This sounds great.
I am immediately taken by the fabulous singing.
Very large range of vocal expressions
The arrangement got some beatles rock it.
The details of the drums I like a lot, it fits very well and is sophisticated .

Always extremely well thought out and performed singing with the accompanying lyrics being just as imaginative. The music here is highly creative and arranged and it does bridge multiple styles and influences. Outstanding, diverse effort here, SamD. Quit being so lazy and post more often! smiley

Thanks for listening guys. I tried a few "production" experiments on this to try to keep things interesting. And Yeah @BigJimSlade , I do need to write and record more. Getting rusty. The only music I've been doing is just mixing.

This is what I hear!
Wow...

A much more dynamic mix, and it come across as a studio recording.
Ever instrument is clear and well defined. The crisp highs are a good accent and are not ever done...

drodbar Artist That bit after the guitar breaks sounds unfamiliar. Still a great tune and production, Sam.

Now how'd I guess you would notice the difference? I experimented with a different compressor for one, and kept it around a 2:1 ratio (it was higher on the prev version), thus more dynamics. Thanks for noticing.

It's the same synth part, @Drodbar , just turned up some (I think too much now that I listen back). Ah, me. Never satisfied...

"The 6th Beatle" … yeah, George Martin was the 5th Beatle and you channel Mr. Martin's arrangement and production sensibilities, for sure. You are uniquely you though. So many other influences blend into your style, which is wonderful.

I know what you mean, Sam. It's good to hand over to someone (usually Tom) and say, "That's that." Then move on.

With comic strips it's done when the speech balloons are up!

I like that really greasy part (try to be so democratic...) with the hammerin' piano. Good songs always have a part that makes me make a strained face with duck lips and start bobbin my head. smiley

You said you've been spendin a lot of time mixin...it shows, man. This sounds great! (i too thought of the beatles...especially the dreamy flutey synth part).

Well done, Sam.

@becwil
So far I've heard Beatles, Badfinger, and ELO! (Not particularly in this post.) I own SampleTron--a Mellotron from SampleTank--and had to put it to use. Thanks Bec!

Pass to someone else? No, no no! Mixing's too personal for me. Well, maybe to a mastering engineer if s/he doesn't turn it into a lifeless block of a wav form.

Thanks guys. I let the music part of this sit around for weeks until I got off my butt and added some lyrics and vocals just to have the thing done. Glad you listened.

@KCsGROOVE special thanks for one for the road!

Just a couple days ago, I was thinking.... Hmmm, I haven't seen Sam around here for a few. And then there you are. smiley As others have said, I am feeling a strong ELO and Beatles vibe going on here. Only just reminders. Mostly I am feeling and hearing your own style coming through. Fantastic work, thanks for sharing with us.

Sounds really good on my end Sammy. Always liked your pass work-very creative with loads of performing talent. Though music follows a clock, inspiration is another matter. Would like to here more from you, but I'll settle for really good. Yeah, I have to start spending more time improving my mixes and sound quality. I think you did a fine job with this one.
