Good, riffs are cool, but please, vary stuff! The two acoustic solos are very similar-sounding, and indeed use the same kind of ideas each time (picked chords both times - necessary?), and coupled with straightforward verse-chorus-verse, it becomes a little dull after a while... especially when you repeat the first solo at the end, note for note.

Basically, you have a collection of good riffs and tunes, even a good vocal melody, but you need to spice things up. The bridge is somewhat better as you put some new stuff in, but other than that there's way, way too much repetition.


(sorry if this seems a little harsh)
