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)

Code:
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)
F RUR'U' F' //CMLL1 (6/27)
RUR'U' R'F R2 U'R'U' RUR'F' //CMLL2 (24/41)
U2 M' U2 M' U M2 U' //lucky L6E (7/48)
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.

Critique me please and thank you
The only comment I have on your 3rd try is that for the LSE, you may solve UF-UB instead of UR-UL.
It's much simpler in this case: U M U' M' U M2' U M U2 M' U'

I made an attempt at multi-slotting in second block and intuitive eolr in lse.
Also I'll work on CMLL's. I learn a set then the next day I drill it. So far I have O, H, Pi, and U.
