    mac,

    This is a good song. To my ears, there is nothing wrong with the mix; though if it were mine, I would move the vocals back a bit. I love the harp track in the left center, simultaneous with the git leads in the right, good stuff.

    I think some 'verbed out backing vocal harmonies located way back in the mix would be very tasty.

    The song has that "twilight" vibe going on, you know, the introspective period of time between what has happened and what is about to start happening. The quality is really great, I dig all the sounds. I say, good work, good tunes, keep it up.

    peace and love

    Cheers for the comments Grey..

    General concensus is that the vox are too out front. Not often i make that mistake as i usually try to bury but was really happy with how they sound.

    I'll have a play....Thanks again

    Okay I'm listening to "Stars of Bravo" and I really dig it, love the melodies, sounds, vocals, and groove you have going. Just a feel good song.
    Except! I realize the thread title is "Drivin's into the sun. So...
    'Drivin' into the sun'
    Nice sounds, nice quality. Vox sound too loud in the mix... overpowers the music somewhat. Nice solo near the end.
    Excellent songs, enjoyed em

    I really dig the vocal "sound" but is indeed to loud in the mix. Overall nice song and nice sound man. What mic you use to record the vocals?

    Hey Snake, Glad you liked '...Bravo' thats one of my best. Haven't had a reply on 'Drivin' that doesn't comment on the vox being too loud so i guess i'll re-work..

    Cincy, they were recorded with a ADK a51 which i picked up off e-bay for about 40. You can still get em for about that price. I run it into a TFpro P3 pre amp, which is similar to the Joe Meek VC3Q.

    Thanks for the feedback guys..

    cool. I have the Studio Projects B1 which seems to be nice too, but I always am up for trying different sounds / mics.

    Thanks

    I just listen to it and I think it is a cool song. I also listen to Bravo and ave decided I like your song writing. Don't take this the wrong way but it kind of reminds me of a mix between Pete Yorn and The Lemonheads.
    Anytime a songwriter puts an image in your head or makes you feel different than you did before you heard the song I consider them a good songwriter.

    Appreciate all the comments guys.

    I've now re-worked this a little, toned down the vox, brought up the piano lines and added some subtle backing vox. Let me know what you think....
