“'Candlelit Wood' - Neil Watson (9/10)
Very original! Such a cool intro- the guitar, the lyric… lovely. I enjoyed the structure and style of the song. Creative, unique and poetic. It fits the mood so well. It's a very nice, simple melody… this is understated and well done. Great work. Beautiful lyrics. Very well painted and composed in a wonderful way.”

“‘Arran’ – Neil Watson (7.9/10)
"‘Arran’ is a nice song, not unique in topic or melody, but a nice comment on home and what it means to him...
While his rhymes are inconsistent, I think he did a good job of showing the passage of time and events while keeping true to the lyric and feel of the song. Nice job on that!
I like the emotion he sings with, and his delivery is sincere. The phrasing was good, and I know his ear picked up what rhymes it could, as he subtly brings out the rhymes in the delivery.
I can hear that Neil has music in his soul. He writes a sincere lyric, and the melody of ‘Arran’ really shows the gentle pride of "home."
