Your song, guitar playing, and guitar tone all sound very good!  We need to start reviewing one another's music on this forum, or this forum will just die.  I'm they only person to review someone else's music on this forum in the last 17 days, which is pretty sad.  It's been very dead around here lately.  Perhaps you can review my music at this thread:

I put a new synth song in my music website called "Really Last".  Tell me how you like this song, and how it can be improved, and I promise to C4C (leave me a link).   The song is at the top of this link:

Sebbz0rer,
The song starts nicely.  The vocals are interesting.  Sometimes they sound somewhat artificial (perhaps using a vocoder, or Vocaloid?), and other times they sound real (the vocals without lyrics).  Please elaborate how you did the vocals.  I like the more natural vocals best (during the chorus?).  Drum beat is somewhat unusual.  Synths sound nice, what did you use?  Sound quality is good.  Overall, I like it, and it sounds rather 80's, which is fine by me.  Please review my music at this link:

My wife's grandfather was a hard hat diver.  He doubled for Kirk Douglas in Walt Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (from 1954), in the underwater scenes.  Your song is an interesting combination of styles.  I don't think I've ever heard a song with such distorted guitar and drums, and yet have vocoder vocals.  I still like it though.  Though if it was me, I would have less distortion on the drums.  I like the melodies, especially the piano: it is the most melodic part of the song.  It sounds pretty professional.  Please review my music at this link:

I'm guessing you are from Australia?  In 2005 I bought a new Pontiac GTO (in the USA), which I hear is nearly identical to a Holden Monaro.  I sold it several months ago.  It had a Corvette engine, which is stock.  Great seats, I knew I would miss them.  Anyway, I think your song has potential.  In my opinion, you should do a recording with better audio quality, but maybe that's not your thing (I know lots of people just post rough demos on youtube).  Yes, some of the playing could be tighter.  I think you could develop it more if you are willing to spend the time.  Please review my music at this link:

Just a couple of comments before I review your song.  Perhaps you mistakingly came up with a better lyric than I did.  My song lyric was actually, "Eternity is a long time".   The lead synth in my tune was a Korg TR-Rack (circa 1999), with a built in wah-wah effect that I activated with the keyboard joystick.  Good thing you showed up yesterday, things have been mighty quiet on this forum lately.  OK, now your tune: I read the lyrics before I listened to the song.  Pretty heavy my friend.  The lyrics seemed kind of depressing, but when I actually heard the song, there was way more of a feeling of humor than I anticipated, even though I'm very familiar with your music.  What is kind of funny (in a good way), is the instrumental is upbeat and happy, compared to the subject matter of the lyrics.  It is an interesting contrast, kind of like CCR's song "Bad Moon Rising" (happy instrumental with pessimistic lyrics).  Anyway, the song ended up more amusing and entertaining than I anticipated.  Instrumentally everything sounds good.  The lungfruit vocal style adds an element of humor.  Since I am spiritually inclined, I had a hard time not fixating on your lyric "And I don't care much about the heaven's above".  Perhaps that's how you really feel, or perhaps it is something you didn't seriously mean.  If it is a topic you want to discuss (since eternity is a long time), send me a private message.  Cheers!   
heaven086,
Couldn't get the top song to play (sometimes I have trouble with youtube, especially when it's the first video attempt for the day).  Got the bottom song to play.  Yes, this sounds pretty rough & live.  Not bad for live though.  I could do without the F-bombs, but I knew what I was in for when I played the song.  Most of the singing is pretty good, though sometimes pitchy.  Guitar riffs seem pretty good, though there is so much reverb, it makes it harder to tell what you're playing.  I say do more of a studio version with bass & keyboards; record vocals & guitar separately, and let's see how it sounds.  It seems to have potential, some good melodies.  Please review my music at this link:

Thank you for your comments and question!  I didn't write the song lyrics until after I had at least part of the instrumental worked out.  Check out this link:

The first dinosaur fossil was found in 1677, yet the Jewish Synagogue Umm-Kanatir (400-700 A.D.; on the Golan Heights) has a sculpture that looks like dinosaurs attacking a horse. How can that be?  Young earth creationists (bible believers that believe the earth was created in 6 days, and less than 7,000 years old) get into stuff like this.  Though I think the Hebrew word that was translated into "days", can also mean a period of time.  That is: the world was created in 6 periods of time (and who knows how long those periods were?).  I think the world is most likely much older that 7,000 years, though evidence that dinosaurs lived a few thousand years ago fascinating.  Years ago on the TV news program 60 Minutes, they interviewed a woman who soaked a T. Rex fossil in acid, and the fossilized rock turned into some fleshy/flexible substance where blood vessels could be found!  Initially paleontologists couldn't believe this was possible, though the evidence was there!  Young earth creationists argued that there was no way the fossil was ~65 million years old.  I'm into dinosaur stuff more than most normal people.  There's lots of artwork that looks like dinosaurs that is only thousands of years old.  Here is the link to the 60 Minutes segment (no religion is mentioned):

