A small piece of nitpicking if I may, the "volume pumping" caused by the (too) heavily compressed recording (or overuse of a limiter possibly), removes any kind of subtleties and blends everything into a pulp. You should let the music "breathe" a little more. But then again, the way it is now, maybe that's what you were looking for ? If so, simply disregard this post scriptum.
Hey, Alien, thanks for the critique! I agree with you completely, I think a lot of the intricacies of the song are cloaked by overcompression. I still have a lot to learn about music production and mastering, and this is certainly a portrayal of that. Hopefully I'll be able to figure it out after a little more tinkering.
