but it sounds nice (at least the intro), the drums are too loud, and the noise that happens every 8 beats should be pulled back a little.
the strings are really MIDI, so make them a bit quieter.
i dunno what i can say about the compusure, seeing as it was garageband, and so you jsut mixed and matched the chords and patterns, but with some EQ work, this could be O.K.
also, there is some dissonance at points when the strings are playing (extremely loud, btw), so see if you can do anything about that.
i vote 5 on everything unless it's utter crap, and so you get your 5.
Listening to it while it plays...
I'd have to agree that your drums in the first half, don't go that great with the song. Around 2:32 I particularly thought the drums were gorgeous (the mute ones). Around 3:30, when the strings kinda stop a little and then continue, It doesn't feel right. I think it needs to flow right on through.
Just my opinions.
Artist to Artist,
Ah yeah, now I see what you mean about the strings. Thanks for the Review!
