We have reviewed your track,
"The man in the hat."
These things were awesome:
The track starts off with warm and resonant acoustic guitars that really set the tone of the track. The bass sounds deep and warm, the drums lend a chill, rock-style beat. The synth violin also adds a nice melody and detail.
The vocals are cleanly recorded and well mixed with the track in a balanced way. The vocal style suits the music style very well, with a folky and down-to-earth vibe. "Have myself a smoke, life can be a joke. funny how it turns, funny how it burns" is a nice line that is cleverly rhymed and captures a certain symbolic sadness and existential condition. "The man in the hat, he says he knows where I'm at" is a catchy and memorable hook. The entire song creates a great image: the train station, smoking a cigarette, a mysterious figure with a hat, and the bluesy music.
This could take you to the next level:
Overall, the song is extremely well crafted and sounds very polished and resolved. There is no specific feedback for improvement.
We thought it was an overall solid release and it is definitely ready to be played on the airwaves.

We have reviewed your track, "Let the cold wind blow."
These things were awesome:
The vibes on this record are very refreshing. Sometimes it does feel good to just sit back and take all of the feelings in and just surrender to the universe. The guitars on this song are very soothing and they allow your audience to sit back and reflect on life. You are speaking directly from your soul and manifesting the warm air into your life. The days don't always have to be dark and cold, at any moment you can close your eyes and decide you are living in paradise. Your voice is awesome, and this record sounds like it came out 50 years ago. You are a true rocker, and we are sure that your concerts are nothing short of greatness. Thank you for giving us this feeling of joy and allowing anybody listening to take a second to live in the moment and feel alive. We will forever support you here at Radio Play Today and we are excited to hear what you have for us in store next.
