Anyone want to give a quick review of my rock 'n roll record?

    I don't think I posted this when we released the record, but I'm always interested in what the TB community has to say about music. So here's my record, it was done on a tiny budget, and I'm not crazy about some of the mixes, but I still think it's some good, old fashioned rock 'n roll. Any input is appreciated as we are working on new tunes.

    Streaming is free, and so is the download, if you like what you hear, I'd love for you to dl the album for free and spread the word.

    Thank you both for the input. I have noted to keep the next record continually raw, and include claps! I really do appreciate you taking the time to check it out.
  6. I will give it a listen tonight when I get home and report back to you. I am sure though it will be great :)
  7. I like everything except the anticipated snare hits during the quieter parts. I get that he's trying to add rhythmic interest but to me they make it too herky jerky except in the loudest parts. Dig the old school slide guitar. Is that an SG? I like the vocals on the louder parts but would like to hear a little more melody on the verses. I like the breakdown as well. Overall, performance wise, I give it a B. For an A I would like the song itself to be a little stronger with maybe a hummable chorus. Style wise, it may suffer a bit by trying to serve two masters, deep blues and power rock but like I said, that's just what's keeping it from an A grade. I'm pretty fussy and from me a B is pretty good. I really liked the absence of gimmicky production and the authentic feeling of a rock band working it out.

    for context, I'm 55 and grew up on Humble Pie, Savoy Brown/Foghat, Johhny Winter, Molly Hatchet etc. so the style is one that's near and dear to me.
