Good playing, but the mixing needs some work!!!

In my opinion:
      Drums are too clean and they lack low end EQ; 
      Cymbals are too loud;
      Overall it lacks punch and drive.

This doesn't necessarily leave the right opinion, so I'll finish by saying that I think you're work is pretty damn excellent, and this is no exception.

Trouble is, the closer you get to perfection, the more people start to listen to things other than the actual music!

I like this song, the overall mix isn't bad at all.
However, here some comments I hope they are usefull:

The guitar is nicely recorded. But..
the guitar sometimes sounds a bit metallic/shark through the way it is strummed. You could solve this by EQ'ing (reducing) in the 3 - 6 kHz range.

The drums miss some "body/fullness" in their sounds and the bass-guitar sometimes gets a bit drowned in the total picture.

There are some nice double voice pieces in this song.
Nevertheless I think the main voice is a bit too on top of the music. Adding some reverb (or more reverb but I couldn't here any reverb effect on the voice I must admit) would already make a big difference here.

I think you can make a much more open mix with some EQ'ing. The trick here is not to add frequenties but just to get ride of all unnecessary (totally reduce them) and "distorting" ones (reduce them just a little bit, like 2 dB).

yeah... well i wasnt too impressed with the mix much either - but its rare that i get a recording of my music with drums and stuff on it. plus it was all majorly rushed coz my mate had a deadline and not much time in the studio

Playing is good. The guitars work fine, same the vocals. A great great great solo guitar. Hats off!

Going with Wisdom when he said there is no reverb on the voice. For me its a bit too dry. The drums are played well but sometimes mixed too fat eg. the snaredrum. I hear many rooms in which the instruments being played, they are not in the same room, in the same stream. To get this experience needs a lot of work and I wish you good luck with this.

But....!!!  the song didnt loose the former character and I think thats the reason why I like it anymore.

Take care

in the studio
I listen to a song, just for the song first. This is a great song. The layout of the verses and the chorus are very good.  I would love to set you down in our friends studio because the only complaint I have about this is not about the music or vocals it's just studio stuff.
I have to give this a high vote just because I think it's a great song. It could be on billboards  top 100 easy. if it was done with an engineer with more experiance. tell your friend she's doing  a pretty good job.She just need more time. It's like any thing else in life ; you wanna be good you gotta practice.

The song is interesting with a nice acoustic guitar and vocals. The only point is I don't like the drums that much, especially the snare which sounds too dry to me. I would have imagined something softer, I don't know it's hard to explain a sound with words

Agreed that the mixing needs some polishing.
To me the snare should be sharper, the bass should have more presence,
The vocals are sometimes a bit too loud.
The drums are off tempo in the begining.

But those are only "technical" issues that can be easily corrected, what matters is that you made a fantastic song.
Good vocals. Nice