E_E,
Your recent review was so kind, I thought I would review you again: the lyrics just before the guitar solo at ~3:10, and the guitar solo gave me goose-bumps!  There are certain elements of the song that remind me of Pink Floyd, mostly because of the vocals (a compliment).  I wouldn't be surprised if it makes her cry if she likes this style of music.  It kind of choked me up a bit, darn you!   On first listen, a few of the vocals sounded slightly pitchy, but I didn't feel that way on second listen.  Instrumentally, it sounds top notch!  Very well done!    I have no idea who Ed is, but did anything happen with Ed and the landlord, they got married?
E_E,
I'm pretty sure I recognized the song in about 2 seconds.  The guitar arpeggio thing is what I seem to remember.  It sounds good.  The playing is nice & tight.  Oh, the 2009 mix is playing now.  It is a lot less loud, perhaps from compression?   While the new mix is louder, I think I hear the compressors pumping the mix, which I think is the only negative part.  Both mixes have their advantages.  Either way it is a nice song.  Please review my music at this link:

I listened to the first song.  Usually this type of music does not excite me, though I did get goosebumps a few times, so that is a big compliment.  Audio quality is good, and everything sounded pretty real to me.  This would be good background music for a movie or TV show.  Your video was simple, though it has pleasant imagery, and matched the music.  Nice melodies & well played.  Nice job!  Please review my music at this link:

TGU,
Not sure why I was expecting a metal song; I guess that is what is typical on this forum.  Once I got over that surprise, it reminded me of the 80's group Squeeze (a compliment).  Singing is quite good.  Instrumentally, everyone is playing very well.  Very good melodies all around.  Audio quality sounds like vintage 80's; not sure if that was on purpose, though it fits the song.  The video is OK, someone must like Mazda Miatas (I like sporty cars).  Please review my music at this link:

It's good you sent me a heads up (I got an email notification, which surprised me; I don't recall ever getting something like that from a thread that is not mine), because I missed your review, which is very unusual for me; makes me wonder if it was visible for me earlier.  I have a difficult time setting up a new thread where it gives me an email notification when someone replies to my thread on this forum (been that way for at least a year for me).  I spent several minutes just now just trying to get a "Post reply" box in this thread, which is also very unusual.  I booted up Google Chrome again at least once before it worked right, after leaving & coming back to this forum several times.  Not sure if ultimateguitar has been updating their website, it looks a bit different to me.  Anyway, I listened to your song 10 minutes ago, and now I can't get it to play again (not unusual for me with soundcloud).  From what I remember, it sounds quite pleasant, and the audio quality is quite good.  For me the song got better after the intro.  Drums sounded nice.  From what I remember, you said my drums sounded robotic, though most of the drum patterns were stock toontrack drum patterns played by a real life drummer.  I hope this forum does not stay buggy for me.  By the way, are you from a particular state or country?
Jake,
Haven't seen you around here lately!  Your lead guitar is quite good, as usual.  On the first half of the song, the quick-picking on the rhythm guitar kind of steps on the lead guitar quick-picking though; my only complaint.  Please review my music at this link:

Mr. RabidBadger,
I dig the guitar riffs.  The drums fit the song.  The first vocals kind of remind me of music from Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album (not a bad thing). The subsequent vocals sound more creepy, which fits the vibe of the song.  I am glad there is the combination of creepy and less creepy vocals.  Audio quality is good.  I don't detect any timing issues.  Well done.  Please review my music at this thread:

Thank you for the review, I appreciate it!  I can't say I listen to much doom music (typically too gloomy for me), though I still found this entertaining.  Strangely enough, your vocals remind me more of Gary Numan (a compliment) than Neil Young on this song.  Perhaps none was intended, though because it is a lungfruit song, I felt some elements of humor in the song; at least for me.  Though I've had friends occasionally laugh at my songs, even though the song was not intended to be humorous.  The quirky-ness of my song made them laugh.  Your lead guitar was so heavy (feel free to elaborate how you did it), it made the turntable turn up-side-down and violate all known laws of physics.  No timing issues. The audio sound fits the vibe of the song.  I would put a smiling face, but how can I for a doom song (wink wink)?  Well done, even if I can't detect much melodic similarity of commonly known versions of 'The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia'; except most of the lyrics are the same (I just listened to the Reba McEntire version on the youtube).  Maybe you can get Reba to sing background vocals on your recording (ha ha). 
I put a new song in my music website called "We Need Jason Bourne".  Please tell me how you like the song and how it can be improved (and I promise to return the favor; leave me a link). The song is at the top of this link:

