I'm listening to it now as I type...and it's brilliant. I can't think of anything else to say other than that.

erm, best song you've ever written eh? i'm sorry to say i didn't think it was all that great, the rhythem just wasn't interesting, the lead guitar didn't really provide anything that made me say 'wow, this is great', maybe its just be but that wasn't a great song

Try to spice up the rhythym a bit.
Most of the leads were in straight quarter notes.
It has some wonderful ideas and some nice harmony lines, althogh some leads are very cheesy indeed.
You're writing skill is indeed good, but you need to work on your rhythym.
Maybe you're much better at it in real life but have trouble transcribing it, the same thing happens to me.
Or maybe you really need to stop playing those boring quarter note runs.

Well, they're eighth notes, but still I hear what you're saying. And yea, it's definitely not the most complicated piece ever, I just really liked the way it sounded. But you think the leads need some spicing eh? ok, I'll look at it. Thanks for your comments everyone.

I really liked it. Especially the leads and the solo. But the rhythm kinda bored me. You should spice it up like what other people have already stated. But honestly i really really liked it.

Crit mine ?

Alright, its up. On second thought... The bend kinda grew on me, but its still the weakness i saw in the song...

Hey, man, sorry it took me so long to get back to you on that crit. I've been busy the past couple of days. It does sound a bit bland at the beginning. I did like the solo, and I think that at the last four bars of the phrases in the solo, I think you should keep strumming it instead of holding the chord out, because holding the chord out breaks the solo up, and strumming the chord some more would help link the phrases together. I did like sixteenth notes scattered throughout the riffs. Overall, not too bad. 6/10.

Thanks for the crit.

hey man no worries about the time taken to crit it... only 6/10 though eh? haha jk that's cool though thanks for the input. I actually probably will do that suggestion with the chords cuz it'd probably flow better... I need to put in a bassline too soon, so I'mma prolly do that in the next few days since I'm home on break anyway. Thanks for listening.

The intro is alright, it's not bad as such

It would be good backing to some good vocals

Don't like the distortion bit at all...it killed the mood of the song for me

Nice intro, pretty solid. The transition from clean to distortion needs to be worked on. I dont really like all the rests and stuff. The solos pretty cool, though like i said i dont realy like all the rests and stops.

Altogether, pretty solid song, just needs some tweaking up.
