Encompassing Well Recorded Song
on December 3, 2012
I do like something about the feel of this song that has me re-playing it over and over. No its not a happy song and It does hit pretty deep for me, as I have had friends that have succumb to drug abuse and are no longer with us.
Overall I like the way this was recorded it sounds very natural like you are siting in a coffee house listening to the artist play his guitar while singing in front of you I really like the coffee house vibe the song creates.
This reviewer is about sound. If you have seen some of my other reviews you will note I try and base my music reviews on sound quality not just my feelings about the song, as most concentrate on that only. For me if the sound quality is not top notch then the song for me is a mute point and can't be enjoyed at all.
The overall sound quality is quite good only very slight clipping distortion toward the middle of the song noticeable on good monitors and a well trained ear, not to the average listener. Nice crisp well recorded transparent vocals, good tone to the main guitar, miked so that you hear the natural tones from the body of the guitar as he strums it. Nice clean mastering for the most part providing excellent presence. Can't say that for all MP3's I have purchased, but this one is a definite must purchase in my opin.
One last note I purchased an Altec Lansing Orbit IMT228 portable speaker and this song sounds rather impressive even on that tiny speaker, suggesting that much care was taken when this song was recorded. This means that on just about any system this will sound great from pro monitors to an Ipod or other portable device.
