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.

Later,

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

I am beginning to expect stuff like this from you as every song you do seems to be perfectly produced/written etc etc

Marvelous stuff

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
