Closed Mouth Don't Get Fed
Review from Taxi Listener ID#178 Song Title Dodgin' The Rain Title Appropriate choice; appears in chorus; theme is woven throughout verses as well. Overall Comments: Nice job! Well put together. What stands out for me is the writing. It's intelligent & substantive. The experiences you talk about are familiar subject matter, but you give it a fresh treatment and a personal touch; relatable yet distinctive. Further, the 'dodgin the rain'concept & theme are well developed & carried throughout. Additionally, I like that you stretch for more creative ways of rhyming & don't fall back to typical, common approaches. All of that is then delivered with commanding & engaging flows. Good job on the vocals, both you & Big Reece. The hook has a strong, memorable melody & the singing is well performed. Underneath is really solid track. The beat & groove provide the momentum which is accented nicely by the dynamic guitar & warm sax. It's a cool,laid back, reflective mood that's still hip hop. Overall, a great outing; nothing really to change or improve; well done all around! Good luck with the project & all the best to you!
