RING - NEW COUNTRY SONG - REVIEWS FROM GARAGEBAND
Ring
Band: JENAE
Genre: Country

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cool Intro!!!!!!
Vocals.... I like her voice...Lot's
As good as anyone on the radio today...I'm better than that phrase is kinda sexy like Shanya.Could be a little more expressive on the spoken words..kinda vanilla...Maybe more sarcastic or cocky like...She said sorry like she just stepped on his foot..Hook. IS Strong.... Could be much much better......ON the right track!!!

Don't Want That Ring
Solid honky tonk rocker, has the outlaw country sound. I thinks the vocals need to have a harder edge.
The arrangement needs a few more changes in it to mix it up a bit more.
- SouthernYankee from Warwick, Rhode Island on 16Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
yup its country
This is a really great song! I like the voice, but the backup vocals seem a little off pitch wise. the musicality of this song is great,

overall It is a great song
- Guitarplyrinak from Anchorage, Alaska on 12Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Needs work
Voice sounds dated.Too much time before lyrics start. Lyrics a little silly. Space after I dont want that ring doesn't work.
- sodamnlucky70 from Tulsa, Oklahoma on 11Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edgy Country
Such a nice voice, very appealing. Very catchy song, that is pretty edgy for the genre, but it works very well. Lyrics are original, and go nicely with the music. Sounds great.
- JohnDiBiasi from Los Angeles, California on 10Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great vocals
this song is very orignal, although the production value is low, the song itself is great. the lyrics offer and great flow of words, and great images around the 2:04 mark with a rhyme sceme that fits nicely in the song.
- countrysingered from Killeen, Texas on 9Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great vocal tone
This is a really rich, mature feminine voice. I only regret that this song doesn't have enough melodic variety to REALLY show off this singer. With that said, "I Don't Want Your Ring" is a cool concept and the lyrics are mostly pretty sharp. The content suffers some from the poor production..I'd love to hear a tightened up version together with some tightening up of the phrasing.
The hook is original and clever..great idea for a song. You do a fine job reinforcing the concept throughout.
I like the driving rhythm and the marvelous singing. This is a slightly flawed piece with tons of potential performed by some really talented musicians.
I like your style.
- daveyngr from Pine Grove, California on 6Jun2009

Great Vocals
Definitely Nashville country. Has a great hook. Love how the vocal go up an octave at 1:43. Has a Gretchen Wilson or Jo Dee Messina sound. Production is dead on. The lyrics are very relatable. This song should go far in a Nashville atmosphere. Overall good song. Go for it.
- ChrisWhitney from Seattle, Washington on 4Jun2009

Grovie intro
female vocals are very sexy and the beat gives that mood. Tempo change creates tension.

Interesting vocal tempo
- brianrill1654 from Salida, Colorado on 3Jun2009

needs a better intro
superb vocalist, dont really like the chords, try a solo instrument, music dosnt do this voice justice, find a new band

Review
Pretty good. Liked the intro. Good mood, but a little somber, maybe that was the intention. I was waiting for the climax but didn't pick up. Watch for the repetitiveness. Overall not bad.
- Nervein from Anaheim, California on 20Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody... I hate giving titles, lol
kinda gives a Mazzy Star kinda feel. I really dig the back ups. On the constructive side, I think there needs to be something in the beginning to give it more of a hook... slide guitar maybe. Over all great song.
- Reid1978 from Kansas City, Missouri on 18Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
tendencyful
you asked for backing vocals, lead vocals, drums:

First i have to say that I like the song.
It has a nice mood.
The guitar sound great.
The voice is great. Emotions are there.
Just the intonation is not perfect.
You tend to be flat. Sometimes that sounds blue and good and sometimes its just a tick too much.
The drums are very tasty played and tight.
Just the sound doesnt fit to the rest of the song. Drumsound should be smoother.
Cymbals are to sharp. I would use darker sounding gear.
By the way you have some bad crackles noise in this track. for an example at 3:40.
Check the fades in your session.
- Ricus from Vienna, Austria on 18Jun2009

Review
Soft good song. Like the vocals.
Nice preformance.
Bit of boring??
I can not decide that...hmm

