    Im impressed for only being together for 5 months. Out of the two posted, I like Come On a lot better than the demo song you have up there. The reason being you guys sound OOK (Out of Key) in a few parts at the 37s mark background vocals are OOK (non harmonized), at he 1m21s mark you can hear the lead vocals taking a breath before continuing while the background vocals do not, and at the 2m1s mark the background vocals are not in key with the main vocals. Sorry for being critical, ive been DJing for 14yrs and producing for 9yrs so i try to listen thoroughly. But like i said you guys sound great, bst of luck

    NOT trying to be mean or start a fight but... Im sorry Mirrormind, if breathing in a song ruins it for you than maybe music isnt your thing? Its about the lyrics buddy and the effort to spill your heart to make a song

    But to middi. Deff. impressed and I love the sound. I got you guys bookmarked now, Cant wait to purchase your EP!

    Maybe I was a bit critiquel of mirrormind but not all of us have a Sony BMG recording studio on our block. lol

    All in good love Mirrormind nothing personal I hope (not trying for enemys here)

    No worries, but i would re-read the OP. He asked for criticism, and that is what i gave, constructive criticism. Also if you think a song is about lyrics or the effort to pure your heart into a song thats only about 10% of a composition of a song. It doesnt take a Sony BMG recording studio to know that. Most songs arent even written by bands anymore, and you can have the best lyrics in the world, but if the music is horrible or if you cant sing those lyrics than your bands in a lot of trouble right?

    correct didnt mean to jump about the criticism peace. But again most main stream bands purchase there lyrics. Im sure he isnt main stream. lol also if you truly believe that 90% of the song isnt lyrics than what is it? because the instruments and beat are centered around the feelings the lyrics are ment to put out. Again I dont believe in any main stream artists as I feel most are "barbied up". I believe in every small time artist with true inspirations beyond money and glory.
    The actual work to set up the correct rythem and tempo maybe what your refurring to as the other 90%? But again the lyrics are the center and the message. The instruments add and put in feelings and emotions.

    I love it. Its really retro-alternative and its the sound is very "happy mondays" style very good. I'm on your list for the release.
