I like the creativity, instrumentation, song writing, seem fine to me. The mix is...inadequate, though. There really isn't a single center that weaves through the mix.

At one point, over one section, for instance, it's mostly guitar in the foreground, dominating, even though other instrumentation should be popping out at times. And at other times it's 'everything' occupying center stage. The instruments that are featured in terms of song writing, at one time or another, don't get highlighted in terms of mix, at least not enough... It makes for a pretty dull, flat composition, like elevator music or movie music, where the music itself isn't interesting enough to listen to alone... I mean, it is interesting enough, just that the mix doesn't grab the listener and hold on, dragging (carrying) them through from start to end...
