Ticking Away

One of the tracks for the forthcoming EP my friend Matt and I are coming out with. We've been sitting on this song playing it live over 3 years, going through many different arrangements but landing on this one recently. It will be the last track, a nice slow outro song that departs from the harder rock style the rest of the EP will be. Looking forward to uploading them all soon.

Ticking Away
I like the laid-back arrangement. The melody sounds spot on for the genre, and the vocal/harmonies are strong. Some really nice guitar parts especially in the chorus. My only nit is that the bass and drums aren't up to the other tracks, they both sound overly repetitive.

I believe you have given some good feedback here. I have to listen again, to be sure, but I missed any crashes or rolls. A little bit of thius could help the dynamics. The rest of the arrangement is very dynamic. It's really too bad the way it is. When something is this good, all you can do is polish it. Polish/nit picking probably the same thing. Good constructive feedback IMHO.

Damn this wifi... messes with my typing. I meant to say "not too bad the way it is".

Really good
Very tight production, great radio friendly song structure. My only criticism mirrors dave_b's. I think a different boost in frequency for the main drums could do wonders without having to boost gain. the verse drums can be more forgiving as that I'm sure your intentions were to give it a subtle beat but would work more dynamically if the main drums during the louder parts were more prominent.

Unlike Dave_b though I think the bass variation is fine for this type of genre it could be louder but at this point it's just nitpicking.

Overall this is an amazing song, awesome job.
