Hey, it's Christopher Tom here, bringing you the brand new single "The Ballad of Joey Domino" which is also my first-ever collaboration! I teamed up with Mark E., a fellow singer-songwriter and musician, to make this song. He wrote the chorus and really made this song what it is, so you can support him by checking out his work here: silvermediaproductions.bandcamp.com

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone
When I would let you go
It's like this every day
I wish I could take it all away

These evenings always come and go
Like feeling vertigo
It's alright, we're back home
It's alright 'cause we already know

In a perfect world, I wouldn't leave your side
But I've got things by which I must abide
So, just let me know that I'm on your mind
And I can sleep a little easier tonight
I can sleep a little easier tonight

I used to look at all the stars
Stoplights and passing cars
I used to just stand by
Now I don't dare look the other side

I met a shrink in my old town
He asked what's bringin' me down
I just said I don't know
It's alright 'cause he already knows

In a perfect world, I wouldn't leave your side
But I've got things by which I must abide
So, just let me know that I'm on your mind
And I can sleep a little easier tonight
I can sleep a little easier tonight

I'm coming home
Yeah
Yeah
I'm coming home

Written by Christopher Tom & Mark E.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like the feel-good indie vibes at the beginning. The vocals are smooth, sit well in the mix, and have great intonation. The lyrics themselves are also pretty great. They fit the tone of the piece very well. The pacing is a bit fast here, though. For example, you transition back into the refrain at 2:04 from the badass solos at 1:52 without so much as a drum fill. This piece also lacks a proper breakdown or re-intro section, which could’ve really helped provide some much-needed structural relief and flesh out this piece more. As for the mixing and mastering, the drums are seriously underpowered and I can’t always hear all of the background instruments clearly (such as the chords during the solo). However, I did enjoy the instruments, mood, and soulful character of the piece. Overall solid work! Keep it up, guys. ;D

8/10

The tune is great! That 60s early Beatles feel! The vocals are too loud. The bass is at a fantastic level. There are little tweaks I'd do in this song with EQ and compression, and part of the song is a bit off with instruments, which I would try and fix. It's got a Strokes feeling, but with more instruments, which I can always get behind. Seriously, The Strokes have way too few instruments. The lyrics are quite good, not too cheesy, but just enough to make it charming.

Thank you so much for your review, I'm glad you liked this one! It's funny that you'd mention The Beatles and The Strokes since they're among my biggest influences! I see what you mean about the mix, though. I'll keep this in mind for the next song I do. Thanks again!
