(No More) Happy Endings - Pidgeman & Truj
Gorgeous music! Love the guitar work and the hardcore retro (if you can call the 1990's retro!) feel to this, reminds me a bit of Marilyn Manson and The Prodigy... Lots of interesting elements in this, excellent work!! Keep it up! - DJ Frankie
Nice intro. Wow. This rocks out quite nicely. Dig the heavy guitars and drums. Really aggressive. Nice. This reminds me of the heavy stuff, I played in my youth, which is cool. Great vocals too. Thumbs
Forgot how good this track was Craig!! A proper power ballad!!!! Awesome work fella!!
Great song guys,it is so well produced and great to hear pidge totally nail it! Production is sweet as. Works on every level. Sweet.
This is just so BIG in my ears man , I love it. Great tune Here.....
The track by Truj is full of energy, big drum rhythms, and guitars (plucked and lead dist) are super! Over this you have put your rock vocals..soaring at times....edgy... harmonies so good...so well done!
This is really impressive! I'm hearing shades of "Rush" in this but that is meant as a complement. Very much enjoyed this fabulous and meticulously articulate musical production! -Mike
Just a great song in so many ways. I love your voice.

hey Craig, very pro soundin track here, guitar, drums & vocals all superb- RATED & recommended
Jings. I still like this one.
The intro reminds me of a well known track and i cant for the life of me think what it is ... Anyhoo i played this loud as requested and WOW this track is totally sweet!! this is how modern rock should sound like, almost like a new sound!! gr8 job xxxx
hat a force to be reckoned with when two of mp3unsigned finest get together! Is it just me or have you upgraded your mic since i last visited Craig? Your vocals are clearer and before they had like a "boxy" sound to them, they sound very clear and cut thru the mix brilliantly. Maybe its good mastering from Tommy but the performance speaks for itself! The backing track is brilliantly performed also and again the mastering is spot on! This thing is an ANTHEM! lol
There is nothing i could crit if i tried and i have to say i really wouldnt want to because this track is catchy and i really like it.
Best of luck with it you two, damn fine song and i hope to hear more soon! :)
back for a listen, this track rox!
really awesome job on this one amigos :)
Im not much of a rocker,but this is top drawer big chords, dynamic drums and finger shredding guitar licks .Nice One lads.10/10 R.
Great tuned my friend. Great guitar work. I don't jack .... about compression and the like but it sounds great to me. Nice backing vocals.
Bad Love Junkie
Hey, Craig. Nice to finally come and give a comment. I like the calm beginning. Then it turns into a mad transition to a heavy electronic guitar. Awesome job with that. I love the drums. Very good! This tune reminds me sort of like a Tool song. I like this. Lots of emotion already. And this early in the song, too!
Then we calm a bit after your voice adds to a power build. This is nice stuff, man. I think this may possibly turn into a favorite from you. Your voice goes very well with the guitar.
The structure is very well trained. Nothing seems out of place at all. The sound could be clearer but then again, I'm on an old computer. No problem there, man. The feeling I'm getting is what I'm digging. I wouldn't care if the song was faded, I would listen to it again (like I did).
Lots of emotional power here. Those vocal builds are strong. Good stuff, man. I loved it. I think that, yes... this may very well be my favorite from you. It's very epic sounding. I know the story all too well. You portray things in a way I have yet to see elsewhere, buddy. Fine tune. Have a rate.
The vocals really stand out on this track. The harmonies are nice and tight. great rocker and the guitar comes through the mix very well.
Too much single-band compression in the mastering spoils a good song. It's a dynamics issue I have but it's a good song and gets a rate dudes. Can't figure out why the drums don't seem affected by the compression tho. Hey it does rock good. Star performances all-round
Gets really good in the chorus......1:30-1:50......very short 1st chorus is a good thing........then a repeat second time around.......it's very american and I'm sure it would go a storm over there........very well done on it both of you. Kevin Mooney
Nice one you two! Its a solid collab you have going on here!:)
You guys work well together and Craig you seem to enjoy singing this style of music alot. The drums are tight man. Its the first thing that hits ya - sweet rolls at the start. Nice one - as I know you had probs with the last one at first!
