Change Your Ways

So, I'm a recurring member here. I keep coming back for more bashing. Here is a song near and dear to my heart.

If you change your walk
And change your walk for God
He will change your heart within
Your walk
So change your walk
for God

One step in front of the other
We will make it with each other
After we have passed this era
We will dine
With Christ forever
just pass this era

Once this house has met it’s builder
Praise God He will build another
So hold on brother
It will get better
It will get better

If we change our ways
Change them for God
He will change our ways
And change them oh oh

Once your ship has sailed the weather
The storms seem smaller after time
And though you’ve sailed a different Ocean
My sail is yours
And yours is mine

If we change our ways
Change them for God
He will change our ways
And change them oh oh

Once your ship has sailed the weather
The storms seem smaller after time
And though you’ve sailed a different Ocean
My sail is yours
And yours is mine

If we change our ways
Change them for God
Change them for God

Once this house has met it’s builder
Praise God He will build another
So hold on brother
It will get better
It will get better

Once your ship has sailed the weather
The storms seem smaller after time
And though you’ve sailed a different Ocean
My sail is yours
And yours is mine

When we change our ways
We change them for God
We change them for God

Interesting song Colin
I'm not a fan of panned lead vocals, but they sound clean and well recorded. maybe a bit too loud for the rest of the instruments.
I'd like a bit more low end on the bass but I might be wrong since I'm on ear-buds for now..
Good job !!

pretty cool. The laid back organic approach works for me. I would however replace the snare with something less synthetic sounding, then I would add an effect on it to push it back in the mix. As of now I find the snare very distracting and monotonous. If you are going to make double tracked vocals this up front, don't clutter them with a clear monotonous snare that cuts through better than the vocals.

Another example. Your vocals are not dynamic, nor is your snare so everything is the same. What am I supposed to focus on most? The less or more of two evils.
