Hi Loved this!
A super Christian song with interesting lyrics.
Nice Rocky style to it. Excellent guitar break too.
Excellent mix - well balance throughout a strengthening feel towards the end and then that soto voce ending. Spot on.
Bangs of "oomph" - us Brits will know what that is - lol!
cheers
ian
Hope the Band is doing well

John,

A beautiful production. Crystal clear! Love your vocal on this (beautifully recorded, too).

Love the melody/music/dynamics of the chorus. Top shelf writing.

And tasty guitar work on top of everything else. Enjoyed several listens...

Professional in every regard.

Hi John.

Good to see one of your songs on here and a great track it is, too.

I loved the super big stereo wash on the backing - we don't see much of that on here and yet, as Floyd said, everything was still crystal clear. Great choice of instrumentation and I particularly liked the "Bruce Hornsby" style piano.

Vocals were amazing, with lots of genuine emotion coming through and the whole package was finished off with a very professional production and mix.

Already looking forward to some more of your stuff.

ROG.

What they said. smile

Your vocals have a Warren Zevon vibe, which gets another +1.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Skyline,

This is a very good song.
I for one enjoyed it.
Tells the story of why we have Christmas.

John,

It's all been said so all I can add to the kudos above is that personally I liked this production and performance a lot.

Solid is every aspect.

I totally agree with all that floyd said. This is as professional as anything I've ever heard. Really, really good work from whichever direction I look at it and capped off with outstanding vocals.

Wow!

All the best,
Noel

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
