Pro General Comments: Max, This was a difficult song to evaluate.If i had to describe it as a color it would be red,solid red from beginning to end.There were no other shades or colors involved in the song.That's why i chose fire storm as an appropriate title. The energy level didn't drop from the downbeat.The loudness meter stayed in the red throughout. This type of song would be great to use in a short scene in a movie where lots of frantic action was taking place such as car chases and violent fights etc. Music supervisors look for contrast in tempo, energy, instrumentation, arrangement, sounds, effects. The only variation came from the lead guitar playing various melodies which were good. The length of song was good for commercial radio. I was waiting for a part B to show more color and contrast but it never materialized. For what it is I can see this being used in ringtones,commercials, advertising,background music in movies and TV, segue way music, sports, exercise workouts etc.There should be plenty of leads in Broad Jam to pitch this. I'd like to see you experiment a little more and get out of your comfort zone. Take a few more chances musically. Don't play it safe...safe can be predictable and predictable can lead to complacency with your listener. Keep them guessing. Be surprising. You have the skill.

Quote From Pro: Max Quaini is a rock and roller pure and simple. His love for rock music shows in his guitar playing virtuosity. His music is high energy and very commercial.

Pro General Comments: these are the key words that this song brought to my mind as i listened...attention grabbing guitar based rock instrumental aggressive rhythmic pulsating toe tapping driving edgy gritty melodic positive spirited vibrant bouncy bright lively energetic pounding percussive rousing animated rocking loud. This song is perfect for corporate advertising commercials mall music ringtones road trip music film trailers soundtracks opening and closing credits movie and television featured instrumental fashion show game show rock night club casino concert. I would be surprised if this instrumental wasn't used by a music supervisor or signed by a music library or placement company.

Quote From Pro: I will not be surprised to hear Max's instrumentals in movies television and commercials in the near future. He has the talent to compose a very commercial catalog that music supervisors will be happy to license.

Pro General Comments: FYI -I don't comment on instrumentation as my expertise lies in overall vision, marketability, lyrics, hooks, etc..Good melodic opening, mysterious, you lead your listener into the song. Vocal has a lot of empathy, character and really helps to sell it. Always a good idea to have such a universal title/hook which can help make it fit into a variety of media uses. Your arrangement sense is very tasteful and effective and supports the song. Pre chorus is dynamic and intense but could possibly build a bit more melodically to the chorus. The chorus is great but could really soar with just a bit more melodic build, if you really want to maximize your hook. It may not need a lot. The ear seems to want to have something extra underneath.Lyric starts off with an interesting idea. Rhyme scheme works well in your hook like it should. You have a good use of rhyme. You might want to steer concept towards the idea of a positive legacy- in a few choice words, which you seem to do- but if you emphasized this a bit more- it may be a more easy sell. (FYI-It's very helpful to post your lyric - when asking for a critique...) "In silence we dream of what we could be"- perhaps a more visual word than silence would paint the picture more. (in darkness? Etc..) "Your footprints, impressions left behind"- good use of visual lyrics.

Quote From Pro: Anthem-like, melodic track has a heroic, mysterious feel.
