Here's a song that harkens back to the roots of Jason and I working as a songwriting team. We present "Into The Sun"...a synth-laden ode to knowing what is important in life and how losing track of those things is like "looking directly into the sun."

I don't know where to start... I don't know where to end! I'm just listening to this again and again! There are so many cool twists and turns, from the wild square wave synth solo to the turn at the end into a light and floaty cul-de-sac. I love it!

True to form guys. This is top notch stuff. The lyrics are moving. Keyboard solo rocks in a totally 80's groove! Vocals are top notch. I love the ending. Tell the kids excellent work. I would have liked to hear just a touch less effect on the vox (when you have pipes like that, why hide 'em?), but other than that, this song is perfect.

I lately don't listen to the 'list' songs, because you know I hate the list, but this one caught my attention, specially because of the low rating comment above and the reactions towards it. I've been checking the RSS feeds on music comments and they are all 5s or 0s (0s being 'thank you's) and that has me a litte baffled, as I thought I was the only one not qualified to give less than 5s. As much as I love your work and you guys, Babs and Jay, and as much as I think our friend Rancho here was quite rude... well... there are some thing in this song that I think have quite some room for improvement, before giving all 5s. There are some parts where the vocals don't sound aligned and the sound is not clear all the way through... not that I can do it much better... but I know you've done it before...

So maybe I don't understand the point of Icomp. I thought it was to share music with other artists and listeners that allows you to give feedback on music. We are all striving to be better...why else would we be here? If you were perfect then why aren't you at the #1 best seller every year? My point in saying this is the last few weeks that I have come onto Icomp, all I see is negativity. That is not what music is about and I think it is very unfortunate that some people forget that. I appreciate you, Babs and Jay. You guys have the heart in ever song you do. You give 110% to your music and it shows in this amazing song. I wish there were more people out there that were willing to put everything they've got into something and produce the quality that you two do. Great job guys!

Okay, I am assuming there was someone called "ranch" who commented "this sucks" and got his comment removed. Well, ranch obviously doesn't get how things work around here. If you don't have something nice (or at least constructive) to say then don't say anything at all. Go and join artistweekly.com instead...

I think the comments you've received about how "the timing could be improved" or "the sound is a bit flat" come because of (a) the genre of music you are making - quite commercial sounding pop/rock - and (b) the fact that people around here have high standards for you guys. I think the best thing to do is to rate you relative to your other stuff, and yes, it's not quite as polished as some of what you've released recently. It's still better than what other people with more time and better equipment are doing, but it's not your best.

Right, so no ratings from me for this track, but just some actual comments on the music... hahaha... I love the synth solo, but I'm not so keen on the synth pad at the start. And I'd like to hear some quiet bits - it's kind of wall-to-wall sound. Maybe an interlude after the keyboard solo or something?

(PS Sorry about the rant there!)

Well, well, we've had a lot going on with this release, haven't we?

First off, I love the tune. I like the overall sound these guys produce. I like the thoughful approach and the blow-you-out-of-your-chair styling (like the old Maxell ad).

Second, I agree, that one should check an artist's other stuff out and critique accordingly to their level of skills. Or at least give a nod to their possibilities. To rag on someone's tune because it doesn't fullfill one's own style or likes is pretty selfish, IMHO.

And when I love a tune, I just flat love a tune. It can have warts, I don't care! None of us are perfect! Most of the time it's the warts that give us our individuality.

Play on.

