Really digging the feel of this one
Not often I hear this kind of mellow rock ballads on here. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful, and was really the highlight of this track for me. The composition and arrangement were also very good. Both the instrumental and the lyrics reflects the artwork very well.
However, though I love the idea behind this, it suffers a lot from technical issues that bring the score down quite a lot.
First thing I noticed is that the low end is very muddy and drowns out everything else. The main culprit is most likely the effects on the Bass guitar. I get what you were going for with that airy and wide bass sound, but you gotta be very careful when messing with effects at such a low frequency . It can easily end up sounding muddy and drown out the other elements. In addition to this the guitar is already playing really low notes and keeps competing with the low end.
The vocals sound good, but they are very off tune at times. Some pitch correction would have really helped, especially since it's difficult to stay in tune while sick.
There are also some timing issues with the guitar playing at times, especially during the climax. I do think a bit of chaos does make a piece sound more organic, but there still needs to be some consistency, or else it only ends up like sounding like random strums.
Really love your style, and if it was more polished this would have gotten a higher score.
