    Very nice. Unique original style, nice voice, cool beat. I like that he’s not trying to be someone else. He’s proud of his own voice and feels what he’s singing. When I see someone like him I really appreciate what this competition is about.

    the voice is great. nice style. nice lyrics. but the arrangement is very dissonant. kinda hurts the ears. a cleaner composition would’ve been excellent

    Awesome song!

    He needs to work on his performance though. The video seemed kinda dry to me, I found it kinda boring to watch. (might just be me. I didnt sleep last night so i don’t have patience for anything right now)
    I am listening for the 3rd time though, love the song.

    I like the fact that

    Great song – I love it and am listening to it over and over. Finally decided that I like it so much not only cuz of the great beat, energy, lyrics, music, etc – which are all there, but also b/c it took me by surprise every step of the way – by pleasant surprise! Most songs you hear nowadays, you can sort of tell what the next line is gonna sound like, cuz they’re all pretty much the same style. This one is not, it’s fresh, it’s different, and it’s GOOD! I especially like the way the line “open… Read more »

    lyrics

    The music is full of talent and the voice is beautiful. I just wish some more work would have gone into the lyrics. Part of song is poetic voice. Putting random words to a tune is okay, but when a songwriter employs the right poetic devices it can bring the music to a whole different level. Rhyming songs aren’t “old fashioned’, they compliment the repetitive flow of notes. Aliteration similarly highlighlights musical flow. At least the break points in the lyrics compliment the music.
