Nice!The music is nice, and I like it. I think it does have that down to earth vibe to it. I like this one a lot, and you're on your way to getting an award somewhere . Keep producing beat work like this, and keep your touch on it. This is unique and original. I think this is a hit for sure. Nice one! By the music you can tell that you are passionate about your work as every artist should be. Never give up and dreams and bigger things will follow! PEACE!
Deceptive title but a good songI liked this song...while I can't say it had a really catchy hook, and it's not exactly what I would call a toe tapper, the guitar playing is really good, the recording quality is excellent and the singers voice has a gravelly tone reminicient of Tom Waits or Captain Beefheart (one of my favorites). I didn't really get whatt the titile had to do with the lyrics and this song is very wordy with a long message decrying entitlements and a recurring theme about niot deserving benefits, which I think should have been the title to the song. To be honest, I dont really go for preachy songs because while musicians may have insights into creativity, they certainly dont have any more wisdom about how to live your life than the ordinary Joe. In fact, as everyone know, many musicians have more difficulty than most when it comes to living a functional life...myself included. I am not one to criticize anybodies lyrics however, I couldnt write a good verse if my life depended on it. The only thing I can ever think to write about are mountains, canyons, bones, the wind, coyotes. or how some Betty fucked me over.
Attorney Blues reviewThis song moves with a steady blues rock groove. That being said it takes some nice twists to add interest to the listener. The rythum section is not fancy but very steady for this style of blues. The singer sounds like Wolfman Jack, (no kidding) butit fits the style very well. My favorite part of the song was the great lyrics full of spiritual conversion & testimony. Nice job. I'm looking forward to more from these guys!
Suck a throat logenze.It sound to me that the dusty roads have taken their toll on Jerry's vocal chords and attempting to sing is causing him some problems. Singing about Jesus always makes me think of those multi-millionaire preachers that gullible U.S.followers send money to in the hopes of getting to heaven. If he needs to sing this stuff, may I suggest that he takes a listen to the gospel type songs on The Prisoners' Songbook (Spotify, CD Baby). They sound as if they might suit him down to the ground and could make him a few bob. Having tunes makes all the difference.
HiI'm hearing a Nice Melody but..everything else is not ready for a 'Big World"..This is an Just Idea for a Nice song butin order to be pick up by Someone It has to be rerecorded..with Much Better Quality..in tody Music World Music Publishers and Radio Stations looking for Radio Ready Quality Recording and sorry to say but Yours is not on that level yet..well send This to Music Insiders and I Really think They will agree with me...and if You will rerecord..remember They are looking for 3.5 - 4. min long song MAX..I wish You good luck..again I really like the Melody Line..
