Well, I feel it's a really great addition to Marco's already strong repertoire of music. He has 19 currently on spotify ! currently I see 10k plus streams already. This song, #Saved alone already has about 5-6 k plus streams as of now! All songs are written and composed by him and produced by some of the best producers in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. I personally think that Saved is a wonderful masterpiece and one of the very best He has produced and written so far. Vocals is fantastic if I may say. The runs and adlibs really make it outstanding and different from other weak and soft songs in the market. Just listen to Mariah and Whitney, Celine, their songs have a lot of runs and wails also... that makes the songs interesting and not boring to listen to! if not u will fall asleep if u listen to just whispering and no high notes at all. Haha. so I guess to each its own la, some ppl like slow and soft songs, thats their thing. But many westerners and blacks love runs and adlibs, etc. It's just culture differences and taste, u gotta respect that. Well for this song, I believe it is inspired by the blacks and the westerner kind of music therefore it sounds very high class and complex, not everyone can take it in on first listen, just like a whitney houston and Mariah Carey songs. so overall I think, very well done, great job on this one. Continue to make music that u love and u will be popular ! Quality singers like him will last the longest in this industry and quality music will last the test of time. Just see la, who can stand the test of time later. I believe he can.
Although the music is well produced, the vocal performance does not do the song justice. There is a nice tone to the voice, but it is not utilised well in this piece. The unnecessary wails and howls really distracts me from the music.
This song has inspired me by leaps and bounds with his powerful 4 octave vocals that could be heard throughout the song, mainly from the chorus onwards till the end. In the bridge you can hear some of his signature whistles and if you listen closely enough, you could actually hear the low bass notes on the backing vocals that he did himself. After the bridge, those powerful chest belts, runs and adlibs on the last chorus knocked me out and sent shivers down my spine! When I listen to this track again to relieve those moments, I had goosebumps all over my skin. Simply breathtaking if you listen to the song closely with a powerful speaker or a proper headphone. The artist and the producer indeed have intended it to be heard this way to achieve the maximum listening orgasm. Truly a breath of fresh air and an inspiration to all the artists that come before and after him. Not forgetting also the message of this song that is powerful and very inspiring not only to Christians but also non Christians and even atheist that would go weak on their knees and convert. Thank God for this song and Marco Marcus for truly he is an artist unlike any others. His gift comes from a place way above- the heavens, from God. Thank you for this piece of blessing that was made for all of us. Hope more people would listen and be blessed and inspired.
Amazing and incredible work of art!! Simply the best local artist with a unique and soulful voice that could match the greatest out there! Simply unbelievable and incredibly creative and gifted! The song itself is crafted really really well and the arrangement is elegantly simple yet very effective to bring out the best in the message of this song and the incredible vocal of the singer. The song is about redemption and mercy from the divine and how God has saved him from his predicament. It is truly honest and authentic in every sense of the word. The genuine emotions that one could get from the song is incredibly inspiring and powerful to say the least. The production quality of this song is really good also without being overly synthesized or made up. It really stands out from the rest of the songs that we hear today. This is what we need. Thank you for writing this beautiful masterpiece! An incredible talent like this needs to get out there and be heard by many more people and generations to come! Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston would be so proud :)
