Two new songs for everyone to have a listen to......any pointers/criticisms always welcome!

Couldn't get them to load onto my song area here I'm afraid so go to

www.myspace.com/nickwatsonmusic and have listen to any of the four there, but especially:

"Palm of Your Hand"

kinda an experimental piece playing with fx on the drum track....I think the vocals and lyrics still need a bit of work!

"Taking Me Over"

just a song a felt like writing!

Hope your all well,
Cheers

Hey, I feel like there is no back/forth space in the mix, like everything is right there in your face (try some subtle reverb on some of the parts). Other than that, I really like this song! oops I'm talking about palm of your hand. electrig geetar solo is actually back a little bit and sounds great. Man, I really like this song. good job.

Taking me over: I'd say the hat stands out cuz it's panned too far left and could use some light verb on it to set it back a bit, but otherwise it sounds good. Not as big a fan of it as palm, but its still a good song.

good work feller.

I kind of agree with coolo on both tunes. Palm was great though the way you used some of the changes. I agree as well the guitar in most parts seems way far behind the rest of the instruments in the song. Although that may well be the effect you are looking for, so I won't be too critical on that at all. It does sound quite good though. But I would take a look for sure at giving teach instrument its own space. Otherwise I really liked the tune for sure. And I'm honestly not a huge pop sound fan, but you have some killer hooks in there and it keeps a very good edge to it.

Taking me over was a killer soft piece. Loved the voice on that, it fit very well. Although I will agree that that hat is too far to the left and kind of throws the feel of the song off a bit. Move that a bit more toward the center and you have a killer sounding tune on your hands. I really liked this one for sure, nice feel to it for sure.

Nicely done stuff nick for sure.

Good tune.........but yeah change the slower drum parts...I'm no drummer but I ain't feeling it...

I like the vocals and i think the acoustic could have a better sound

I really like the tune...

My suggestion...FINISH the tune...save your $$$ and HIRE a producer in this genre....You will thank me later
