Stand Up...Basic rock in good and bad. Song has a great start and it takes attention. First 30 seconds are crucial can it make it or not. As I choose songs for Radio station rock shows I always think is this worth of airplay? Close but, I recommend something to think about. You have a way too much background vocals. It gets a bit boring. Idea and structure of the song is good and this has kind of rock anthem style. What you need is a producer who listen and put it to be tighter package. All other elements are done well. Balance, vocals, instruments and mixing is good enough. Producer should also check what is the highlight of this song. This is something we could play some times but need more to make it smasher.
Review of "STAND UP"I listened to the song, and fundamentally, the whole song is good....but, the added "background shouts", really ruined the song for me. It's almost like you guys had a pretty decent 'anthem song', but the 'shouts' take a lot away from the song,(possibly because I hear a child's voice?), and it sends the song sideways in my opinion. Great music and vocals-good mix- so the song is merely flawed, not broken. Possibly just use the leads voice or just the string players (with no effects), and the song is a good run at a decent "anthem" song. Respectfully Dave/CHRONIC PAIN
Standup reviewWhen I listened to your song, it seemed to me as if I was listen Iistening to John Mellencamp, May be I am totally wrong, but the melody and the music composition part sounds perfect and especially I loved the voice part of the singer, the music well synchronized is best in its originality. The voice to me seems like John Forgerty, May be again I am wrong at this part. Well overall the synchronization is perfect, and wish you all the best!! Cheers!

It doesn't get any betterStrangely enough this song is devoid of any shortcomings of whatsoever. Musically it is absolutely immaculate. The sound of the recording is well balanced and poised, musical parts are well performed and absolutely to the point. The only thing I might doubt is the very song wording lyrics-wise. We are, of course, to protect ourselves, sure, only that this world is too exhausted and broke to be able to undergo any kind of insurgency whatsoever. But this is none of my business, just personal response. One thing is totally clear though: we free to act in a manner we choose. Besides, any poetry of a song may be ambivalent for a good measure, and you can never expect that.
Group grooveNice to hear a group of people rockin on the same groove. Needless to say, I love songs with many singers and back up vocals. Lyrics are understandable, which is a plus. Song could really use being anchored with a nice hot snare in the beat. A song like this needs strong drums to push the highs higher in the spectrum and the bass pushed lower. Best of luck to these guys.
Stand Up SoloI love when I get to hear "local" bands when they create new music. I always have high hopes we'll hear the next big thing. On this recording, I am totally into the music - but the production makes the sound sound... I dunno, a little clouded, muffled. The "crowd" chanting Stand Up is NOT a plus to the song. I'd rather have the singer just sing/shout out Stand Up, etc... I think it would be stronger. Nice lead vocals.
Stand upFirst I like the name of your band. Nice beat. Music is clean. Definitely different music. Kind of rock and dance. Voice is good but background vocals are a little strange. Everything sound tight and simple which is good. Although the song is clean it’s not radio quality music. Just doesn’t stand out where I can say wow. Not saying it’s bad because it’s not bad. Just not what I think is radio quality music. Best of luck to you in the future
Verry Nice BackUp VoicesWe give you 5 stars of course. Thats not only for the Backup Voices sounding like young people. Its for the drums also verry much. We just love the Hammond you have also here with verry nice Rythmguitar. Sincerely Yours
HiOne of The Best Song I hear today...It gave me a spark to listen more..I like The Energy in the recording ( i will close my eyes on some small "tune" misses )..I like Your song..I hope You will have a success to pitch it to The AM / FM Radio stations ..( make sure it is between 2.5 - 3.5 min long )...I will also try to pitch it to some good Music Publisher and let see what will happen..as You know who know what They are looking for.. I wish You a good luck.. Good Job...
Unpaved HighwayReally cool riff in the intro. it´s a catchy song and for sure very commercial. nice harmonic moves, and strong rhytmics. The voice is accurate and in tune, and have an identity, really cool...sounds like classic 70s rock and roll. You can improve your guitar sound , more clear , and "fat" to give strenght to your sound..nice song
Fairly generic but enjoyableSimple and traditional rock chord progressions but nice use of the organ giving it a doors reminiscent feel. Vocals are probably a bit too light for this sort of tune, and not sure the child vocals in the background are that great but a solid enough tune
Good work!Hi! First of all I think this is a very good Song! The Song is Simple and very radio-friendly. And this is a good Thing, maybe the Song Need a more production, in my opinon the guitars need more Power in the background. In this version the Song is good, but in a very rock direction the Song Will be Amazing! More Power in the instruments and you will have an hit Song. I like the voice Melody and the choirs in the back, the drum is very Simple and the bass made a good work. I think that this is a good Song, i can Imagine One day to turn in the radio and listen It! Really Cool, I Hope a very good future for you in the future. So now I Want ti listen more.
Simple but convincingI personally like the idea of musicians "not backing down" from what they believe in, i.e. good music. You may pose a question: what kind of music is that? I'll explain: music dating back to the 70s. Why? Don't me laugh: because any music played today globally has its roots in the 70s. It was the time when the modern age style had been forged for decades to come. Take any significant act of those days, be it Pink Floyd or Zeppelin or the Fab Four, it was them who laid ground for anything to be done then-after. No chance for us left to escape the impact wielded by Santana, Yes or Genesis, or Doobie Brothers. And I'm telling you this: Unpaved Highway guys made the right choice, in my view. All they now have to do is proceed in this direction further on. The rest will be rock-and-roll history.
Classic rockThe intro of the song remind me Deep Purple a bit, a little softer though. The main vocal sounds great, it's like Ian Gillan meets Mark Nophler. The song has a very catchy chorus part and pours a lot of energy on the listener. The only thing that I don't completely like is the effects used on the backing vocals. It's kinda children shouting "Stand up". Anyway it's a good rock song with a strong 70ths - 80ths vibe. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and fans.
