Default New song - Moderately Modulating

There is a subreddit called asongaweek, so I thought I would give it a go. The theme was modulation. I failed, because this took me a week and a half, but I'm still I glad I did it.

Currently the mix is too quiet, so I suppose I'll have to go through and see if I can make it louder!

Any feedback is appreciated.

edit: changed the url.
edit 2: change the url again. I'm getting mixed up by my own song title!

Great song, vocals and mix, everything. Sounded very commercial (in a good way).
Well done!

I like the eerie feeling of the song. Clever play on the theme.

This is rather fantastic, I love such melancholy-delic sound. Classical guitar riff is delightful as well.

Thanks. It's funny because when I wrote the guitar riff I just thought it was a throw away non-riff and I would have forgotten it's very existence 10 minutes after playing it if it weren't for the fact I saw The Song A Week challenge on reddit that day and decided to use it. And I've had several people comment on how catchy the riff is. It's scary to think what ideas we all must throw away that someone else would really like!

Yes, went some tracks down in your soundcloud and it really sounds a bit out of character compared. Happy unhappy-sounding accident

If you're looking for some instruction on mastering and raising the levels in your final mix, here's a great YouTube video with some mastering VSTs (that are FREE downloads), that really work great.