Wow, who would have thunk a song on icomp would provoke so much attention. Here is the thing my friends. I am a General Manager for a very large casual dining company. I work 50 - 60 hours a week, plus I have a family to manage and somehow have to find time to spend with my family and myself. I write music because it makes me feel good, does it pay the bills? no, do I want it to pay the bills? no .. Am I a professional musician? no ... Do I want to be one? no ... Do I want to share a piece of my heart with all my fellow musician friends? Yes. Perhaps on the next song I put on iComp maybe we can say leave 0 stars if you enjoyed it? I just like everyone else love the comments, am I trying to improve my skills, sure I am. But at the expense of my own listening pleasure, those of you that have collabed with me know how I am when it comes to creating music, it has to be a fun process or nothing at all. I come here to share the type of music that makes me happy with my friends, and those friends are each and every one of you. In my world of Jason Trenkler 99% of those who I associate with have no clue to what I do with my very limited free time. If you don't like what I create, I can respect that ... I don't think there is anyone here on this site that has enjoyed every piece of music that they have heard here. However, understand that I am a real person, with real feelings who just wants to relax and enjoy my little hobby. Thank you to those of you who support my enthusiasm by leaving positive comments, and for those who don't send me a private message and tell me I am crap, I never claimed to be a pro or the musical mesaih. I just wanna have fun, and hope you enjoy the show. smiley

Well, this IS an amazing track. Can't add much to the above remarks except that it good to get responses. Isn't that one of the reasons (although not the most important) that we do this. I just feel so privileged to be here with you lot and hearing great music for free. The most important reason may be to please ourselves, as Baboon rightly put it. He and Jay are huge here and deserve it.

That's enough from me but not you guys - keep 'em coming!!!

familiar

well written.. production needs a lot of polish for the epic meat loaf bonjovi style rock opera. It needs a bigger ambiance. personally not my favorite.. but a potential for.... i dunno... 80's keyboard cheese rock just wasn't my thing. I could be just pigeonholing you but...

something about this song.....hmmm i'll re comment when i can put my finger on it

Now I know what started the excellent chat that we had today! Babs, we had a great little chat today about the ratings system and the need or lack of need to redo things and I totally respect that view Baboon. I tend to like the immediacy of vocals and performances that aren't labored. If you have the chops/licks you just do it. You both obviously have them. My opinions are more than likely irrelevant. Actually in the grand scheme of things, they are... But here they are anyway smiley:

I like this one- Babs' singing is very good. Some of the harmony vocals seem to be a bit too prominent in the mix to me. I wish that there weren't so many effects on Bab's voice on this one 'cause you have a hell of a voice and there doesn't need to be too many effects (or any at all) on your voice! Also there needs to be more bass to ground out what is a fantastic song, intrumentally. The synth solo is great and it does have a classic rock or classic 80's pop/rock feel, and that is actually a lot of fun for me. I like a lot of that stuff- the bombast and big stadium sound that was happening then. Synth-wise it is kinda reminscent of the synth stylings in (don't get mad at me!) Huey Lewis and the News' "Power of Love" at times. Believe it or not and hate me for it too if you must, but I do like that song a lot too! smiley What can I say-- I like a lot of different stuff!!

Jayman what can I say - you are a superb songwriter and composer. Well you both are! I have been enjoying your stuff ever since I got really into iComps and I eager jump into every song that either one of you or the Longlines do. It is that much fun for me to listen and enjoy!

That being said, I am not rating this song. It's not because I don't like it. Quite the contrary I like it a lot! And you guys know how much I actually dig your stuff. When the CD's done I will be among the first to buy! So what's the point in my rating?

The fascination on this site to me is that we are free to do what we like with instruments, sounds, fxs, composition..and perfection. All depending on how much we are able handle all of it.

This is a great rocksong from two exceptional talented people.The lyrix are awsomeand wise. Tastes are different but we love to see these little stars and to see us on the top of every list.

Not being there should not keep us away from what we are doing and to think about what is personal or common in a song..

You did a great job on this one!

jdwyer05 ... Funny thing, when I was writing this backing track, I experimented with alot of different sounds on top of this progression. I knew it was perfect when I started playing with the synth horns, and honestly I did think for a split second "cool, this kind of has that power of love feel." Nothing to be ashamed about, that is one of my favorite songs by huey lewis, I would even cover it, I ain't scared. Both you and Richard Geiger have been great friends and follow artists on this site, and I am humbled that you stopped by to say hello. And thank you all so much for listening to our music. Like it or hate, I am proud to be supported by my fellow icompers.

My thought: A dimmm one at that... but still a thought...

