Hey Jasson! Thank you so much for your review of In Fantasies!!!
Best wishes, Natalee.
Greetings from your neighbors in Maine, and thank you for the 5 stars on "Walks With Grace"! :)
Thanks for the 5 stars on "Broken Down and Worn"! :)
Thank you for your review of my song DarkEpicTheatrical. I have a couple of questions about your review. Could we have a chat, perhaps?
You have some beautiful tracks there. Refreshing and inspiring.
Thanks for the fantastic review of Sleep!
A shout-out from Maine to Dublin: thanks for the 5 star rating of "Line in the Sand"! Stay well -- Jay Mancine
I want you to know, that after taking a long break from listening to the song I recorded which you reviewed, I agree with you completely. The mix was a little restrained and could have had more punch. Not sure if that means I will ever go back and rework it, but you were absolutely right.
Thank you so much for the kind words!
gave it well deserved 5 stars also.
Just saw that, thanks again! Much appreciated :)
Thank you very much for your review of 'Keep Me Warm'. Glad you like the song!. David.
Thanks so much for the outstanding review of That's One Thing (You Don't Understand About Me)! That song was originally written in 1971, and I was determined to one day get it recorded. I guess 48 years was a long enough wait.
Just got our 4th opportunity selection here on Broadjam! Thanks for all the support, critiques and comments in the reviews... we truly appreciate them!
Hi,. Thanks for a kind and constructive review of Empire. Always good to receive constructive suggestions and comments. Much appreciated. Bob
Thanks, for taking the time to review my song. I appreciate the feedback. I wasn't sure if you could tell by what you wrote in the review but I didn't exactly write that song, I poetically translated it from the classical piece "O fortuna" that is used in so many movies and whatnot. (I found the existing translations lacking) I did what I could with limited ability and anxiety about doing vocals, so no worries I am not going to curse you out for not giving me 5's across the board. LOL
Thanks, David, for the kind review and constructive, helpful critique of "Line in the Sand"! This type of feedback from fellow artists is invaluable, and I thank you for taking the time to listen to, consider and comment on the song and its structure in such a specific and supportive, relatable way.
No problem Jason.
Thank you for a wonderfully thorough review and critique of "Walks with Grace". This is EXACTLY why we are here on Broadjam. Thank you for taking the time to be so specific, and for your great suggestions! We truly appreciate it, and incorporate all these great reviews into the way we approach remixes, as well as crafting new songs.
By the way, I recognized your name... I had the pleasure of getting your song "Are You There?" as a "random" review a few weeks ago, and it really moved me. Such a hauntingly beautiful song.
Thanks very much Jason. It was my pleasure. And thank you for your kind words about "Are you There." With most of my music I intentionally keep it as genuine as I can, because that's what moves me personally. I try to capture real moments and display them in a final recording. Your words made me feel supported in that goal.
Hey Douglas, nice to connect with you here and thanks for the great review of "In Every Way"! Look forward to listening to your songs soon! Best regards, Jason Mancine
Thanks, as always, Bob for another well-thought out and constructive review of "Song of the People". As you now know, my mixing philosophy is certainly non-standard, as is our skip-the-hook philosophy. Haha :) So I understand your comments with regard to both. That said, this particular mix from last Fall was selected for several sync/placement opps on first glance elsewhere before it landed in an exclusive publishing deal on its only submission here a few weeks ago.
I tend to look at songs as living things that are never really "finished"... and I actually agree with a drier, more up-front vocal approach. But I don't think it would have stood a chance to have been picked up mixed that way. A weird business we are in. :)
Always nice to hear from you!
That's AWESOME, Jason - congrats! Yeah, reviews are all subjective anyway as a matter of personal taste. The big-picture sound is still great whether or not I have any varying opinions on the mix.
Thanks, Bob. We really appreciate all the feedback and critique... this platform has been a breath of fresh air, and so helpful. Thank you for taking the time to so thoughtfully comment on our songs.