Cool track guys :)
Rock On, I'm in total agreement with all below, especially with Brother Dan saying for you two to do some more. all butts pushed
jeezzzz...what a power house of a track craig!!.
amazing sound, those drums are awesome...i want em! lol. Great track....all sounds brill to me. Fantastic vocals...harmonies are spot on. Rated np
Heavy stuff! Like the chorus and the drums. I can hear some of your influences here.
Liked everything about the piece really. the intro was cool with the quick build up and then straight into it.... vocals are perfect for this, great job there Craig... the drums speak for themselves and if they are programmed, then they are among the best I've ever heard, cause I really cant tell if they are synthetic or not... super job, the guitars are perfect, the right tone and everything...
This would easily fit on a number of albums today... very current and catchy... heavy but not so heavy as to turn off the non rock fans... just a great job fellas all the way around!
...reaching for all the switches now
..Applies instruction 'Play Loud' Great intro with the semi acousti, then that chugging guitar sounds fantastic, infact the guitars throughout are spot on, solid drums, sounding very pro. I've always been a fan of your vocal syle Craig, you really do seem to be able to drop onto any genre (did I see Somewhere uploaded this week) I have to agree with other comments that your vocal style works well in this, although I will always be a fan of your 'pop' tracks. This has a very catchy edge to it, very singalong as with most of your tracks Craig. Truj has done a blinding production job with the guitars and especially those drums, solid track deserving of a wider more commercial audience, spot on chaps :)
Awesome opening. Great lyrics and vocals. Superb production. This is a real power crunching ballad guys, superb. I agree totally with Allan, Craigs vox really suit this harder genre. Great work from the pair of you. And I must say what a formidable collab you guys have going on here. An easy one for me lads.
The acoustic intro is laidback - and it is perfect. Love that chorus effect on the guitar - and talking of choruses - you have created a smokin' rock ballade here -
as good as anything I have heard in this genre . Great music.
Another great collaboration from both of you, the harder edge to the music really suits your vocal on this track, which are definitely one of your best Craig. Track has a great muscular feel, the drums sound great by the way. Quite a partnership you have got here potentially :)
I don't know you guys were so professional
and a powerfull rockers, I'll buy the cd.
All buttons pushed hard.
Great track guys. Good chorus, definite hook to it. There's no coming back from those lyrics is there :-) Great voice you have craig, matches the powerful band and all round power of the song. Top notch! Martin
Where did you get the drummer? Rockin for sure, Vox and music spot on,I am stealing a dl when you sell I'll buy hehe lol. I Digs big time.
It's BIG ROCK time! Powerful stuff guys metal pop I'd guess you'd call it, would have liked to have heard a solo but altogether a storming tune, beefy production and another great vocal from Craig
another cool collab guys...not sure about the big fade out on the vocal half way through....that didn't work for me...music was spot on every single bar...not my cuppa but it was well performed
great track! excellent performances by the two of you. wow!
A fine performance guys, this is excellent although not really my thing i cant fault the performance and songwriting from both. big thumbs up
Gday Craig and Tommy, wellll the first 16 seconds give no warning of the thumpingly big sound that's to come. Great delivery on the vox, well in sync with the also great lyrics. Loved the guitar work Tommy and the whole sound was nice and tight and as DJ says, radio appeal coming from this one for sure.
I think it worked out rather well :)
This is awesome! Excellent performances all around, great mix, great arrangement, and it really gets kickin'! Definitely best played loud. Very nice work!
Okay, took your advice and cranked it. Performance and production are top-notch, can't fault a thing with either of ya. There's a big niche for just this style of rock on the radio these days this would fit into easily - get it out there! Take a rate and a hearty recommendation.
My comments and suggestions are that Craig and Tommy do a lot more songs together.....:-D. You guys compliment each other really well. Tommy seems to bring out the "tude" in your vocals Craig and Craig brings out the best in everyone (though the T man doesn't need any help.) THis is just friggin GREAT!!!!....buttons mashin as and when they let me.
