Love the swung 3/4 beat. Drummer is a bit out of time here and there. Great guitar tone. Vocals are quite expressive.

Actually the drummer is really quite out of time here and there. I hope you didn't record him last.

I really like the melody and chord structure. It's very catchy. If you fixed the timing issues it would be amazing.

Ouch, the timing issues make this almost unlistenable.  Use a metronome!  It ruins a perfectly good song.  Great vocals, chord progression, melody etc.  The track has an old-school Oasis-y vibe, which is groovy, but again, the drumtrack is really holding this track back.

I love, like theotherguy, the 3/4 time signature.  The syncopated rhythm behind the solo was awesome.

Again, fix the timing, and you've got a fantastic track here.

I think that you're aware of that the timing isn't good at all.. or.. at least I hope you are..  i hope u manage it without problems when it comes to live performances though.

but I must say I really enjoyed the song, and I see what you're.. "aiming for"..
i loved the vocals. very, very nice. u got two singers or is it you twice ?

Overall;    re-record, and upload it once again.  Great Song

over n' out

I thought 3/4 was lost and forgotten in pop/rock music.
Nice song and arrangements. Just record it with properly timing and production and you have a hit, for sure!

Wow seems brutal to say it again, but here goes:  timing.  That's it lol, none of my tracks are rerecorded ever so they are worse - as such, who am I to bit@h lol!

Loved the vocal melody and lyrics again, you've got skill.  The progressions are also catchy and the lead guitar, though low in the mix at times when i want it to be high, is nicely written (could be developed a bit though).  I think there are a few times when it could be dirtied up a bit, just a tiny bit, to allow the twang (at the end for eg - 3:57+) to express a little more emotion.
