Thank you all for your comments on this version. We’ve had a lot of great contributions to this song and I’ve been working all week to include them into the mix to see if they fit well together or not. With each version that I’ve uploaded there has been small & large changes in order to get to the direction and quality that we are looking for. I agree with everyone that the more vocals we add to the chorus the more cluttered they sound, and now that there are male vocals on the verses I think there is a bigger contrast between the parts. The purpose of uploading each version was to get feedback from the community (which we did, thank you) and to show how the song is progressing for future contributions. That being said this song still needs work and this one won’t be the final version. Thanks again!

Hi! First of all I want to say a huge thank you to Malicore and the rest of the people on this track for making it what it is becoming. Such an amazing opportunity and experience to be part of!
Secondly I'm with the other commenters on the chorus; i think if the voices are a little tighter then the impact and message of the song will definitely be stronger. I like musicinmyhead idea about the accapella chorus [even if it was just accompanied by the guitar and clapping?] and definitely think it's worth experimenting with!
So so so excited about all this :D

THis is sounding great and I love I Am 1954's vocals. I would have to agree with the other comments however that the choruses seem to be a little too loose. I think that tightening them up would sound a lot better for the flow of the song. It sounds more like a singalong instead of a chorus when all of the vocals are not in sync with each other. Other than that, you have really nailed this song. It's been a pleasure working with you on this track.

Hey Malicore, bass and drums are sounding great : )
I agree with Claudia's suggestions.
I will risk sticking my head out because I mean this from the heart.
The second time the chorus appears at 2.16 I felt the multiple phrasing styles steal something from the impact that pamagotchi created previously. Especially 2:24 through 2:31 , IMO there is a tension that detracts rather than adds energy. It's like individual flavours that are lovely in their own right but not quite locking yet.My ear is craving that pocket even in a track that has an organic feel. Totally just my personal opinion but it creates just a small speed bump that is holding me back from getting lost in the track. I'd be happy to take direction on this as I'm sure we all would, if you wanted to make a suggestion on re-dos/tweaks etc
Just my pinch of salt ! b ; )

I think it sounds great! You've done an amazing job on this Malicore :D
I have one suggestion: perhaps the last few repetitions of the chorus could build a little more? Maybe have three repetitions of the chorus rather than two? Keep the first as it is, add more voices to the second and then have an acapella third, which leads into the breakdown?
I made an example which you can find here:
It uses v.3, but you get the gist. If it interests you, you can find a link to stems in the results.
Like I said, just a suggestion. What you've got is great already!
