CROWD REVIEWS for "GETTIN' READY TO RAIN" from the album
"RUMOR" by DIXIE STILL
READY TO RAIN" REVIEWS
"The tune is catchy and upbeat. It is easy to
follow. The words are pretty easy to understand. I just wasn't that crazy
about the introduction into this song and it tends to repeat the lyrics a
little too much."
"I liked the start to this track as it made you
jump with the headphones but it does make you feel wide awake. With the
sound of the storm at the beginning of the track made me feel like it was
going to be a more lively track. However, when the artist started singing
and when I heard the lyrics to this track, it all makes sense and it very
clever. I believe that this artist can and will be successful in the music
industry. There isn't anything that I would change to this artist, style of
his singing nor this track. The length of this track is just good timing as
it is enough time to enjoy this artist track and not too long for the
consumer to be bored."
"I liked this song, because it combined elements
of country music and a rock song. I am not a big country music fan but I do
like rock. I liked the instruments because they combined both elements well.
I especially liked the progression of the guitar and drums near the ending
of the song. It had a nice development. My only suggestion would be to cut
the length of the song."
"The introduction is dramatic and full of
curiosity. The dissonance harmony and counterpoint makes the chorus section
on the song stick out. The enharmonic intervals are tastefully placed. The
vocalist has great intonation and melodic movement in his note choices. This
song has a strong country feel and every element was clear and precise."
"Unique thunderstorm start, although that does
remind me of a Steps song... The song that come after is not what I
expected, but it makes sense after the you hear the song. The lyrics of the
song are well written, although slightly predictable. There is good beat
behind the song, and the violin really adds a nice element to the song,
especially the solo. musically the song is good. The vocalist if good with a
nice range and a really good tone that suits this track really well. The
country element is not to strong for it to be put off making the charts, so
I think that this song has some good potential."
"The thunderstorm intro is neat and sets the
tone nicely. The vocal delivery is great and there is a ton of emotion in
the vocals. The lyrics are great and the entire track is very well composed.
Country music fans will love this track. The music fits very well and the
production quality is very high, nearly professional. The rhythm is well
thought out and the bridge is exceptional. The piano and violin combination
is great as well."
out with thunder, works well with the transition into country. Lyrics fit
together well with the music. I really enjoy the vocals and the make up of
the music. This feels like it could work out as a very popular song on the
radio. A lot of repetition. Nice intermission around 3:00. Really love how
the piano is worked into the song and the sounds of rain and thunder. Really
complements the lyrics."
"Wow, this is a really good song. It sounds a
little like something I have heard before. It's good though. The lyrics are
familiar, but also distinctively different at the same time. The vocals are
very attractive and sweet. He has a strong and confident voice. The overall
production quality is really high. It's done tactfully and with expertise."
"The use of a thunderstorm to convey the song is
about rain is very nicely done. Its very well constructed with how the
lyrics explain that it's about to rain with the use of thunder. It's also
interesting in that most country songs don't use those kinds of sound
effects, other than Garth Brooks in Thunder Rolls. This is a good country
dance song, and will make a good country hit!"
"The music kinda heavy and very fast beat. I
don't really understand what is the song about something about the rain
maybe. I like when the thunder sound is added into the song like something
bad and scary about to happen. Kinda creepy."
"Very well mixed! Although I wasn't so keen on
the thunder at the start; it is not needed. The course is very catchy and so
easy to listen to and sing along to. I liked the instrumental part of the
song at 1.35 it adds alot to the song and builds up nicely to the second
course. One criticism is to maybe reduce the bass in the song to bring out
the more technical instrumental elements in the song during the course."
"Very strong and loud instrumentals. They work
very well in tandem with the strong and energetic vocals. Song is great, and
would do good on a radio station. Depending on the locality may become a
hit. Intro is perfect."
"This song reminds me of Garth Brooks' Thunder
Rolls. Good lyrics with a catchy chorus. The instrumental is good. This the
typical pop country song heard all over the country stations. I am sure
those who like country will enjoy it."
"The beginning of the instrumental reminds me of
Eminem's "Stan". Once the guitar started and once the singer began
singing, I could tell it was a Country song. The singers do a good job of
harmonizing. Their vocals are very good. The melody is catchy and I could
see this being on the radio. It may even be a commercial success amongst the
"violinist was definitely in key and on
note...piano/organ is definitely an attention grabber the vocalist did
really good at harmonizing his vocals for the "oohs" and also
other parts throughout the song. i loved how at 2:43 seconds of the song, it
seemed as if the song was over but he brought it back with an un expecting
break down. the drums and vocals were crispy! the sound effects of thunder
in the intro and outro is amazing! the country feel of the
organ/guitar/piano is luring and has high energy! the vocalist did really
good at projecting his voice as well. No complaints on this song! This is
really radio quality!"
