General Comments

I think there is a ton of potential for this song. I'm sure it could be a hit with the right people behind it. for me personally, y opinion, I think the chorus could be stronger melodically. it needs to move more. The verses have a really laid back feel to me, this I like and I think it gets the story across without seeming pushy. This leads me to want the chorus to take me up a notch and open up my eyes a bit more. it's almost there. First line is great and then I start wanting something more, something bigger. Again, this is just my opinion. I am a fan of big open hooky choruses. Slap you in the face type hits. this is a great song, it could be an incredible song. Make any sense? I think you can reach a little deeper and stronger, make it rock a little harder and really feel the hurt, the ache, the suffering. Especially when there is alcohol involved. its never a pretty sight and I think thats what I'm missing. there needs to be a certain angst with just the right amount of "I can't deal with this pain anymore". On another note i think the vocal sound over all could be tweaked a bit to sound a little leaner, slightly thinner, giving it a more intimate sound. Well, that's my two cents anyway. i do appreciate the opportunity to listen to your music. keep doing what you are doing, it is really good.