Still a good song.
- dePhaser from Malmo, Sweden on 18Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hypnotic
Great intro. with hypnotic vocals. I found this tune very relaxing. Lead vocals were well done as were the harmony vocals. The drums were steady. I found the mix and production were well done. The only downside is that I found the tune got a little boring in the end, a bit self-indulgent. Overall, well done.
- separatedreams from Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada on 17Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
vocals
female vocals are ok, but feel weak.
backing vocals sound good.
the drums feel like they are meant for a faster song that will pick up but this song has a set tempo that does not coincide properly.
Good job on vocals 1:28
I'd like to hear lead vocals in a more powerful, faster tempo song. I feel like they can be so strong but are being supressed in this song
- natalyasings from Miami, Florida on 17Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I like it!
Dreamy female lead vocal, with equally dreamy/wispy female backing vox, over a sparse instrumental track, nice guitar work and the drums, per the artists request sound (tonally) very good and seem to fit the song well, no glitches, that jumped out at me. I liked the high vocal backup "counter line", when it popped in towards the end. It all seemed to work well, in a Cowboy Junkies/Sarah M. kinda' way. Good job
- waywardboyzklub from West Saint Paul, Minnesota on 16Jun2009

Review 2
This was an intruiging song-a bit long. Both the lead a backup vocals are strong and have the perfect airy quality this song needs.

Drums are good-not overpowering but kept the song interesting.

It would be nice if there were a few more transitions in the song because it felt like from start to finish it was the same thing over and over. Lyrics were okay-
- Room4band from Unspecified on 16Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Love the waltz groove.
Great vocal tone & production. Has a little Mazzy Star vibe to it. A string quartet would really set this song off. Good job

Vocals are what make this song...
Lead Vocals.... Very Nice..Quality Voice that is as good as anyone out there. Perfect pitch and tune.
Hook... It's ok... Nothing Unique or original. You rhyme the word it with it and then you with you. It's a good filler song but not a breakout top 10 kinda song.
- BrianWebbDallas from Rowlett, Texas on 19Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nice
Hey very nice voice, and the music is good but would like to here something more upbeat. Keep it up and you will go far.
- Dwayne_G from Marion, North Carolina on 15Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I like the vocals...
The simple production helps this track. I hate the kick drum. Like a big rock concert kit for a sweet soft song. Drums are a mess. This track would sound great with no drum track on it.
- ChuckSavage from Houston, Texas on 12Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nice!
Nice begining. Voice is great. I lkie the lyrics. Drums lacking. Could realy be good with the right production.
- sodamnlucky70 from Tulsa, Oklahoma on 11Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
:-)
An acoustic approach, at least for during the verses. Nice touch. Vocalist was solid. My only complaint is that nothing "grabbed" me - not the melody, not the lyrics, nothing. Except for the use of acoustic at the beginning that is. But there is definitely talent here, for sure.
- benjaminfaust from Saint Paul, Minnesota on 10Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's like yesterday
First of all let me say--great vocals. Probably one of the best female voices I have heard on garageband--great job. A natural country sound. The length of the song is perfect if you are targeting the radio. I like the cord progression--simple yet fitting for the song. I like the little things added--like the splash cymbal. I like the use of accented drums at certain points of the song--brings out the feelings more. Nice use of guitars as well. I like the ending with only drums--a little different touch. The melody was smooth and added to the feeling of the song. I'm not sure if you recorded the song this way on purpose but the drums actually sound like the primary instrument and the guitar the backup. It's actually kind of a refreshing change from the steel guitar you hear in these type of songs. Also let me comment on your lyrics and rhyming scheme--I have to listen a couple more times but you definitely changed from the typical aabb or abab format --and it worked out great. All in all nice job. I can't really think of anything really bad about this song--so that's a good thing. Keep up the good work

Yesterday
Closet/about it....great rhyme! Really an appealing vocal...every once in awhile there's a little twang, but mainly a great Pop voice.
There's not a lot of melody here, but i didn't mind...this was more of a scene than a song.
The hook lacks melody...but the aformentioned rhyme makes it for me. I really thought the drums were distracting..a little too boomy...
- balladboy from Lake Oswego, Oregon on 8Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great acoustic!
I hate when people line an acoustic guitar but here you almost get away with it. Lead vocals are great. Just as good as any dixie chicks. I wanna here this one on the radio! But in that case the drums mustn't be so dark and the lead guitar needs to be rerecorded with a more authentic sound.
- Dull_Horse from Gothenburg, None, Sweden on 5Jun2009
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A bit sad
This song was very down to me. The vocals are good, but the melody is depressing. Very talented musician(s), but for this song I don't feel like there is a lot of Wow-factor. Still it's a good song and well-written. 4/5
- Factor7 from Birmingham, Alabama on 19Apr2009