Hi, thanks for the constructive review of "When Ignorance was Bliss"! There is actually no MIDI programming whatsover in the song...all me playing instruments.. But I do see your point about that "feel" to the song, and appreciate the time you took to listen and comment! Best regards Jason Mancine
Thanks for your review of "Beseme Mucho" from the cover can in the Six Pack
Hello and welcome to Broadjam. Thanks for the review of my Swamp song. Mrs Kate
I just reviewed and picked up "Prison" on ITunes - another great job! If you're ever bored and looking for music (someone who even has similarities to your band), check out Mystery. Every album is cool and they're known for deeply-intricate songs. Maybe Dear Someone or Destiny to get you started, but you can't make a mistake. It's all good.
Thanks once again, Bob for a great review of Prison. I am constantly listening to music to keep myself from getting too stuck in the sound of my own space/setup, so will definitely add Mystery to my list!
Just FYI, after hearing and reviewing Walks with Grace, I went to ITunes and bought it. Really excellent. Your work reminds me of an obscure (But GREAT) Swedish prog rock band, Karmakanic. If you don't know them, check out their stuff. For some reason Broadjam won't let me post a link, but just type in the band name, youtube and the song title, and the video comes up. Play on 11.
I found it... holy smokes! Really great track. Thanks for sharing, I am going to go down the YouTube rabbit hole and take in some more of their stuff!
Yeah, I hosted a radio show called "Obscurities" a while back, and found a whole bunch of Swedish and Danish bands that I loved. Some hard-rockers from there as well.
Congrats on your success with your song "Song of the People". You have an awesome sound and
great quality music!
Thanks for another thoughtful review, this time for "Spiraling Out of Control". I appreciate your insights!
Thanks, Jeana! We love your sound and style and wish you continued success! Any film/TV project would be enhanced by your complex and tasteful compositions.
Thanks, Jason! I wish you all the best for your future projects. I'm sure there will be many more placements coming your way! Your band's sound is at the top of the pack.
Jason. These words are golden in "Line"! It's exactly what we need to hear right now! Bravo! Catnip=+=
Thanks, much appreciated... hope this song can find its way to at least a few folks who need to hear it!
Hi Jason! Thanks for the great review of "Who Owns The Sun!" Rock On! Catnio=+=
Thanks for the great review, of When Ignorance was Bliss, Bob. This was my first "quarantine" production when I set up my studio, and I plan to revisit it soon, so I appreciate your constructive feedback. It definitely needs something to change it up more than that little saxaphone break in the middle... gonna try a few things out soon :)
Overall it's got a great retro sound though and for "home work" it's really well done.
Thanks you once again for a great review! What About My Reward was also written around 1972-73, just never had the money to record until retirement.
Thanks for the excellent review of Leave Ohio Behind. As a retired guy (now 69) it was all the money I had to get in and self-produce this, doing all the backup vocals myself. My band used to play this back in the mid-80s, written originally in 1973. Better late than never!
It certainly has stood the test of time, Bob! I really enjoyed it. Best regards, Jason Mancine
Man thanks for the review of "Aki - Night." I know my biggest challenge is putting together solid recordings, since I do everything by myuself and I'm not a perfectionist lol. I've had some pretty useless reviews from people who don't get my stuff and just focus on technical flaws, but we all have to learn to not let that get to us. So it is nice to hear from someone who gets it! Keep doing what you do too and like they say, don't let the bastards get you down!
Thanks for your kind review of "After the Storm". I appreciate the input!
I am so sorry the actual #'s did not come with it. I seem to be struggling to make the broadjam website actually work. I had ya down for a 39/40 rating. That 1 point deduction can be the question of the week. :)
You have a mesmerizing command of melody and ambience that I really hope succeeds in this strange new music-biz world.
But beyond the music-biz part, I hope you are proud of your works... everything I have heard from you here has been fantastic, well-conceived and moving. You have a rare sensibility for "connective" melody and emotive expression with such few instruments.
I hope it is appreciated commercially, and if it isn't -- I hope you draw some satisfaction/comfort from us fellow composers who are straight-up telling you this is great, and it should be picked up for a deal!
Hi Jason--no worries on the #'s, I appreciate the comments. Thank you so much for the compliment and encouragement! I just listened to your "Lost In A Maze". Such a great sound, quality all-around, 5-stars. Your band can compete with anyone out there!
All The Best,
