I can picture hearing this one on the radio. Good work with the production mate!

Nice mix and feel to this one. Ever think about adding a B3 or maybe a accordion sound to the middle break?

I like it, sounds good, maybe you couls add some back vocals somewhere. I like the melody. I can see you have same problem like I have - we both need real drumers . Good job, keep rockin' and good luck.

Very nice, big sound with lots going on, but everything still nice and clear.
Spoonmans right it needs backing vocals, female harmony on the "aint that the way life seams to go " bit would sound really nice.
Its a good song well done!!!!!

Great quality recording!
i'm definately digging the song a lot.  however, if i were producing, i'd have arranged things slightly different. For instance (Again, this may just be a "me" thing):

*An Percussion break immediately after the first chorus, and a quick pause/build-up back into the verse.
*Definately a different set of soft-synths. i just feel the song loses a lot of its feeling with those choice sounds.
*possibly a supportive, very low-gain distortion guitar on the chorus. single-strum open chords first and final chorus, ring 'em out.
*Replace lead soft-synth with clean, finger-picked classical guitar?
ok, now for my critique. The lyrics are great, and really tell me a story. great emotion, and feeling behind them. but you really need to step it up a notch on the vocals. The autotune is way too present, particularly on the chorus', final note. I can tell you have a great voice. i'd just like to hear a more solid vocal track. And for fun, i toyed around with this one earlier, and layed down some vocal harnonys. they work WONDERS on the song. i'd strongly urge you to add them. All in all, the best song i've heard all morning :-)

I definitely hear where some backup vocals could help but other than that good composition.

the music is very good, the singing is extremely poppy and just hate the singing, even the lyrics you use are good, just the way that you are holding the notes is bad, and maybe even change your tone of voice but good song

This song is incredible!!  I would say that your singing is fine; I've heard vocals that have the same tone.  The way you hold the notes is the same as a few other artists, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.  I love the way you kept everything together.  I would try to get this aired!
