Sounds really good. Nice vibrato and tone all the way up to the high notes. And good control through the passagio into the higher range. A couple of pitch issues here and there which I'm sure will go away as you work on it. There are a few times where you end the phrase with a "ya" that goes way down in pitch. Example 1:02 "Endless Sea-ya". Not sure you intended that?

Wow, you're right, I did NOT intend on doing the ya at all! Nor did I realize it! thank you for pointing that out. Yeah I'm listening to it again and I hear the parts where it's pitchy. Thanks for commenting I appreciate your feedback :) It's good to be singing again. Anything you'd suggest I work on besides what you've already mentioned?

Ancilliary to what Geno was saying, I think that "ya" ending is coming from doing an almost glottal stop for the end of the note. Totally a stylistic comment, not a technical one, if you could end those notes like you did at the end of the song, with a cessation of breath, rather than a hard stop, I think it would fit the soft feeling of the song. But that is your choice. Otherwise, a truly strong voice and for the most part, you sang it as Steve Walsh sings it. Excellent effort.
