Hello Tom.

It sounds really nice, did you record it entirely on your rehearsal
room or in a studio? What mics?

I would say, just to add some constructive critics, that maybe would
be nice to add some more depth and EQ to voices and some solos, just
not to be in-your-face. But maybe it was your intention.
