    first impression:
    didn't like the separated piano sound at the intro.
    The vocals are interesting. I like different voices like you have.
    The song is actually growing on me as I listen.
    Good song structure here.
    I can hear all the different parts well, the bass sound is pretty good, I actually envy you that bass sound.

    Pretty decent effort all in all, I like it.

    I agree on the piano during the intro... However, it's a nifty effect during the rest of the song.

    Catchy...

    Thanks for the feedback. Hmmm - and I thought the piano intro was just too cool!

    Re the voice - I find it impossible to evaluate objectively my own vocal performance - I am too familiar with it I suppose - I cannot detach myself from it or imagine the voice belongs to someone else. But people tell me the voice is distinctive - it used to be a lot breathier but has gravelled over somewhat in recent years...

    As for the bass sound - I am actually using a soundfont converted to audio - the raw conversion sound is preserved - no effects, eq or even compression. I hope that doesn't disappoint! It seems to work well - a case of 'if it ain't broke...', I'd say...

    Cheers

    I'll second that about the piano
    The lead guitar sounds small and kind of boxy, especially in the beginning. Some tweaking might be called for there. The vocals fit in nicely(although possible 2 db too loud) and the drums sound good, even though the snare is a bit static. Bassdrum and bass go well together.

    Nice job

    I find the doubled ld vocal (or delayed, whatever) kinda distracting...over there on the left side. I'd also raise the vocals up a tad too...and the harmonies, while you are at it.
