Review for What Used To Be

The track is very professionally mixed and mastered. The vocals are just loud enough to become the focus of attention, while still allowing for the beautiful tone of the strings to shine through. All the pieces harmonize flawlessly to create a really slow, sad song. The singer provides a very fitting and polished performance on the track, carrying a sorrowful melody with just enough strength to convey the lyrics' hopefulness. While the melody belies a country/folk influence, the choice in instrumentation and their sparing use naturally and distinctly modifies this beautifully put-together track into something really memorable.
