Hey Rob.

Great song. Shades of Buffalo Springfield in there somewhere.

The chord sequence is all the more effective for being kept simple and the track has a good groove.

The vocals are good, but personally I'd like to hear you power it a bit more. You've got a good rock voice, but it sounds like you're holding back. Have the confidence to let it go a bit more, particularly in the overdubs at the end and it could be great.

Good work.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
