I put a new song in my music website called “We Need Jason Bourne”. Please tell me how you like the song and how it can be improved (and I can return the favor if you wish; leave me a link). The song is at the top of this link:
The drums are strong, @aaron_aardvark, and the sliding synth is extra special in creating the ambience for your song. I enjoy the Oingo Boingo lighthearted approach you have taken. It falls in with other songs that are pop culture silly, which I tend to appreciate. That said, for some reason I am not hearing the words in the first half as clearly as I do in the second. It is close, and I’m not sure how necessary it is to be clearer as there doesn’t seem to be any deeper message being conveyed.
But let me compare to Cultured Personality where the words were easily understood despite a lot of musical action going on. You might try ducking the volume in critical spots to try having it both ways, but just upping the vocal level might be all you need to do.
I like the spy vibe of the melody, and your arrangement is smart folding in the instruments one at a time, but maybe it ends a bit lacklusterly. You could add some action bridge with more sound effects, too, might fit in well with your theme, but overall you have an excellent recording and a fun song, dude!
Thank you for the review, I appreciate it! I will now seek out your music.
