|So I decided to check out the stream on a whim, and your album is pretty nice even though I'm not hugely into alt-rock, I was impressed with your vocalist who has a decent range and is very solid overall, I also gotta say that the production of this thing sounded way more professional than I would have thought, I dare even say a bit more texture and bit less polish/gloss may have even been better. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this sounds like it's been recorded by professionals and that is impressive.|
The instrumentation is solid overall, but I feel like you could try to take a few more risks here and there. There is nothing wrong with any of it, but it's pretty middle of the road for the most part. I will say that "Cannonball" had a very nice groove to it and your rhythm-section is generally pretty good.
On the songwriting side, you guys again did a good job but could branch out a little more, do something slightly less middle of the road, the EP consists of 5 upbeat midtempo tracks and could do with a little more variety. My favorite Tracks are the first 2 tracks, Blue Sky Believer has the highest amount of energy and the chorus is pretty memorable and I enjoy Cannonball for it's strong groove.
This may sound like I'm criticizing very much, but like I said, I did enjoy the EP and will listen to it again, just wanted to give my 2 cent's.
|Thanks for the feedback man! We definitely have room for improvement and those are all really good points. Just gotta keep honing our craft. I like your advice about taking a few more creative/instrumental risks. Better finish up that ballad, ha. Appreciate you checking it out!|
|i think i'll give it a listen later|
|Thanks for listening, guys.|
