A million milesFor me, there is always something special about a person, that dares to give and to share of themselfves, with only an acoustic guitar and vocal. First of all the ambience is very nice and second, it becomes somewhat rather personal. The artist is stripped of all effects like you have in a professional music studio, so the nature of the song shines thrue in its simplicity. In its entirety a nice presentation with a vulnerability in the voice, nice. Thumbs up for sharing from your heart. Regards from Lars Christian Størkersen. Fresh Percussion Studio. Norway.
A Million MilesAt the very first your vocal sounds like John Lennon! Sounds like it came from the Album of Acoustic songs that was released after he passed.if you can find it take a listen. The song was good ,good vocals good guitar i liked the way it was so different from the other one i listened to.(i liked that one too) Keep puttin those songs up here i wait for another with bated breath.
Uplifting progressive trackThe secret of writing a good song is firstly not to overthink it too much, Thomas displays this excellently the track has a catchy rhythm that drives the song through to the climax. The lyrics are melancholy with a hopeful element that isn't overstated and beautifully compliments the guitar perfectly. The basis for a great song is here I think it would benefit from a middle section that changes the dynamic of the track and rather than a faded ending something that finishes the track in a more memorable way. I can imagine driving my car on a sunny day listening to this track. Its relaxing, easy to listen to and has a summer lazy day vibe that makes you want to kick back, relax and enjoy a nice cold beer with friends. Well done Thomas keep up the great work.
A Million MilesLet me start by saying that I review songs with the thought of whether they are viable for pitching to an established artist. The other option is.... if one reviews in terms of artistic concept....(you as an artist)..... Either your like it of you don't. Nice voice and basic melody is good. Easy to listen to recording with guitar a voice balanced well. The issue I'm hearing is the melody and chord changes are the same throughout the song. That is not necessarily all bad but the songs that use that format have a different melody for each section to identify and promote the feeling of movement forward. A good example might be Joe Cocker's version of "Feelin Alright" If it were me.... I would check out some of the artists you like and see how they use melody to move from section to section. The other thing I might look at would be the lyrical content. The main idea (A Million Miles) is good but the supporting thoughts around the that main concept seem to lack focus. Better word choices that relate more to your own personal ....(exposing your inner thoughts is always hard)...... experiences usually helps out. Again using the artists you identify with and seeing how they use lyrics is a good option. I hope this helps in some small way.... Good Luck and Keep Writing! RW
I like itDo not know why, but some how this song is catching me. Can not analyse it. Its a very simple song (in the positive way) with a clear message. So please continue with many other songs, like this.
A Millionth reviewsomething about the song got into my bones. I do love a good montra style song pattern and think that may be it. It sounded like you may be holding your vocals back. I suggest you trust your talent and let it fly. nice tune, short, sweett and sincere. Good tone and guitar movements. I found myself humming the tune after it stopped and I was writing this review. I have heard some decent tunes come out of Denmark and trust you will follow in that trend. push on!
A Million MilesYou are playing the Guitar very well and I hope you will find a band to give this Track more power. Your voice is nice and the Lyrics are also good Ich denke du hast den Song sehr trocken aufgenommen trotzdem alles in allem eine coole Nummer Greats from Germany by G.W.Scott
pretty simple and straight forwarddecent song. has a good point. i like the lyrics and poetry to it. the intro could use an instrumental melody over the guitar chords to spice it up a bit. i do believe the verse melody and chorus melody are the same but to show a little difference between them you could put a harmony over it and it would really make it pop. some violins in the bridge and you could have a really complete song. it seems like you left it open to put some more work into it so if you ever go back to it, id say definitely beef it up with harmonies, melodies, and violins
ReviewHey great song dude! I really like the flow of the guitar the minor to Major and the Rhythm. Lyrics are good too. The recording itself to me obviously sounds like maybe a rough draft? A little mixing and tweaking here and there I'd give it a 4.5! Keep up the good work bro!
A Good StartHey Thomas, you've got a catchy melody. The song has a throw back feel to the 90's and all the great alternative bands. I think you've got some really good "bones" to the song which you can build on. I like your voice too!
Straight songHave listened to this song a couple of times. Grabed me right from the start. An nice tune with good feeling. Thomas Kaxe shows, that some chords are enough for a good song. The lyrics comes from the heart and touches soul. The unique vocal from the singer stand out with a soft vocal projection. The tune have a light grunge-style. This song isn´t complex and on a low recording quality. The guitar never stops and stepping all over the vocal what someone can happen, when there are no partners with other instruments, voice, or group. But still, I´m sure you will like to add it.
its for youi think the song has merit, sure your going to work on it ,think you have a few gimmicks and a few landscapes sounds dark lonely like a modern piece, i do like the song would re record maybe let a girl sing it get a band to help,
Nicely presented, good songGreat foundation good song overall. Let' s cut right to the Chase and discuss how it could potentially be made more "present". The guitar technique is too repitive, the downvstfums never change. The guitar really never attached to any portion of the lyric line. Just continue as a somewhat repetitive backing. The song then gets lost in this . Try using a picking technique or intergrating space, almost silence where most applicable. I would slow it down just a bit, focus on the emotion of the song and be it. I want to feel what the song is presenting. As it stands now,. I hear a lot of repitive guitar with singing in top of it that seems to be making a statement, but not quite sure. It tells a story but doesn't t make me really care about it. A lot of potential with this song, just need to make it a little more unique. Space is good. It pulls the listener into your experience, and hopefully brings forth a glimpse of their own. Al the best to you!

IdkThe raw simplicity of this take is both what makes it work and what makes it lack just enough to keep listening and yearning to hear it take shape. The melody is clean, catchy, yet trudges on. There's a repetitive quality that allows us to get to know the tune quickly and before too long, cast it aside...because it will continue to reverberate between our ears endlessly if we don't.
