    Generally speaking, I like it.

    The good:
    It's pretty well produced.
    It's well played, in terms of phrasing being good, and timing is tight, etc.
    I'm 99.9% certain the drums are programmed, but well programmed.

    The not as good:
    I don't know if this is a criticism of your song in particular, but I find a lot of the solo-produced proggy guitar stuff is all starting to sound the same to me. It's a good sound, don't get me wrong, but there's little here to distinguish this from others in a similar genre. Without being told who it was, I can think of two or three albums this could have snuck into without anyone knowing. It could be a matter of the tones/mixing techniques being used- programmed drums, dirty bass, that same almost-scratchy low/mid-gain lead tone... IMO you're 90% of the way there, but need something to stand out.

    Good work though.:yesway:

    I, too, love that lead tone. This whole thing is good. I think it does indeed sound like prog but I think you've got a pretty clear style that is still present here.
