I agree, vocals are very well done. Very somber, made me teary eyed.
Don't mind people that can't appreciate real emotion.
You've got a lot of good stuff here, I'm rather speechless.
I normally I write reviews *as* I'm listening to the song. So:
Intro: Good start, feeling it.
As it moves on, I notice some cluttered bass frequencies; kinda throws off the whole feeling of the beat. Like mixing a bass synth with a bass kick. Afterwards (around 2:30 or so) comes back feeling good.
I like the use of skip timed arpeggios, there's a lot to take in, but just enough to give some good imagery. There are points (like 3:50) where I'm noticing some weird frequency clipping as well (not just mixed instruments, actual clipping, although intended distortion will do the same thing, I play my music loud loud).
Apart from a few tiny things (mixing related, and again it's only my own observations, different hardware etc.) I really enjoyed this one.
Not trying to pick it apart. xD
I never had a review like that, thank you.
