G'day. What a great track ... love it. Excellent production, all tastefully done. Fantastic spacial ambiance .... a lot going on but never sounds cluttered. Great work; well done.
Very melodic. This song has a lot of things going for it. Thanks for writing it.
Just wandering around the site, and came across this little beauty, don't remember hearing it before.. but glad a I found it now.. it's a superb track and so ethereal and soulful.. love it!!!!
Wonderful, how sorry i am that i missed all this and how grateful the music is here...
This song is in a league of it's own. Very soulful and bluesy vocals and a great production. love the oboe sound. Bass and drums are superb.
Yeah...glad to click on the Featured Artist and arrive here...sweet, sweet vocals oozing stuff I dream about...spiritual battles...resonates with me too...mom giving a concerned expression for her own (prodigal) son?..that's a tough, tough place and the vocals air all that and more...the backing track is amazing as a composition on its own. So much here...Peace M.M.
(since it is my custom, I also throw a symbolic "Thumbs!" out to you...catch it on a cloud and know we're still touched ...through the years and all the tears...)
I love the musical ambiance. Your voice is perfectly placed within the mix? What was the inspiration for the song?
HI I'am NEW HERE MY NAME IS YOUNG EILY an inspiring artists getting some good recognition in the press[ http://bit.ly/15TOdpT ] leave some feedback good or bad!

Sweet sounding vocals, very nice track : )
very nice music and song here.....keep it up
Melinda love your music, I am busy clicking the download link.
Thanks for sharing your music with us. David.
Nice groove and vocals. Great job!
Lovely song, thankyou Melinda again for all that work those five years ago. While listening I browsed the comments - the old heroes Youth, ConKuss are there, the villain (...)and even the founder Stew - this mp3u site is fantastic!
awesome groove :)
I'm usually not impressed with this kind of sound but this is very impressive! The beggining really brings you in and holds you throughout the song! Good job.
What a voice
I accidentally clicked on your song and ended up listening to the whole tune... uh twice. I may end up "accidentally" listening to it again, later gator!
Lovely song indeed. I love your vocals and the eastern meditative sound. Brilliant blending of instruments and a topnotch production!
Well done :)
100th comment... BRILLIANT...still
Wow, what a voice and the track is so haunting and unpredictable. Brilliant work. Congrats on writing something so unique.
Subtle and beautifully put together with simply stunning vocals...have definately rated.
This has a fantasic eastern beat and vibe to it. The music is really beautiful and compelling. Vocals are awesome too. Definitely the best I have heard from you Mel (including the Stella album so that's saying something). Brilliant track. Will have to check out more of your tracks soon. Rated.
Beautiful, Mel. That note you were holding at 4:15...wow! I am impressed! Great tune, easily rated.
Simply haunting vocals! Sent shivers down my spine.
Thought I'd commented on this already, but apparently not :) So this would be my second listen, and still as evocative as before. You have a really unique voice that carries the tune well. Very 'shrouded' mysterious sound to the whole piece. Hope you don't mind if I nab a downloadio :) Rated.
Browsing the charts and happy to see you near the top with this. A bit melancoli to see Conkuss was one of the first to comment. The way you slide effortlessly through key changes is phenomenal! You are a huge talent Melinda Mohn! I'll give this a nudge higher on the charts I hope.
I think jonisavero sums it up; really cool mix
Amazing voice, great production with a beautiful athmosphere, rated!
Rated and what a voice! Great music. Love all that jazz :-).
Rated, this is excellent!! I absolutely love the reverb on this track, it gives it that haunting atmosphere. Your vocals are great, and I love the beat, it's hypnotic! This is exactly the kind of stuff I look for when going on little new music hunts!!
heeeey neat little tune ;)
Love this Melinda!Awsome smooth vocals.Like the overall tone.Very relaxing.You know your stuff girl!!
Great song, Melinda. Also great production and feeling. Jack.
amazing vocals,very good song, in all departments
wow nice work smelly
wicked vocals. really soulful. i like all the little percussive elements aswell. proper tune.
The beat is fabulous in this song, like a pulse...but actually I love every aspect of it....if this is electronic ambient, the last track I just commented on in this genre wasn't in the same league. Your vocals lift almost everything you are involved with tho...jazz diva!
