Review of Come To London
Artist: Owen Critchley
Genre: Alternative Pop

Really, really, really great guitar riff. The pulsing chord progression is very catchy and creates a wistful mood.

The voice and the background vocals all create a melancholy and haunting mood.

The chord change at the chorus is a great contrast against the verse melody.

The melody is solid, and the hook is catchy and fits with the mood.

The instrumental bridge is great.

Extra Credit: Mood.

Review of Come To London
Artist: Owen Critchley
Genre: Alternative Pop

great melody, great guitar, great song!
I love the song from the very start!

Hook: there are a lot of themes introduced throughout the piece, but they don't get lost like you might expect. And besides, that won't be a problem, considering the multiple listens this song merits.

Melody: Great vocal line. very catchy. Well-carried also. there's quite the dissonant sound near the end going.

Arrangement: the lead-out works wonders for the tune as a whole.

All in all, a great tune. I approve wholeheartedly.