We are Artists. We love what we do and like many artist with paint and brush do not expect to see a dime come from what we do. It's just art for art's sake. The fact that we get to be in a community of artists and get to show off our wares to whoever happens upon them (worldwide) is a pretty awesome thing. I really appreciate the talents of people like Jayman and Babs and the way they take time to make these songs. I have worked with them a couple of times now and it's a refreshing experience after many years of touring and trying to make it. Just doing art for art.

Thanks guys for posting this song. It's great.

Man, I love you all (group hug). I think it appropriate that there are many who would die to do this song there way. I don't believe in ultimates when it comes to art, I do when it comes to money. I suspect you might have made a more commercial sound, I doubt you could make it better. The rest of this salad is (sorry, pun time) ranch dressing.

I liked it. I'm an 80s guy...
I dig that bombastic Moog keyboard sound.
Its great fun to play stuff like this, LEAN on that pitch bend!!
The traffic, the bills, by the time you get the kids to bed you're exhausted.
Might as well have some fun with whatever you got!
Great message! I hear ya!

Its acually a very well aranged piece.
Good solid melody, easy to rock out to.
Good lyrics and vocals. Maybe a bit more EQ tweeking to counter-balance the FX on vocal tracks. Some variation is always good.
Mix is a little bit flat, but it works and doesn't get too mushy. Needs some punchy low end.

The ending is really cool, nice touch. Was the kids playing intentional, or were they just getting loud in the next room while recording? Happens to me all the time!
If I was in a local bar listening to a band playing this live, I would have a rockin good time!
so there...that's a constructive review.

Seems I missed a lot. Comments responding to the ranch guy must have been removed, too? Just as well. As far as I can see, the ranch guy joined pretty much that day, left two comments on two different songs, both with no critical opinion in them whatsoever. It's one thing to leave all 1 stars and no comment. It's another do do it and then comment such that it's clear you're just doing it out of spite of some kind. Everyone else here who had criticisms of the song left clear indications of what they thought detracted from it or how they might think to improve it. That, too, is fairly subjective, but like Ponkey said, it's the way we like to do things around here. Just saying an artist sucks, can't do anything right, needs to use more expensive software to be a true artist, or whatever just doesn't cut it. And I like it that way.

If I wanted to be abused just for the sake of meanness, I'd go somewhere else.

I have to say that I am honestly surpirsed at the amount of positive feedback you have recieved on this song. I know nothing of your iComp history, but apparently you have a good following on here so kudos on that.

I would say that the "cheese rock" comment is right on the money. However I really think that the keyboard sound forces that opinion out of me. I would rather hear this produced like a Bon Jovi song, big Richie Sambora guitar sounds etc... But Bon Jovi from now not 20 years ago which is what this sounds like.

The Keys make me think "Hungry like the wolf" by Duran Duran.

I don't know guys, I am a proffesional musician and I know that you are "weekend warriors" of sorts, so I give you points for writing and recording music. That is F-ing great. However... This song...It's just so........cheesy.

I'm sorry but that is my honest opinion. However I am now off to hear some of your other songs to figure out why you guys have so many fans on here!! That does mean something!! I can't get anyone to listen to my songs!! Well..... just not as many as you! How do you do it?

Good luck!

Peace

There is *nothing* better than having friends defend your music!
I really appreciate some artists who have taken the time to share some of the off-kilter comments they've received on their own songs. It puts things in well-needed perspective, sometimes. Cheers!

I like the song..I like cheese too smiley sometimes you need a little cheese..like on spaghetti. Anyway, cool song (and I am a professional musician too). If all music was perfect, it would be pretty boring. We all need a variety. I think it sounds like pop rock, which is always cheesy. Love it anyway..REALLY!

You know, I really respect Lbarringer for giving his true opinion on such a popular song smiley

Anyway, as I already said, this is great, and I don't find it cheesy.

Cool track, great song, with a surprisingly good keyboard solo that left me thinking of Van Halen and other such rock gods!

My only criticism is that the vocals are swamping the mix and the distortion effect on them makes them very sharp and toppy, which isn't plesent to listen to...

I would love to hear a remix of this track with the vocals more in the mix and that distortion tamed a little...

Great job!
