    Okay, the melody is horrible, could do with more synths backing it up, I don't believe it should be playing all the time, makes it too repetitive and it just annoys me, like it's mocking me. It doesn't help that the bassline is following the melody. The vocals could stand out more without the melodies in some parts, make transitions more obvious. Vocals are way too repetitive, the melody just eats everything in the mix. That's all I can say so far.

    Reckon the sub should be dropped an octave so it's real low and rumbling, melody is way too cheddar for my tastes!

    Push the subbass much lower for a more bassy feel. Define the drums, give them character because they are a bit lost in the mix. Add variety to the main melody, it's cool but a bit repetative. This is a personal note but I wouldn't do the bass the way you have produced it (imo I'm talking, didn't really like the change in the bass in the second part of the song)

    Still though, if you keep at it, this would be a gem. :)

    Sound for the feedback! Still havent been doing this for too long. But this is the first one we've done that we've actually had mastered.

    Yeh we wanted to make something different for the second bit.
