It has comfort food quality
I really like this tune. When I say it has comfort food quality, I mean it as very much of a compliment. I'm a bit older so it reminds me of some great old school rock. It has a great guitar, a nice solid groove, in-the-pocket bass, and the vocals are great. The mix could be a little better for my tastes. A tiny bit too raw.

I like the originality of your work. Strong message and creativity is a big plus. Good production, I can hear some good vocals to this, good job on the final mix-down. I can tell you have your heart and soul into what you do. Keep on pushing and never give up or get distracted in pursuing the dream of making it. I like the instrumental blend of sounds with some vocals and the production on the track is good. Keep up the great work! Peace!!!

Review of You Own Your Life by Anbaric
This is different than all of the other songs I've heard by Anbaric. Nice sound and production. Good instrumentation and vocals. The song is much closer to FM rock than hard rock or metal IMO.

A True Original
Honesty it’s rare that I listen to a song repeatedly.. Until this one. It’s possible to fake Authenticities or Good Songwriting formula. This is effortless in its presentation, production and performance. There’s something so chilled back about the vocals and guitar , yet They are flawless. I wish I could see it live and hope Your on YouTube. It’s Brilliant and I can’t wait to hear more. Grand Blessings and Success to You. Respectfully- Distant Sun Rising

Hey ANBARIC! Great song, good job. This has a catching riff and good steady beat. The guitar work is solid with great solos. The mix could be adjusted, one of the guitars is coming out a little strong, but us guitarists like that lol. Don't push me around, good theme, you own your life. Perhaps this song could be called Don't Push Me Around, that line comes out strong than You Own Your Life which comes out at the end of Don't Push Me Around. But the song writer probably started with the thought of You Own Your Life and built the rest around it. Good percussion, good vocals, I think this song has a lot of potential.

Nice production. Nice flow to the song. Vocals are pretty clear and sound great. Catchy tune. Love the guitar riff. Sounds like these guys know what they are doing when they write and record a song. Guitar solo soaringly efficient. I did think the song was going to end on a more aggressive note however.

Different. I immediately thought of the band Helloween. The vocals are reminiscent of their style. That is a very good thing! Although the guitar here is a bit loud in the mix for my taste. No harm no foul. I can see why the guitarist is in the spotlight, rightly so. This is made for a movie or tv spot. Decent production, not that it really matters. Some of the crappiest bands have awesome production. I would rather hear good honest music, who cares how many hours they were at the million dollar an hour studio? This is good. Very radio friendly.

I think this track is some great work. I like the rhythm section. The bass drums and guitar or Will together. The leads does a great job harmonizing the song. The keyboards Keeps the melody going. The singer does a great job With the vocals in it straight to the point.The production quality is great. I gave this song a four out of four. Only thing I had a problem with but I feel better about now is when I first heard the main riff it reminded me of a Papa Roach song called Blood Brothers. I compared the two and listened there’s a similarity but the difference in picking styles,tempo,& structure And the end of the comparison it’s different.

Good hot snare sound, the vocals could be a little more up front, because they are right in pocket. Maybe the tune just needs to get a good mastering. But it's enjoyable regardless. The harmonies give it a good edge, and there's good dynaics kicked in, especially around the guitar solo Great work guys. Good fade at the end. Best of luck and keep rocking!

That’s real rock
The music had great sounds and tones that really grabbed my attention. Vocals were on point and complimented the music and style. I really enjoyed it a lot. Just wanted to give you a little feedback didn’t have anything negative to say about it at all. Thanks for your time

Here’s a really good song that has a lot of energy and swag. Great rhythm section really punchy drum sound. The whole arrangement and production is way up there in the mix. Love the heavy guitar spuds almost what Iron Maiden does as well as other harmonies. Very nice hook and vocals are spot on. I really like this track and I hope nothing but the best to the band. I know how hard it is to break out these days,but plugging away is the way to go.

You Own Your Life - ANBARIC
If you are looking for melodic, well-recorded and mixed hard rock - you just found it! Kimmo Komulainen and his ANBARIC know how to compose an interesting song. Short introductory drums and a good main riff comes in as always. I think that the lyrical layer is very important in this composition. I like Kimmo's guitar solos, there are not so many notes, each sound is well thought out. "You Own Your Life" - reminds ANBARIC and they are right! Greetings, Maciej ATRAPA
metal hard con un grande cantante per il genere che non ha niente da invidiare alle grandi star del rock gruppo potente e trascinante con un bel tiro e bei duetti vocali questi ci sanno fare ragazzi e meriterebbero di più' di vecchie mummie che vediamo in giro. pezzo bello e originale quindi qui non manca niente perché' sono un grande gruppo e spero per loro che trovino la strada giusta

A simple, rhythmic song performed very cleanly. A good mix of instruments, I would have preferred the bass to be more prominent. A good solo passage, technical and to the point. The voice is what is needed for this style of rock in conclusion a song relaxing to repeat when you want to listen to music. So keep it up doing good music and Stay Safe
You own your life
Cool entry, groovy, voice fits in well. Good decrease of dynamic without losing the drive. The chorus is catchy, sticking to the signature lick. So you continue: cool aspect that you keep on developing the signature lick, very conclusive structure. Now with the solo you bring up a contrast, the solo is virtuous without being overwhelming. Dramatic transition into a minimalistic but atmospheric outro. Cool and catchy song, the voice fits in well, greatly developed main lick, variations are full of interesting details, playing skills and production are on the top. Catchy, full of feeling, but not a pop song. I don't see any issues in this one, great work !
You own you life

This is a good track. You are going to get some constructive criticism on this one though. . .The overall melody is somewhat repetitive, now dont get me wrong, the musicianship and vocals are very good, but the song itself, is probably something I would not be cranking in my sportscar cruising down the road. This song also does not fit your current "Genre". Its almost like pop rock, rather than hard rock or metal, but hey, its still performed professionally, its NOT a bad thing. Ive been writing and recording for 35 years, and I'm pretty sure some of the stuff I did a lot of work on, I "shelved" it for a reason. Now all that set aside, it is my opinion that although the overall track is loud and clear, there is some processing or something, causing the vocals to become non understandable. Yes, you can hear the vocal melody, which is fine, BUT, something in there makes the listener unable to understand the words for alot of the track. I listened to it 4 times. Perhaps some of the frequencies with the instruments are slightly drowning them, or perhaps not enough mid range in them, or, if you are panning them too hard left and right that could most definitely be the issue. Take care and once again, good job.
