Okay, I'll jump.

The mix throughout is good, nicely balanced, but I agree that at times 
your drum groove is just a little bit too relaxed. To my ears there is 
often an audible flamming between the snare and the downbeat, personally 
I'd tighten it up a bit.

On another personal note: I know you call it a song, but to me it's more 
of a groove loop (though the progression at ~4' is noticeable). More 
formal variety would be welcome, and vocals usually create what I call a 
song. Of course you can always claim inspiration from Mendelssohn. :)

The recorded sound is very good, as is the playing. The guitars are 
especially sweet. I agree with the respondent who advised letting it sit 
for a week. Return to it with a fresh outlook, see what happens, post it 

Gee, that's such good advice I think I should start following it myself. :)

Thanks for sharing !
