Paulding, Ohio

GARAGEBAND

COMING HOME TOMORROW Just like a Rollin' Stone... I mean that literally. Vocals on this song have an uncanny similarity to Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones. This is a great marriage of country and rock. These guys are a party band when they play live - I can tell! I'd like to hear the vocal a little more prominently in the mix than it is. I like the transition to falsetto on the part of the lead vocal. Good dynamic to create some interest. Great harmonies. Guitar is rockin'. Percussion is interesting in a good way. Like the sparse addition of the Honky Tonk piano. Being a fan of the rolling stones, I'd be happy to see these guys at a live music venue sometime.

COMING HOME TOMORROW A rocker This song is edgy, rockabilly style in my opinion right from the start. Almost a Van Halen feel provided by the lead vocalist. A couple of un-paired breaks where maybe there should not be in the song. Harmonica is rocking and the over-all mix is pleasant. Love the melody of the song. - shawnalynn Brentwood, California

GARAGEBAND

COMING HOME TOMORROW I'm coming back This surely cannot be country - it sounded more like a Rolling Stone performance. I can just see this singer running across the stage and doing all these funky giraations. Had a nice little piano teaser in the instrumental break. Melody slowed then picked up - exactly like the British style. Of course, you couldn't understand a word he was singing except for the hook - I'me coming home tomorrow. Right out of the Stones song. The instruments dominated the number making the lyrics even harder to pick up. He may be coming home tomorrow but where's he been? And don't bring this song home with you. - btanabe La Canada, California

garageband

COMING HOME TOMORROW Original Stuff Here! Nice rockiing intro caught my attention. This song would do well in the rock or pop genre as well. I liked the vocal effects used, as well as the jamming lead guitar. Excellent swing feel on keyboards. The song has a catchy melody, in particular the ending of each chorus with the musical staccato. Overall, this is just a fun song, for me, reminiscent of the rosk songs in the late 70's, when music was free and you could experiment with just jamming and having fun. we need more original stuff like this!

I'VE BEEN CALLING OMG, I'm getting aroused Ok, this might just already be a song, but that didn't stop Jet from making that Iggy Pop song. Oh my god this is like Wham when the vocals kick in. I am stuck on the whole 80's nature of this song, not Quiet Riot, more like i think I said Wham. Who is this? can I talk to them? what is going on.

I'VE BEEN CALLING Nice I was expecting a girl to start singing but I was suprised and the vocals fit well with the music.

I'VE BEEN CALLING Yea! The guitar is an immediate listener attention grab. The sound is great and the effects are cool. Your vocalist has a great voice and I really like how he uses it in the song. The song reminds me of some artists from the early 90s and I like that. Cool and original sound* - mcsully Henderson, Nevada

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING Reviewed by PUEBLO Man when this started I thought it might have been an unreleased INXS track, that is until the vocals came in, which were very good. well performed. This track has a nice vibe to it almost fine young cannibals. Overall the lyrics,arrangment and performance are great. - Josh_M312 Vancouver, Canada

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Nice pop piece Nice intro, I was grooving along from the start. The guitar licks compliment eachother nicely. This is definitely a nice pop song. The simple beats and bassline is just what this song needs. The keyboard, guitar, and synth licks also add to it. I like the production on the vocals with the reverb, and female doubling. Guitar solo at 2:40 is short but sweet. - freewilly Newburyport, Massachusetts

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Best tune I've reviewed in awhile Strong guitar intro. Great vocal delivery song has a cool gritty feel that overlays a real pop feel. Unique, all round excellent effort.

I'VE BEEN CALLING Strong Very classic rock and roll song. The vocals are pretty good, though a bit cliche'. The drums sound like they're being produced by a drum machine, and they may be, for all I know. Good dance tune. Extra Credit: Best Dance Track. - handmedowns Springfield, Missouri

I'VE BEEN CALLING fine young cannibals brother mark cannibal the drums were straight forward, extremely catchy arrangement. I could see this potentially on tv. I couldnt tell when the bridge, happened. So perhaps a key change would have suited it. - eskimorobot Tacoma, Washington

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Quite nice indeed! Very '80s. I like the intro, and very good production overall. Great guitar tones. The drums are pretty machine-like, but that goes well with this style. The actual drum part works well and supports the song nicely. The lead singer has a good voice, and the vocals are well performed and well recorded. Great lead guitar break - very Crowded House. The bridge is well done - the whole song is well done. Not much I can suggest in the way of improvements on this one. Super job. Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Guitars, Production, Beat, Mood. - CopperScott Waco, Texas

