Hey, sounding good man. I like your calm low end; you got a cool confident/nonchalant vibe to it, I like :3 Your mid/high, while you have improves TONS, doesn't really have body/attitude. Maybe it's a stylistic choice?

That's a really good song, content-wise. And a sing-along, with a memorable melody that others can follow. It's got instant hit all over it.

It sounds like you had constant singing volume throughout the song. When maybe, the higher parts should sound "louder," whether they are technically louder or not. Which would probably be mostly accomplished with some "edge" in the voice. The low and mid-parts are like a lullaby and they work well, that way. The high parts should have a little more "panic" in them. Let the audience think you are "fighting for air," even if you are not. I can tell this song comes easily to you.

And, of course, this is all stylistic. Nothing technical needs fixing, as far as I can tell. So, it's a matter of your interpretation. Aside from the physical standpoint of volume coming from resonance, volume in this recording is an auditory illusion.

Technically speaking, I would say the vibrato needs some work so that you can control it better and make it sound connected to your voice because it sounds like you put ALOT of effort into every vibrato part, pronouncing oscillation discrepancies.

Why do I always feel bad when giving critique? T_T It's all in the good will!

Nice mix. I think the vocals came out good - nice performances. On the loudness of the vocals - yeah I think the vocals need a bit more processing. I think more compression, and definitely needs some high frequency boosting. And maybe a better short reverb that is properly EQ'd. At this point the vocal lacks sparkle that can lead you to think the vocals aren't loud enough. I think they are loud enough, except in the high frequencies.
