Howdy Elliot...

I gave it a spin.

Well put together pop song.
Nothing jumps out at me....clean, balanced mix, good performance of the tune.
You have a good clear voice and the harmonies work well.
I thought the harmonies could come up a db or so but that's not a crit....just a personal observation.


Well done....

Nicely done. I like the contrast between the totally dry vocal and the reverbed vocals.

Good write and presentation, Elliott. Excellent choice of bandmates. The harmony really sells it. Good bouncy feel, which can definitely influence one's choice of how that life should be lived. Happy to hear it. I'm now onto Perfect Harmony --one of my favorites.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks everyone for the kind words. This is one of the only songs I did that is ALL BIAB ... I cant take any credit. I wrote, arranged and produced this in a single Sunday afternoon. Thanks to the magic of BIAB.

I really liked the stereo vocal spread.
very tasty.
those high vocs toward song end are very very 'catchy'.

happiness.

You sure made very professional use of the program then. This sounds really good.

Your vocal and harmonies have a Cat Stevens feel to them. I like that.

Hi Elliott,

This is a good Pop song and good groove.
Yes interesting vocal panning.
Minor suggestion - I think you could maybe add a little more reverb to your solo vocals to make them sit down in the mix.

Best Regards

Sounds great in my headphones! smile

Excellent arrangement - smooth movement between instruments, everything interlocks and keeps the attention without crowding out the vocals.

And, or course, the vocals work really well - expressive lead singing and cool harmonies.

The echoing lyric and descending bass line help make the song "stick in my ear" after listening to it.

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

Hi Elliot ...

Super pop rock song! BIAB can be a marvelous tool when used to its best advantage - as you did with this song.

Like Herb said ... the contrasting vocals are great. They create some delicious dimensions in the vocal presentation. Really, really nice song.

That was a Sunday afternoon put to good use ... thanks for treat! Most of my songs, primarily instrumentals, are done from inception to posting in 5 or 6 hours - often less time than that.

Sweet!!!

Alan

Hello Elliot.
I’m not a lover of pop and not qualified to give an in depth critique but I think you did a good job on this.
Maybe a few too many cliches but a decent effort.

Wow! Janice almost immediately said, "well I'll have that in my head for a while." smile

The arrangement, the lyric and your vocals (cool BGV's) simply grab you from the get go to the end.

And this is a showcase in the showcase for the excellence of an all BiaB production ... in talented hands.

Well done!

Elliott, this is a fantastic pop song

Great vocal and outstanding stereo spread

Super backing band and mix

Two thumbs up

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