"wow nice country song. I don't know where to
begin. The special effects and thunder sound threw me off. But the rest of
the sound was pure country. I loved it. The vocalist had a nice rich and
deep voice for country or pop music, it was good. The music was hopping or
blasting, I love all the beat. The piano and guitar were awesome together.
The beat was non stop, it was catchy and easy to fall into. Just an awesome
dance song. It was just great from the start to the finish."
"The sound effects in the beginning were very
creative and really set the mood for the track and added a bit of mystery as
to what was to come. As the music comes into play, there isn't much about it
that really kept me entertained, besides the melody. I am not a fan of this
genre, nor am I a fan of anything associated with it. I like the melody
because there is a variety of sounds that I really enjoy. I love that the
player of the drums has used the rim of the snare to make a beat. The
clicking is a nice touch and adds power to the melody. Guitar is not
distorted in any way and the sound is superb. The riff itself flows well
with everything else that is going on around it. Violin is used a little too
often in my opinion and it's too much noise for the variety of instruments I
already hear. The piano adds a slight Jazz sound to the track that is very
interesting. Each stroke of the key is upbeat and fast paced. As for the
lyrics, they are too Country for me and there is nothing about them that
jumps out at me or makes them different from other songs of this genre. They
are slightly plain and boring and they do not hold my attention for very
long. The vocalist is a great singer and he lacks an accent, which is great.
His harmonies are smooth and on time. He knows exactly when to use the
correct notes and that is always a plus. Personally, I would not listen to
this, but there is tons of potential and it would attract a large audience."
"The lighting and thunder were a very interesting
choice to open the song. However, then the song goes to a slight a-capella
and then the male vocals come in and this song is just WOW! This song is the
next level of good tunes. I loved the small drop at around 39 seconds into
the song. I think it was really a nice touch. Also, the drums are effective,
and I love the drop at around 1:03. The chorus of this song blends perfectly
and it had me jamming and wanting to dance. This song is very unique because
it blends rock with country and it even has some country in it. I also like
the small solo for the string instrument at around 1:40 into the song. I
think it was an interesting approach to the song to be like this. The singer
had a very powerful voice and it blends perfectly with the upbeat tempo and
the fast and in your face dynamics of this song."
"The artist has a very rich tone to his voice, as
rich as the violin. both create the melody very well and keeps the listener
entertained. I feel that although this song gets hectic at times, it is the
right sort of hectic. It just contains a lot of elements to spice up the
listening experience for listeners."
"This is a country rock song that is just
flushing in with tons of chords that are hot and stable. The song is in a
proud texture that is just winding into the chorus so fast. That is how the
song is able to spike with a fever that is just expanding. This is music
that has force and power that are drilling fast into the song's main themes.
That is where the music is able to just jump and flow with a bass sound and
list of spirited chords. This is music that does present a fast wash of
melodies and drums that are just flashing with energy. The song is
impressive and so sharp with sounds that drip and skip with tenacity. That
is how the song is using violins and harmonica sounds to just fly with a
newer and long ranging power. This is a song that is just filled up and
slashing with a heat that is able to extend into the solos. This song is so
bold and fun as it is able to really take off and show fans a special set of
notes on the radio. This will be a solid and fast moving piece that just
starts to jump with electric spots of soul. That is why the song will be a
top seller with no flaws and troubles in finding success. This is music that
is reaching to become a hot and fierce song."
"The song itself is catchy and the
lyrics/vocalist are good. The backing singers really help compliment the
main singer and the instruments chose were the right choice. I think this
song could sell one day."
"The beginning of this song is interesting, it
sounded like thunder, then an older country tune came in. It started to flow
and it almost wanted to make you dance. The singers voice is great as well.
That is one good country singer. The melody of the song, the pitch in the
voice, and the tune, the tempo all fit together, I think it is a great song
and I will rate it high. The tone and the melody, pitch all fit together,
would definitely listen to this song again."
"Love the start of the song with the thunder
because it also features in the lyrics which I feel are very well written.
The vocalist singing the song has a fantastic voice and fits perfectly in
with this song. He brings a lot to the song and certainly makes it better. I
felt the instrumental segments of the song were absolutely amazing and stood
out brilliantly. This song has rain pouring down which makes me love it even
more. The song also has energy and a really good melody that stands high and
mighty above most songs. The length of the song is about 4 and a half
minutes but I think that's perfect. Also the rhythm of this track is
something special and I have to say I really loved it. This could be a
massive hit because I for one would definitely buy it and I usually don't
like the country type music but this had something other tracks don't."
