Thanks Jim - just a quick write to fit the music no truth to the lyric.

Peter & Leon,
A good carefree pop feel to that refrain- I like the way you build with repeats on the chorus....the highlight for me is those twin leads.

Catchy song, guitar buried the vox but that can be fixed. Would like to hear a revision.

Nice song! It could be even better if you could mix the vocal so it gets more upfront. But even if the vocals are a bit in the "mud" it is easy to hear that you have made a great song!

Thanks for sharing!

Good guitar stuff throughout - the outro is especially nice.

I agree that the vocal needs a bit more clarity. The vocal frequency and guitar frequencies seem to be about the same place, causing a conflict...

An enjoyable tune. Glad to see y'all back in the swing of things.

Thanks floyd appreciate the comments and analysis.

Thanks Greg - the vocal is what you get when the guitarist does the mix!

Peter and Leon,

Catchy tune, and like the lyrics. Definitely think the vocal can come more forward just a tad—but that’s an easy adjustment, and then you’ll really have something. Very listenable and engaging. Good luck with this one!

All the best,

Deej

Bouncy and fun. I love the way the chorus builds at the end. I expected a fade at 2:50, but why cover up a perfectly good solo? smile


Listening on near field monitors and I agree.

The guitar parts are very good, nice playing! I also like the backing tracks. Just bring up the vocals.


Thanks Mario.

Thanks - certainly not one of Leon's most profound lyrics just a quickie to go with the backing.

Peter&Leon.

Very positive, light hearted song. Listens very well. Guitars are super!
Enjoyed it!

P.S. I read first two comments... about the vocals being buried a bit. I have very (very!) neutral headphones and it sounds good to me, but I probably agree that with slight bass coloring vocals can easily sink.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.