Nice intro
the vocals are nice
nice back up vocals
the vocal make this song at 2;15
a very little lead starts nice job
I would hope to see this singer record more !
not really country .. more classic rock like
- don347 from Hollister, California on 25Nov2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great Vocals
I was pleasantly surprised by the vocals. Very reminiscent of Sarah McLachlan. I was very distracted however by the drums. They seem over bearing and the tempo didn't sound right. It seemed a little slow and mundane. It would be cooler to have change ups in there more often, something very soulful and blue-like. It seems like it was missing another key instrument, maybe a violin or piano. Listen to "The Weight" sung by "The Staple Singers", The violin in that is what you need to give it a little life. Overall I liked the song for the vocals more than the music.
- RachelWills from Nashville, Tennessee on 12Sep2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Passion at work
The paino and acoustic seem to be off at the very beginning. I love the lead vocal work. Very nice timbre and emotive vocal. The electric guitar comes in and gives the song an entirely different style and takes it a different direction. The percussion is a little too hot for my taste with this style. Great job!
- Splendorleaf from Dawson, Texas on 10Sep2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pretty
vox are star quality...very well done
singer feels the song and embodies the writing
writing is exceptionally good
girl you have what it takes...beautiful!
- OSMR from High Point, North Carolina on 21Aug2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
great potential
great chord progression and chord voices at the beginning. The vocals are well done, but a bit buried in the mix. I think there are instances here where the singer can go for it a bit more, but I appreciate not overdoing it. There is a nice melody here and the chorus has a good hook to it. Like I said before, the chord progression is great and you can really build up alot of power and tension with a bit more production. This song has alot of potential to really knock people's socks off. Good job.
- EugeneG from Central, Alberta, Canada on 11Aug2008

Loved it!
I really enjoyed this song. It is very original. I loved the rhythm, and the way the song builds. From listening... I couldn't tell you what the name of the song is... but it really catches your attention. I really liked this song... the vocal were great, very calming. The beat was fairly addicting. Great job! The musical hook was great and catches your attention.

Thanx
This sounds like a band playing, reminds me of a time when people played music together. Good to hear, gives me some hope for the future. And that its excellent done is a nice bonus. My best regards to the drummer and the girl singin.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love this voice...
I liked the sus chords, piano/guitar, at the beginning.. set a very nice mood. The lead vocal was beautiful. Wouldn't have known she wasn't already signed somewhere. I think there needs to be more contrast between the verses & chorus. You begin to build a feeling with the verse, then expect to hit between the eyes with the Chorus, then it doesn't really come. Stays pretty even. The lead guitar solo needed to come out front more in the mix. The song doesn't quite rise up to the high quality of the vocalist. Great Start!
- SteveTraycee from Aurora, Colorado on 3Jul2008

great song and you sound great love your voice your a hit good luck.
- travy68 from Amarillo, Texas on 1Jul2008

Pretty intro
I could tell I was going to like this song as soon as it started.Great vocals,nice hook,and melody. Do the song over and clean up the guitar solo,and put more into your ending. But I'm sour you know that already.
Great talent
- dannygplayer from Gulfport, Mississippi on 20Apr2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah!
First thing i noticed about this track is the excellent production quality..
The lead vocals are brilliant, full of melody and such a pretty voice.
Really feel this song through the lyrics and hooky vocal parts..
Only slight criticism is there could potentially be more power in the chorus, on the instrumental side that is.
On the whole great work!
- showyourstripes from Milton Keynes, United Kingdom on 13Apr2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
strong tracks
Very strong vocal, I'd listen to this rich voice any time.. Maybe it was my headphones, but does the drum set sound a little dry? The hook is kinda unfocused, which detracts from some remarkable lyrics in the verses.
Greatest strength on this track is the wonderful lead vocal.
- daveyngr from Pine Grove, California on 12Apr2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sssgood
Vocals sound great. drums sound bad. you really have a good voice dont care to much for the song probably distracted by the drums though. You need better songd because you sound good. No Ive changed my mind. This is a decent song.
- Mpope002 from Kernersville, North Carolina on 25Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Drums and little mixing issues, but overall i..
I think the drums have too much reverb and the snare doesnt sound good. Also, the kick drum have sounds like its too loose. The vocals are good and well recorded, as well as the background vocals. The guitar solo could be brouht more to the front in the mixing. Overall its a good track, it just need some fixes on the recording/producing area.
- EduCesar from So Paulo, Sp, Brazil on 23Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REVIEW!
First and foremost, The lead vocals are great! She has a nice smooth, and, also she keeps you in the song. Great Job!
The "Hook". I believe it could be better. Like singing on the tag to wrap the song up in a "PROFOUND WAY" Like your voice is a little bit more passion with it. Other than that. AWESOME!
The melody was smooth, and fit for the song. It was gentle, but had enough passion in it.
- StevePetno from Orlando, Florida on 16Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
lovely piano
i really like the piano arrangement, great structure and writing, vocals are very nice, not a good mix on the drums, too loud & bass drum sounds bad, good hook and melody
- rjamadeus from Overland, Missouri on 9Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
nice arrangement/production
I liked the low key production on this song. Could have easily been turned into a big slick over-the-top number...but this arrangement really compliments the awesome vocals. The drums had a really cool phat sound to them which gave the song a unique flavor.
- Minibike from Los Angeles, California on 8Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Let Go
Lead vocals are clear and strong and delivery the story well, and with emotion. Melody is OK, very listenable. pharasing is standard but well suited to the piece. The Hook is quite memorable and sits well inthe Ch. The production doesn't do the song justice. Bv,s seem to fit well.

