Perpetua review

Thanks for the link to the song. Its the first time in about 6 months Ive listened to songs on here, ao you might be lucky and have got me at a good time lol. Good, track, reminnds me a bit of a song by The Cure, Boys Dont Cry, and another british singer songwriter Jamie T. (one you will have heard of, the other probably not). Not a criticism, who am I to criticise, we all have things we might do or change to sounds, in my view the intro is a bit too long. And maybe the ahhhs werent needed. Doubling up on the vocal with some melodies, again just my view, might make the track stronger and more stand out. But, like it, well done.

Fun Song

Jay Palsay's, "Perpetua" is a fun song. You can feel the energy and spirit of the song as it evolves from a subtle, melodic and somewhat laidback introduction into an energetic Punk style song. The breaks and the overall production make this and even better piece that's easy and fun to listen to.

Great Song

Loved the introduction and how it lead into the song. I listen to every type of music and wasn’t turned away at all. The break downs and style was awesome and I really enjoyed the song. The song was well written and had a very original feeling to it. Wish you the best… Profit

I like the sound it's original! I can feel the heart in this showing you put in some dedicated work. I like the melody and the smooth rhythm, very laid back but can bob your head to!!! Sounds like the studio vibe was feeling the vibe I could sit back to this one and zone out!!!!! More artist should study the roots of their culture of art more to be better at their own art. Keep up the good work and stay in the lab creating new material to stay fresh and on your toes. Peace!

The song and vocals remind me of Elvis Costello style. Not I punk I know! Had a little difficulty follow the lyrics but that is me. I like the guitars and drums dynamics as they interact with each other! The song has a lively sound and should be a crowd pleaser played live!

Pieces of ideas, just needs more organization :)

Hello Jay :) I think that in this song there are some very interesting ideas, some parts of melody have actually good potential, but they lack of organization and "continuity". It's a bit confused. It seems also pretty difficult to sing, which explains why it's often out of tune. If I were you I would put some more work on it, I'm sure it can become way way better, the idea is there :) Greetings from Italy!


Well the question is about the tune which is quite nice.. Still think the sound is a bit confusing but I guess it's ok for a night of live music. As far as commercial use I think it might have a chance at a few radios

Let me begin by letting you know how I will be addressing your song. I review from a commercial standpoint…..which is to say how would your composition fair if you were trying to place your song with a publishing firm? The other alternative would be with you as artist. If that were the case then one either likes or dislikes what you have produced. That is not my agenda as I stated earlier. You have a nice start to a song. Nice rhythmic differentiation in your melody. Also the melody has shape. If it were me I might consider looking at the phrasing of your tune. I like the rapid fire vocal delivery but having some variation in phrasing might serve you well. The rapid fire delivery while effective makes the comprehension of your words a tougher challenge. I find it helpful to listen to artists I like or are maybe in the same genre as my tune for ideas......see how they handle phrasing / arrangements and production. For example....Your song has a "Offspring" vibe for me. Re-writing is never fun..... but can be a rewarding effort when implemented and completed. Good Luck and Keep Writing! RW

Liked very much the synth. in the beginning of the song. It's a great alternative song with more interesting melodic phrases. The guitar is very well played. Great beat and vocals! Keep the excellent work! Aira Winterland

Originally & Authentic


The song starts off with engaging e-guitar riff what brings the listener on the next level. The synthesizer-sound comes at the right time. I like the imaginative style of the track and the very good played rhythm-guitar. Various drum-parts very detailed played are an extra factor. Jay Paslay has talent to give an account in words about someone or something, including all the relevant characteristics, qualities, or events. The vocals varied in the pitch range, but that makes the song lively. Overall a creative recording and unique quintessence of Indie- and Punk-Rock. I´m sure you will like add it. Let others know your recommendation.

In My Opinion

Greetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is NOT very crisp and bright and clear, Consider adding a small amount of processing on your vocals a little , not singing in a tunnel, more natural sound, but, not dry and flat either. I really enjoyed the message in this song.Think about a music solo break to step away from vocals for a short period in future works. The mix levels do NOT let me know who was still in charge of this song. Music level to close to same as vocal. Was NOT very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny

out of tune

poor production,vocals out of tune,sorry guys but the truth is the truth. Try auto tune and see if it helps. Good luck.. I could not understand lyrics, i did not understand what the song was about,was it political,love song, protest? Keep at it,I would recommend a recording engineer.

Acid rock

This interesting song shows a fusion of different kinds of music, from the hard rock sounds, to a punk groove. The way to sing is particular and very contemporary. I think that this is a peculiar idea of music.

Perpetua review

This is an interesting song. You have obviously worked on it for awhile to end up with the arrangement you have here. I review by looking at each part of a song. As far as the track on this, I think you have a good structured rhythm guitar pattern going. I would probably suggest bringing your drums up a little bit. Possibly a remix of the song. The weakest part of the song is your vocals though. There are a lot of notes that have run off the road and they are even more obvious with the vocal mixed up high and very dry. When you remix the track, redo the vocals. If you can't get them right, you may want to look at another singer? Songs last forever and you should always try to use the 'best' players you can when recording. Whether its the drums, guitar or vocals, this is what you will hear years from now. So make your best impact with who is on the recording. Good luck moving forward and keep writing!
