    Very impressive! A very nicely done song for your first one? I'm guessing it's not your first one, maybe the first you've posted here....I think it's mixed very well. I'm others will have some more detailed reviews....but it sounds very nice. IF i can say one thing....i'm not to crazy about the sounds of the cymbols from you your drum machine. The lyrics and back up vocals are very nice and clean. A great job!!

    I'd give it some stars if I knew how to?!

    Thumbs up

    I like this song and mix a lot. The only real glaring thing, as Jason pointed out, is the cymbals. In particular, the hi-hat (to my ears at least). The drums definately sound better in the verses when they're not as forward.

    Reminds me of Springsteen + Pearl Jam's "Long Road". I like it

    nice vocal sound.. good song.. the cymbals hit strange.. maybe less would be better.. too much china.. the highhat doesn't sound like part of the kit.. wasn't crazy about that direct sounding guitar, but it sat well when everything else came in.. nice song! good vocals..

    elephant!!!!!!!!

    Thats quite a good song you have there.
    The vocal carries you away
    Other than the drums, the mix is sweet,
    Good vocal and instruments played well.
    Glad I found this one

    Thanks for the great song

    Hey man,
    Glad you got things worked out at NoWhere....

    The vox is great...vox harmonies are awesome...
    the drums could come forward in the mix...I ain't gonna nit the cymbals because they sound a hell of a lot better than mine...

    Bass could come up in the mix.....but I must be bass deficient in my ears because everyone says that my bass lines are too hot...
    so...never mind

    The tone of your Fender is very cool...clean electric...I like it man...


    Musically..I thought the intro was too long.
    Once you got to the 1:47 or so.... on the upbeat man...I was hooked...
    but it took quite a while to get there...ya know?

    Really good song man...
    I am saving this one to my HD...

    Take it easy man,
    Joe

    I want to thank everyone for taking the time to comment.

    I'm going to be recording with prop'heads "reason", so hopfully the drums will sound better in the future (there's no way I could get a drummer in my apt.)

    joro, about the intro, sometimes when I listen, I do "look" for the vox to start earlier, and other times it sounds fine the way it is

    good point

    Nice song and mix. Nice arrangement with some well thought out effects. Good vocal work.

    Just fix thos drums. Mainly just better samples.

    Nice work.
