The Dave Laib Project / Songs / Plain To See

In MY Opinion

Greetings, 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 enjoyed the guitar work.Think about a little less processing on the vocals, because your vocals are smooth and natural,The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. 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 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


Voz profunda, me gusta este tipo de voz. La canción me parece muy buena, instrumentalmente está muy bien, aunque hay un exceso de punteado con la guitarra por medio que corta un poco la melodía de la voz, por lo demás todo suena de manera adecuada sin abusos instrumentales que la hagan pesada. Muy buena en general, le daría una puntuación más alta, pero el abuso de la guitarra hace que la baje un poco.

Hey Dave, you definitely have a classic story that deserves a lot more exposure, I have heard a lot of good guitar pickers, but none any better then displayed herein, I would only advise another pass at the song with bringing the vocals more out front to tell the story more succinctly. It is good but could be a bit stronger to get the message across to a broader audience of listeners. Wishing you nothing but success with it.

A nice piece of country pop!

This song rolls along nicely in a rocking country kind of way, with clean-sounding guitar intro and breaks between verses, a deep and slightly indistinct singing voice, and an easy backbeat. The subject matter of the song is a pretty well-worn path (fidelity, relationships, control, trust) and many of the other mainstays of the singer-songwriter world. It is, as so often, a song from the singer's perspective, with no indication that there is anything multi-layered, metaphorical or 'other ' about the semantic content. A nicely constructed piece of country pop!
