Heartfelt but raggedDane Mando Osborne's recording of "We Shall See the King" is a simple, heartfelt expression of childlike faith that we will see the King someday. It is sung with sincerity and authenticity, and the melody is pleasant. From the standpoint of execution, however, it is pretty ragged. There are only two instruments. One is an electric bass (or is it a harp being played in the low end of its range?), and the other is either a guitar or a baritone ukelele, or some other instrument I can't quite put my finger on. In any case, the tempo is a little uneven throughout. It is first noticeable on the lead instrument in the intro, and then later it is noticeable in the bass. I'm not saying you should use a click track or a metronome, but whatever the tempo is, it should be the same for all instruments. About halfway thru, both the bass and the lead instrument skip a beat, and I'm not sure whether this is intentional or not. The song is sung with real feeling and authenticity, but the pitches are often a little bit off, especially when he sings "Glo - o - ry." The ending is innovative and unexpected, which is a good thing. Bottom line, I hope he keeps praising the Lord from the bottom of his heart, and that his precision improves.
I'm feeling thisDane I like this! a good drum beat and this is fire!! I love the melody and the fact it's very catchy. The worship on this song will be great. Keep making great music Dane I think you have a great sound.
We Shall See the King ReviewHi there Dane. You have some great bones to work with here brother. That reggae feel is very much welcome. The guitar and the bass could be a bit tighter with each other. You might want to choose a bit of a different musical transition from the verse to the chorus, but that may just be my particular style. It sounds like you might be going back to repeat the verse again. Some of the notes you have chosen to sing during the verses do not line up with the notes you have played on your instruments. This tended to cause confusion within me, regarding the direction of the next series of note. I can sense the passion, and your love for the Lord, in your voice, but you might want to find someone who can handle the requirements of this song. This song requires a stronger singer. This song was obviously born out of a heart that dearly desires to see Jesus, and soon. Keep up the great work brother. I anticipate hearing more form you in the future; before the return of our Lord. LOL Many blessings on your musical journey. Trev. :)
We Shall See The king ReviewBeautiful Promising song, very heartfelt and passionate vibes. I like the lyrical structure and the touch of reggae and the gospel. How lovely and inviting to worship his AWESOMENESS and Glory. I wish you much success and look forward to hearing more of your passionate music. God Bless You
In MY OpinionGreetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, I really feel the guitar work needs a little more work to smooth out the chop in the timing. Enjoy the natural sound of the guitar. Vocals are clear natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny
Review for this songNice reggae song. This song takes me to the islands of Jamaica or Bahamas in the breeze at the beach. Good lyrics and very catcy. The melody is beautiful, however there are off-time pauses in some parts of the songs and the notes from the instruments are a little off key. Fine tune the instrumental notes for playing in the correct key and balance the base. Still I enjoyed the song. I wish you much success.
diferrentnever heard gospel in jamaica style but it does have a catch i think if you add the more sound of steel drums and percussion it will bring more brightness to the song and i think it will attract more of the audience you are looking for but over all what you are speaking about i get it and it makes since for that i loved it
Nice song . . . lyrics & music.The song is nice when it comes to the lyrics and the music. But personally I think it needs a different arrangement. A little tidying up of the vocals and BAM . . . you will a nice consistent song that is easier to follow.
