I really liked the clean bits. I think you got a great sound on that.
I wouldn't mind turning the heavy guitars up, but then you might turn down for the effects.
The solo's are awesome! and the thing you got going at 3:15 is great too.

Thanks Zitto, buddy!  Yes , it was quite the trick to keep everything in the mix and equally audible.  I'm happy with the way it turned out seeing there is so much going on within one composition.Thanks again for the compliments

Hey Nice collab boys.

I like the break at 3.25, IT ROCKS - and great change after that, may be lower the effects a bit Fid.

WELL DONE

Thanks Denis and Cpbeats... * very glad you enjoyed the song......  I'm in the making of an agreement to have a few of our tunes played on air in Northern NH, which should be fun. Denis are you talking about the effect when the change ends? If so bud. that was a one time effect Byl used with FL.... but I do agree some of the solos are a tad high on the effect as well...
As far as the lyrics are concerned cpbeats buddy, Reboot  (440) wrote the lyrics and I sang em.
He has more lyrics that he wrote for the song, but it being a rock ballad we only used the first two verses
which have the most important meaning in the song
here they are... ~ Peace ~

The verses are well chosen, love this :

QUIETLY WAITING MOSTLY HESITATING

ALMOST SAID THOSE WORDS TO YOU


ALMOST DIED TO BE WITH YOU

SADLY THE RED TURNS INTO BLUE

There's way too much effect on the instruments in general...yet so well played, the rhythm guitar become sloshy and wet.
O! yea 3:15 becomes very cool.....still way over effected.

Hey you sound like our Denis! lol

edit: Your both obviously talented musicians because the structure and content are excellent....is the loss of quality in the tracks because of over effecting or because you've been sending mp3s to each other?
If it is you should find a better way of collabing because you sound like you could make real killa tracks together if it was not for those poopy FL effects

A great way to exchange .wav tracks is using dropbox, I agree with what's been said on the sloshy quality this otherwise very nifty track gets.

It's great when people can collaborate to create great tracks like this. Very well done! But yeah the quality takes away from the listening enjoyment.... Doesn't do the song justice!

Hiya guys,
 Yea 440 used FL for the basic structure with chorus in it. thats what we had to work with in the beginning. I went over it with him and he brought the effects down actually. The vocals I added I kept as clear as possible with a tad of reverb as you can hear and the solos ,,,well I placed the the sound of them in the foreground on the main solo and the background solos were of course in the rear but with a cleaner-less effect sound. 440 is very talented in composing but he  will agree he is still working on perfecting the sounds he wants. It's a perfect example of making sure you have your foundation clean before adding effects... because as you can hear this was not done with that precision. You all have very good ears to pick this out. I did my very best to make sure that all parts, although some as we know had too much effects on them,,, were still audible.. So, basically how I tried my best to fix this was using the vocals. bringing them forward and that way the  music is the background accompaniment  to the vocals. Anyways, from everything any musician creates or records we all learn and never stop.. thats what makes this site great!   Thanks for the positive feedback as well. 
~ Peace ~
