Love this show! I have no musical talent, but I love music and I enjoy watching these talented songwriters go through the process of developing their songs with seasoned producers and musical artists.
This is such a fun show! I wish I could write music so I love hearing them just go back and forth and riff off of each other. They are truly talented. The process is amazing and they've come out with some great songs!
Best show on television, there is absolutely nothing like it. Fantastic.
The best thing about this show is the way all the producers are so supportive of each other. It does not feel like a competition at all. My favorite show!!!!
I am addicted! Love the show and its format. The professionals are great! The fact that the artist picks the song(s) is my favorite part!!
Love this show, the judges are hilarious and kind <3
One of my favorite shows right now..I have a couple views on how it could be better but ultimately I am really enjoying the concept... especially how the songs are ready after the episode to hear! Very uplifting and inspiring the songs are great too I hope this show continues to bring more great writers to the spotlight.
It's rather disheartening to see that the original songs written by the contestants are barely recognizable after being converted to be "compatible" with the popular artists in each episode. In my opinion, music should be up to the original artist, not what the producers want. The fact that the phrase "It's a whole different song" is said regularly in the show shows how much change is made from the original song to what the producers think the popular artist would like. This show probably doesn't give underground music artists much hope.
I have watched the first four episodes and enjoy the show. Reading some of the music critics reviews has been educational, though several sound jaded. While the show may only represent a middle-slice of the songwriting process, it's still interesting and entertaining.
The stars that Adam Levine and company have recruited to an untested, new show are pretty big deals in the hit music world, as are the producer/ songwriters on the panel. (Admittedly, I knew nothing about any of them, but they have had great success in the music industry in different genres, working with big names.)
Some criticism is aimed at (1) the level of full production that the songs come in the door with and (2) the often-extreme changes that happen in the collaboration sessions with the producers. While I appreciate that the budding writers seem to get steamrolled by the producers, it strikes me as likely close to reality. If you aspire to enter the world of "the commercial music industry," you'll need to be prepared to lose a good deal of creative control over your original song.
It would be interesting to learn what credit the "contestants" receive when the songs are published and whether they had to sign away all future rights and royalties. I expect so, as that may be part of the reason Levine was able to lure the artists he did. That part is a bummer, but I suppose the idea is that this exposure helps the writers potentially get a bigger break in their careers. ("Think of the exposure you'll get, kid!)
It's interesting television and I'll keep watching, even when I don't know much about the featured "star" guests. Good job so far,