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Nice work Great mix already, 4 seconds in! Great lead tone on the intro. That synth part jams! Great job bringing in the palm muted guitar part in in the second half of the verse. Really gives the song momentum. This song is just 80's as hell. I dig it! Good job with the subtle synth layering. Good use of effects in the pre-chorus. Great job having melodic contrast between sections. The "punchy" melodic feel in the chorus really seperates it from the more "wordy, flowing" verse. Nice production in the bridge. Great breakdown at 3:03! - amadeus_x Lincoln, Nebraska

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Nice Good clean sound. Solid performance altough nothing too intricate. Guitar playing varied and interesting. Varied for the choice of notes and also for sounds. The riffs hook me. Good short melodic solo at 2:40 with a pleasant sound change. Agreable voice with hooking melody; could be a little bit more energic (not agressive) to fit with the power guitar chords specialy in the refrain. We can find example of this energy that I mean at about 1:50. About the drums, they are effective but I'm really wandering if it's a loop or real player. I would like more variety and fills. Not too much keyboards, but their contribution to the track enhance it at the good moments. Extra Credit: Production, Melody. - quaternr Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING Nice 80's sounding pop/rock... Overall its good song, with very good production. It takes a little bit too long to get to the chorus, and the verse is a little lacking in interesting melodic content. That being said, I really enjoyed the chorus and bridge. It's very "poppy", but thats a good thing in my book. Its got a nice 80's pop sound, but it doesnt sound at all like the other "80's influenced" pop/rock that is currently out there. Good job. Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Guitars, Production, Originality, Grooviest Rhythm. - skoober Elmira, New York

lONDON,ENGLAND,UK

I'VE BEEN CALLING Seal & The Mechanics Very cool opening and it's about the right length. The singer reminds me a bit of Seal and is hitting the right notes. He is a bit too low in the mix during the verse. I enjoyed his vocal inflections and phrasing in the verses. The song is very late 80's early 90's in sound and feel. The drums need to go somewhere. The same sound and pattern gets a touch irritating for a song that really wants to cut loose and feels like it is being restrained. I enjoyed the track and will give it another listen. It has a terrific future if you allow its true potential energy to flow. Get a kick A rock drummer to fire it up. You might want to increase the tempo a couple of clicks. The pre-chorus reminds me of Mike & The Mechanics. The bridge was fine. It didn't generate sufficient excitement going back into the verse. You're pretty darn close. I would recommend you take this track to a good producer! Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Melody. - caperad London, England, United Kingdom

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING Tight, crunchy If Chicago had had any balls at all, it might have sounded something like this. Smooth, soulful vocals but with some great crunchy pop guitars backing it up. Not a big fan of the techno-drums, though. Love the brief instrumental break, too. Leads straight into the bridge, then a cool stop. Yes! Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Guitars, Production. - kgramone Louisville, Kentucky

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING Cool tune, POP ROCK lives! Real nice fade-in intro. Strong drum beat and a simple, melodic, memorable lead guitar lick. The guitar part at times reminds me of something Badfinger might have done.Vocals are very good especially when he hits the falsetto at the end of a line. The harmony vocals give the extra boost in the hook. I'm not real crazy about the synth part or the sort of...Linn drum sounding thing. I really like the guitar solo going into the bridge. Also that ooh,ooh thing is memorable. The rhythm is pretty straight forward (good thing). The cut-off chord structure..standard, but effective. Bop-bop bop, bop bop, bop...works every time! Extra Credit: Guitars, Melody, Grooviest Rhythm. - gritchie Wimberley, Texas

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Full of surprises I have to tell you, I wasn't sure about this track during the first verse. It seemed to drag along a little bit. You hit it in the chorus. It is such a contrast. The chorus and bridge just plain rock. Sort of remind me of prince. Verse reminds me of seal. I know its hard to just change a major part of the song, but I think it would help drastically to come up with something a little more melodic and upbeat for the verse. Thats my only complaint with the track. Production is great - I love the synths. Drums sound good - clean and crisp. Very well done overall. Thanks for sharing Extra Credit: Male Vocals, Keyboards, Programming, Production, Originality. - vaso Boyne City, Michigan

