    This is a really cool sound. The guitars and distorted bass really give this a nice groove. All the guitars sound first rate.

    The vocal is a little tough to hear.

    I didn't think the cymbal sound was all that bad. A bit of SC swirliness, but not horrible.

    It's squashed to death.

    The snare is kind of far back. Lightening up the limiting might help with that. THings are almost pumping.

    The bass is a little on the sterile side.

    Mostly just pointing out nits. I really liked it.

    Edit... I didn't care for all the delay.

    Another good tune Kev. Are you triggering samples? My only nits are the hihat chips are a little prominent (& I like chips) and maybe a toch too much verb on the vocal. Nice job

    Nice. You rarely hear songs today that are produced and mixed like this. Thank you for showing us this song!

    As usual, Trip ... you hit the nail square on the head. It WAS squashed. I just severely lightened up on both the drums and the two buss. I also eq'd the guitar a little differently and brought it up. Vocal came down just a hair. New mix is on the link.

    Thanks bud!

    Great catch Kier! Yes. Kick, Snare, and Toms needed to be BIG on this tune ... so I blended samples in and under to fatten up the sound. I brought the vocal effect down a little in the new mix also. I agreed with you.

    Thanks for jumping in K!

    Most welcome BG. Less is more, I think.

    I listened on cans, I thought is had a very good solid sound. I guess since this is a later mix, I didn't hear the issues commented on.

    On my system/headphones everything sounded balanced. Really good mix.

    Thanks Dave! I took the advice given and believe I've got it pretty well sorted in this mix.

    I am going to go against the grain here according to what everyone else has said. I don't mean it to be disrespectful, but everything sounds good except the guitar. To me, the tone(not the playing) just doesn't sound that good. It just sounds like it has way too much mid and high ranges and/or a not very good distortion patch. I know I am in the minority so I am just leaving you with my thoughts on it and its only my opinion. The song IS awesome, great playing all around and well constructed, I just think the guitar tone is holding it back.
