    Busy Song Revisited

    Ok, I actually sent the song to Grammy winning producer Rick Iantasco and he had a few suggestions. I implemented a few to make the song NOT so busy and I think it sounds pretty good now. Please give a listen and comment if you would. Glen, this is the one you wanted to hear in its entirety so here's your chance!

    And as always, the incredible Rami on drums.

    I like the tempo but I don't like the beat. I give it a 6, Dick...

    Thumbs up

    Nice job man. My only complaint, if you will, is the vox. They seem a bit boxy. They don't seem to have the depth that I think your voice should have. Did you eq them pretty heavily? I think you did a good job singing this, so give the vox some punch. Not louder, just a small amount more depth. Not highs, but some mids.

    But all in all, nice job man. You cleaned it up pretty nicely.

    Thanks Dog! I'll give that a listen and see if I can hear what you are hearing. I don't think I had any EQ on it at all but after 12 and a 40 my memory is not so, uh... ummm... what were we talking about?

    I'll report more tomorrow. Thanks again Dog!

    Cool man....just get a bit of oommpphhh on the vocals. A little low boost might do just fine.

    the song and vocals sound like a springsteen clone.

    nice playing and production though.

    Only 1 complaint & it's a matter of personal preference - I don't like the guitar tag line. Or rather, I don't like tag lines- even Layla bugs me a little. I'd have been happier with a variations on the melody being played in their stead. The harmony at 3.08 seems to come in over the top of the main vocal in an odd way - mind you I'm using h/phones.
    Otherwise a really prof job. Cheers

    Thanks rayC! I'm planning on recutting the background vox. They were just an experiment and I wasn't happy with the performance.

    Real cool song, a serious springsteen vibe going. I like Cool chorus and sounds there, I like the "busy"ness there.
    Production sounds great. The only thing I hear is that the vocals sound a little disconnected from the music during the verses. If that makes sense... you could try adjusting the EQ or verb to try to blend them more.
    Good stuff