Hi Melinda...love what you're doing!!!
Great chilled vibe that definitely touched a spiritual chord...I'm still fighting my spiritual and literal battles at the moment but this made me contemplate them...although I did get obsessed whether the instrumentation was Indian or Arabic influenced...lol.
Sorry it's taken me sooo long to get back but I've not been about for over a year. Glad I finally got back and glad to hear stuff that strokes my soul ;)
WOW :O) tony :o) xxx
Really like the feel of this tune.Awsome arrangement.I've said it before and I'll say it again.Melinda.LOVE YOUR VOCALS !!
i could definately see this playing in a nice shisha bar somewhere. Very chilled out.
i didnt relise you had another page,better late than never:)great track vocals just class as always,nice wee breaks on the bottom end,got a turn of the century mid west america type vibe (shawshank redemption),with a mordern twist,great piece of music,
This is a good one, kinda has a DnB sound to it, didn't quite catch everything you said, nice and jazzy which is your thing so DUH lol, could use some piano unless you didn't want any, all in all it's a good song, rtd!
I immediately like the kick. Nice and poundy. The beat is a very nice steady rhythm. Awesome tune going on here.
I got some good ol' spiritual take on things. This song kind of pulls that out of me. I can see where you were going with your song.
The wind instrument is very soothing and nice to hear. I love that sound :D! Everything sounds great. I like your voice too. Sounds wise and full of experience. A confident sound.
Fantastic song. Very pretty and magnificent. It definitely should get a rating from me. By the way, I'm sorry I didn't comment on your song sooner. Anyways, have a great day and good luck with your works! :D Rated.
Back to this delicious sound, been spending some time on your page and feel like I just got a slap around that face to say 'wake up' This is just my BIG fave :) oh god, I have been reborn.....
hey melinda thanks for commenting on my work. this track is really badass! i love ambient stuff-it always reminds me of some cool looking dude in a slow motion movie seen haha. the vocals are really smooth and i love the hypnotic beat. i don't know alot about this genre but i'll definitely be looking into it more now that i've heard tracks like this. :) keep rockin!
As an introduction to your music this piece works amazingly well on every level. Containing several interweaving layers of shared emotion, over a landscape of beautifully crafted and sultry sounds; Jericho Road is more than enough to get me fully hooked. The oboe is a beautiful accompaniment to your haunting voice. I guess most of us have been along this road at some point in our lives, and it is good of you to share this particular vision with us.
Oh! This is cool!! That's a cool beat that you got. It does go well with the pretty sweet guitar and lovely vocals Melinda! Even though I read your track comments about the instrumentation, it really works out and blends well like Riddle states. You also just can't go wrong with an oboe lol. And that I love songs about battle. It's passionate.
hey i just linked to this from a comment on the msg board, what an amazing track ! this is just flowing away and it is having a positive affect on my aura - now it has finished but it remains, fantastic piece!!
What a great, smooth track. The drum beat under the vocals compliment it very well.
The vocals are fantastic. Some great instrumentation here as well, this creates a powerful atmosphere. Great work.
Hi,This Is Great, Love the hugh sound,the blend is smooth,Vocals spot on.
lush accompaniment, exotic melodies, outstanding vocals. Excellent composition and an inspired performance, well done Melinda!
beautiful expression of emotions... your music really has something 2 say. besides your voice, besides the music, besides everything... this is what all artists are trying 2 achieve. emotion in motion
A beaut for sure. Some very nice jazzy touches girl. Rated for sure. You got a fab voice
This is fantastic! Powerful, moving vocals that go right to the core! Great production. Very atmospheric in an eerily addictive way. Lovely solo. Rated.

PS Thank you so much for your kind comments on my Ghosts track! Much appreciated.
Late to the party again! Melinda - truly excellent song, the bits I liked.. the whole atmosphere created, good use of sounds which blend together well, cool chord changes (seem to have stopped just now), there's my favorite on first listen, when the note on "Jerichooo" blends into the oboe.
Anyway, you know it's a fabulous song already (and look! a ConKuss comment) so well done you and I hope your son is happy to inspire or provoke more music out of you as life goes on.
Wow . Super track. Loved it . Cant fault it.
