It's a desperate need of approval.
I'm not sure about that considering he posts it everywhere and never seems fazed by the feedback. I think that they think they're pretty good and by posting it everywhere the masses will catch on.

Yeah, that’s another possibility. Maybe he’s trying to rack up some plays on YouTube (I think one of his songs has over 1,000 views.) Not sure why bother. It’s not as if he’s getting any money or anything out of it. The only 5 likes he gets per song are his bandmembers.

Yeah, in a different time I'd ban him. But it's fun to read the creative ways in which people destroy his music. If it seemed to matter to him I wouldn't enjoy it.

I'm feeling in a more positive mood than usual today. So here's something:

Your songs in general (including this one) are not only very poorly recorded and composed, but lack anything remotely attractive. As long as your songs lack a hook, a mood, 'colour'... they will not work. Your songs are completely forgettable, however decent your musicians might be. The singer is almost atrocious, by the way. Get rid of him.

I'm telling you all this from experience. I too had a band, recorded things with them, played gigs, etc. And we sucked donkey balls, but couldn't see it then. So I and several other people here, who are or were musicians, are telling you that all of your current repertoire is terrible. If anyone is congratulating you, they don't mean it. I'd bet that nobody, apart from the band members and the people who have to endure your rehearsals, would remember anything about your songs after listening to them. 100% of people in the real world would immediately skip your song if it appeared on the radio.

You can be congratulated on your persistence, your desire to keep writing and to improve your writing, and the improved quality of your recordings. But rest assured that the final product (i.e., your 'songs') wouldn't qualify for a shitty version of a shitty demo. They are a load of old arse. From 1 to 10, 1 being a monkey sitting on a piano and 10 being a Pink Floyd + The Beatles supergroup in 1967, your band is on a 2. So keep pushing forward, keep practicing, keep writing these pieces of rubbish and soon you'll get to a 3. But it's just as important that you don't pretend you're at a 4.

:bigrin:
Hey Larry. How are you man? Sorry for the late reply.

Thank you for taking the time to make such a detailed review. I appreciate your honesty. It doesn't really matter if you like it or not. Right now, that's the best we can do.

So, there it is: “it doesn’t matter.”

You forgot to tell him how you are, and how you forgive him for the lateness of his reply! Jeez, Larry, where are your manners! :bday:

Don't get me wrong, Larry. I really appreciate what you say. What I meant was for us, right now, the most important thing is that you guys give us a chance and listen our songs. Maybe someday we get it right.
