This ballad reminds you, what's going on ...A song with important message. The lyrics from the feather of J.M. 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.
with headphonesI like to listen to this song with headphones. The tones of the guitar are different... You will probably realize that soon. You will notice that it's extreme beauty of a delicate music. That's by "with headphones"
original and good.A sharp acoustic guitar starts, announcing a folk-rock feel to come soon. The bridge (or is it a chorus) comes along nicely, and then well-chosen strings appear, followed by a surge in the singing : i love the mix of the guitar(s) and the strings that follow, creating a weave of 'new' sound. The song is too short to be boring (might be a little longer, actually) and it's a good one : the only thing i resent is the voice -it sounds like any spanish/south american rock act singing, I would appreciate a newer voice. But it's a good track anyway.
buena cancionHola. Qué tal. Buena cancion. Porque mi castellano no es bueno, voy a continuar en inglés. Nice song. I couldn't understand the lyrics too well, but it's musically well recorded. I definitely like the guitars. What I did understand was "agradecer" which is a very positive and joyful word, and as your song is about Manhattan I understand that you proclaim a positive thing. What you should try more, mr Olay, is form a composition with a vast theme ( perpetuum mobile; that's Latin...) and... shape it into a form that aligns with the traditional rules of singer-songwriting. Check: Rikky Rooksby, The songwriters sourcebook, songstructures. You DO have a lot of talent, don't understand me wrong, and your song bursts with positive energy. Curious for more of yours.

ManhattanThe poetic truth of a screwed up world. This is a beautiful, rythmic song that reminds me of folk music in the bars of Europe. The lyrics are clever, interesting and thoughtful with plenty of attitude. The recording captures a great performance and is only lifted by the accompaniment. The strings clyde and pick over a strong guitar back bone and give the listener the cherry on the cake. I like cake and this is a doozy ! Peter T. Newton
