Unlike other song critique services, we not only provide you with a thorough, comprehensive evaluation of your song, but we also give you specific, actionable tips for how to improve it and the opportunity to tell us up front exactly which aspects of your song you want feedback on. The result is a critique tailored specifically to what's most important to you as a songwriter, ensuring that you get as much bang for your buck as possible.