RUSTY J REVIEW

I'VE BEEN CALLING love the guitar! the guitar sounds soo good. i love it the the vocals were actually pretty strong. dude has a good voice - i suggest the vocalist jumping on some r&b tracks. sounds like his voice has a little too much soul for this poppy guitar music sound really reminds me of prince - RustyJ Oswego, New York

garageband

I'VE BEEN CALLING Very good pop song! The guitar riff a the beginning is cool and reminds me 80's kind of riff. Your lead singer has a good voice and he puts the right feeling in the song. Your use of back vocals is pretty intersting. I like your chorus, 'cause it's catchy and easy to remember. The bridge is cool and I like the effects that you use in it. However, it stops too fast. You may add a couple of bars to it to give more direction to the song. Other than that, you've done a very good job and I'm pretty sure that I'll hear this song on the radio one day.

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING professional sounding AOR pop song Really cool intro with super clear drums and rhythm guitars .. I thought it was a bit like Orson. But then the vocals came in - it's adult orientated fm rock really. With "ooh-ooh baby" lyrics and slightly 80's pop C & W /Eagles guitar influences. Not my cup of tea really, but it is catchy, the vocal performance is very professional as is the every element of the track. Extra Credit: Production. - co_ordination Birmingham, United Kingdom

GARAGEBAND

I'VE BEEN CALLING Pure Power Pop All in all this song is THE definition of Power Pop. Great sounds, catchy hooks, fun melody. This sounds little like early Todd Rundgren, when he was still writing pop songs. There are plenty of 60s and 70s infulences at work here (Todd R., Beatles, Byrds, Big Star, Sweet, etc). Production wise the guitars and keys really reflect the same 60s/70s era. Vocally things get a little buried in the mix sometimes, but nothing too terrible. The only little thing I didn't like is the drum line. I feel it gets repetitious and I got a little bored by it. The song is really well crafted, the verse, chorus and bridge are all well defined and lead naturally into one another. But I feel you could punch them up with better percussion lines that suited each section. On the whole this is a great tune. - SadBanjo Cincinnati, Ohio

REVIEWS OF CRAWDADDY COUNTY 911

Southern local area bands

Rene Labre Group Rene Labre: Lead Vocals, All Guitars, Piano, Organ and Harmonica Marvin Brown: Drums, Vocals and Percussion Chip Collins: Bass, synthesizers and vocals Rene Labre is a southern roots project from South Florida that in my opinion defines the essence of what local music should be. While it may be questionable whether or not they would be well received on the national front, the passion and desire are what sets the band apart from the typical local music pack. Delivering up a dish of southern rock and blues, you can't help but hear the gritty Dixie delivery and feel by not only from the vocal delivery that's shared among the bands members, but just as much so musically and without the need for slide guitar to prove its point. With a handful of CD's in distribution, the music from this 3 piece project covers a wide range of styles from straightforward blues and Gospel to funky Allman Brother type riffs and instrumentals. The vocal-less performance of Crawdaddy County 911 additionally displays the bands capabilities with the inclusion of xylophone effects that brings the 70's feel into complete fruition. Rene Labre leads the pack with his multi instrumental ability and is very well rounded out by Marvin Brown and Chip Collins who provide ample background instrumentation and vocal assistance to their leader to create a total Southern feel that is unmistakably sound. This compilation of seasoned musicians who were in their prime while most of us were not even a gleam in our parents eyes proves that a variety of different influences can package a powerful punch between the brows. With such a strong musicianship at the helm, there's almost no way to avoid the toe tapping ferocity of Rene Labre which is spookily reminiscent of SLABMusic's own Jane Ivy. So visit their website at http://ats.renelabre.com/ and get a taste of the South uniquely delivered in a neat and tidy performance. Chris Horton © 2004 SLABMusic.com All rights reserved.

Outtake Review "The Easy Ride"intro Then when the vocals come in it reminds me of those 70's bands that came in the wake of ABBA. I love the harmonica, it gives the whole song a distinctive character. It is such a nice touch. This is like the musical equivilent of being in a costume shop, preparing for a fancydress party. So many colours and textures. Incongruity abounds. I think this must be a band because,despite this musical "flitting about" there is something that anchors the sound, keeps it rooted and coherent. The players are all coming from the same place, going in the same direction. There is much to critcise technically I suppose. Sometimes the voice is a little off in places, the recording is not top notch clear and there are areas that could be polished up. But these are elements. And magic is not about the elements. Magic is about the whole experience,the general impression., the overall appreciation. This sounds like a group of Happy, fun living wizards Excellent stuff. - gilderfish N'pton, United Kingdom

CRAWDADDY COUNTY 911 Swampy Great performance all around. The band is certainly tight. I the musical sigh of relief that came in around 2:30 only to get punched in the gut again about 30 seconds later. The break was well executed. There was a teaser for a jam during the break but it sounded as if the band resisted the temptation. Bravo. The punch came back in right on time. Overall I am very impressed with the instrumentation.

