The only thing you are going to get from a horrible service like Landr is a louder and more compressed version of your mix. The best thing you can do is try to learn as much as you can about the...

This album has bummed me out. The obvious Melodyning that was used to give the appearance of a vocal performance is disappointing.

I was born in '92, so we're probably close to the same age (unless you're late '90s). You're seeing a lot of '90s trends (mainly fashion) coming back as well as some of the album covers and vibes....

For some reason, this acoustic version of "The Pretender" by Jackson Browne always hit home melodically and lyrically more than most other songs I know.

Good point. I personally am less interested in hearing about the 'trend jumpers' that largely define mainstream popular music, and always have.

Should Artists Change?

I'm sure this topic has been raised in some context before, but I would be interested in getting a more recent take from MB users.

With Bowie's recent passing, many have praised, or gawked, at the...

They're apples and oranges, in my opinion. Dave Grohl (other than Marigold) was not a songwriter with Nirvana. People have analogized it to be a Lennon/McCartney situation. It's largely what you...

I found Chinese Democracy to be well-intentioned, but you can hear a lot of overthinking in the production. I wouldn't be surprised if they had half a dozen versions of each song.

That was pretty interesting. It reminded me of a John Cage piece in a strange way...not so much in sound or style but in terms of approach and the vibe I was getting while listening and watching him.

There are "stars" - just not "rock stars." Pop is the dominant format now. Rock music is out. There are some good rock bands, but the major label system no longer sees rock music as it did in the 80s...
