As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX

I give this song a five star but I have to deduct .5 for the quality of the recording, which is really the only issue I have with this tune. Love you voice and the vocal melodies. all the instrumentation are well written and performed. It sounds like you guys know how to right a good song! MAKE MORE... --- now, on to these mixing issue I have... Not sure if you recorded and mixed this yourself or not, NO OFFENSE INTENDED. If I can make a suggestion would be to have your mixer/engineer learn a bit more about how to properly use a equalizer. The vocals have a bit too much 8-10k that screams when you hit the Dear God on the chorus. There are some wonderful videos on youtube that can help get a better grasp to even out the mixes. --- Also the volume levels throughout the song jump up and down. Leveling a Track is something else I recommend learning to do well also. even out volume through the whole track section by section. Sometimes you even need to copy, say, a guitar part or something and paste that section to a separate track to give that part/lower section a little volume boost to even out that part of the tune. Hope this can help. Youtube has a boatload of great mixing and recording videos that can help you learn whatever you need to learn. Cheers to you guy! Break a Leg! Boomer

I consider this music as a psicodelic trip a journey in diferent directions. This track has a very experimental univers and has it´s own caracter. It remains me also of the jazz rock band Weather report, gong and Mahavishnu Orcestra from the period 1970 - 1985. That gender with those fusion bands I think they have been a great big influence for DR Fred Cole who is continuing with this fusion jazz tradition and blended it with electronic music. I really like this track. It give me a of pictures in my head

Chris Ledoux was a true artist and this tune represents him will. I"m a big fan and I really like this lyric and the hard guitar approach. Nice mix and arrangement and the drums have a lot of energy. The guitar solo and musical accents are all very, very good. Well done all the way around. I wish you much success with this great version of a classic tune. Well done and keep rocking that country!
