So this is a song my buddy and I just recorded together. We had about an equal amount of input into the recording and we had a lot of fun with this one. The Green Machine and yes the name comes from the novel Dandelion Wine.

wow. first off, let me say that song sounded great. every part in that song sounds very interesting and unique which caught my attention. what i loved most was the vocals. i also loved the intro with the piano. it introduced the song very well. at about 2:40 there is a short guitar (i think) part that sounds pretty cool. wish it was longer. as something that could have done better for constructive critisism, i would say that at times it sounds chaotic and at other times certain instruments drown out the others (might just be my computer speakers). also i thought that the guitar solo could have been trippier instead of shredding-ish music.

thx for the crit

it's very alternative, you've definately got you own style, the piano starts off well even if it's midi and some of the notes don't last long enough. when the second piano comes in it uses a very weird scale thet doesn't really fit in, i like the drum line at 2:00, overall well recorded and well mixed.

to be honest it's not really something that i would listen to but thats just me, no harm meant, this is just my taste in music

the harmonic minor piano melody didn't work to well. It sounded forced and at some points just not the scale to be using. When the music kicked in, it worked a lot better. Cool vocal melodies. I like the sudden stop with the piano run before the second verse. at 2:56 is where I think the best part of the song kicks in. The vocal melody and the rest of the music fits beautifully and I found that to be most enjoyable. Other than that, it's not really my think. It's well constructed, just not my genre. Reminds me of the Queens of The Stone Age, and I was never really a fan of them. Keep on keeping on.

The piano intro was amazingly good, contrary to what other people said, I loved the oddness that was going on.

The vocals remind me a lot of Queens of the Stone Age, that's a good thing. In fact, this all reminds me a lot of QOTSA.

3:00 is probably one of the coolest things I've ever heard, I mean the transition. Except I don't really like whatever effect is on the vocals. The part after that was alright.

All in all, I loved this. So great.

Just checking out the quality of recordings. I like it! Reminds me of a Songs For The Deaf B-side or something (in a good way).
Mind divulging the details or your recording process/equipment?
