Review 26/03/10- Small Engine Repair "Have You Seen What I've Become?"

Band Name: Small Engine Repair
CD Title: Have You Seen What I’ve Become?
Press Pack Included: No
Review: This track was submitted for ScreamLite Records’ charity compilation.
“Have You Seen What I’ve Become?” is a beautifully tragic folk number, with all of the key ingredients. The vocals are gritty and well sung, demonstrating a personal touch to the song while the guitar is allowed to ring and strings to reverberate without too much problem. The piano bassline is well mixed, not too loud in the grand scheme of things, understated but still playing it’s vital role. The string section that comes in during the chorus is again understated, but well put together with the overall sound of the song.
Overall, a beautiful track by Small Engine Repair with all the makings of a folk ballad classic.