Can't believe i've missed this before now.
Top marks from me.
ah i c u reuploaded ur trax! k first track i'm gunna listen to of urs. now to the track...
Sweet pad (gothic guitar) in the intro with nice layered perscussion. I like also the way u panned them, very cool.
Now ur voice comes in and its sounding soothing like always. I'm really liking the lyrics, its like something the bible would say.
1:34 the instruments are taking truns layering in with there solos. very real sounding. wow u actually but an oboe in here? sounding cool almost like a clarinet thou cuz oboe sounds more, iuno how to explain it. but nice melody line.
Well u brought back my Christian memories with this track and for some reason i'm thinking of a band playing at a church and u singing, lol.
Well nice clean chilling track, enjoyed and deff deserves a rating.
still as stunning as ever!!!
Dark and flowing, just great. Very good vocals and a nice background.
Now this sounds good and a whole lot more - clarity is superb! Agree with RDM about the dark mood, along with the rate button getting hit in a sec. Just a lil bit jealous now...
Nice cool flowing rhythms and than some nice vocals come in really give uit a hot steamy atmosphere....Very cool track! Dark smokey hot and definatly worth of a rating. Like it!!
Love the melody and your vocals are amazing, would love to hear you clearer, the way you eminate pure sound perfectly on key in this hipnotic love is wonderful... waiting to hear more
bonjour mon amie!
Merci pour votre critique, J'aime le Melinda Mohn, c'est tres bien!
I'll speak in English now as its getting hard, i do apologize, i lived in France for a little while and thought id shock you.
Thankyou for your kind review.
One question though, what does the rate mean, and is their an overall score?
Im a little confused.
beautiful, nice easy feel- my Dad was a jazz-head so it's in my blood too!!! Keep it up...
thanks for my review hunny. love your music, it's right up my street.
Wonderful, so liquid. Love the far eastern feel.Rated
you know ive always thought you have sounded alot like someone and it just struck me.. Toni Braxton! Thats a complment by the way just i case you dont think so! hahaha Well anyways back to the track!
Stunning vocal performance as always Mel and when you sing on the road to Jericho i get shivvers up my spine its that good! lol Nice little loose ....y drum pattern but one other thing appart from you vocals that stands out on this track is the horn or brass or whatever the hell you call is very well played and fits the track like a glove! Ok ive read your artist comments and its an Oboe! lol
Great track Mel with stunning vocals and a funky ass beat!
Best of luck with it!
Awesome track with an impressive and intense message! Love the eastern touch in it (sitar and melody line) and your vocals and the oboe are just wonderful. There's also a powerfull addictive note in it - the more I listen to it, the more I have the impression that I'm drowning. Simply outstanding! Bravo!
The vocals sound great on this track. very haunting. (thanks for commenting on my song Step Back)
interesting intro with the cool indian sounds in the background. Again those smooth vocals. The production is top notch. beautiful.
great song. Its very different to what i listen to but really enjoyed it. Very chilled too.
Very enjoyable song with a lot of dramatic impact. You're a great vocalist!
This is excellent song - great vocals (obviously), great arrangement. The word "prayerful" really fits for it. Pro work:)
Stunningly haunting intro... great... I see aswann already used haunting... stunningly... hmmmmm.... inspired. Top-notch musicianship creativity and recording q. Please have my best rate!
Love this track. Beautiful haunting vocals, love the forward motion and the memorable moving solo. Excellent work.

My first time on your page: I Love it!!Nice Chatting with you too! I love Jazz!
Wow Melinda, Sexy, Sexy voice. One of the best voices I've heard on this site. Very hipnotic, trace like. Very enjoyable listen. especially that voice of yours. Rated, Nom, and rec. PS Thanks for your nice comments at my site. Dan E. Peck
Christ, this makes me feel like the amateur I am. The arrangement is *fantastic*. Flawless, girl, flawless.

You sure have one sexy jazz voice.I love your delivery. You sing like an instrument solo. Mile's phrasings and Jonie's grace.

thanks alot for the feedback, you have some amazing stuff here, hard to comment on which is the best like them all , you have a great vox too!
