Livin’ Lovin’ Life I’m Right Here
2018 - Lonny Ray. This ten-song album is the perfect example of what not to do when releasing an album, especially when you are new to the music industry! First, do not write a song that contains lyric lines gathered from other well-known songs like in “All Aboard.” Second, do not contain a collection of songs that have the same baseline melody as this entire album has. Third, not every stanza in every song has to rhyme with the next or the previous! Forth, do not try and sound like every entertainer trying to make it in this industry! Fifth, make sure that your mix is correct and that you and your session musicians are in the right key! Sixth, perform with pure and raw emotion! Seventh, don’t ever—EVER—write a song about soldiers that you know nothing about! I could go on, but in other words, this entire album is a complete train wreck. Lonny Ray is clueless on how to be an entertainer. He is synthetic and lacks vocal range as well as emotion. Most of all he is clueless when it comes to writing a song worthy of any attention! Perhaps the worst song on here is “American Soldiers.” This song destroys the honor of those who serve and disrespects those who gave their lives for our freedoms! Do not waste your time on this one! -$
