ReviewA lovely clean opening introduction an uncomplicated and infused musical welcome. A lovely vocally sympathetic guitar too. Great storytelling, just a little too wordy in a very few places meaning it just becomes a little hurried in those moments but I’m being picky about something very trivial. On the whole a beautiful piece of work which has been mastered amazingly well, really well put together and pleasing to listen to the vocalists gentle tones. I wonder what some female vocals alongside it would have been like, but your voice stands alone really confidently anyway. I really really like it and commend it, hopefully I will get to hear a load more from you. Artey
The Lady of the Books deserves a first and second look...What a wonderfully designed introduction. The acoustic guitar with string accompaniment compliments each other in a balanced manner that sets the tone for a beautiful story to follow. It was mixed well and spaced appropriately. The tempo selection was a good match to the pulse of the story. As we turn our attention to the structure it is easy to see that the songwriter has a good grasp on the important aspects of musical composition and development. The introduction was of proper length, not too long to become awkward or boring and not too short as to not allow time to lay a perfect foundation for a mild breakdown to segue into the vocal contribution. Vocally, the artist is in his own right is flawless. His interpretation of the musical style is spot on. His pitch and pace are in concert with his ability to add clarity to the lyrics. He brings a welcomed honesty in the phrasing and expression of the actual words that make up such a beautifully arranged composition. The hook of the song or the chorus is perfect. It drives home the intent of the title and the compassion that builds each time it revolves around. I equally was pleased to see how you allowed time at the conclusion to allow the well chosen chord / arpeggio selection to bring things to a pleasant and peaceful end which fades into the palate of our hearts by way of our ears. I truly appreciate your contribution to Linda. This song tells her story in a way that will be remembered for many years to come. I listened with great pleasure and enjoyment. The Lady of the Books deserves a first and second look... I am Stan Barnes and I approve this review.
Lady of the BooksGentle guitar introduction with a storytelling lyricist. Lovely to hear such a gifted lyricist with a vocal talent to match any country legend. I think you have a nice way with your lyrics which are very current. A bit like Bob Dylan and Tambourine Man. I enjoyed it very much such great imagery. Once upon a time...."there was a lady of the books...." great title. I hope you will keep writing you show empathy for your subjects. Your music tells stories of life and true journeys that people can relate. Nice one for the album first track. I hope you get published soon and get your album ready for sale. Please add lyrics if you have not already to the track information.
My review of the song.It is a very sweet song, full of sensitivity in each verse, excellently sung, the voice is clear and tuned, when you enter a different verse and enter the other sentence, no cut is noticed. The sound of the guitars and their interpretation is exquisite. The instrumentation and orchestral arrangements are excellent. The mixture is very good and well balanced. Maybe the song is a bit extensive, which takes away some possibility of radio broadcasting, but it is not made to be heard all day but to be enjoyed. Congratulations !!
