RockingI'm diginin the electronic intro it sets up the whole song quite nicely. the whole song is rocking. the instrumentation to this song is a 10 out of 10. The performance and song writing is a 10 out of 10. I give the production a 9 out of 10 but it still a great song to check out and listen to. My overall score will be a 4.9 out of 5. Even with a little production flaws that gives the song some character. the song still successfully gets the point and message across and grabs and keeps your attention and that's what makes this song great.
Great Rock Song!!This song is very well written and instrumentally balanced.I like the combination of guitars with synth. The wah on the guitar makes the song stand out. The recording is a little over compressed for my taste but I like the fact that it sounds like a live recording. The vocals need to be upfront just a bit more and it would make for a better overall recording. I like the lyrics as we know life is not always fun.. Good title to the song...fun 'n games
Review of fun 'n gamesThanks Ralph for asking for my review. This has a good level of percussion and drive with the lead guitar. You can feel the high energy of the music. I do like how it is not drawn out with continuous repetition for long periods of time. It is short and sweet and to the point. Everything is clear and pronounced, unlike some other music I have heard, the lyrics were not as clear and as for me I am not for explicit, we are all however telling a story where in my opinion doesn't say much. Great work! All the best my friend..keep it up.
awesomethe best l have listened to so far keep up with the music there is no doubt you will go so far l cant wait to hear more music from you let me know if you have an album out l got to admit l love it
fun 'n games reviewThis track is nice. Nice intro and outro along with a nice selection of instruments. Vocals, lyrics and transitions were all on point and stayed in sync and on tempo with the beat throughout the track. Noting negative to add, sounds very professional. Great work!
Mysteriously NormalAnother good one Ralph. The background chanting in the intro left the impression the song that opened up a few measures later would be almost, spiritual. A wonderful Rock & Roll piece unfolded, and once again, the vocals add a different dimension to the music. I never know what I will hear next with Ralph's music, and "fun 'n games" is a good example. I guess the only way to make sure is to hear it again, and maybe one more time after that. I will be more than happy to review any music that comes out of your brain. Mo' music Ralph.
Fun or not?Funky intro, I love it! It is a little busy, rhythm guitar may be a bit loud, but it is entertaining and head bobbing. Voice reminds me of Marilyn Manson at times, but you could use a bit more intonation to make it more interesting. The effect you put on it, doubling, if not tripling it helps, but it could be better. I don't know how many of you there are total in the band or if it is just one guy, but it is interesting. With a little more technique from the lead singer, you could have something really good with this one!
Games n FunOne of the things I enjoy most about Number One Music artists is the newfound ability to hear music from around the world by singers who I'd never have the chance to listen to otherwise. That, in itself, is a great thing. Here, with this song we get a passionate guitar intro then some wicked vocals. Not terribly dynamic in range, but singers for this type of music probably don't need to try to be Celine Dion.
Great SoundI hear some of those classic 70's -80's Punk-New Wave bands influences Good vocals and guitar sounds .....Ralph Tomaselli music and band sounds more like a New York band than a California band :-)
HiThis is not Your best work..I listen It 2 times and come to conclusion it has to be re write and re recorded..I do not think It will catch The Ear of Music Publisher or Radio DJ..hey send It to Them and let's see what will happen..but do not be surprise if They will agree with me..is ok to be played life but is not ready for The World yet.. work on It.. I wish You good luck with submissions and looking forward to hear some of Yours better Songs...
Not badI get what you're trying to do. Not sure why the tags here say "instrumental", as there are vocals. Overall, sounds a bit like a rough mix as opposed to a finished product. If that's the case - could be interesting when finished. Vocals seem a bit bland. I would add some variation as it comes out a bit like a vocal drone, if that's what you're going for - ok, but then i would crank the guitars up a chunk to really sell it and add some dynamics.
GamesI'm a Strong believer in strong beginnings. You accomplish that with the opening guitars. And although the lyrics are not complicated, it works simple sometimes is better. Good song. Magic
HiThis is not Your best Tune..There is an Idea in Your song but You need to put more work on It.. as It is now to static and predictable.. I think that You know This song need to be re write and re record ..as It is now You will have small chance to be used for a Radio Play or to be pick up by Music Publisher..Try to re record It withe better Arrangement and Vocal..I wish You good luck with submissions.. I know You are able to do much better job..
HiI Think You did this recording for a Fun.. and I must say it was Fun to listen It...I think will be a good for a Life Performance " to keep people going" as It is now.. It need a LOT of work..so rewrite.. rerecord..and let see what will happen .. I do not recommend to send It to Music Publishers and Radio Stations.. do some work and than try ..a;lsomake It a little longer around 3.5 min long.. I wish You good luck.. I hope to hear a better version of this song..
80s rock meets 90s grungeThis track has an 80's meets 90's grunge sound. Pretty cool guitar riffs , drum programming could have been mixed a little lower so the guitar grooves could be driving and up front. Pretty cool though.. nice efforts..
