It is very hard to find anything to nitpick in any of your work but I think he had a valid point as I kind of thought that before I read his comment. Other than that small detraction everything works. I like the gritty vocal processing. My final comment, It rocks! Tom


Tom - thanks for the great review. Not sure if you saw my response to Ray about the solo, but, I agree. I could not find anything in BIAB that would produce the kind of screaming, edgy, soaring Rock lead that I wanted. I don't think BIAB has that covered - one of the few times I've been unable to find an appropriate lead/solo from the Box...

Thanks, Janne. Good to know that the Rock thing came across in this... "something new" for me....

Cool tune.... certainly a wee tad different for you. Nice work though. I need to listen to it on cans.... sounds pretty solid so far.

My best to you,

Such power in that song! The guitar is killing it! I definetely see that tune in a movie like The Punisher, the Equalizer or Jack Reacher! Mix is incredible too. Really really an awesome tune!

Ray - that was all new to me. And certainly has a Punk aspect to it...

I was actually trying for more of a Hard Rock Country thing....

Sorry for getting to this so late. I heard it a couple days ago, and it wasn't doing anything for me. So I figured that was a sign that something was seriously wrong with my ears. sick

Since then, I found a short in my headphones, which explains a lot. crazy

Clearly, this song is outside the expected fj songs, and it does a great job breaking expectations. Vocal effects, angry lyrics, an entirely different attitude.

Works for me now! laugh

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

I really liked your lyrics on this one. "always living in the past, that ain't living at all" is so true.

As usual everything is perfect.

Man I wish I had your talent!


I appreciate that, Mario. Thanks!!

Amen...they just keep diggin' that hole deeper and deeper.
Might've been Dylan that said many folks had rather pull you down in the hole they're in than come up where you are.

OK, mr jane check another genre off the shorter and shorter list. That would be interesting alone but when they all are this good it becomes quite remarkable.

Several folks mentioned Cowboy Punk -- hmmm, Dwight Yoakum referred to his music as that early on. This is much more modern in sound, a la, Tyminski.

The lyric, the cool processed vocal, the band, the mix are all standout.

Powerful.

OK on to EDM.

J&B

PS Nice edgy artwork!



HA! That EDM thing ain't gonna happen. I can't rap, either... But hopefully we can all try stretching the boundaries now and again...
Thanks for the great comments.

I really wouldn't mind, if you'd come up with stuff like thatonce a week.

Couldn't love it any better !!!!!

Take care,

Stefan


UNFLOYDISH. Love that, Stefan. Thanks for all the nice comments.
Hope y'all are doing well. Things are looking up here. We've been looking down for far too long.

good at heavy rock as you are at country. smile It makes life hard for the rest of us!

Well, this is just fabulous. The big Tannoys don't get fired up so much these days, but in your honour
I ran this through them LOUD and proud. Absolutely commercial in the very best sense of the word and I can
live with the solo even if it wasn't Slash!

Super vocals and TC worked wonders with the harmonies.
My wife (the Northern Soul girl) said it was "All right" and believe me, that's pretty good - she's
a hard girl to please and not one for the superlatives.

More of this stuff please.

ROG.


ROG - thanks for the nice comments. Good to know that this holds up to scrutiny... and the Tannoys! smile I'm always looking for way to mix it up a little, so I might do more of this in the future...who knows... Thanks! again...

Thanks Scott. That riff is a loop. There are 4 snippets that repeat throughout the song - those 4 make up the opening. This is a bit edgier than "modern Country" - but that is becoming a wider category thises days...

I can't compete with everyone else's compliments on this forum, so I'll suffice with the following words: Fantastic!
The guitar I heard from the start was amazingly bright, in contrast with your vocals in that first part.
The melody is very energetic and nearly left me sitting exhausted after the last tone. Close to a ledge...

So Floyd, with this song you showed me another side of your musical skills and I liked it.

Keep surprising me!
Hans


Thanks, Hans. Just trying to keep you on your toes. smile

Did I say WOW? You definitely got a real smoker with this one...



Bawb - I really appreciate that!! Now if I could only belt them out like YOU can...THAT would be something....

Ohh my...
FJ, this is probably the most powerful tune I have heard by you.
I am glad I waited a bit to listen to this casually. I do not know where to start. Did not expect so much drive out of it. Sitting totally hammered smile
Excellent lyrics, composition. Vocals are very, very good. To me personally I think the most interesting was the blend between acoustic and electronic instruments which is so easy to screw up. You done excellent job in fusing genres and instruments! Total blast. Thank you for sharing.

Reminds me of something Credence could have written.
Very gritty and powerful. Most enjoyable.

Speech to text errors happen...mostly because of this human. I’m time crunched and am not going to let perfection stop action. This is posted on page 6, so more than likely, most will not see it anyway. That being said...

This is me going out on a ledge.

Anyone that starts a post with “Get outta your rut” and ends that post with “Live on the Edge” is trying to get a point across.

Everything is in place production wise, “lyrically” and performance. I can’t disagree with that. I think the overall treatment of the tone and energy of the instruments and sections emphasize the lyrics VERY well. THAT is what it is to have everything working together to do one thing…send a NOT so subtle message.

I’m on page six of the comments and the majority of what I see are comments about the production, the lyric writing, quoting of lyrics...all of the usuals. Within the majority, there is another majority. A great number of the comments are along the lines of “Wow FJ. This sounds nothing like you!”, “This doesn’t sound like any of your other songs, SO much heavier / more angry/ I’m used to your nice-ness / this isn’t a broken heart song (ok, I added that one. smile ) It’s like he’s actually practicing what he preaches both in lyric and in actually doing the song in the first place! And yet...very little mention of that. Doing a song about breaking out of what’s all been done before, by breaking out of what you’ve always done wasn’t lost on me.

It makes me wonder a bit if we are possibly more caught up in the technicalities of writing, production, and delivery of performance; but missing what the whole thing is about. Not every song has to have a strong message; but are we able to recognize it when it does?

There are hints of lyrics members like, appreciate, or are impressed by. TommyAD even picked a line that is his personally philosophy in life. But I really felt as this comment was made by a person who really had some insight about the song, not as pieces, but as unified piece of work.

Just some food for thought, I would guess Ember to be one of the younger members of the forum.

I understand not everyone needs to have the philosophy of the song. But it seems to send a message that may have been lost. I feel as though this song is a mirror for the entire forum; that the man who wrote is willing to actively stand in front of himself.

I hope none of what I’m saying comes across as preaching. That’s not my intent. I’m simply stating my personal observation...of which I have been very wrong on before.

Either way, I think this song needed to be made for whoever needs to hear it. If you think “not me” consider another listen. wink

Now I’m going to go give it another listen. smile
