Very good, I enjoyed it.
Currently trying to turn noise into music. :neutral: Is boutique the new old?

This is very enjoyable. You've managed to capture the vibe very well. I like the mix too. There is good separation, and it sounds very authentic "late '70s", although at that time, I was stuck in the mid '70s (and maybe I'm still stuck there) :)

Good work :)

Thanks your comment. Doing covers has made realize the importance of small amounts of gain automation. For example, decreasing the gain on the rhythm guitars on the verse by about 1.5 decibels made the vocals more intelligible without losing the rhythmic impact of the guitars.

Regarding the vibe, I think the dry drums, especially the snare, and the chorus effect on the guitars in the verse contribute. On the verse guitars, it sounds like the wet amount of the chorus effect increases during the fast-strumming transitions. I'm not sure if this was automated by hand, an envelope follower, or something else.

Thanks again for listening and commenting.

Yeah, I can't play it either. When I try to open it in a new tab, it tells me "The item is not available due to issues with the item's content."
