    Hi everyone,

    I used to be a regular on this forum, but have been away for a very long time. Was hoping to get some feedback on my first recording in well over a year. Much obliged in advance.

    Chris

    Love You More

    I guess this song didn't do anything for anybody.

    Critique? Comments? Please?

    Wow, a total shutout.

    Please can I have some critique of this recording / song? I would really like to nail this one.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    I'll take a listen: really tight, listening to it on headphones. Distinct instrument seperation, makes me really jealous that I can't get that with my current WIP (which I also have on the clinic here).

    Songwriting and playing is solid.

    I recall trying to get in and have a listen a while ago.

    I have big problems with Soundclick. For reasons unknown to me, I can only get to about a song in ten . . . most of the time I'm greeted with blankness.

    Hi Seafroggys, thanks for the listen, and for your comments. Much appreciated!

    Hey gecko, sorry to hear you have Soundclick troubles. The track can also be found here:

    Okay . . . I found it in Myspace ok.

    My quick thoughts are:

    All the essential ingredients for a great track are there. I like the treatment (in particular the vocal work, which is quite unusual), and the broad music ideas underpinning the track.

    While those ingredients are there, the mix is a bit awkward, and there are some things you might like to consider. For example, the stereo picture seems a bit arbitrary, and I'd be interested to hear what it would sound like if you brought things closer together. Have the lead vocal go down the middle, and put the extra voices around it.

    Similarly, the various guitar tracks could come closer, and not be so left ear-right ear apart.

    There is a slight 'grittiness' about the track (but that could be my speakers) that you might look at.

    But other than that, it's fine work.

    Great song, man, really interesting style.
    Agree with Gecko that the mix sounds a bit unconventional. I feel the vocals sliding from side to side and the one guitar on the left is really dominant. Takes some getting used to and it's not necessarily bad.There is a sort of harshness to the sound overall which could make it a bit tough on the ears . Love the harmonies and the vocals. Drums sound a bit low to me, but I think that's more down to my taste. Overall niice job and great music.

    Cheers
    Joe

    More drums, better balance to the guitars.
    Good song & a unique mix - just some tweaking & balancing to do.

    Really like this one!

    Love the spaciousness of the vocals, but as cool as they are, might they possibly be a bit too much in front of the band? I dunno, just a thought. Really cool and original recording.
