An excellent Folk-Rock song !!A VERY cool and easy to listen to ballad! Despite the classic American rock style opening, this is basically a folk-rock ballad spiced up with all the right touches of classic rock, very well arranged, recorded and produced. The lead vocal is definitely following in the footsteps of classic Brit and Irish ballad singers , and does so pleasantly without sounding too derivative. So all in all this a well written, well played and produced song lead by a capable and pleasant to listen to lead singer. I loved it!
Sonic Silk!The vocalist is spot on for this tune, her vocals set perfectly into the mix. The instrumentation is seriously nothing less than professionally done. The arrangement is engaging and never lets you dip in interest. Sectional contrast is smooth and flowing from verses to choruses. Well done people! Thank you for the listen, Mitch Siegal
I can't believe they're not Brits!As soon as this song started playing, I thought: "Oh, yeah, British modern alternative... Nice" and I started thinking about mentioning bands such as razorlight... Then the first verse came in with a sweetness that made me think of some of there classy English pop there is around, that carefully blends good guitars with a very accessible melodic sensibility... So I thought: "yup, this is worth a review!" So I clicked on the link... And the band is from Texas! No, I know, that shouldn't make any difference and I'm just layering my own misconceived stereotypes onto others... But it was a surprise – and I don't know why it should have been. But this is a wonderfully crafted song. There is logic, there are surprises, there are corners to go round and avenues to view. It's a real treat... And that's just the instrumentation. Add to that the imagery of the lyrics that combine perfectly with the sweetness of the vocal and you have something of a mini classic here. Love it! I know you will too!
Sky's wide openReally nice intro with beautiful tones from the keys. Love the sprinkling of the different instruments throughout the mix everything is as professionally mixed and arranged as anything out there. The only thing I noticed that was a little out of sync were the vocals in the beginning. It sounded like some of the harmonics were bleeding into the start or keys or vise versa and muddied the mix a little bit. Her register and the keys just feed off of each other a little to much for a bar or two. I doubt if most would ever notice
Lucy In The Sky With DesiThis Rock Classical Pop piece is a work of magic! The introduction with the drum solo is a real awakening! I don't know who Lucy and Desi are, but I know they inspire amazing messages in music! Whatever the inspiration for this piece it really is wonderfully composed. I love this new voice. The lyrics are like a ballad and a love song together. Once again a top notch instrumental and the song writing is Sensational! I thought it could not improve but it just kept getting better with the guitar, bells and then more keyboard melodies. Very ambitious in it's scope and a real treat.
Very Good!What astounds me with this song, are the nice harmony surprises that keep showing up when you least expect it!... She has a nice young voice that fits perfectly with the tune. In overall, I think it's a great song!
Positive Vibes from The Antique HarmoniumsWell , an Excellent Quality recording . The decision on which studio to choose , is always fraught with worry . You choose well , as the Class Recording does real Justice to your song . I'm listening on my Laptop here in an unusually sunny Stoke-on-Trent , & its sounds mesmerising . Highs are ( in No order ) , Vocals ( beautiful , happy ) , Guitar sound is VERY Epic . I haven't looked at your Band pictures , but I have an Image in mind . All in All its a Great "Feel-Good" song , expertly crafted by your band , & Superbly recorded . I wish you well for the future . Rob the bass player here .
Digging the tune!Wow! Just came across this song. I really like it and I am going to check out your other stuff. I will like and recommend. Anything to help the cause, right? Gotta get the word out there somehow. Do you have Youtube videos? Send me a few links. I am all about helping my fellow musicians :) Bo - The Spiders
High energy, great tuneThis song is aptly listed as progressive classical rock. The mixture of heavy guitars, the solid classically-influenced instrumental introduction, the transitions between vocal pieces... this song is well-produced, the quality of the recording and production is superb. Truly top shelf. The vocals are clear and well-delivered. The subtle instrumental accents enhance rather than detract from the overall feel of the song. I would buy a CD of this band's material without a second thought.
Lucy in the Sky with DesiThe band name 'The Antique Harmoniums' is SO MISLEADING!!! This song is completely the opposite of what I expected! We are asked to review so many different styles here, and so many present a very difficult challenge in that they are very far from anywhere near professional. HERE we have a very professional production by very talented musicians in a very smart composition. Only slightly dated by certain musical phrases easily recognized from elsewhere in the past, but also, there are changes and melodic movements here that are refreshingly unexpected. So, KUDOS to this group!!! I adore the lead singer's voice! Very sweet! The most dated aspect here is the production of the guitars. Very 1980s. Everything else is very clean and clear. The production breathes very easily. The only thing I was add is some fat warmth to the overall track at the point of mastering. It feels a bit thin throughout. Otherwise, I am a huge fan of this group! Great Job!!! -Kieron
Really classy production and exocution.Talent seem to run thick in this band. The production is slick without being overblown. Vocals are smooth and composition is nicely done. I'm so glad that Texas is producing such talent. Seeking out their other material is well worth any music lovers time.
voice of an angelgood intro good old fashioned rock guitar and then a phases of dream guitar takes you away to the vocal , lovely voice nice acoustic guitars , this is really good feeling music the voice is really interesting. I'm in love with the voice, lovely little keyboard trill cool guitar break this is getting better all the time, heavy riff and then , too much guitar and then the voice , this is what makes the song beautiful like an angel, the voice is key , its really beautiful , this girl is very special as are the band, they've got a great feel , well produced and arranged, i wish it was a little bit longer just to hear more of her voice, but I'm sure ill hear it again, my only criticism, is more voice and less guitar, but i was left with a great feeling after listening to this good luck girl and guys or girls and guys who knows but < yes i loved this so romantic , i played this song 4 times and i would recommend this to anybody , she has the feel regardless what she was singing i can see them doing any style and the voice would carry any type or style of music, the band is very lucky to have such a talented voice, all the way from Texas, all the very best , keep doing what your doing you"ll get there xx
Nice songVery nice song, I like it a lot, the vocals are good you have a very nice voice, the instruments are well chosen for this song and work well, the guitars are great specially the solos, the mix is very clear, you have done a very good job with this song, 5 stars is what I give it, good luck.
Super smoothAll the great qualities of The Antique Harmoniums are coming through again in this track. The changes between instrumental and vocals are super smooth, showing the musical talent and imagination of each performer without showing off. As usual very well produced and well balanced mix. I love when the vocal melody line goes up a half tone. I tried hard to find a suggestion, but sorry, this song is just great as it is.
