music is good, and the vocals have a heavy phil collins type processing (the processing being heavy, not phil collins himself). Some may find them over processed but imho it works with the music. guitar solo was a little long... i kept anticipating more vocals to come in.. lol overall, good job :tu:

Thanks man! I thought maybe the guitar solo was going on a little long but it's hard to tell with your own stuff what works and what doesn't sometimes (at least for me). Good advice, I think I'll go back and edit stuff down and add the vocals back in at some point to wrap things up. Thanks again for the feedback

when you do lay the vocals back in, try putting a stereo widening effect after your reverb or if your reverb has a wide control, max it to widen the space a little...BUT mix it with the dry signal to keep them centered and focused.
i think the reverb sounds a little narrow and boxy as it is now. rock on!

I enjoyed this track, has a nice retro vibe to it. Some good tips from layzer that will help this track and yes the guitar solo is a touch long :) but it's easy to get carried away when you have a good underpin of chords and drums. Good job :tu:
