What is left for me to say?

Maybe the mix has some hiss that should have been removed?

The vox are great, love the guitar and harmonium. The sweep and swells are ace. There's just a lot of noise that I personally would try to remove. I think the dynamic range is flatter than expected, the track seems to ride the mid range predominately.

I don't personally like the track as something i'd listen to. Though as a b side or filler it could serve a purpose. I have heard you make and mix better.

5 always

Thanks for the review. So, the hiss/noise is from the tape on which elements were recorded. If you listen closely the hiss goes away after the first half. The noise and lo-fi elements are very purposeful. I think the mix is pretty close to the sound I was aiming for on this particular song, so I'm happy with it. It's not meant to be clean and polished. The vocals and guitars were recorded using the direct mic on my iMac, mainly for the lack of quality it provides! I like to think of it as "Hi-Fi-Lo-Fi" piece.

Cool! I like this
