I just did an update on Amazon for the particular release and I know that it is for "physical" cd's. I emailed CD Baby in the past about it and they never replied back, they are usually pretty good about getting back on most stuff, though. Any suggestions? I am gonna keep tryin' in the future Posted by biggrime1 on Dec 8 AM. I just produce the songs. I have never thought about submiting my songs there. Very good idea. I will be working on that. I have to say I was denied by Pandora last year with my album Eden.
It realy bumed me out! My album was all over the net including Amazon where it sold really well,as well as being in the in the top three,for five months strait in both the country alt and Americana category on CD baby CD baby also featured me twice in there mailer.
My album sold moderately well on iTunes but actually spent a short period on the front page of there site for new arrivals. I reviewed right along side many major artists in my genre often getting better reviews then some of my favorite artists, and in a lot of different music forums and mags.
I promoted and sold my album in all the appropriate markets, yet still denied. I don't say all of this to brag, I'm saying that I was and am still baffled. I'm not sure what they wanted but it clearly wasn't me? You just need to go through their customer service providing the info that you have a CD for sale on Amazon, send them the link to prove it and YES it takes ages, even a support email could take 2 weeks to get a response and the entire process takes months. To tell you the truth I've never even heard of Pandora until now but I'm assuming it's a great avenue for exposure considering the dedication of a whole blog to it.
Melodies are not absent either, coming mostly in a GENESIS style with delicate synth and piano lines, a couple of tracks even contain some mellow acoustic parts. Vocals are not appearing much, the moments they do the band comes very close to the LE ORME stylings yet in a much modern way. Compositions are quite tight and an attempt on their own prog journey is made by Pandora with the min. They get too excessive at some point with the extended keyboard instrumentals, still this is a pretty good track with changing moods between haunting and calmer soundscapes.
Keyboard freaks will love this work, which can also please fans of Prog Metal and Italian Prog. Dense and powerful Symphonic Rock with endless keyboard attacks, that sometimes needs a bit of refinement.
Recommended overrall. Review by memowakeman Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. Once again, Italy shows us their musical catalogue is wide and awesome, that is why I love their music. The music they play is a nice combination of 70s progressive rock with a fresh and new sound from the 00s. In they released their second studio album, entitled 'Sempre e ovunque oltre il sogno', which consists of eight compositions that make a total time of 57 minutes. Actually, the album could be divided in two halves, the first one composed by seven songs, while the second one finishes with a long epic.
It starts with 'Il re degli scemi', which is a wonderful instrumental introductory track that produces a symphonic sound inspired by classical music. The work of the keyboards here is excellent, creating different nuances and emotions. Here I imagine this music could be used as a film score, because I can see images while the seconds pass.
Great first song! The following track is 'L'altare del sacrificio' which happens to be the shortest one of the album. Here drums appear with a solid and decisive sound, accompanying the cool keyboard passages and those nervous bass lines. When we less expect it, we are already listening to 'L'incantesmo del druido' which has a nice piano sound that contrasts with the powerful drums.
Here after a minute, vocals enter for the first time in the album, fortunately, with lyrics in Italian I say fortunately because I love this language, and I always prefer the bands singing in their native languages.
The voice is excellent, a perfect complement for the music, which has a nice mixture of some spacey effects, with heavy rock passages and the inherent symphonic touch. Before the third minute the music slows down and a soft spacey moment is offered; later it changes, the guitar produces a strong sound and the tune becomes a bit heavier.
This is an excellent composition, one of the album's highlights! After a minute we can listen to some people's noises, creating a kind of desolated mood, which is contrasted with the acoustic guitar sound that puts a sense of hope. I have once again the feeling that this track could be used for a movie soundtrack, there are moments that really work for it. In this track we can also appreciate the compositional skills of the band, because it is a complex song where we can listen to the heaviest sound of Pandora, and in other moments, to their softest.
Here the vocals return and perfectly accompany the acoustic guitar. A minute later it begins to flow, progressing little by little until it reaches a climax. At half the song there is a significant change, the music slows down and keyboards, acoustic guitar and vocals return with their soft and mellow sound, but it only lasts for a moment, because later the intensity is increasing once again.
Each submission is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. I already have a CD in Pandora. Do I still have to go through the submissions process for my future releases? Yes, you must go through the same process for each CD you submit. Pandora offers a bevy of straightforward functionality, and even more when combined with an assortment of lesser-known hallmarks.
For instance, did you know you can preview an artists entire discography prior to creating a station based on their musical catalog? Or, that upvoting every song will essentially leave your station a jumbled mess of genres and artists.
Ever feel like a station plays the same rotation of songs over and over? Upvoting essentially broadens the scope of your desired station, bringing artists and songs that would otherwise be on the fringes of your station into the mainstream and rendering the station more all-encompassing than it once was.
