I can feel an Editor’s Pick coming…

The production is simply mind-boggling, and there’s heaps of originality and energy in there. The pella fits perfectly of course.

Doghouse, this little ditty is undeniable. First off, you have accomplished to make the vocals “sit” in the mix where it feels like the whole band was tracked live. The ambience of the instruments fit perfectly.

Second- GREAT drum sounds! I loe the smack of the snare. Not tooooo crazy about the piano screams “midi” to me (I hope that I didn’t give you indigestion with that comment) so I’d love to hear a richer acoustic piano sound.

Also, great job on the B sections. The chord progression is very inventive, almost epic- sounding.

Rage on :)

I sincerely appreciate yor thoughtful critique of my ol magnum opus. And don’t you worry none about my sensitive stomach. I took a Pepcid just in case. And, you know what? It seems ta be workin.

Is this your definition of a boombastic snare(drum)sound?

That_s smashing sort of!

The arrangement and your chord progression is BOOM BASTIC!

Nice! Ignoring the home key gives it real verve.
