This is good!
I love a piano up in the mix like this, if you are going to play the thing..it should be heard, both hands. Good doing.
The strings need some wierd eq settings for them sit "more real". Adding upper frequencies to them (12K) so they do not appear too thick interfering with the vocal.
The piano is well captured, was it an electric or acoustic, these days it can be hard to tell, My bet is on an electric.
Good stuff. I would like a shade more air on the strings and a shade more air on the entire mix..but really, this is nice work.
I really dig the end of the year.
On both, I hear some issues in vibe with dynamics that could be dealt with in production to make monsters out of both tunes. More involved ending chourus with "end of the year" some cellos etc.
You are darn close to haveing something large!
Some hand holding in production (minor) would really polish these to monsters..and they are high 8's now.
I would love to remix this one, some track eq on certain tracks but I love it.
Nice lyrics. I have thought about writing something along those themes.
Great work..it gets a shade noisy toward the end, mastering can solve that for sure!
