Very enjoyable. Lots of work in there both in the arrangement and video production.

I can hear so many influences including ELO and the Beatles.



NIce.

I haven't had the time to listen and study ELO, but Jeff Lynne and ELO keeps showing on my recommendation. I probably should start listening to their stuff.

This is like one man Phil Spector prod. I mean, one man, a string section and a personal army of clones. Looks like incredible amount of work and attention to detail to merge everything so well, mad respect.

Very good production. Sounds great!

From a composition point of view it is very limited; melodically speaking.

It is like this: up - down ; up down ... down down. And the vocal melody is exactly the same as the music tempo. Very robotic and predictable. Lacking in "soul"...

The sonic production is great, but the melodic interplay between the music and the vocal is lacking.

The un-coupling of the music and the lyrics is one of the most difficult things to do... Great songs achieve this, most songs do not = bla bla bla more of the same modern commercial product.

Not that anyone cares, but a way out of this predicament is to either: 1) record the music, mix, and then listen while creating a vocal melody, or 2) create a vocal melody first without music. The worst situation is to create a vocal melody while playing an instrument at the same time (e.g an amateur guitarist scratching while creating lyrics). The latter can work, but only for a very few talented people.

Note: a simple vocal tip is to sttttrreeeeeeeetch the words. Instead of singing each syllable on each beat (= boring), you need to find a way to sttttrreeeeeeeetch the words. Sing them off beat and so on..

The song lacks separation between the music and vocal melody.

Great production and ear candy

It's purposely written exactly that way as an artistic choice.

Not everyone listen to the lyrics nor vocal. Lots of people whom listen to my music are not even speaking English. Some just pickup the melody while others will pickup rhythm, lyric or harmony.

The vocal melody itself treat as a musical layer to blend cohesively. Thus its writing attempted to make the whole composition tell the story, by how it makes you feel.

Anyway, thank you for chiming in
