this is a good album, that you have released there. Up front I'd like to get
the more unwelcome part of my e-mail out of the way in saying, that this is
not my cup of tea, mostly. I do like "what makes you believe", the rest just
doesn't really talk to me musically.
that said, it is a fantastic production! It's clear and clean and has punch.
Everything is transparent. As far as I am concerned the only criticism could
be in the real of preferences and idiological approaches to production. I love
the drumkit. Even I wouldn't have tortured the snare drum further to achieve a
sound completely to my liking. It all fits together so neatly! If I said, that
you could put this on a radiostation and no one would notice, would you
understand this as a compliment in terms of production and playing? It would
be meant as such.
It's good to hear, that you don't neglect your own language. I always like
hearing perfectly ordinary and global genres of music with lyrics in languages
other than English and German.
Musically I must say, that you have a good and versatile voice. It is you
singing? I'm pretty sure, but... :-) The slight distortion on the vocals in
"Been to the Gates" really helps the song along. Though as such processing
goes, I think it's rather subtle. It almost gives it a sixties feel in the
voice, not in the music. This raw edge, this crackle in the voice.
As I said, both musically and in terms of production, it is very well
performed. straight forward and spot on! Perhaps it's good for us, that you
are unknown, because I've heard people making a nice bit of money with
approximately similar music. that way we can all enjoy it for free and share
it around, pass the links on.
Warm regards and thanks
