Lot's of cool sounding guitars in this one. Catchy melody in the chorus and plenty of other hooks too. Since constructive criticism is welcome here goes - when you sing the line "use of what god gave you fell on harder time before" sounds a little strange to me, like you weren't completely sure what the melody is. In a few other spots the vocal harmonies fell just shy of spot on. I think if you took another look at some of the vocals this tune could be HUGE! Thanks for sharing.

Variation
Too many songs in this genre are rather relentless in their use of droning guitars. I'm glad that you're bringing some variety in the sound level with some imaginative breaks.

The production sounds pretty good. Nice job.

Good Tune
Nice job. This competes with some crap I hear that is selling.

A tip on the drums whether they are loopes or programmed - doesn't matter:

Crash cymbals really like to have support underneath from a bass drum. Maybe those were live drums and you were new to mixing acoustic drums.

You will be surprised how this punctuates those notes that you are attempting to emphasize.

Crashes can be played without a kick of course, but that is typically just for effect.

vocals
A great recording seeing as it was done in a basement.
I gave this 2 listens because I thought it was a good song and has the possibility of being a 'great' song. Really catchy, good riff..I would just agree with eleveneyes and say the vocals wandered off the path a little bit.
It's not easy if you're recording in a basement with a whole band banging around you so maybe record the whole band playing and add vocals later or just keep running through the words on your own with a recording of this song and you will get to know where to take your voice when the time comes. Apart from that cool stuff.

Basement tapes
Really nice. I dig the whole thing, except some of the solo line singing is perhaps more out of tune than this genre allows, especially that first verse. (All the singing on the choruses works for me.) I like the homemade feel, the 80s guitar, the emo-punk feel. Authentic and fun.
