Feedback on Finished songs / Re: Thieving Hands

I thought this was a powerful mid-tempo piece, very nicely produced with all the elements finding their space (there's a lot going on but it doesn't feel cluttered).  Nothing I would suggest to change.  The synth/guitar balance put me in mind of latter-day Genesis.  Nice to hear one of your tracks and I look forward to hearing more.

Hey, quality fists-pumping-the-air positive hi-energy track here.  Really good vocals and solid production.  For me it reminded me of Bon Jovi or something of that ilk.

Well, if you must change something, make sure it’s not the intro, coz that’s killer.

Don’t think there’s much I’d change with this at all to be honest, it’s a powerful song with a good vocal hook.

I might bring the guitar solo up a smidge, but that’s about it.

Great work.

Awesomely authentic blues, really well put together.

Some incredibly proficient playing and the harmonica was sublime.

Enjoyed the Hammond style organ poking through towards the end.

This all fits together spot on for me.

Lots of interesting melodic elements in this to hold interest and you bring them in and out a move them all about nicely (oh oh the Hokey Cokey).

I think you’ve arranged it really well, although personally I’m not a huge fan of having the lead vocal to one side, as I find it a little off putting. In this case it did seem to allow space for the other instruments to be heard though, so I think it could grow on me.

Very nice, delicate track.

Competitions / Re: Wanna write the Bond theme?
« Last post by adamfarr on Today at 10:29:36 AM »
@cowparsleyman not bad for a lunchtime dalliance! I think the tongue in cheek Bonds are probably the best. (Or give me Austin Powers!) On the other hand I do like the musical challenge to produce something that goes with what we think the film might be like (I’m guessing they let Billie see it already which gives her an unfair advantage dammit). Possibly what I hear in my head is way in advance of what I am capable of but we’ll see about that...

Lyrics / The place where ideas ran out
« Last post by maya sagi on Today at 09:27:27 AM »
River swept by with the currents sank me to the ground
 I learn to kick my feet to float and rediscover what I already found
 broken bridges that are never to be rebuilt
 a curvy road with no sign of human saul cause no one wants to be
at the place where ideas ran out
broken building made of desire
tumble down in smoke and fire
and wind blows just to reveal what used to be
the outline of my biggest trait
so i have nothing left to do but wander with myself

 at the place where ideas ran out where did they go?
 what its all about? I really dont know
 its so empty and quiet dont know where to go
 but ill just keep walk on by and look for this toughts
 cause this is the place where ideas ran out

 keeping myself busy by having a convrosation in my mind
 reminding myself how i used to beleive that love is blind
 that we dont pick who we love based on their image
 but based on we are and we are alone with our feelings
 but i cant be that girl again i have seen some stuff ive changed
 but i still have the habit of always asking how and why
 so heres a good one if im not that girl who am i
  am i the girl who let  achievements get into her head
 am i the one who sings about sadness without being sad
 am i the one who starts the fight just to feel the hit
 am i the one who always finds something to bu hurt from even tho im landing on my feet

 at the place where ideas ran out where did they go?
 what its all about? I really dont know
 its so empty and quiet dont know where to go
 but ill just keep walk on by and look for this toughts
 cause this is the place where ideas ran out

it feels lonley out in here the weather is hot but i am cold
 and all the water from my hair touches the ground and truns to gold
 to show me im one the right way to recuptre all this time
 and as i take my hand to squeeze my hair i discover that the answer was always there
 they say time can heal most anything but it dosent heal our scars
 but it does have tha ability to make them who we are

 at the place where ideas ran out where did they go?
 what its all about? I really dont know
 its so empty and quiet dont know where to go
 but ill just keep walk on by and look for this toughts
 cause this is the place where ideas ran out

 i ralized everything can be rebuilt
 so i go to the broken bridge next to me
 and start to piece it toghter brick by brick hope by hope tought by tought goal by goal




hey sorry if my english is bad it's not my first language

Enjoyed this, The Vox & acoustic have an intimate feel along with a really cool
Celtic vibe groove (love Celtic , I cant play it but enjoy those who can!) Lyrics
are spot on for this, Like Shadowfax said for us who listen loud the main Vox
is a bit overpowering but very nice job this !!

Welcome back Alan :) Love everything about this song :-* the Celtic vibe works really well. Loved the violin and mandolin solos.  :)
The sentiment of this song really brings back childhood memories of the fairs that would come though town once a year. We don't see any these days, which is kind of sad. I really like the lyrics in the choruses and your vocals are as wonderful as ever. Each listen gets better and better  :)

A fantastic Christmas journey...switches effortlessly between lovely images of fun and frivolity and then kicks you in the teeth with the uncomfortable truth...all wrapped up in the inimitable style that's all your own.

Super sentiments behind this too...I loved it and thank you for highlighting the plight of those less fortunate than us at what must be a pretty grim time of year for some.

Great stuff, CS!

Thanks for such a thoughtful and kind review Paul. I'm glad you found the switch between genres smooth. I was a little worried about that.
There seem to be more and more homeless these days, even in my small town, which was once a rare sight. Fortunately a new 44 room housing unit was just build and some of the homeless, were moved in before the weather dropped below freezing.
