Very Good
I love the chorus and the song is very well written, sung
and performed.
I did have a suggestion - I felt like the verses were rushed.
I was wondering if they might have more emotional
impact if the verses were performed more slowly.
You have an expressive, impressive singing voice.

Very Good
Thank you mongo,
Because of the subject matter, my feel was not to linger
on the emotional side,but on the fatherly pride side.

Thanks

A little Rushed
The tempo seemed a little jagged and I found the synth
sound coming out of the left speaker to be discordant and
unpleasant. Your voice is very emotional but at times was
a little hard to understand.

A little Rushed
Hey bronco,
Thanks for the astute comments. I wanted the
vocal timing to sound ad-lib. It's supposed to be
"off-the cuff" just something that happens to a
young soon - to - be father (emotion wise).

Again Thanks
CR

i like your voice, and the song has classic chord structure. but the vocals seem sort of random and improvised, not tight like is usually the case. it is interetsing, but doesn't feel finished to me. like a window to your improvised thoughts.

really nice!
GREAT VOCALS! great lyrics! A little more space in
between some lyrics would let the song breath more and
the words sink tp the listener. Similar to the intro, mybe a
couple more similar instrument measures.
Beautiful job/Downloaded!

Great emotions
I dig the looseness of this track, the swirling live emotional
feel. Excellent feelings coming thru. The only thing is the
synth sound at the end, it is to synthetic for this wonderfully
real track and raw emotion.

Making it up as we go
I caught this song on Tobin's suggestion and love it. The
sense that you are making it up as you are going, making
yourself as well, is so strong. Makes it like you're a genius or
something. Powerful performance.

Great Vocals
Sounds like testimony. I agree with the previous comments, give it to us
lil slower let emotion of the song and your voice last a lil longer.
