Fantastic! And I have to say that your accent here is quite interesting :)
Damn you. But thanks ;)
And good night!
Oooo...I love the emotion and little roll things in the piano, like at :08. The vocals might need some more consideration, however. Allow me to elaborate: first of all, I want you to think more about where and how you are breathing. At times, it even sounded like you were about to run out of breath and then had to force the air out (e.x., :18). It made what I think of as a sad piece filled with longing unnecessarily angry. There are times when your voice cuts off suddenly, like at 1:04, which I fear is also the result of lack of planning where to breathe. Your voice sometimes sounds rather nasally when musically it would make sense to aim for a richer, darker tone, such as at 1:43. This is especially noticeable on the high notes, which also come across as a bit forced. I might suggest having a professional evaluate your vocal range, if it's at all possible. Otherwise, I like the piano solo towards the end (even though it's not really a solo), and I applaud your continuous efforts at adding lyrics to your pieces. Keep it up, Ale! ;)
The microphone version of the piano versus the recorded version playing together makes it seem as though an electronical piano is out of tune -_-
It annoys me every time I listen to this XD
"The vocals might need some more consideration, however."
=> What, noooo? You caaan't be seriooous?
Well duh with the breathing, I even mentioned it in the descripton :p
But come on, 0:18 is a pretty bad example! We all know I can hold a tone for longer than 3 seconds (as I start singing at 0:15). I'm just not thinking about what I'm doing at all, and I probably was more focused on the chord shift there. A far better example of what you mentioned is 1:11 ;)
Also, while this is a sad piece filled with longing, take a moment and listen to the lyrics. Clearly there's a lot of regret and self-reproach in it. And listen to how heavy I'm playing on the piano at examplewise 1:23, does that sound like only sadness and longing to you? You're right about 0:18, but for the wrong reason, ahahahaha! ...
1:04 is the same as 0:18. I cut the note too early, but most likely, it was to breath in properly before a lot of air needed to be used in the next part.
=> Yup. I blame my dry throat. I don't know why that became nasal in this case, but I definitely had difficulty with the higher notes. Usually, while I'm not better at singing, I can reach higher notes with less issue. I would've definitely wanted this to be more rich though. The only high note that I managed to reach pretty softly was the one at 1:50, and even that one is too weak :(

=> Ahahah, funny joke XD Those cost money, and demand dedication :p
Thanks for the review! It's 7:15 am, so sorry for my extra load of sarcasm/bad humor!
