Another excellent song Martin. I loved the melodies, lead vocal, great backing voxs, the nicely building arrangement, and the mix.

My only nit picks are personal and we all hear things differently, so forgive me! I found the bass part a bit low-end, and 'fluffy'. To mix better with the drums I'd have given it a bit of definition in the mids. I find the BIAB realtracks need some EQ to get them to sit right. (And - this is I know a very personal quirk and few will agree with me - a like what the BIAB real drummer does but I can't stand the sound of his kit!)

Very enjoyable, Martin, I look forward to the next one!

John

Good song Martin, Nice work, as I mantioned on the site. I would love to roll back the reverb a bit on the vocals, and let them come forward a bit more.

Great lyrics - nice song but I agree with Robh on backing off the reverb a bit.

Thanks

Mike

Thank you for your very kind comments. Glad you liked it.

I'm not very good at hearing the subtleties of the BIAB arrangements - I'm usually concentrating on the vocal. But now you've pointed it out I do see what you mean. Fluffy is an excellent description. It could do with a little more punch.


Thank you.

Hi Rob and Mike,

Have gratefully noted your comments and have re mixed it with the vocal a little more up front and with a little less reverb.

And you're both right - it works much better. Must post the new version soon.

Thanks guys!

Martin

Martin,

Really nice song. Just listened to it at work in my office on buds. I will have to listen again when I get to my home studio before I can comment on the mix. But sounds good so far!
