I don't think there's any harm in it. I used to think that every part of my tracks had to be somehow 'original', but I don't think that has to be true with chord progressions. In the end it's up to you though, you could make a good track with the same chords or different ones.

That's very true. I should focus on getting the production quality right, rather than figuring out how to sound different. I can worry about that later. Trusting my own ears though can be difficult so I appreciate your help!

Maybe it's just me but I think the drums are too verbed and really clutter the mix.

Other than that, you have a great melody and soundscape. I think getting the drums punchier in the mix and less verbed, will give this better depth.

Yeah I used a reverebed kick for it but I see what you mean! Do you think the crashes are also too loud? Something in that mix can be deleted but I'm not sure which one allows the right amount of clarity and fullness.

Reverb the kick in a space where you already have a lot of reverb can be tricky. Right now it feels like it clutters.
Question: what feeling were you trying to give with a reverbed kick?
Also, the crashes sounded fine. Maybe you can turn down a few db but nothing major needed. Typically long verbed crashes are fine.

well when I didn't have the reverb kick, it sounded too flat and abrupt when the kick hit. So adding in the reverb kick allowed me to fill that space