(NO MORE) HAPPY ENDINGS. This is the second collab between Truj and myself, follow up to the MP3Unsigned Official Chart No1 'On The Road'. Once again Tommy wrote and performed all the music and I wrote the lyrics and performed the vocals. Tommy is also responsible for mixing and mastering. All comments and suggestions, good or bad, as always are greatly appreciated. Play this LOUD!!!
Please check out my latest track, Misery Loves Company. I'm really pleased with the way this one has turned out, definitely one of my best yet!
Note: Same as always, going on the basis that a score of 10 is for a release level track with Bob Rock style production.
First off, let me say that Craig is a damn fine guitarist - for a long time I only knew him as a song writer but the more of his stuff I've listened to the more I began to notice smatterings of really excellent guitar playing all over the place. I was excited to see tha
At this point in time, I have reviewed getting on for a dozen Pidgeman tracks and discovered that this rock based musician is generally worth listening to. Personally I still think he is capable of much, much more but his catalog of tracks on Mp3 Unsigned (and Soundclick) will show a very competent musician and songwriter, sometimes let down by the equipment he is working with. A
First track out of the MP3 Unsigned bag this month is the indefatigable (Ed: wooahh Gilmore!! Big words!) Pidgeman. Since I first met him while reviewing Misery Loves Company (September 2007 Pidgeman has been a regular visitor to my review schedule so at this stage of the game I probably have almost a dozen of his tracks reviewed. Although there is a fair smattering of Highly Recommend
Craig Matthews (aka Pidgeman) has been a regular on these pages for the last year or so and is actually quite a prodigious musician and out of the wodge of tracks I have reviewed has done well in terms of keeping my critical beast at bay. It helps considerably that most of the tracks this UK based musician writes are good, old fashioned rock tunes and I am amazingly biased that way. Th
Out of the seven or eight reviews I have done of Craig Matthews (aka Pidgeman) one thing becomes instantly clear, I like this musicians style even if I haven't found a track to rave about yet. That is obviously just a question of time of course, and the right combination of circumstances, but I feel fairly confident at this stage that this is an artist who definitely has a Must Have track lu
I was, am and always will be a big fan of rock music, from the Beatles and beyond rock has always been a constant in my own life. Which, as it happens, is pretty good news for artists like MP3 Unigned's Pidgeman considering that rock seems to be his meat and potatoes too. Consequently we haven't had a lot ofg trouble seeing musical eye to eye and some of his tracks have indeed been standout, par
Babylon is Doomed? Fucking A, as someone once said. Don't know about you mon, but whenever me hear dat Babylon t'ing I think of reggae. Not something I would automatically expect from Pidgeman, an alternative rock musician from MP3 Unsigned I have reviewed a half a dozen times, without too much upset. Fact is, I do like a good singer/songwriter, especially when their chosen
This is an incredibly well structured song. I enjoyed listening to this track a lot and I'm really looking forward to the remake that has been mentioned.
First off, the production is as close to perfection as you can get in a home recording environment. The acoustic guitar sound is exceptional. Nice and crisp, clear as a bell but with enough low mid and bottom end to keep it warm soun
First track out of MP3 Unsigned this month is from yer old rock buddy Pidgeman. Regular readers will know the man and his works of course but if ya don't here's a thumbnail sketch. He's a home produced rock musician from Coventry here in the UK and considering that he is a home producer comes up with some very decent tracks indeed. Out of the last five tracks I reviewed, three go
Craig Matthews (aka Pidgeman) is an MP3 Unsigned artist you will be familiar with if you are a regular reader, and lets face it if you are not then I am talking to myself and that doesn't even bear thinking about. Having come from a lifetime of real world music, I have found I have developed a specific ear for what is right according to that world. It's why, I think, I am sometimes ove
MP3 Unsigned's Pidgeman had a bit of a rough time from me when I reviewed Wasting Time (March 2008) a track that I felt needed a lot of improvement - a fairly common thread of my reviews of this particular artist. Which is odd because Pidgeman plays rock of various tones, and he plays it well too. Where the wheels start falling off the wagon is when you add into it arrangement, pitch a
My final review for this batch goes to Pidgeman, who I've reviewed before when he collabed with electronica artist Destri! This track, however, is one he done all by himself!
