(The harmonies are a tad "crisp" in my speakers).

Cool. Very catchy.

Floyd,
For this song I used the harmonizer from BIAB (I can't sing that high.) I used the 1 down and 2 up and took bits and pieces from each for the harmony line. I also changed some of the harmony notes to the way I wanted them by using Meladyne.

Some really COOL lines in the lyrics, such as "Don’t need candied promises to break your disguise" "I need the silence to watch the whispers creep". Movin, upbeat melody, nice vocals. You ROCK!!!

Hi Scott,

Your vibe's driving 'sense of purpose' really appealed to me. The sound that I'm hearing is crisp and very, very professional. The arrangement sparkles, your singing is excellent and sits really well in the mix, and the production is first rate.

Really well done!

All the best,
Noel

Cool song!! Nice, gritty rocker. Mix sounds really good to me....an in your face sound which matches the sentiment of the song. Organ sounds particularly great. Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Nice one.
I don't know about Reaper. Does it have eq filters? Maybe could use it to clear up some of the low end muddiness.
Good melody.

This has a big beat and plenty of enthusiasm to sell the message.
Oddly enough the enthusiasm seems to have translated into a lot of sibilant sounds - unusual for you - perhaps it's some vocal treatment that's creating it.
Terrific song.
