Nice, dark vibe!
Some stuff there to sit back and think about.

Very good, very though provoking music, kinda reminded me of acoustic serious moments of maybe even green day and HIM, dark and melachonic. Touch too much much reverb production wise, and maybe could do with some other sounds in the background, but beautiful music, thank you.

Hey, I just listened to your stuff there. I must say, I really like your vocal style. On the rock songs there like Temple and Soon, I though you sounded like a cross between Billy Idol and Tiamat's Johan Edlund, which is pretty cool. The instruments in those songs didn't really do much for me though...
I actually did like the accoustic stuff too. Well, Beer Song reminded me of Something To Believe In by Poison for some reason, but other than that...

This is a hard beaten anvil shapped composition that really has great lyrics. The guitar could stand to come up, and the bass down a bit. Drums are fine where there at. The vocal needs something though. It sounds like you're singing as not to be heard in the next room. I think that more projection in the vocal would really make this one shine with the passion that it was written with.
The overall production is a hair muddy, but no big problem. I just bumped a view dials on the EQ and it was fine to my taste.
I loved the lyrics as I stated before, but there were some awkward phrases that didn't quite fit the way you might've originally intended. The song has an overall darker approach than pop or rock, which isn't a bad thing these days. I just feel that it would benefit from another mixdown if that's feasable. Structure-wise its fine, but a little lead work would be welcomed in my opinion, and a bridge to sort of transition back to the main melody would give this a much more professional flavor.
That's just my take on it though.

There is soul here. A lot of dark feeling, a lot of depression, and a lot of agony. I feel this guy and his groove. "Temple" is an impressive lament and questioning as to why things are the way they are. I kind of like this muddy production, but you would do well to make it a bit less flat landscape. I think that the guitar sound should have a bit more life. Soon is a cool song, but the music is too soft spoken. I think you feel a lot and have some potential.