I really like the b3. I'm definitely a sucker for it. the acoustic breakdown part starting around the 0:58 mark is pretty inspired, hadn't heard something like that in a while. It sounds like these might be older dudes making this, but its still good. Yeah, that spoken word part is straight outta brooklyn in the late 50s early 60s too. its definitely rock and would definitely make people shake it. - SnackWheat Richmond, Virginia

TEEN AMERICA THEME teen america This song starts with an awesome grab you drum riff and pulls you directly into a rolling stones sound that sounds like it might fall apart in any second... but holds together in a strong and almost reckless rock 'n roll way! I like the guitar work and bass.... and that groovy organ just slams in the background. At times it's like the who too... and this song is just... it's just... it's really just.... AWESOME! What is that middle part with the straight vocals..... Hilariously AWESOME with a good point to... learning to listen and reading are always good steps to being able to increase your perception. Teen America... listen... it's good! - groovyalien Area 51, Nevada

TEEN AMERICA THEME Oh, how I love it....amazing..... Good start, like the energetic drum kickoff. Yeah, then the music kicks in, sounds like the Who or old Jefferson Airplane. Like it a lot, I'm a sucker for the Hammond B3. Good guitar interplay, well done. Great for a movie soundtrack...I'll make a note to myself to put it into my playlist, and I have a feeling others will too. I like the spoken dialogue in the middle. Its got a great message, spacey guitars. I'm glad I found this, like another artist I caught here, and I said to him as well, you get the same thrill hearing this as you do riding in a kickass antique car...in this case, like an old Vette or a Barracuda. They encapsulated and captured that mid 60s San Francisco sound. I could see an old commercial with this, one of those campy psychedelic commercials for Kodak with the swirly yellow and brown rainbows going in the background. This would have played well at Woodstock '69 at 6am, when all the hippies were getting fired up for another day of musical excess. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. I'm glad these band members found each other, and shared this vision.

TEEN AMERICA THEME Wow It sounds great! The sounds aren't necessarily original, in fact it felt very much like a remake of some doors song. Even still, it's got great energy, nice instrumentation, sweet vocals, and a hell of a drum intro and outtro! - fadedpaprfigurs

TEA IN AMERICA????? the mad Who progess... Mad awesome drumming starts this one off. Rockin. Then everything else kicks in and it becomes a sort of 70s Who style rock out. A cool organ humms over the top, and a Daltry-like 'hey!' intro starts the singer off. It reminds me of 'Bargain.' and we've even got Townsend-like harmonies. I get lost a bit at the first 'tea in America' lyric line and then there is a totally unexpexccted acoustic guitar solo.The vocal samples are great and I can see whast you are doing. This really is the Who go prog rock with many many mad solos and instru - 'mental' changes. Quite intriguiing and some top thinking going on. I don't knwo if it fits 'indie' rock, but it definitely is prog ROCK. Extra Credit: Drums, Originality. - BSF London, England, United Kingdom

TEEN AMERICA THEME Nice Exciting Intro Song is huge right off the bat. The whole band comes in and it has a sort of Ray Davies meets Elvis Costello feel to it. The drums are fabulous in this track. The mix is great overall. I really love the organ solo...who does that anymore?! Awesome! This Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra band part(bridge)really showcases the musicianship here.Such a great jam...Extra Credit: Drums, Keyboards. - Constabulary Seattle, Washington

TEEN AMERICA THEME Hey Surf sounding drum into was kind of cool. Vocals remind me of The Stones in parts. Like the guitars. The Hammond b-3 organ suits the tune though, maybe it was just a little loud. Good song. - atthecurveintheroad London, Ontario, Canada

MELBOURNE,AUSTRALIA

TEEN AMERICA THEME niice Cool organ sound, really grabbed me when the song started. Lots of different stuff going on, almost verging on prog-ish at times. Singer has character, as does the guitarist. I think I need to hear this a couple more times to really grasp all that's happening, but I've enjoyed the first listen, bags of energy. great work guys!
