Lyrics would be nice.
The very intimate, close mic vocals need a little treatment - the mouth noises and essing - because they are in one's ear.
You might need a smidgen of reverb & a glue compressor over the entire mix to pull things together.
Love the 'tron stuff.

Loved the Mellotron sound! Agree with above on vocals.

Also, I would tweak the vocals and Mellotron volume down just a notch to balance the whole mix out, not too much.

Great work overall. Thanks for sharing!

Nice Mellotron Rick...
However...
I sure would have liked to have followed along with some written lyrics...
I guess I just like to see words as I listen to the vocalist sing them...
All in all I enjoyed listening to "Open Your Eyes And See"...
Nice tune.
