sad, indeed
Nice combination of percussion with your acoustic guitar.

The way this piece begins is interesting, with a loose, free-form rhythm. It sort of meanders along without a definite beat, which creates a mood of sadness. A little drunken haze, perhaps?

Then the guitar and drums kick in with a steadier beat, although that free-form feeling remains throughout the song. Some things are a bit of of synch, a little unsettling, but effective in its way of conveying sadness.

Your artwork perfectly fits the mood you have created on this song.

It was a difficult song to develop simply keeping it slightly twisted.

The darkness of youth.

Thanks for tuning in!

music is good
I like the sound of it and the general feeling of it. Especially nice at the 2/3 changeover. I think that section should be a lot longer I was definetly feeling that and wanting more. I would recommend shortening the first 2/3 and lengthening the the more intense part. Also the ending just cuts off.
Vocals aren't bad but they don't have anything to work with. I like intense lyrics with a lot of meaning so simply saying a handful of words doesnt work at all for me. No offense but I can't even consider them lyrics. I'd rather it was without vocals than that.
I'd recomend either losing the entire vocal track or writing expansive lyrics to convey the theme. I think its got a lot of potential but its not being realized. I banged out some lyrics below off your keywords keeping them vague enough since I have no real details beyond the keywords as to your theme. Use 'em hate 'em. Just trying to help.

sad are my days
sorry for the ways
we said goodbye

everything went wrong
I didnt want to worry
until I heard goodbye

on with our lives
I walk in empty steps
without you I am blind

Thanks for the comments virtualruffy!

I get your comments on the lyrics. I was trying to see if I could express an
effective message with single word lines. I could have worked harder on the
phrasing. But it is an experiment.

I may re-address it in the future.

Abstract
The accoustic sounds good. I like the clarity and closeness of it, which
has a very intimate vibe. I'd suggest adding just a little width to bring
thhe listener closer, maybe panning just 10% R/L using a doubled
track.

The tone of the rythm electric guitar seems a little too dirty and over-
effected to me for some reason. I think I was drawn in by the natural
character of the accoustic and want to hear a bit more of the pick
against the strings. The electric sort of pushes me away.

I think you might consider some alternate effects on the vocals rather
than the delay. A phasing chorus might contrast the vocals more
strongly with the center panned accoustic and help to accentuate the
dream-like atmosphere, especially given the sparseness of the lyrics.
In a sense, because the song is brief I think the vocals need to be really
impactful.

I dig the emotion of the song and the abstract lyrical content.
Cameron's description of a "drunken haze" is very apt. Lots of mood in
a tight little package!

chikoppi! Thanks for the comments!

I noticed some production issues, too.

I think I was lazy. But I forget that I can dupe the file, archive it and try it
again without losing the original.

SLOBBLES!
Noodles the clown I can see you in the mirror and your going to fall out of that chair! Wow this is a bit trippy! I was having flashbacks when I noticed this was a bit avant garde and the plant was winking at me and saying! Come eat me! The plant says I suppose you could work on your timing! Not a bad sound but does need bass says the carpet and the lamp said it was cut short at the end! Abrupty? Stopping talking Lamp!

Thanks!

Once I looked into the wind. I nodded. The wind was making me nod! I've
always loved that plant. I smiled until I found my watch not working, maybe
it was working strangely.

When I see the light, I will extend it. Perhaps it will go smoothly!
