Hey check out my band. pretty chill music for the most part. some of the mixing got messed up but the recordings still turned out decent. Any general feedback would be appreciated (although constructive criticism would be best).

also make sure to check out the album art, just did it today real quick...its just a rough version

Very nice stuff. Don't hear much stuff like that these days, which is good. Not a big fan of the vocals, but the music is awesome.

Think - A pleasant song. Nice that the vocals have a wide register, gives the piece more variety considering the guitar,piano,drums are very repetitive. Vocal melodies are nice, but the singer does sound like he needed to warm up abit more before recording!

Not sure about the middle 8 syncopated section, doesn't seem to flow very well. Again here the vocals could be stronger.

Perhaps you could return to a final Chorus before the end. It would give the piece a more, perhaps on the last repetition of the chord progression in the 'ska section', have a little cadenza and build into a final chorus. Hell it would be a little cheesy, but if arranged correctly, it would flow really nicely!

ha thanks.. but im not sure what "middle 8 syncopated section" you are talking about. keep in mind i only know very basic music theory lol. oh and i think you mean reggae when you say ska...similar but different. no worries though
