Default No one cares about my songs? No criticism?

I know I'm not perfect. However, I'm looking for comments and some production advice. I used my Digi 001 to create these tracks.

Please Check Them Out At: http://www.myspace.com/HaroldEverton or www.evertonrecords.com

I'm working on my album to shop to major labels. Yes I played all the instruments, no I didn't sample, and no I didn't rely on loops. Thanks.

Well... in truth, I'm an old fart and your stuff isn't exactly my style ... but I think you've got a lot of talent.
Tracks sound good on MySpace.
Like the layout, too.

Apart from the point, I know, but I like how you used an "Intro" track. Great idea.
Nice lead in to your site.

Good luck to you-

That sounds awesome bro!! did you use the funk logic masterizer sometimes??
can hear a prince influence in there, but your sound is original. production is pretty slick. nice work and good luck!!

actually though i think you could use a bit more mid/bottom on your voice at times. The whole mix sounds wicked and its prob myspace, but listening through my top notch bose headphones , overall i reckon a touch more boom/bass/mid, or maybe just on the synth. i reckon your probably way more experienced than me anyhow, so dont take me too seroiusly!!
In control i reckon is a primo demo and is pro as it is for plugging. anyone in the industry can see you know what you are doing and that you aint no amatuer. im writing this as i listen... its pretty busy aye? thats good for clubs and big stage productions...
i think too that maybe theres alot more reble sounding instruments than bass sounding ones making it a little uneven. on a 002 though its unreal, sounds very professional...
All this said , i think its bloody wicked!
now back to my own rocknroll...
peace!!

I really like the music! Reminiscent of older Lenny Kravitz in some parts of In Control. It's hard to get a real feel for the sound quality though because of myspace. Their compression sucks and sucks all life out of music. Maybe post links links to high qualiy mp3's in the "Lets's hear you latest stuff...here" thread that is stickied. You would probably get more feedback there.

Cheers!

To be honest, I didn't do much with the vocals. They were recorded with my cheap Behringer B2 Condensor mic. From there, I used a DeEsser, A Gate, Bombfactory 1176 Compressor (With Factory Pump Setting) and an EQ. That's it. I loved the sound that I got, and am thrilled that you like it.
