Pro General Comments: From the viewing of the title, "Where Concrete Meets The Grass" I was intrigued. In fact I had absolutely no idea where this song would go. Beginning with the first note, I had a feeling this would be good. From a sonic perspective, the intro is great and when the vocal starts it opens up to a whole new vibe. Great voice for this type of song. The listener can feel the honesty and pain in the singer's heart through his expressive and emotive voice.Also the 6/8 feel really works for me. I am a sucker for this groove. Interesting to me that the high hat does not drive the beat. (If I were to offer a suggestion it would be to allow the high hat to play eighth and swing the whole groove. To me its would be less stiff and have a cooler overall vibe. But that's my personal opinion.Typically this kind of song can come across as trite due to an overused subject but to me the distinguishing quality here is the voice. It really leaves me wanting to hear more. The emotion is just so real. Heartbreaking. Poignant. A real, gritty slice of life.Would love to hear this guy/band play and sing live.The lyric tells a great story. The arc of the narrative really works and the story is easy to follow. The lyric allows the story to unfold in front of the listener in a crystal clear visual manner. One can actually see this guy, feel his pain and frustration. Wow.
