Here's a new song by me. It's one of my better ones. I'd really appreciate listens, likes, feedback, opinions, etc, I'd like to know if it's a grower and if it leaves a good first impression. Chemeleon

i'm intrigued ...
seems very fizzy ; i'd experiment with rolling off quite a bit of the top end ...
speaking for myself , that causes early ear fatigue , and makes for a hard listen ...

it needs some break up , dynamically ...
there are spaces between the notes that need to be exploited ...
the vocal needs some protection from everything else you're doing ...

shows promise ...

sounded like a bunch of random, heavy brickwalled, distorted noises.
stopped listening after a few seconds. sorry. :shrug:

Thanks for the feedback. I think I've solved some of the dynamics / distortion problems, let me know if it's any easier on the ears (knowing soundcloud, you may need to clear your cache to hear the new version).

Edit: My bad, it's here:

My mastering technique is pretty much "push everything to the max, run it through a maximizer". I need help achieving the same result but with less distortion. I like the 'virtual sidechaining' effect you get with a maximizer and finely tuned eqs.

As for rolling off on the top end, what specific track is causing you fatigue? Hi-hats, harp, etc? I find it hard to tell after the 200th listen haha.
