    Alright, let the rip fest begin.

    I hope it's not too rookie for some of you.

    Cool tune...

    Mix wise your vox is being buried by the guits....
    the tracking seems good it's just that you should be able to find better space in the mix for each track...
    perhaps lower the volume of the guits slightly to give the vox a chance to be heard better .....

    I like the song man....
    Take it easy,
    Joe

    Okay, I'm going to absolutely rip this apart piece by piece.

    I like this as much as anything I've ever heard on this site. I like this better than 95% of the commercial cuts I've ever heard in my life.

    Hope you're not crying or anything.

    Bump the vocal level a tad.

    Thumbs up

    Very cool tune and performance. A liitle too much compression on the guitars. I can hear it pumping. And as mentioned push the vocal up.

    Yeah, I actually added compression and limiter to the whole mix with t-racks. I'll tame it some and bump the vocals up. Thanks for the suggestions and keep em coming if you can fellas.

    Great sound and a good performance. Not a bad first submission. I agree that the vocals are a bit burried but nothing that can't be fixed.

    Good job!

    yeah the "mastering" job is the only thing that is really annoying...

    i bet if you went back to the original, got the vocal level a bit better, you'd have a much better mix on your hands.

    great job.

    allow me to pull a chris harris - your voice really reminds me of Jonny Reznik (goo goo dolls). good stuff.

    never one to get all of my thoughts into my first post (that's a sign that i kept listening and really liked it!)...

    i love how unstructured this song is. it sounds very stream of concioussness...love it.

    I really like it. Cool song, very good vocal.

    I have a few mix comments, which may or may not be useful:

    I'd like to hear the voice more clearly. Turn it up a wee bit, but maybe also carve out a bit of space in the centre guitar with some gentle EQ?

    (By the way, how have you tuned that middle guitar? It sounds really loose and cool, and the slight string buzz on the bottom string makes it sound almost sitar-like. Nice.)

    The left-hand guitar is, to my ear, too far out to the side, and a bit exposed. I'd bring it in to about 3/4 Left, and maybe soften the sound a little. Try a touch of reverb maybe?

    Other than that, very nice. I'm looking forward to hearing the next version.

    Cheers
