I loved the intro solo. In fact, the whole feel of the song was very relaxing. The hardest thing that I find to "self-judge" is if your own song is "enjoyable" (ex. a song can be "good" but you wouldn't listen to it over and over for fun). For me, your song is definetally enjoyable because of its flowing melody. I'd give you a 8.5 out of 10

Like the lead lick alot..keeps the song moving along...the drums could fill out in places a bit more...the vox are good - they could be louder, and I think I would prefer a little less effect on them (they sound muddy in the chorus).

This is the type of song that should get radio play if produced well...it's catchy, and like Zach said, it's enjoyable

Song needs to be mixed properly, still rough around the edges but happy with it.  Have to live with this mix for a few weeks before committing to a final version.  Cheers for the feedback !!

it's got the parts
some good writing to build a song of consequence
kick drums seem jerky in places for the light rock feel
kick fits but but does help, IMO
drum needs some development
bass sound mushy, no punch against the jerky kick drum;
bass and drums don't sound as one

benchmark ... sounds like the supercomputing conference next month in Tampa .. who has the macho TFLOPs?  ... just kidding    Good song! Enjoyed  listening to it.

Cheers!  Song  is a bit jazzy with a very basic structure but thought the melody is strong enough to carry it through.
