Boom, dropped into a classic rock track with a heaped spoonful of quality. The 1st thing that grabs you is the quality of the recording. All the care has been taken of ever instrument and their sonic value. Many layers of awesome have been layered to make this song sound like a proper classic rock track. Multi vocals over sweet guitar tracks with rolling drums. Iron Maiden flavour with a hint of Marilion and you've got it all. Ding Dong sir !

Olay tells us an engaging story about live and the development of events beyond personal control, regarded as determined by a rough power. The songtext comes from the heart and touches the soul, but the whole composition is more various. There are virtuos played acoustic guitars which making the introducing in this wonderful arrangement. They also carrying the whole recording with nice tunes. You will hear brilliant strings in the backround making this composition complete. This is a extra factor what brings really feeling into the song. The refrain is clear and makes the meaning of the song engaging for me. This recording is definitely professional and very creative, influenced by folk and pop perfect arranged. I can feel the meaning of this wondeful ballad regardless of the language (the lyrics are added in English translation) and I´m sure, you will like to add it. Let others know your recommendation.

But it also reflects today's youthful exuberance. When you've got barnstorming beats blended with street-level hooks - the first three words of the hook alone let you know what it's all about within the streets of where she's from - you know you're listening to a raw talent. It sounds like everything currently getting trashed by the self-proclaimed "gatekeepers" of hip hop: hustler, lashings of gangsterism, repetitive hook, simplistic flow patterns, repetitive, not "trapped in the 90s" etc. But this is for the new fans of the game. The three main strengths: rock solid instrumentals; infuriatingly catchy hook; and acceptable rhymes. For my money, Ladii Tii could possibly get a little regular rotation in the deck as I whip corners. This is song that will fit right in the pocket and work well in today's market. The beat is right in the cut with what the majority of the consumers are buying and the lyrical content is also what today's youth appears to want to hear. The ladies should dig the flow, the fellas should dig the content, and the DJ's should have no problem mixing it into the next song. Give it a good listen and see for yourself!

more This song starts with a bouncy - happy feeling; that makes you want get up and move with the music... very nice indeed! It has a classic pop flavor with a sassy guitar backing up the song as it moves along. The drum/bass/rhythm guitar mix is right in where needs to be - again nice to the ears. The lead vocals are warm and easy to listen to, and the chorus is joyful and easy to join in with as it goes over and over with the words "You're the reason"... Very catchy - a great hook, and not a disappointment when it arrives.
The dynamics of this song, with the crescendo, and then coming back down for the vocals to become more prominent , make the verses/lyrics that much more fun to listen to. As the song flows along it leads you into the refrain "I need you", with background voices taking the song up and up! As the song comes back down, the lead voice takes us home with the final verse leading to a grand chorus ... No real surprises here, but this arrangement still works well and is ear candy for sure.
The only thing I would suggest is a little more cutting lead guitar somewhere in the song at the end of a verse or chorus as a short interlude leading to the next part - that would have made the song a little more edgy. The vocals on the "I need you" parts were a little on the soft side, they should come up and be more powerful! Perhaps a little organ sound as the song fades out or some guitar licks trailing off would have been the finishing touches on this wonderful song. That being said, this is a good song, and fun to listen to from beginning to end.
Thanks for sharing such a well crafted song with all of us. I love your voice and your song!

This is the kinda stuff I like to listen to when I just want kick back and chill with cold drink. Very Cool. Loved all the sax work! Thanks for sharing and Best of Luck!!

This song has that ability to transcend geography to person. I had the same feeling when visiting the Austrian Alps and playing songs at Hotel Solaria and other places using borrowed guitars. The ties that bind are the songs that relate those feelings of belonging and somehow the mountains bring out those thoughts strong enough to write about. It is genuine and honest in lyric and tempo with dobro and brushes makes me smell the cool crisp freshness that is mountain country.

more This song is superb classic ska beat, clean recording, vocal performance. This song could easily go into film. It is reminiscent of early Wailer's ska, and can even work in place of Special's tracks. Sounds great loud. There are no complaints here and this band has produced some of the most professional tracks in Reggae I have heard on this website. There is serious experience behind these productions. Authentic roots reggae from Jamaica.