Review by Mike
Ending at 3:24, this tune is absolutely radio friendly lengthwise and on the radio is where it should be. Great vibe with some really well-crafted lyrics accompanied by an awesome melody. I was really impressed with the lyrics in the chorus from beginning to end. The real jewel of this tune seems to be the very talented female lead vocalist who did an outstanding job delivering a very memorable performance. Great job!
- MikeParrish from Houston, Texas on 5Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mediocre Song, Needs to take off
Great Vocals. Kept waiting for the song to take off, maybe some high notes. But it stayed monotone. You got a great voice, but this song is not a highlight.
- timzuly from Unspecified on 3Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Angels and airwaves
First thing I noticed was the guitar. I love it. Second thing, the angelic voice that hits you. It drew me in, and then the chorus. The song's working great as of 1:11. Deep lyrics. I love deep lyrics.

The guitar solo is too low in my opinion. I like how it's kept short, and how you let the music ring out and then jump right back to the chorus.

For some reason the drum beat at the end stuck out to me, and not in a good way. I'm not 100% on why, but if I were to attempt to pin it down I'd have to say the lack of supporting instruments.

I'd suggest turning up the volume on that guitar solo, let your guitarist shine through. The vocalist has a great skill, but that little lick shows that so does your guitarist, and turn down the volume on the other instruments during the drum solo. I believe if you bring that out, you'll have a song worth talking about over a cup of coffee.

Right now, I'd vote for an orange juice.

The vocals were excellent. The hook is ok, I like the melody in the verses a lot better than I liked the "hook". The chorus might be more interesting with a more complete arrangement, sounds like there is space in there for a countermelody.

unoriginal
ive heard this track before...I don't know which who stole it from who but a kid named Donnie J has a song called "Say I Aint Right" with the exact same backing track so i'm not gonna review that. The voice is a little raspy but it has a nice tone. The recording sounds rough and the vocals should be pushed up more to the front of the mix but other than that I don't really have much to say. Hook up with a producer and get an original production.

my review///
Nice vocal...you have a nice voice.

The drum helps to lift the beat...id maybe introduce it from the beginning rather than waiting those few seconds.

The track itself starts off well but lost my interest a little as it progressed...maybe some more points of interest may stop this from happening.
- Kevin_K288 from United Kingdom on 4Mar2008
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Background.
The lead vocal is good. The bass repeats an up and down movement which is just enough to make the hook stick. The melody is more rhythmic than melodic which makes at least one of your verses sound a little rushed in one spot. Some of the background vocals were nicely done, kinda sublinal. I think a bridge would really give this track that extra sometnig.

