The road to freedom


Song Reviews

I like this song


Ton of good stuff here. I really like the chord progression (it's truly interesting and pleasing to the ear) and the suspended chord you use in the pre-chorus. Base line is really nice. I really like the general message of the lyrics, being misunderstood, looking for a place where you feel appreciated and understood and free with a nice dose of nothing is going to get in my way of finding that place. Gives the song a lot of substance, which automatically makes it better than anything on the radio these days. Something I think could take the song to the next level would be reworking the opening lyrics. If you could give the listener a picture or example of what is causing you to want to look for the freedom, I think it would be helpful. There was also one spot at the very end of the first chorus where the organ really did not fit. Other than that, excellent stuff here! Keep up the good work!

Take your own Road

This song has lyrics that are well thought out, and the re-work has added some nice dynamics to compliment them. Speaks to resilience, and finding that solution that works just for oneself. I liked the melody, performance, and instrumentation. Well done Pete & friends.

Spicey Pete... The road to freedom


A nice clean song (not messed with ) seem like the same cords as knocking on heavens door or Rise by Gabriel in fact now I have said that same tune as well. Keep at it spiceypete you live in a good part of the world for live music seen many a band in Ghent and street performers lots of Student culture and great coffee and food .. loads of opportunities to hone your talent the organ sound may be should fade in rather than jump.all the ingredients just need some adjustment

Nice guitar work and vocals are right on key. This song would be great with all the instruments following the guitar. As a songwriter myself I can picture all the other instruments making this song good for public sharing. Nice work!

The Road To Freedom


This song is very raw in the recording side of it, but I really liked it and feel the content was very good. Until you would take this effort to a better studio to truly capture your song at its best, I would suggest backing the keyboard way back. The interjections of the keys seem to take away from your vocals. The acoustic guitar and bass give you enough of a groove to get your song across. The keys should be more of a synth pad to carry the flow rather than sporadic stabs throughout the song. At any rate, keep writing those interesting melodies like you have here. Good luck!

Nice guitar lead, I like the live sound and mix of drums. A little bit of a classic mix showing you've done your homework on your art. More artist should study the roots of their culture of art 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. If you're ever looking for a hip hop collaboration hit me up I'm versatile. Peace!

The Road To Freedom


Greetings to Pete. I like the passion in the song. Instrumentally it's different. Reminds me of the late 60s....I do agree with another person who offered a review of your song. The production could sound better. If I could suggest garageband software. It's free on Apple products. Purchase a Behringer 404 interface. Around $100 for the interface. Go to work...It's a song worth making better. But well done to now.

good sound

credo che questo tuo brano vada assolutamente valorizzato con una registrazione audio migliore.. è un peccato sentirla così approssimativamente arrangiata e registrata perchè per me merita più attenzione. Capisco che a volte si fa quel che si può ma queste mie parole ti siano da spinta per lottare per migliorare le tue opere. ne vale la pena ciao Giordano

Good base song, better production.


The base of the song is good, nice lyrics, catchy tune. The song lacks in production, mixing, vocals. It takes a lot of courage to put your song out there and many on here I think will give most songs all postive reviews. If you want to grow as a musician it will be hearing the negative things that will help you grow. I would definately make the recording more crisp. Now it is possible you were limited by recording the song at home. Perhaps going to a professional studio would help. The song started out crisp but when the keyboards where introduced there seems to be some sort of distortion added which I would remove and make more clean. Also there were a jarring keyboard part during the lyric "nothing will every lead me astray" I would remore and rethink that. The vocals were a little pitchy throughout the song. With practice that can be fixed. I really like the composition of the song. I like the lyrics. Feel it could have be executed better.

The Road To Freedom


Moving slowly....road to freedom has a nice beat and a great electric/acoustic guitar. The sound of the chimes ? and the e-keyboard don't mesh with this song, a bit too jarring and detracted from the flow. I like the lyrics. Nice gentle melody, melancholy and hopeful at the same time. I hope you get to where you are going fast. Reminds me a bit of Tamborine Man song. I liked the last chords on the guitar as a finish, nice touch. I think you should definitely re-master this so we can hear your vocal a bit better. It is the kind of song that will stick in your memory if you have a better quality recording.

Experimental sounds


The audio of this song is very low, there's a grunge background, but this ballad seems a blues traditional, with somethin' to instrumental. The idea of a sound which stoppes the song is interesting.

70´ties music style

Listen to this instrumental based song a couple of times. Remembers me of early recordings from Neil Young. I like the classic acoustic guitar sound. Pete finds the right chords. This remastered song has important messages and the lyrics come from the heart. Additional drums or percussion could give the arrangement more interest. The keys implements a soft blues atmosphere, but from 1:46 min to 1:50 min it sounds really disharmonic. But overall this ambitionated song is worth to listen and maybe you will likewise add it. Let others know your recommendation.

Creedence vibe really rocks


Great song! Just wanted to chill all day to this ‘Road to Freedom’ song. Nice lyrics and that bass just rocks. Really liked the guitar too. It’s rawness is also quite appealing. Bob Dylan/Creedence Clearwater Revival vibe. Well done!

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 very muddy, distorted, not bright and clear, I really enjoyed the organ. Think about a solo break to step away from vocals for a short period. Vocals are smooth and natural, but over-run by the backing music, especially the Bass ... it run overtop of everything. The mix levels need a lot of adjustment. Message in song was good, what I could hear... Back the Bass down, bring the vocal more upfront as well as the acoustic guitar. 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

Interesting song


I actually really like the song. Nice harmonies, good lyrics, it has flow, it has interesting musical ideas. I like the bassline, too. There is some wierdness going on at about halftime, the organ plays a wierd chord. I like the structure, too. The melodyline is good and catchy and goes well with the lyrics. gotta be honest,at first I disliked your song, maybe it was because of the very poor quality. But as I kept on listening, I heard all the potential in it. Congrats, keep on writing stuff. If you want your compositions to be played by a good band, and maybe record it and split the revenues, send me a message on Facebook, check out my band Koszika & The HotShots.
