I like it!!! I hear the influences others mentioned, and would add to that The Cars! I think the vocal sound is great!! What kind of processing did you use on your chain in mixing? Drums also sound great!! Take care. Greg

As others have already said, good pop sound. Guitars and vocals especially stand out.

The ujam guitars sound good here. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Good song, lots of energy!


Thanks, Dave!

All the guitars sound great and that synth bell is lovely.
I'm very pleased with your vocals, wish I had such a rock tone.

Janne, you are much too kind, but I will take the compliment.

Thanks for the listen and comments, Tunemonger!

It's got a good rock vibe and your vocals are reminiscent of David Bowie.

well done.

Thanks, Cap'n! I happened to be reading parts of Isiah and thought his some of his words would work well with this song.

Indeed.

We are in agreement with the Bowie and Reed references.

Your vocal well delivers a clever and evocative write.

We saw NO reason to return to the vocal. It's strong and soulful.

The mix really sounds excellent on the monitors and sets up an impressive soundstage.
The VG guitars worked well ... cool choice.

Enjoyed it!

J&B, I always appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

Greg, I am not too savvy on the technical side of DAWs. But what I used was Waves REEL ADT for the vocal doubling, Nectar 3 for the vocals, and Ozone 9 for the mastering.

Thanks, David. I try to find a place for the UJAM VI, but they don't always fit and BIAB usually sounds better.

As soon as the intro started I thought...



Then as I kept on listening, that thought persisted the whole time.

This is an incredible production and you done a brilliant job engineering such a mighty sounding work.

Like floyd, the bridge was a showstopper for me. Awesome writing!

(Impressive)^n ...."Impressive" to the nth degree!

All the best,
Noel

Well done....a good, energetic rocker.
In fact, it reminds me the Cars during the 70's era.
I echo all other comments.

Have a great day....

What a unique and pleasing voice, Ezekiel. Reminds me of a better version of Ian Anderson. I like that subtle synth; it adds an important response to the vocal. Yes, I've had problems with the pushes, too. Good choice on the virtual guitars, but that opening one drops off drastically when the drums come in. Good song!
