Nice folky song from yesteryear

A Talk With God (Who Loves You?) The Addiction Club

Cool harmonies and strong vocal are fully featured here.
I quite like the simple but effective arpeggios and the melody overall.
A couple of timing issues but nothing too distractive.

The double guitar could have been panned more widely, or have better separation, they kind of mask one another which causes some phase cancellation. There's a bit too much reverb as well which doesn't help.

The vocals have some sibillance, mostly coming from the reverb.
You should try to EQ the reverb return and cut some highs on your reverb, it will sound more natural and will probably help with the sibilance.

The violin part works for me when it sounds like a mellotron, but less when it tries to pass for a real violin, it's a good effort but quite difficult to succeed. I would have gone with a simple acoustic guitar solo for that or forget it entirely.

In short, a nice little intimate song that's rather easy on the ears.
