    Excellent

    Hello - this is my first ever post - wow!
    To me it sounds slick - performance, mix and master
    Only comment, and at mastering stage probably couldn't do anything about it even if you wanted to - I don't really like the way the drums go off to the distance at about 2:23 or thereabouts.
    A minor point though...
    Excellent work

    Nicely done - Professional mix right there in my eyes (or ears....)

    Dont know about the reverb at around 2:30 like Rohan said - It's a very digital reverb, dont know what to think about that.. I guess you either like it or dont.

    Overall though, impressive job

    Sounds good overall... But I agree with the drum reverb issue at 2:23. I think you definitely have the right idea of changing 'em up there, but kinda went about it the wrong way IMO. Maybe something like a bandpass filter would suit it better??

    With the doubled parts in the verses (more notably 16 seconds), maybe try a different EQ setting for the doubled part... Not a drastic change, but something to take away from the "harshness."

    Also at about 24ish seconds ("you pull me through"), the vocals seem to almost vanish.

    Take that for what its worth as its mostly just MY personal taste... and because I'm not a mixing engineer, nor do I claim to be!

    Great work though!

    The kick drum seems to be a little funny. Sounds like its cutting out the mix wen it hits. Probably some sort of bus send compression. or too much in some area of the low end or maybe even just too loud!
    I like the doubled vox, Dave Grohl stylee.

    Panning goes to the left at around 1.31

    Yeah anyway nice mix

    Not sure why the guy in the 2nd post thinks its at the mastering stage that the drums does that reverb fade out effect.

    Listening more the kick drum really is distracting me from the mix.

    This is very good. I enjoyed it. (listened on headphones)

    I think eck is right: there is something going on with the kick drum--it is effecting the whole mix. Could there be too much limiting on the master? Probably converting to mp3 doesn't help much. Something about the mix sounds too 'hot' or too smashed by limiting. I kind of like the alternate drum sound in the middle. The vox could maybe come up a bit more, too.

    Anyway, good job with this--keep tweaking on it!!!!

    Great song, great mix. I do like it very much. The only reservation I have also is with the drum effect around 2:20, other than that, great work!

    I think he meant that now it was mastered it might be too late to go back.

    Very intersting effect with the drums in the middle there.
    I can tell you why the kick drum hurts. Just look at the picture. It's completely squashed. I imported the song into Audacity see just how much... and there you go.
