I really like the jingly things at the beginning. The synth playing the chords sounds real nice. The drums work well with the track. I'm not an expert on rap, so I don't know how to critique your rapping. I can say it's definitely NOT buried. Good mixing. By "A Horse With No Name" do you mean the song by America? I never heard it; I just googled it and it came up. Might be interesting to listen to. Nice work - cheers!
Thanks for checking this out!
I'm glad you like the production. And about the rapping, I agree with others, that I could use work. So I went ahead and re-recorded this (and the rest of my songs). I'll be re-uploading them over the weekend, for sure. I find them to be an improvement. And yes, that's the song I was referring to. I thought it was a good song, and I liked the lyrics, so I kinda used some lines in my verse. It's a nice song, I think you might like it.
Thanks for the review!
Cool. I like the laid back style of your voice, but you almost sound like you're holding back or changing your voice or something. I can clearly hear everything you say so don't get me wrong when I tell you to speak UP! Your flow is nice I just need to hear that ENERGY!
Thank you for your review!
It's funny that you say that. On another song, a reviewer mentioned that there seemed to be a lack of enthusiasm in my vocals, so while recording this song, I tried to give my vocals a little more 'umph'... But I guess I really didn't do much, huh? =\... Are the vocals not good enough the way they are? Would more energy take away that "laid back" feel? (If you can answer, I'd be grateful, but you don't got to if you don't want to).
However, I can assure you that I don't change my voice when I record, and I don't hold back, either (at least, it doesn't sound/feel that way to me).
I appreciate you taking the time to review, and I'll try my best to bring in more energy on my next song. Thanks!