REVIEWS ON ALL OF JENAE'S MUSIC
You've got a BUNCH of songs on Soundclick . Well I had little choice but to try and listen to them all. Especially when the first one I heard was the edgy and compelling weeping. The acoustic guitar intro in Lost is the perfect introduction for your voice. Very emotive and the delivery of each word is clear and powerful. Nice guitar work again in Lie. This piece reminds me of Janis Ian. It's thoughtful, sad and true. I like your sense use of irony as a device in poetry. Misfortune has a great meter in the lyrics and I love the way your voice glides through the chorus. Thunder has a lot of strength, again the lyrics are clever and tight. Flying; I'm beginning to see that your dealing with all emotion and feeling in your work. Ok, I'm a bit slow. Probably because I've enjoyed the process so much I haven't seen the bigger picture. Nice instrumentation and arraingement on this one.
Break has a very powerfull aproach to it's lyrics. It's very much an art song and I think one of the best songs you do. The chorus are knock ya over strong with vocal harmonies. Very powerful song delivered with great emotion and skill. Waiting is fun. Ironic, but true. The guitar harmonics are crystal clear and wonderful. I love vibrato chords....Tommy James, look out. Crimson and clover move over (and over).
Broken shows some of what I've been waiting for. Your voice over a rock band. Very cool. Drum hits on this track are very well placed and clear. Love those snare hits. Distorted has wonderful images coded in the lyrics and the vocal chorus.
Nice piano and bass on falter. Sets the tone and this piece just rocks. There is something about Walls which reminds me of an old and somewhat obscure Stephen Stills song called 49 Bye Byes. It's not that it's really in anyway simular, but the feel I get is the same from both. That I'm listening to something of a truth about this artist. Something personal.
Understand has such a gentle approach to it subject. And finally the last track is appropriately Goodbye. It's a very sweet and sad love song.
I like your music very much. I like the way it's produced, your material and especially your voice. Thanks so much for coming to share it with us!

MY SONG UNDERSTAND REVIEWS FROM GARAGEBAND
Great Voice!
From the beginning, I can tell it is produced very well. Piano sounds good! Not over done, or underdone. Perfect. Female vocals.. have to say, they are beautiful, lots of emotion, and it pulls at the heart. The quality of the voice, and the range is surprising and very pleasurable. Good vocal harmonies. Drums.. could have used a bit more of a softer and driving beat in the background for the body of the song. Love the lyrics.

universal appeal
piano sounds very nice, simple but good, although not super original. arrangement with cymbal swells and such are very nice, drums sound great, and tune really gets some legs when takes off around 1.4 minutes or so...might want to get there earlier to keep your listeners... this tune is the type anybody would like, well done...oh and the vocals a real smooth and harmony is nice touch

Perfect Delivery
Beautiful song. well recorded and produced..very nice over all. The lead vocal is the center and the arrangment works around her..I liked this alot. The piano is simple but nice with a good rhytmic pulse. The drums are nice and again sparce.This is no show boat but it is no wallflower either. No it get;s your attention...well it got mine anyway J

Piano is a bit redundant. Voice is really very nice. Drums have a lot of character.

Nice
Nice piano sound. You'd be suprised how few people record a nice one. Your vocalist has a very pretty voice, but I think that the melody in the verses left something to be desired at times. The drums were just enough, but I don't think that they needed to play as long at the end because they sounded like they were tuned in a different key than the song. Still a nice song.

Etherial Vocal
The vocal floats nicely overtop of a dark underpadding.. the piano became a bit tiresome, but flowed nicely into the chorus. i kept witing for a change up somewhere, something that seems to be lacking in most of what I hear here.

lead vocals sound really great. very nice control, tone, and delivery. piano is nice too. simple, but appealing. the drums threw me off at first. i do get used to them, but the way they are gated makes them sound really fake. i would say try recording some live (or at least ungated) drums over top of the tom-tom loop (especially in the chorus). i can see the appeal of this loop now. good song writing! very nice chorus. those vocals are really touching. i'd like to hear more from you guys!

Emotional vocal performance
I like the emotional feel of this vocal. Smooth sweet voice. The song tends to drag a bit, however. Maybe the drums are a little uninspired/slow - if they picked up the tempo just a little this might help. Also, sounds like there is a little too much use of the cymbals to build tension (at first this helps build the song to the chorus, but then it keeps coming in and I think it starts to lose effectiveness... maybe it's just me). The piano is ok - but it sounds a little too similar throughout, even a little monotonous as we get near the end of the song. The melody is fine, but the chorus/hook doesn't really grab me. Otherwise, this has some great emotions, tension and mood. Not bad!

Strong 'Haunted' feeling with the mood, esp. in the simple but effective piano part. Drums are good too, but could be compressed a bit to keep them from being so 'boomy'. Vocals are good and clean, reminding one of many other famous chick singers (McLaughlan, Crow, Osbourne, et al). Still, a good strong album track with mostly positive production values.

