Another Cigarette (new orig)
 
Looking for some feedback on one of my latest songs. I've been taking a new approach writing recently and focusing on keeping things simple.

All the synths were done in Reason and I played the guitars and did vocals.

Dang dude that's killer I think your new writing style paid off. Excellent song rock on.

Izolus 10-13-2012 06:14 PM

Yeah, I agree with the guys above. It's got quite a nice style to it as well

I will echo the others. It has a cool vibe to it. First thing that came to mind was "Can't You See" by Marshall Tucker Band. Probably not what you were going for but I'd bet I'm older than you. :D

Thanks for the replies guys! Listening to it now I can definatly hear 'Can't You See' in a way, ha not my intention but I do like Marshall Tucker Band.

Pretty good tune. Got better as it went along and it was nice to listen to. I personally wouldn't have had the lead guitar come in so early so to let the song build up more in intensity. Also, the mixing and EQ could do with some tweaking. Some parts reminded me slightly of Sparklehorse, but with extra guitar... don't know if that's just me. Anyway, there honestly is much potential here! Keep up the good work.

element,
The beginning reminds me of 'No Rain' by Blind Melon. Some of the guitar playing is pretty tight, other parts could be tighter. Keyboards are nice. Vocals are good. It's a nice song overall. Please review my music at this link:

I actually really dug that, kind of had that 90's vibe to it. Reminded me more of "Change" by Blind Melon than "No Rain". Then it took that whole cool turn at the end. Vocals could be a little louder so I could understand at 1:09, unless it was more intended as just adding an atmospheric layer. I couldn't tell.

Critique my band's music video if you want, both the audio and visual
