3:04 - Sweet piano outro with lurrix


conscience shattered
into realms I fare
nothing matters
as long as I am here
I will try to make amends
with a demon
who wants to be my friend

you are not welcome here
return to the depths from whence you came
creator of the things I fear
I never knew we were the same

from afar this may look like a claw
something that you gaze upon with awe
I swear this to you my friend
it is but a helping hand
that merely wants you to come home


wish the piano was a bit of a better sound same with drums
eqings a bit off paino seems to loud
good sounding pattern the change with the lyrics seems alot better
vos nice and clear good job on them
2 3o ish there is to many sounds going on


hey there. Nice concept.

the song is really well structured. you have a great sense of when to do what to keep the flow interesting. I like the composition. your sounds seem kind of odd but i guess you were going for a owl city vibe which you achieved. so you got yourself a nice popsong here.

the thing is I think you didn't execute it very well. you mixing is not as clear as I would have liked. the squaresaw sound after your areal intro sounds rather dull and has no edge. you should probably eq it differently it sounds too harsh in my opinion. your pianosound is also kind of weak try to improve that somehow in the future through eqing, reverb, nore velocityvariance or other "enhancers". the thing with pianos is if you dont have a good sounding piano in the first place it's kind of hard to make it sound nice.
then there are your drums. they are way too static and synthetical. you should use way more velocityvariance in you programming for them. they also sound dull (especially the kick) and low-mid heavy as far as i can hear. the cymbals dont have the shine i would expect in a mix like this. try to boost them in the high frequencys (I'd try 8khz upwards).
I also miss some thickness in your sounds. your bassfrequencys seem to be way separated from the rest like you have a notch filter there or something.

well I wrote a lot of things to improve but overall the song is nice and I really like the concept you produced.

Improve your mixing and you'll get 5/5 scores :D

3.5/5 great song not so great production.

merry christmas! :)
