Acoustic Guitar recorded on garage band by Sam Boux, makes me think of a gray summer sky with rain falling down in the end of the afternoon, kind of like here today.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A song that tells a story

First time listen, this will cure any bad mood.
In my head, it tells a story.
From the start, it says "It's raining... Again...", continuing with nothing you really can do about that. This gets more obvious at 01:25 when the tapping starts.
It changes to a lighter tone at 01:55 giving a feeling of being able to enjoy a grey rainy day.
If a person is sad, the beat change at 03:30 will sure help the person get in a better mood. It felt sort of like "So what... Just enjoy the day!"

Any song which can tell a story is a great song in my book.
I am going to give it 9/10. The subtraction is only due to the parts SFaPiL2 commented which felt a little "off".

Keep up the great job!

Great potential as a musician, the rain kinda suited the song, and near the 3 and a half minute margin where you couldn't hear the rain as much and the song sounded a bit more cheerful really caught me.

Rainy Mood!

Yeah, I got that. I'm starting to value your music better, it seems to give positive energy in my everday life. O_o Wish I could give you more of a review, but something in me keeps saying that every detail in your song was planned and perfect (even if I know it was all played live).

Makes me think I'm under some sort of shaded bench waiting for a ride home because fo the rain, and I can't help but look at the sky then decided to walk instead to ride. (your music, does make me think a lot XD)

Btw, I tried listening to "Sleep" as I went to sleep, it works. XD haha!

Boux responds:

your comment makes me smile, im glad you can relate to my music this much, it is the purpose of my music to make people think. Thanks, and glad it work, i still think ''sleep'' is a bit played to fast though, didnt work for me.

This is my fav of yours so far...

Theres something better about this tune than all the others... Its more cheerful than the oters and yet its also more sad at times. This is what i like about instrumental song. You can combine moods. Its truly amazing. Good Job, 10/10 5/5

Boux responds:

yeah youre right i guess its a bit more cheerful than usual, thanks again for your word.

Since you've got so much potential...

...I think I'll be a bit more of a critic today. Don't get me wrong, I'm doing it just to be helpful. If I made a mistake, diss me all you like ^o^.

Ok, here goes:

I wasn't too sure whether that static-sound in the background was rainfall or not, but it didn't sound too good (it wasn't well defined). It also seems to pan alot, which made me a bit distracted from 0:05-0:58.

The note at 0:49 didn't sound too well (it seems as if you "stumbled" at that point).

The pause at 1:04 is one second off. It starts three beats after the previous melody ends. It almost seems as if you decided to play a different song.

It seems like you stumbled again from 1:17-1:19. I might be terribly wrong, though.

From 2:58-3:00 there's something strange going on after one of the ghost notes. Perhaps you missed a ghost note?

3:08-3:11 didn't sound too perfect.

...I think that's it for the -ve criticism.

The praises ^__^:

The overall song is fantastic (not a surprise). The "autumn-mood" you cast in your songs is always there, but this time it's more of an "end-of-summer-rain". Very nice.

3:29 was perfectly on-beat

4:14 had some amazing arpeggios.

The mood is very solitary and gloomy and is similar to a Goo Goo Dolls style song from 3:30-end (reminds me a bit of "Iris" and "Name" combined), which I love ^_^.

All those little arpeggios, slides and string bends were some really good ear-candy for me. Kudos.

Thanks once more with your contributions. They're much appreciated.

8/10 <------------ saving the 9's and 10's for your future submittions ^__^

Boux responds:

Well on the stumbles you mentionned, it all depends on who you ask, my tunes are all played live so you wont get a perfect studio quality, i think the fact its not perfect adds to the fact that it can be played by a human being and not a damn machines :D
On that, its still a freakin awesome review, you really took the time and you're honest about it wich is great.
Thanks again!, ill keep you updated.
