|5 BUZZWORTHY: Keep an eye on this group/artist.
4 GOOD: You got my attention, even though the song is not perfect
3 FAIR: Average piece of work
2 POOR: Needs a LOT OF WORK
1 UNACCEPTABLE: Should Not have gotten in the studio to waste our time
A) HIT FACTOR/COMMERCIAL 3.5
I love the "Si tu t'en vas" part....as well as the "se pou vou" part. Very catchy. If they had better solos, hmm I would rate it higher.
B) MUSICIANSHIP 3
I think it's great! hmm the guitar is interfering with the vocals too much in the beginning though. Don't like the keyboard solos much.... To me a solo is like another way to communicate the meaning of the song...I couldn't tie in the solos with the lyrics. Not because it's different, but because the solos lack structure.
C) VOCALS 4.5
Great vocals, I think the lead is a little low in the mix. But it's good enough for me to see past that. Kinda reminds me of Patrick St. Eloi.
D) SUBJECT MATTER/LYRICS 3
It's ok. For this type of songs, Too much lyrics can be a bad thing.
Guys not bad all!! I'm looking forward to hearing more from this band!!! Check your keyboard solos please. They are not structured. If you analyze the keys, you see that:
at 3.05 solopart 1
3.16 solo part 2
3.28 solo part 3
3.40 solo part 4
3.50 solo part 5
That's too many solo parts for a solo that last less than 45 seconds. You can either get rid of 2, 4, 5. Stick with 1 and 3 and repeat them 4 times each.
Or repeat each of the 5 parts 4 times. The song will be longer, but that's a better structure. This way you give the public a chance to digest each part.
In conclusion, I would listen to this song again. You've got my attention. I would frown when the solo parts come in, but I'll listen. Great job!
