Works or Not?

Hey all,
Here's a bit more traditional instrumental (more traditional compared to the 50s-60s Z-grade soundtrack inspired stuff that I've posted a bit of in the past), but I guess the question is does it work for you? Feel free to constructively criticize the playing, arrangement, recording technique, etc, it's all me except the drum machine and my daughter's voice variously sampled.
Thanks
Brandon

Ok, I understand what you're trying to do with the samples, but they way they're recorded and cut makes them sound really jarring and strange. They sound overprocessed, and they're cut too sharply, and they're seriously disconnected from the rest of the piece.

The guitar work, though, sounds great.

Thanks man, that's exactly what I was hoping to get an opinion on, I've been waffling back and forth since I added them and I think I've lost my objectivity. I'd love to hear anyone else's opinion of the samples, negative or positive, as well as how folks might integrate/record them differently.

Oh, for what it's worth, the same clean amp settings were used throughout and the overdrive tones are from a Clay Jones Overdrive.
