    Mix is pretty loud and powerful. Piano makes the song interesting, nice piano riffs.
    The vox are good... sounds like they may benefit from running them through a de-esser. The distorted backup vox that jump in here and there stick out a little much at times (especially when chorus starts). Maybe lower the distortion on them a bit.
    Otherwise, the mix sounds good to my ears. Catchy catchy track

    Nice job! Very modern, like some of the stuff I hear on the radio now (Fall Out Boy, etc). I actually didn't mind the distorted backup vocals much -- I've heard songs with even more distortion...I guess it depends on where you want to lie between a "rage" sound and a "rock" sound....or something like that. Beware of the chorus? effect on the lead vocals -- they're fine now, but don't increase the effect too much more...the lead vocals are good, it'd be a shame to cover them up too much with an effect.

    Awesome!

    i can't stand emo or nu rock or whatever the new lable is for this style of music.............that must mean it will work just fine on the radio.

    Sounds really 70's to me - esp the vocal compressed effects.
    the Snakedog's comments about b/vox are spot on.
    Too "compact" a mix for my ears - all squashed into a radio sized box if that makes sense - but from your heading it's probably the aim.

    Sounds very, very radio-ish. Not my cup of tea at all. But the mix and production sounds great. Playing is good and a lot of nice touches. No nits here. good job.

    Or maybe they just have some musical integrity.
