Ah, smooooth fretwork! And a really tasty production at that, you had me even before the vocals came in.
Think you could get away with a little less reverb on the vox in the chorus and/or a bit more in-your-face (matter of taste of course)
My only suggestion would be the chorus before the solo. It's a bit different (at least drum wise) but I think you could make it even more 'different' to transit into the solo.
Anyway, a really solid piece of work, well done!

Nice track with quite a hooky chorus...kind of a mix of classicr rock and Brit pop to me.

Excellent clarity in the mix with a nice throbbing bass line. It felt slightly too compressed on the whole for me, I'd have preferred a little more dynamic contrast but I know compression is a subjective thing and probably just my personal taste.

Little else I can pick at though so I've got to find something.

Great job guys.

The sound and the mix are really very professional. The song is very good. I also hear Mark Knopfler, especially in the intro, which is very good sign.

Congratulations!

Hi,
I like the guitar intro and verse with 2nd vocals.
And the chorus is strong. All instrument present and correct.
Thoughts: at the beginning it had a pop feel then went straight into the Oasisy chorus, which took me a bit by surprise, the second time, you went into a prechorus which worked for me prior to the second chorus..

Yo dudes.

A fine intro with those Rockabilly Knopfler licks.  :)

The song drives just great,dig those drums. Vocals work well with the song.

I'm in the same club of 'less is more' with the guitar licks,but a minor detail in a good song.

Impressive blend of country choogling and britpop guitar chops! Nice big chorus that carries the song. I like the suspended ending too... interesting place to leave it hanging.  Be proud of this one guys... it's a winner.
It's all too beautiful.

Whato @Cawproductions - Nice idea for a song, I agree with some of the others I think the song would really benefit from losing the lead gtr fills completely, as Skub says < = > . Keep it for Solo section.

Nice middle 8, so difficult to write a good one.

After the Solo section the LVox does tend to sound like one of the BVox...clever singing.

Yeah love the interrupted finish.

Very nice indeed. Hope this helps.

 Another great song guys. ;D .   Just love that rhythm and 'especially' nice drums.
 Huge chorus with some great lyrics.  The only thing I would've looked at, if it were
 mine, would be the guitar sound.....a little more 'dirt' in it for me ;D ;D.  A taste thing....

 Love the energy...a real 'mover' of a song. 

Nowt as queer as folk...........my gran