This starts off with a drumbeat first, then the rest of the instrumentation comes in! The sound is very 80's, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on where you stand on the matter! Personally, I like the so
Third time around for MP3 Unsigned's Pidgeman, a singer/songwriter from the UK. The first track I reviewed - Misery Loves Company (November 2007) - showed that Pidgeman knows what he's doing in terms of performance and songwriting style and Can't Stop Thinking About You (January 2008) only confirmed that impression. Where things fell down in both tracks was in the final presentation, a
Well coming up here is my 3rd review out of the
people who first came into my offering post for a review. I have to say I’m
very pleased with the results so far. We have Pidgman’s latest; Babylon Is
Doomed?. So without further due to you all… Lets begin!
The first thing that gets thrown out at me is the snare.
Very powerful and full. I like it a lot. The kick has a nice pumpin
Next up we have a new track from Craig (Pigeman) called Babylon Is Doomed? which I am told he recorded from beginning to end in one evening, which only goes to show when the muse hits, go with the flow and good things can happen.
Craig Matthews aka Pidgeman is an MP3 Unsigned rock musician who I first encountered when I reviewed Misery Loves Company (November 2007). Nice track, as it happened, especially since I like the kind of rock Pidgeman specialises in. Like a great many of us, he has to deal with certain limitations about getting it all down digitally and - on both tracks I've heard - that home produced f
Next up is a track that has been doing very well on the site, 'Misery Loves Company' which Craig (Pidgeman) released a while ago. Commented on the track when it came out and stand by all my original views but will attempt a more in depth overview of the track.
Track is very much in Craig's comfort zone, a guitar led power pop/rock track, a genre that has always been popular in the charts (espe
good song and good sound, yout voice is like the voice of rush.keep on rocking.
Pidgeman is a new name to me, this time from MP3 Unsigned and has the singular honour to finally rescue me from the almost constant electronica/trance diet I have had from that site since I started picking up reviews from there again. Moreover, Pidgeman promises to deliver some of my favourite; rock, and for that the man is like an oasis in the desert. Aaah burt, you sigh, rock can cov
Collabs... the MP3Unsigned speciality! There's lots of them about on MP3Unsigned, from one-offs to collab bands such as Stella Polaris Project and Hare Of The Dog! This collab involves Electronica producer Destri and Singer/Songwriter Pidgeman!
I've heard the backing music by Destri before as an instrumental, and the combination of electro and hiphop sounds great to me! In this version, the middl
I really like this track by Craig, I remember commenting and rating it before, and rightly so. For a slow instrumental it has some serious emotive phrasings. Craig's understadgin of music and ear for melody shines through on this piece. An unforgettable hook is what makes this track different from most other instrumetnals out there. Craig weaves melody and structure around the central theme from s
Heavier than most of Pidgeman's other tracks this one caught my interest becuase of the distorted guitars and crip powerchords. Th eproduction throughout is very clear and the instruments sit nicely with good separation between rhythm guitar and bass. Drums sounded good to me despite some comments regarding cymbal levels. Last comment on the mix and the only part that needs minor ad
This evening I'll be reviewing a recent newcomer to mp3u, Pidgeman (Craig Matthews) welcome aboard. He describes his music as a cross between Rock and Pop. In my opinion, this track is all rock. He hails from Cheltenham in the U.K. and can rock with the best of them.
Good review to start off, a track I have already listened to and enjoyed a great deal, from an artist with a ever growing collection of very solid, well crafted proper songs. First thing I checked out when reviewing the song were the lyrics, they are a really quite strong for a song of this type, which at it's heart, is a song about despair. Rather than wallow in the misery though, the song offers
I really like this song so it's hard for me not to rate it on the high end.The lyrics are well done. It's important to me that they tell a story or make a point.There are two things I really like about this tune. one is the how it jumps into the third section after the second chorus and two, the key modulation at the end. In both cases the vocal is spot on. not an easy thing to do. it's hard to de