Haunting ballad
I really liked this - it reminds me of some pop ballads that were big hits in the 1980s but with more feeling (and moodiness). So it comes across to me as more "real" than a lot of other quite similar tracks. I think the production is good but a tad bare - some acoustic guitar (in the back of the mix) would be great at certain strategic points. File under "Sarah Maclachlan" I guess. Vocals great, except for the word "world" the first time it appears. Piano is good, but maybe a little too loud in the mix at times. Drums throughout were very good - but I wonder if brushes could be used to fill out some of the parts that are a bit bare with some cool fills.

Great effort. Very minimalistic, and this really gets the emotion of the lyrics across to the listener. Amazing vocals - it's nice to hear someone with a great voice just "sing", and not do 8-octave vocal gymnastics. Piano and drums are restrained, adding to overall effect of "less is more."

Could be something...
Expressive vocals, has confidence enough to carry the song forward, good backings. Of course the production could need a more acoustic sound on both piano and drums, sound a little too midi overall. The lyric is perhaps the weakest part throughout. Very ambitious and pretentious but then there has to be more shifts and original lines to keep up with the rest. I mean, both melody and vocal has great potential, but then the words/rhymes just are too unoriginal and all to easy to interpret/predict. If rewritten I think the song would stand out more on its own. Good luck.

afterthought
Quirky drum pattern here. Sort of nightmarish with the piano. Dejected Tori Amos vocal or perhaps Maire Brennan from Clannad. I'd pull the drums back in the verses and let our gal nestle in the groove. Take the sticks out of the drummers hands and make him play with Blastix instead. Bet he'll nail his part better. Breakdown was cool, but piano pattern doesn't really ever evolve. I grew weary of it. Some kind of background vocal or an 'aaaah' pad in the chorus would have been nice- so would a bridge for the song! Good ideas here, now finish them!

Progressive tune and a killer singer
The singer has a very smooth and controlled voice; in the first verse, the vocal melody followed the root notes of the chord progression a bit too much, but the well-executed vocals compensates for this and still peaks the interest of the casual listener; well-thought out piano part - it has a nice rhythmic feel to it and the guitar/bass/drum complements it nicely; both the piano part and the singer's voice 'hook' the listener; the group is very tight and the final mix is well balanced; the style of music may not appeal to the masses but kudos for doing your own thing and not getting sucked into the mainstream thing; great job!

Sweet Voice
The vocalist has a very inviting voice although at times it doesn't seem fitting to the music since it does seem to have a sort of edge, where the vocals are pretty straightfoward without that little edge. But with the piano part the vocals shine and the hook is very memorable. I would see if the vocalist could possibly add a bit of grit to her voice but only at certain points of the song especially around the edgier music parts of the piece. Great song.

Well conceived
Liked the intro -- set a mood from the start. Catchy melody and a nice rhythm during the verses. Piano was critical to the song back there, but it was a bit buried and functioned more as a nice supporting instrument holding the melody than an instrument with a chance to shine individually. Vocals were also very good. Well conceived song which really worked.

Foresaken? Why not just improve the song?
The beginning is like the theme from the movie "The Piano".Sorta like a half-rate Kate Bush. Dramatic, but not very substantial...probably better live. The vocals and piano are the best parts. More KB than Tori Amos (I hate her). Made for a movie? The hook? Hooky! The song's bridge should be a break from the monotony that sets in after 2 minutes. You need one.

Xabiton - Did a review of song "INSIDE" on June 28, 2003
First I'd like to admit that I'm a fan of pop rock not an expert. Therefore I'll only post my thoughts about what I like and dislike about the track and keep it short and sweet.

The instrumental is nice. I like how it goes from soft to hard through out the track nice. This band can definately play their instruments.

Vocally I like her voice. Her smooth and warm vocals only add meaning to the song. She makes the song believeable which is extreamly important in a song like this.

The production value is alright. There are alot of times where the instrumental gets louder than she is. I would suggest recording the instrumental onto a mulittracker. Once you get the levels good on there let her sing over that and level the song out that way for a cleaner result.

Lyrically the song goes into the soul of every kid in high school who was thought of as weird. Or the kid who is thought of in the out crowd. It tells their story and how they feel about the world they are in and that nobody understands them at all.