How did I miss this? It is fantastic!You have a wonderful voice and very commercial too.A sultry sound with spot on production and a classic feel to it too.Melinda, I am impressed it reminds me of something Youth may do ( found on this site)but that no way detracts from your great performance.rated and nominated
btw Went to Seattle to see relatives (Queen Annes) and could live there tomorrow!
This totally stands out as something unique. Your voice is beautiful and smoky with that real sense of passion in your delivery. Musically it's extraordinary and very well produced. I reckon I'm only repeating what everyone else has said here....lol...Cracking piece of work and a wonderful voice.
wow, you really have the right voice for them jazzy tunes.. very well sung. Good song also, love the dessert-feel it evokes.. good allround. Accept my rating
A different class! Top notch vocals. Rated and Reccomended, Johnny
Damn out of Nom's for this week.
This is a super track Melinda, really a top notch sound/production and vocals are superb and nicely haunting. Sort of a classy Roxy Music feel. Really enjoyed this song, giving it a Rate for sure.
Bonjour, What a great listen Jericho road is. I wasn't sure of it at first because of the 'funky-ness' it starts out with but all doubts faded away when I heard your vocals. Like the song and really like (and agree) with its message.
Hi Melinda. Thanks your kind comments on my recent official No1. It wasn't until I heard your music that I realised just what high praise that was! You are absolutely superb!
- Pete Vines
Can say nothing beyond rated and d/l'd!
rated for sure and nominated as this is just class all the way!
well... this is certainly a step beyond just good isn't it! fabulous and so original too... just keeps you listening and wanting more... great arrangement and delivery... freaking love it... your voice is amazing !
holly molly this is class. Got that wonderful voice out again (it was that voice from stella polaris that lured me here by the way!) like the instrumental, the beat fits it like a glove with the feel. It's really warm and lovin the oboe, can't fault it, its been well produced aswel. Impeccable (... /scroll down/ ... yep, looks like that one hasn't yet been used.)
'soundscape' that's a great way to define this. rated!
Very nice piece - great vocals and love the oboe - it's so well placed in the mix.
Your voice is superb! The vocal style reminds me of Khan from Metal band Kamelot, worth checking out. The track itself conjures up images of a Middle Eastern journey accross the desert.
beautiful track !
Superb vocals, arrangement, playing and production...the actual song has a dreamy quality and I really enjoyed listening!R. Kevin Mooney
You really must kick me in the pants & back into your direction more often - this is STUNNING !!!!!! Love & Hugs, Clive ;)
Beautiful track Mel, the production/recording on this is simply outstanding, I have no idea what your equipment set up is but you use it well, your vocals are like velvet and sit on the mix perfectly, rated.
Melinda.........How the hell I missed it I don't know.
Nothing else to say except one great English word: EXCELLENT...........
an absolute gem of a song, everything in it is just beautiful.
wow, this is really so full of ....that ineffible quality.. stunning just love the feel - i shall return
really nice vocals :) very emotional :)reminds me a bit of shirley bassey, could imagine this in a bond film :)you got a very unique sound, hard 2 find that now days. really good track well played
what a great track. loved every second.
You have such a lovely soulful voice, so smooth, and the track is really nice and chilled, great vocals, lyrics music, can't fault it atall. Rated and nominated
thanks for the kind comments all - this one is close to my heart...
Another top track from you Melinda, lovely moody musical soundscape. And the vocals are really top notch, liked this a lot. ONAGER
Well, I miss the trumpet-- OK, not really! Just kidding. I love the vocal work here.
rated as well!! :P
Ok so this one took me back to a song I absolutely loved by an 80's group called Yello. They had Shirley Bassey sing on a number called Rythm Devine. Your voice is very very similar and velvety! Outstanding!! :P
Aah, those eastern influences. Just my cup of tea - what is is about the pentatonic scale that turns me on so much? I dunno, maybe it's best to not ask questions like that...
As for the track itself, I've got to say this is simply beautiful - your vocals are a dream to listen to, they seem to slide over from the speakers and caress my ears.
Musically too, this track shines, especially at an ultra-loud volume. Crisp and clear, everything is just at the level it should be.
Impressive work, Melinda - I'll be sure to return to check out more at a later date. Rated.
Deffo my favourite so far Melinda. A nice and chilled soundscape.
