Thanks for sharing. I usually never commit unless people ask so here goes. I like the song good melody and chord changes and I like the harmonies. The one thing that stands out to me is the vocals are not popping because they are living to much in the frequencies of the mid range elements...bass and rhythm guitars..etc. (I am not sure if this is by design, if so disregard.) Keep up the good work!

I had a quick listen on my brand new phone, first piece of music i played trpugh ot actually and the mix came trough pretty wel.
One thing that stoode out straight away, is the presence of the harp like keyboard,my first instant was that it didnt sound natural, and i didnt get the contrast in depth/ placement in contrast with the guitar at the intro.
Personally, i'd a a bit more reverb and maybe do some subtle tweaksto get a more natural sound. And lower its volume.

When the vocals came in, they'd reminded me of pink floyd's david gilmore, only a bit to dry. But good job on that i guess! I love pink floyd..

But, after a while, it sounded like the volume of the rest of the track was pushed back a bit, did you do some fader riding? (Otherwise it's probably just my phone)

But ye, good job. Arrangements, writing and all, nicely done

Thank you Matt and Osmose for your time and your suggestions. I take this info and review my music using many of the tools I've learned at this site to improve my productions. Thanks again.