Overall not a bad song very catchy. Although I don't think I will see this young star on MTV anytime soon I think she is slowly but surely making her way to the top.

NEW REVIEW - MAY 6, 2003
Jenae's "A Place Among The Fallen" is an enchanting work of power & melodic nuance. At times, this Canadian artist's work is of subtle textures. Yet always with an ample supply of emotive hooks & creative arrangements. Accents with acoustic guitars & piano; To electric guitar work of superior quality & Jenae's vibrant vocals, are an ever present gift to behold in it's vulnerability, strength & sincerity of purpose

"I (Don't Want To)" is a great dynamic cut crossing streams of rock, folk & pop in a fluid guitar driven river of cascading audio light; Whereas on tunes such as "Falter" , Jenae exhibits a melancholy & atmospheric focus that is both thought provoking & quasi-folk-gothic

"Lie" shadows an introspective acoustic guitar mode in the verse, with inner lyrical musings of longing that transmutes into a bold chorus. Coupled with songs like "Thunder" & "Break" , it becomes apparent that Jenae Rodgers music is uniquely crafted & emotionally telling in a dramatic introspective manner

Cuts like "Inside" mix alternate rythmic patterns with a vocal urgency that is Jenae's trademark. The chromatic construction of Jenae's music contrast with production flourishes in songs like "Flying" ; This highlights an obvious talent & inspiration, that is essential in its ability to transform with a fearlessness that is refreshingly mature for such a young & gifted artist

"She" is a wonderful song with fantastic chord progressions of major sevenths, that rise to a strong hook that segues back to the verse & a haunting string background. To understand the moods & messages of Jenae as an artist , is an interactive experience that enthralls both the performer & the audience in symbiosis

Jenae is a complex & perplexing mystifier of sonic attributes. Her sometimes harmonic layered vocals have a wide range of expression, flavor & mood. The hypnotic pseudo-orchestrations that filter through at points in her music, serve to enhance the warm & striking quality of her vocal presence. Jenae Rodgers is surely & fatalistically a rising star upon the musical horizon

Jenae ~ Sensual Siren
There's a reality to this, a reality that I have rarely felt in music. There's a sensuality to this, a sensuality that draws you into the reality being created by the songs, songs that at times literally take your breath away. Like a siren calling from a distant shore, your heart beats hard in your chest, you feel your soul moving inside, apprehension, you clinch the rails and hold on.

The songs are timeless, and have a strength, a strength even is the softest movements, that just will not let you turn away. The voice is mystical in its weaving of the stories that will find a place in you and speak to you like old friends.

That's it! Old friends, that's what I feel as I sit here a 4 a.m. still entranced and captivated by the flowing mist in the form of song, like wings quietly fluttering around me and when I turn to see, they are there, yet at the edge of my reach.
Sensual, I know I used that word already, but sensual it is, making your body start to sway slowly as it takes you. Your thoughts disappear into a misty place you know you have been before but can never know just where it is.

The music is indeed touched by the muses, from the soulful spiraling of the music and voice to the very well written and meaningful lyrics.

So far, I have only spoke of Jenae, and I must now speak of the band and the production itself. Powerful mechanics going on here as well as mysticism.

It's really great to hear what appears to be a full set of musicians putting this all together. In a world of one piece bands, myself included, it's truly good to hear artists working off of each other the way these folks seem to be doing. The major advantage of playing with several other musicians is that natural feel that is so hard to capture when you are creating on your own, or when you are recording with others one track/instrument at a time.

These folks might be doing just that, but it sure doesn't feel that way. Very interactive feel to this, this music that ranges from a powerful classic rock feel, to a soulful, bluesy jazz and passing many points in between to create a powerful alternative genre of its own.

Also a nice treat added to the collection; Jenae joining up with another Canadian female vocalist; Naomi, a power in her own right. The two do some excellent weaving together and should truly think about doing it some more. Both thoroughly enjoyable on their own, and doubly so together.

I just don't really have anything bad to say about any of this. Those of you who know me, know I only review music I like, and don't normally look for any downsides, but I can honestly say it wouldn't do me any good to look for them here, there are no downsides.

Jenae, truly a well flowing over with many, many songs, all powerful, all sensual, all a cut above, filled with a soulfulness that with fill you as well while it takes you into a deeper place and lifts your spirit higher and higher.

Great music, make sure you stop over and check it ALL out!
