Hey, it's Christopher Tom here, bringing you the brand new single "The Ballad of Joey Domino" which is also my first-ever collaboration! I teamed up with Mark E., a fellow singer-songwriter and musician, to make this song. He wrote the chorus and really made this song what it is, so you can support him by checking out his work here: silvermediaproductions.bandcamp.com

Sometimes I feel like I'm alone
When I would let you go
It's like this every day
I wish I could take it all away

These evenings always come and go
Like feeling vertigo
It's alright, we're back home
It's alright 'cause we already know

In a perfect world, I wouldn't leave your side
But I've got things by which I must abide
So, just let me know that I'm on your mind
And I can sleep a little easier tonight
I can sleep a little easier tonight

I used to look at all the stars
Stoplights and passing cars
I used to just stand by
Now I don't dare look the other side

I met a shrink in my old town
He asked what's bringin' me down
I just said I don't know
It's alright 'cause he already knows

In a perfect world, I wouldn't leave your side
But I've got things by which I must abide
So, just let me know that I'm on your mind
And I can sleep a little easier tonight
I can sleep a little easier tonight

I'm coming home
Yeah
Yeah
I'm coming home

Hell yes!

Jesus, what a beautiful track. I mean I've heard the pattern millions of times, but them vocals. Well in. Could i suggest a drowned reverb on the harmony? The clean double track is a bit too well done, a 50ms of drift will fix that.

Two tiny faults, can't hear the bass and the mix is a bit too loud.

I love it though. It's a professional release. Right up my street too.

5 as always

pbj.

Going through your other stuff now.

Thank you so much! Yeah the mix is definitely a bit brickwalled lol, I should re-master it for good one of these days.

I like the feel-good indie vibes at the beginning. The vocals are smooth, sit well in the mix, and have great intonation. The lyrics themselves are also pretty great. They fit the tone of the piece very well. The pacing is a bit fast here, though. For example, you transition back into the refrain at 2:04 from the badass solos at 1:52 without so much as a drum fill. This piece also lacks a proper breakdown or re-intro section, which could’ve really helped provide some much-needed structural relief and flesh out this piece more. As for the mixing and mastering, the drums are seriously underpowered and I can’t always hear all of the background instruments clearly (such as the chords during the solo). However, I did enjoy the instruments, mood, and soulful character of the piece. Overall solid work! Keep it up, guys. ;D

8/10

Thank you so much for your great review - I'm glad you liked it! I'll try to keep your feedback about the transitioning and structure in mind.
