Well, I promised I'd review this one, didn't I? Time to make good on it.
DA GOOD STUFF:
-Amazing sounds, as usual.
-Really, really good intro. I love the panning guitar sounds, and particularly like the dry->wet switch at about 0:14.
-I love the chopped vocals.
-Great break at about 0:39 to 0:58, I really like the arpeggios leading into the pad.
The unfortunate not-as-good stuff:
-First of the two major flaws I found in this, the transition at 1:24. You already know this, I'm sure, but I feel like there could have been some much better ways to transition. Or better, change the chords to be a more easily-used sequence. The vocals can assumedly be transposed or pitch-shifted, and so can the guitar. I'd also suggest some kind of sequence like what you did leading into 0:58. Obviously, it would have to shift into a completely different chord sequence, but it works a lot better than the crossfade, which seems more like splicing two different songs together (and only doesn't completely because the instruments are the same in each).
-The second major flaw is in the second section. It drags on for FAR too long with almost no variation. I generally don't like songs with lyrics for exactly that reason - no variation except in vocals. Unfortunately, this doesn't even really have that... I would suggest having more variation, extra tunes, some more "sparkle" on the top (arps), a different drumbeat every once in a while... for such a good opening, this section just seems out-of-place, dull, and quite frankly, pretty crap compared to the rest (not to mention the rest of the music you've put out), even though it has the great sounds from the first part. Also, the end of it, the delay and reverb of the
-The last thing that I thought I'd comment on is pretty minor. I noticed that the kick was really hard to hear in the first section. Might want to bring it out a little (very little) amount or give it more of a click (the Fruit Kick is useful for an accompanying click at low volume, I've found).
Overall, this song has an awesome first minute, but then just turns into bleh. I'm giving it 3 1/2 stars for the great beginning and the overall well-mixed, clean, and good sound. As I said, this is the only song of yours that I don't like as much. :<
Hope you can post something different like this that's a bit better! I really did love the first part of it.
