Description
Ok, sorry to repost the song so soon but I am about to move onto my new song which I am very excited about and this one is much better mixwise than the last. The drums are better mixed now that we had the multitracks and the vocals are more balanced. Maybe not quite perfect mix wise but pretty close I think.

Another Day Wasted
scott's drums sound great .... i'd have to listen to this and the last side by side to really hear differences, i thought it was terrific before. but i'm glad you're happy with it, and this is one fine band playing terrific music - congrats!

ooooooh!
much better! Great job by all involved, this is dialed in now, jeff and scott did awesome, and my backing vocals are amazing! You did okay, good thing you had all of us to make you look good and carry this song for ya! :-) Kidding! Kidding! I think this is one of the best songs I've heard in a long time, and you did great as a singer/songwriter, it's not a song w/o a great hook, and you have one here and I think your voice sounds perfect! Really I am very happy for you Charles, this is top notch grade A songwriting and production! I'd say radio ready but it's way better than the crap on the radio!

Another Day Wasted (final)
Hey Charles. It's been a few days and after some time listening repeatedly on my iPod I wanted to come back and leave a more detailed comment. I know in the production and arranging phases you had some real talented guys to lend a hand. And what a result. This piece has some real power. And the arrangement reflects the passion in the lyric perfectly.

But I really wanted to focus on the song itself. The fact is this is the kind of song that is so well written you could have recorded an acoustic guitar or two, a few vocal tracks, and then sent it off to an A&R guy to pitch to all kinds of recording pros. I can hear a rock band like Nickelback or any of several contemporary country artists turning this into a mega hit.

It's the hook. The chorus just rolls right out. And the flow of that chorus grabs the listener and doesn't let go. The verses each build wonderfully toward the chorus. The line "You want to change your life, I'll tell you how!" Is like a jet taking off toward the chorus.

This is one to be very proud of!

The original
I like this track and your emotional levels. I had heard Symphony101's version and had to check this out. Tons of good stuff in this version, I see why he wanted to cover it. Good work by all the players.

thanks for the dl :)

Powerful Musical Presence
Excellent mix and production. This is the kind of music, I'd like to hear on the radio. Powerful message in that refrain. My sincere compliments to all those involved.
