On a Positive Note
8 to 10 months of intensive global market testing was done on each song using multiple resources. This includes websites which market-test music for it's commercial viability with consumers, as well as sites which test in contrast to other professional song-writers all over the world (over 100,000 of them). All songs have earned their place on this record by consistently scoring better than 90% of other songs in this genre (mainstream pop/rock). 2 of the songs were licensed for use by numerous major network T.V. stations in the U.S. prior to the album's official release (i.e. they 'rent' the music to use in broadcast programming as they see fit). This album is very dynamic, and keeps the listener interested with varied flavor from song to song.
