/Review by Jon Wright

Overall Impression:
Daneka Nation revives a Country classic, injecting a shot of Rock energy into the tried and true Doug Stone tune "In a Different Light"!  Pleasantly overdriven guitars punctuate an inviting Country Rock soundscape as Daneka Nation lends grounding vocals to the experience, revamping the timeless twang of the original with a light dose of adrenaline-fueled instrumental fire - cleverly allowing listeners to catch the song "In a Different Light"!

Strongest Point(s):
The overall sound and style of Daneka Nation's rendition of "In a Different Light" is warmly engaging - the overdriven guitars and underlying Rock drums contributing a pleasant but punchy quality to the tune while Daneka's vocals retain some of the characteristic qualities of the original.  Killer guitar work throughout, nice tone and a compelling solo approach.  The vocal harmonies that support the main line work nicely and also add a depth of warmth to the sound for a more immersive listening experience!  Nicely done!

Area(s) of Improvement:
Just a couple of qualities distract from the overall experience - there sounds to be a significant amount of pitch correction used in the main vocal line.  Not at all a bad thing on its own, but some moments feel so strongly modulated as to draw disproportionate attention to the sound.  Similarly, some of the vocal deliveries feel a little underpowered.  Both elements could be improved by practicing better breath support, though the song works well as it is and is an otherwise solid listening experience!

Target Audience Appeal:
Daneka Nation's rendition of "In a Different Light" promises to catch the ears of all who enjoyed the original, while this version's Country Rock style is bound to resonate well among fans of the genre!  Engaging and approachable, this take on "In a Different Light" is just that - an alternate perspective of an existing piece of art, serving as a bold introduction and broad invitation to experience the considerable creative talents of Daneka Nation through the lens of something favored and familiar. - Jon W.
