WIP of an acoustic tune

As requested here are the lyrics (note: As with all my other WIP songs the lyrics are somewhat ad-libbed, with no real thought behind them (sometimes they don't make a word of sense heh). I like to wait a while and take my time when writing the final lyrics for a song)

Don't know where we're gonna be
I Guess now I'll get a lie for free
I'll take a walk for a while if I like

Cos we're Free
As a bird
Can't you see?
Haven't you heard?

This one he has no fun
He lives in a world without a sun
He's got no symphony
Seems like a big shame to me
A big shame to me

im gonna save you all the ''drummer problems'' comments because im pretty sure you have heard enough of them. I do think I understood what you were going for. It sounds like (the drums) videotape by radiohead, but that is only because of the drums and guitars being completely off-beat from each other.

I dont know if you might take offense to this, but this song has the same chord progression (vocals and guitars) as ''Half the world Away" by Oasis. But that was the reason I enjoyed it, (brought back some sweet Oasis memories).

So yeah, I am looking forward for you to upload a different version of this song.

Haha, yea, I've already destroyed the drum audio file! ;)

As for Oasis, they are (or were) one of my favourite bands and, like others, have obviously influenced me, which seems to come out in this song the most. It does sound similar to Half the Word Away (or atleast the verse does) I'll give you that, but the chords are different (I think the only chord used on each song in the same place is the first chord - C). The instruments used and the rhythm probably make it sound more similar than it technically is?. I'm glad that it reminds of an awesome song tho (One of my favourite Oasis songs) :)

I appreciate the review. Cheers

Drummer let you down

Not a bad track, but the drummer needs lessons, because that freestyle bollocks in the background kept no beat to the rest of you. If he's going to do that, you guys need to start with it and let the drummer call the shots and stick with it, as opposed to telling him to follow you and watching him go more abstract than Pablo Picasso.

I think that there is a sitiation where the guitar, vocals and keyboards is a brilliant combination, sort of how the Pet Shop boys could have been if they'd have had the talent.

Good lyrics, more practice required to get the band unity in it and finally consider getting a bassist, just to add more impetus to the track.

StickyRemnant responds:

Haha, the drums are done by me on this one, I guess I should stick to guitar! I had something in mind similar to "There Goes The Fear" by the Doves" I think it'd work in theory but Im not the best on drums.

As for bass, there is a bass there. I think I must need some monitors because people keep saying that they can never hear the basslines in my tracks - probably due to me mastering with headphones (which are pretty bassy)

I'll redo the drums. Cheers for the review

Great potential

I agree with TheIncredibleD, the drums should start sooner. It's only after over 1 minute before they start and when they do they sound strangely off, as if they where playing a different rhythm than the guitar. Or maybe it sounds so strange because the snare drum doesn't really go along that well with the guitar in this song. A little more mastering could get rid of this problem, though.

Anyway, on to the good things: The guitar sounds really nice. The rhythm is good and the melody is very catchy.
When the song started I had a feeling that I heard this before, but maybe that's just because your voice reminds me of the singer of Stereophonics.

Well, speaking of the voice, it sounds awesome and fits very well together with the guitar.
It would be nice if you could post the lyrics in the author comments, as they are a bit hard to make out for me.

Overall this song has very great potential so you should try to work out the problems with the drums and master the song a bit better. :)

StickyRemnant responds:

Lyrics posted. And consider the drums destroyed ;)

Sounding similar to Kelly Jones is a complement to me, thanks. I'm glad people seem to like my vocals, it's quite surprising as I've never considered myself any kind of singer. Most, if not all of my tracks, are just sung by me for the purposes of a demonstration for the rest of the band (which is being put together again after quite a few years) since I am the main songwriter atm. I may 'officially' sing some of the acoustic songs tho now

Thanks again for the review :)

Not bad

Needs a bit of brushing up... okay, a LOT of brushing up. Its a bit sloppy. Also, the drums should come in sooner. I think it would sond good if they came in at 0:26 with a filler, the drums starting proper at 0:28. But I can see (or hear?) that you've got a decent song here. Its gonna be good. Oh, and I like your singing voice, too. Its quite distinctive, gives the song a unique feel.

StickyRemnant responds:

Cheers for he feedback, I'll give the earlier drums a bash when I revisit this. Gotta finish off the lyrics (for this and a whole bunch of other songs) yet.