Thank you for listening again and commenting!  For "The Time Is Right To": the drums and all of the guitar amp modelling and beat-sync effects & panning came from a Roger Linn (he made the first digital drum machine) Design AdrenaLinn 2.  The electric bass was all slapped by me, and not a sampled instrument.
lungfruit,
I'm pretty sure I have heard this before; I will assume you made some changes, but I can't say I honestly recognize the changes if you did.  Perhaps if I heard the old version, and then this new version, I would hear the difference.  I will review this as if I have never heard it before.  Your vocals, guitar, harmonica, and banjo (I forget the name of your banjo-like instrument) sound very similar to Neil Young, so that is a good thing.  The keyboards (?) sound fine.  There are no timing issues, and the instruments are well played.   The beach sound effects are pleasant.  The song is a clever mash-up of 2 known songs!  I will give you the option of reviewing the other song on my August 23rd thread or waiting for my future September 23rd thread, I know you'll be good for it.    
Bleed Away,
Thank you for the recent review.  Now reviewing "The Only One": this song is rather trippy.  The singing is good; I like the vocals more than the synths, but the synths are OK.  The main synth sound is interesting, but a bit repetitive for me.  The drums are fine.  The song's melodies are good.  I read your lyrics; your mention of the Holy Ghost caught my attention.  If you are spiritually inclined, feel free to send me a private message.  If you review the other song on this thread, we will be "even Steven":

Not that I have a record deal, though from what I read, you typically won't get a record deal until the record company sees that you have a following, which typically means you have a lot of people at your live shows, assuming you have any.  Record labels are typically in business to make money, and how good the music sounds is often secondary.  It seems many of the big acts know how to get publicity, like Kanye (who I think is, as Obama says, a jackass).  Is it a coincidence Taylor Swift is often dating someone famous?  I think not.  Then, even if you get a record deal, it does not mean you will be rich; it is still a 1 in 10,000 chance.  So you get a record deal.  Then they say OK, you will make ~20 cents on every song of yours someone downloads, and most people will download it for free illegally.  Unless you are selling a lot, you will be making very little money, and probably have to pay for many or most of your expenses.  I met a guy with a record deal: he still had a retail job at the mall because he wasn't selling much music.  I've had 20 songs get radio play, and I have made zero money with my original songs.
skylinesofchaos20,
Thank you for the reviews, I really appreciate it!  Now your song: this is all tastefully done!  The impressive (especially the faster bits) lead guitar reminds me of Satriani/Steve Vai.  Other than some occasional amp/pick-up hum/buzz (not sure if a noise gate would help), the lead guitar tone is very nice; I like the sustain.  The backing tracks support the lead guitar nicely also.  Nice tune!

Test #1: I like the rhythm guitar riffs.  Some of the playing could be little tighter timing-wise.  Audio quality is pretty good.  Lead guitar is OK.  Some good vocals would help.

Audio quality sounds good to me.  I like all of the guitar parts.  In the beginning of the song, and other similar places, the rhythm of the electric bass seems odd (for the song) to me, though it seemed less odd when heard again later in the song, and when I listened for a second time.  Overall the song is pleasant.  If you have owned Superior Drummer 2 before, have you found SD3 is a significant improvement?  Please review my music at this link:

You'll get more replies if you state you will C4C (critique for critique), and actually follow through on that; it may take months before you develop a reputation of reviewing other people's music.  "il show them": it started out well, then I thought two of the guitars sounded dissonant with one another at less than 1 minute.  Then I tried "former friends":  sounds pretty good, though it needs some vocals.  Audio quality is pretty good.  Part of the problem is there are literally thousands of people posting instrumental guitar music on the internet and it is hard to stand out.  The vast majority of music that gets radio play and that actually sells has vocals.  If you enjoy writing instrumentals, keep at it, though don't expect to be a rock star.   When I was single, I worked with several female singers, and most of them looked good; I got my first serious girlfriend that way.  Perhaps you can return the favor and review my music at this link:

It sounds extremely repetitive during the verse, and elsewhere without vocals, but you already knew that.  You have some good guitar riffs in there, and I like the way the song ends ala-Nirvana.  Since I'm not allowed to talk about the audio quality, there is not much else to discuss.  If you know you'll never have vocals on the song, you need more riffs, or lead guitar if you want to hold people's interest.  Just being honest.  Please review my music at this link:
