Shade of Blue – Not Alone

What to say Shade… This song is up to your standards I’d say. The instruments together form one of the better songs you’ve written. The verses have a nice clean chord progression, the chorus has a nice progression too, just nice. One of my favorite places must be the second half of verse 2 with the distorted riff – adds a lot of power to the mix.

The only bad sides of the song are the way I feel like the lead guitar and vocals in this song are fighting for first place instead of working together, and then the interlude which is maybe a little too empty. Vocals throughout the song seem to have odd rhythms, and this to me is present even when the vocals enter at the beginning and the lead guitar is absent. Just the phrasing of the vocal line seems to counter the rest of the band at times, if that was what you were going for then that’s fine, but to me it’s a little bit off-putting. In the interlude, at times I feel it’s a bit too empty, especially the time when primarily the bass is playing with the clean chords without the lead sounding in the front. I know you were going for emptiness there, I just wish for a little more filling, so to speak, to make the emptiness seem complete, maybe with the lead guitar doing something more, I don’t know.

All in all though, it’s a good song that flows.

Shade Of Blue – Not Alone

Typical Shade :P two words do this song enough justice :P

Seriously though, this is one of your strongest offerings in my opinion. Whilst it may lack an insanely powerful chorus (something you did fantastically in “Broken Image”, the chorus haunts me to this very day), the stuff here is solid, neat riffs and hooky melodies that stick in the head of the listener. The chorus deserves recognition (yeah, just because you wrote one insanely booty-kicking chorus back in the day doesn't disqualify this as serving its purpose here) – it's a good chorus, it worms its way into the listener's mind and feels very comfortable there :P

I'm liking the lead presence. I always lacked the “visible” impact of a lead guitar in your pieces, and here my itch gets rubbed a little ;] thanks for putting in all those cool guitar phrases all over the piece, they add to the experience, they really do. Another aspect that deserves special recognition would be the interlude... the solo-like part leads out into a dark guitar/bass interplay... then you get a haunting melody... chills down back – check. Good segue back into “normal” song – check. Great stuff.

Shade of Blue - Not Alone
I won't botheer with inserting a list for this one, it is a great song, nice use of everything! The
interlude "mix-play" (95-103) sounds superb! This is not the only thing rising this song, but that's
what really sticks out, making this more than a rather decent "radio"-song into something totally
different. The thing I'm not that fond of is the fact it sounds a bit too Shade of Blue-generic, better
than most of your songs, but it is still too similar. I've heard other similar acts too, but I can't put
my finger on where, since it's not "my" genre.

Well, having that said,
