This is excellent.
My personal taste makes me cringe at the "Kenny G" sound 'sax' - but that's all me (a guitar line in the same place would have been quite fabulous!). Don't feel slighted, it's not meant in any way but a personal opinion.

That said, the recording is quite wonderful. Good levels, nice tones (ahem....the...er...sax thing...you know....), clean recording. I'm listening on work PC speakers, so I haven't got the ol' audio scalpel out.
I Love the girl's voice, and the song is very strong. Welcome to HRC. Good start!

Post more. I'll be stealing some of your ideas! Hehe...

I'll be giving it a listen by Thursday when I get caught up on all the other listens I have in line.

Welcome to HRC by the way.

Listening on PC speakers...

All in all it's pretty good. But I prefer to do evil critiques :)

Vocals: There was some enunciation problems and I think when she sang low she was out of her range.

Bass: Drives me nuts... It just sounds like the general midi bass guitar to me... no meat...

Sax: Sax was fine with me

Drums: ballad drumming rule #1... during choruses use the ride cymbol instead of the highhat.

Song in total: pretty standard P&W but it literally turned into a trance intro at the end. The electronica 'stuff' earlier in the song didn't fit IMO.

Feedback appreciated and noted. This recording was done about 2 years ago but I mixed it again last week, just to see what I've learned. As I have done it for free that time (why..) I was lazy and had the keys, drums and bass (all from a sound module) recorded as one stereo track - mistake as I could'nt adjust the individual volumes for those afterwards. I should still have the midi somewhere and try again, using some of your suggetions.
