ReviewBeautiful song. I really haven't anything else I can add as far as first impression. The guitar work is very melodic, the vocals are solid and pleasing. The lyrics are heartfelt, delivery is solid. The vocals are mixed out front so the words are not buried underneath the instruments. Nice tasty solo, again melodic and very appropriate in the song's context, the message is all about love and the power of the love. A great song, I love it.
Love the acoustic guitar sound of the song.I really enjoyed the acoustic guitar at the intro and some beautiful pad leads which felt very Allman Brotheresque that set the song up for its sweet nature. I find it helpful to not try to rhyme so deliberately and with the same meter but rather rhyme with the same syllable and vary up the meter to keep it interesting. Do you ever sing in Portuguese? It's hard to keep the lyrics less concrete if not in your native language. I loved the feel and the hook.
Brasil reviewThe song is easy listening and this kinda song I prefer to listen when I am at bar hanging out with my friends or the time when I am having drinks partying with group of friends. Though the length of the song is not so long, the music composition together with synchronization of melody with the music is very touchable. At the same time the vocal is also perfect to the music. Overall there is no comment in this song. Best of luck. Cheers!!
Cool song!Good catchy tune, really like the way it flows, keeps you interested, thumbs up! Keep up the good work, it's always good to hear songs that make you feel go after listening, never give up, keep rockin!
OCEAN BLUENICE FLAMENCO SOUNDING GUITAR INTRODUCTION THIS IS A BRIGHT HAPPY TUNE WITH A POSITIVE BEAT TO IT THERE IS A GOOD POP SOUNDING VIBE TO THIS SONG WHICH ALSO HAS SOME DECENT GUITAR SHREDDING FOR A SOLO THERE IS CERATINLY MORE THAN ENOUGH PASSION HERE WITH THE VOCAL DELIVERY AND TEAMING UP WITH WHAT SOUNDS LIKE FEMALE HARMONIES IN THE CHORUS GOOD PRODUCTION LENGTH IS GREAT AS A SINGLE WORTH A FEW LISTENS GOOD EFFORT
Deep Blue EmotionA very friendly song, great harmonies and easy to understand lyrics, which is always the best style, especially for a song like this. A particular style of longing, as well which open the door to a passionate feel which lifts the song and compliments the guitar solo in a very nice way. The drums could have been stronger, but I don't find them weak by any means. Good song
Ocean MotionWhat a nice surprise to hear this song start out so strong with the guitar and possibly mandolin? The vocals are not strong, but blend beautifully with the dynamic of the melody in this song. Kind of like an Eric Clapton vocal. The production has the vocals sounding like they were overlayed in the music versus blended with the instrumentation. Could be from how it was mixed in post-production. Nice effort.
The low Down! Ocean Blue by Paul MandacaLike the overall sound, Nice quality to the recording, My only critique of this song is the lyrics, Simplify the lyrics. I feel like the writer is trying to give too much info,.. trying to explain everything, Don't over complicate the message. Simplify the lyrics. Voice is good, Music is good.
Nice relaxing sounds and harmonies straight from the start...Nice relaxing sounds and harmonies straight from the start. Really nice movement when drums and rhythm instruments follow the flow. Good song writing and performance as well as recording, mixing and mastering. I only found it's a little thin at the bottom. But all instruments sound very pure, clear and natural. That's what I usually prefer in sound recording. This is well done production and a good song!
Paul Mandaca - Ocean BluePaul Mandac hails from São Paulo Brazil. Ocean Blue is a well constructed acoustic rock soundscape featuring some tasty acoustic licks. The track is a happy musing on the beauty and importance of the ocean sung in English although I think it would have been more effective sung in Paul's native Portugese. I am writing this review in San Diego with the sun streaming in the blinds and a couple of parrots screeching outside my window. Pauls track suits the mood and the environment perfectly. Coming in at a compact three miners and twenty six seconds Ocean Blue is well worth a listen. Check out Pauls music and bring a little sunshine into your day. His sounds are an audio version of a fellow Brazilian - Romero Britto painting !
Nice Pop Song!I like the guitar, especially the solo — very nice. Good vocals too and perfect harmonies in the backings. But the lyrics are a little bit simple, why don’t you sing in Portuguese? I am sure, this sond would sound great in Portuguese! Anyway nice work ????
