Can someone critique my solve?
(I've "slowsloved" it and noted each step, so not a speedsolve, but pretty sure I've done it ± like that)

The FB is easy, you might tried to forecast where the DR edge will go.
In this case, it ends up in the worse situation.
With a small modification, you can get a much better position with an easy SB.

y2 x' // inspection
D F D M' D2' r' U F //
U' r' U' R U R2 U R U' r U r'

Anyway, you managed to solve the SB very well.
Not a critique but there was a way to solve DF-DB in the same time.
It's no longer Roux, though.

y2 x' // inspection
D F D' Rw U2 M' F' // FB (7)
U R2 U M' U' r2 U2 R2 U2 r U2 r' //
U r' U r2 U' r2' U' r2 U r' // OLL
x R' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2 // PLL A

CMLL are easy. Many algs are also used for OLL.
Ironically, using it gives a barely shorter solution, even using the "advanced" EOLR technique.

y2 x' //inspection
D F D' Rw U2 M' F' //FB (7)
R2 U' M' U Rw2 U' Rw2 U Rw M' U' R' //SB (12/19)
U' r U' r' U r' D' r U' r' D r // CMLL
U M2' U M U M U // EOLR
M' U M2' U2 M U2 M2' // LSE

In short, your solution wasn't bad at all.
