I don't know what happened but somehow when I submitted a review of another song, it ended up on this one. Because of that I can't post my review, so you'll have to make do with a comment.
I wasn't sure what to say about the lyrics. I like the rhyme scheme and flow in relation to the melody a lot, as it really lifts the song up a notch. On the other hand, the generic words to the melody ruin the magic for me. Typical lines like "loneliness is my only friend" should be avoided in my opinion. Not all of it is bad, but it could be better :)
Pretty good all the way through, but dear god that solo at 3:02 is gold. The part at 3:47 towards the end, where the lead guitar and rhythm section alternate is fantastic. 7/7
Admittedly I know little about production, but I would have preferred the lead guitar a little more in front of the mix.
Overall a pretty solid tune, but not something I would return to for a second listen.
It sounds like a lot of tunes in this genre, be more original than this, I bet you can! Its not a bad song by any means but I think you have a lot of untapped talent in you, trust that and get creative! I must say that I have come across a few of your tunes and you are quiet good. Do not let any critiques discourage you, that is not the intent.. I would appreciate some of your thoughts on my songs if you ever get a chance....
Comment: "This did not strike me well the first time I heard it. But now that I am hearing it again it is starting to grow on me. Nice job. If you put some nice low thick bass to this it would really strike emotion.Nice job"
