Udaeus, thank you for your comments. We have wisely chosen the singer for this song and he did an awesome job on the vocal line.
Thank you for your contribution as well but we are now settled with the singer for this song and are no longer in search.
Keep track of the future projects. Thanks.

Listened through all 13 tracks and I must say you guys are ridiculously awesome. 'Before I Go' isn't really telling of how heavy you guys are though. 'Not For Me' and 'Never A Child' I love and the drums on 'It's All You' are awesome. Actually, they are all amazing and you should keep a high standard when choosing a singer.

Udaeus has uploaded a new Idea with the title Before I Go.
File Description:I threw this together real quick. Just the beginning because I don't want to waste my time perverting your song with vocals you don't want (if that's the case). Its a bit sloppy, horrible quality and I was trying not to be too loud in my apartment. Also, I wanted to do some asymmetry. LYRICS: these days they come and go in life. and i dont ever see just what i have been. and i take my toll on this delicate soul and i dont want to. (echo) wait no i wont let you go again now that nothing you say will dissolve through me. before i go just want to tell you one thing. before i go just want to let you know.
Try to look past the imperfections and tell me what you think. Seriously, it was done in like 15 minutes. Just sing it yourself or something.

Thanks Blue for your comments and for sharing you opinion. I appreciate that.

Thanks Blue..  Don't apologize, I always appreciate your ear and it's good to have an outside perspective.    Besides you always have a knack for hearing the good and the bad in a song and helping me weed out the bad stuff.    Your thoughts are always welcome and encouraged.....  At least to me :)  

I like the little voice as well..  I do think it might be a tad thin.   We did a few takes..  I might try and revisit some of the takes and put other options up to see if that feels better.

If I can find something that Lex is happy with, I'll need to take the hiss out of  it..  My little one was so quiet, I had to turn the mic up and you can hear the hiss in the back ground.

Sorry - im just a outsider spectator for this track so feel free to ignore my comments - but i personally liked the little girls voice.

If you take Pink Floyd for example - they open that track "look mummy theres an aeroplane up in the sky" and that track definately isnt immature :) It kinda reminded me of that a little bit

Just throwing my listener thoughts in !


However it goes - its all sounding good to me - good job guys

Do you hear an older girl teenager voice or an adult female voice ?   I don't think you'd want a male angel voice..  The other option is no voice...  I just thought a voice there would start the story off where the angel awakens after falling to earth and is lost and confused on how she got there.   Maybe not...

I'll play around with the first part of the last chorus.   Sort of torn because the chorus is supposed to be the catch phrase and repetitive but I'll see if I can come up with some variations of it and hopefully some attempts at a different approach without it becoming not a chorus.

Thanks for the update, Scott!

For the child voice - I think the previous version with a more mature voice sounded better. Right now the voice creates an impression of a childish song which was is not the intention. So, I would better try it with a mor mature voice or no voice at all.

I still think the song gets a bit repetetive to the end largely due, in my opinion, to the last chorus being sang in the same manner with same long notes. You did a very good job on th verses though - each verse has its own sounding regarding the melody and  that is very cool, it makes the song develop.

I feel we really need something different for the last chorus, at elast the first part of it. As I was suggesting earlier, there could be a half-whisper speech there starting at around 03:44. Another option is to totally change the melody for the first part of the last chorus (same marker - 03:44) and sing something totally different there.

Please, see what cool things you can come up with there. Otherwise the song can fail to hold attention to the very end.

All the best.

project_junky has uploaded a new Mix with the title Shine Concepts - 04_10.
File Description:Bad Mix...  Sorry..  I put the angel's voice in...  Well, actually my awesome 10 year old daughter did  :)  ....   Fixed the "Sign of Weakness" and the Run run part...  Also chopped the long vocal at the end...  I think that was it...  Did I miss anything ?   Let me know how it sounds or what I missed. :).
