Piece Comment

Review of Barry, Bob & Me

This is a great piece! I love the voice, the premise, and the pacing. The commentary moves from broader, philosophical scale to a focused scene and back to philosophizing, and remains clear and easy to follow the entire time. It's personal but has plenty of elements for a wide variety of listeners to connect with: While it's primarily about writing and the creative process, it's also about role models and finding our own personal style in whatever we do. The music matches the voice well. I might have chosen something less obviously "writerly" sounding, and at some point the music's constant presence became slightly distracting. But these are small, highly subjective comments in an overall excellent production.
