    Drums sound great. Same with bass and guitar. Man, how do you accomplish that bass tone in the mix?

    Vocals are a little far back for my taste, and sound pretty tinny, especially compared to the good quality recording from the drums and other instruments.
    Let's dispense with all the philosophical high-minded reasoning and well articulated thoughts and get down to some good old name-calling and insults!

    Music is sounding pretty good....nice and fat. Fatten the vocals up a bit....maybe more compression...
    They just seem to get lost at times in this mix. I think you did a good job on the delivery, so mess with them a bit to get them sitting better. The music is pretty tight...sounds good. Fun tune man...

    Excellent song - I am cursed with a similar gonad at work, thus I feel your pain. Unfortunately he is smart but not witty so it's slightly more painful. I like the chord patterns in this - kinda punk, kinda rock.... The solo is fabulous. Which guitar(s) did which parts?

    AFA mix goes, the vocals are a little trebley in the chorus and lack definition in the verse (i.e I can't make out the words). The big thing about the verses though is that they seem loud enough - so maybe it's effects that are washing out some definition. BUT It's pretty normal - I cannot understand the words in 50% of the songs I listen to....so take that with a grain....

    Thanks, the bass guitar was recorded thru a pod xtlive with the bass expansion, drums were Beta Monkee loops...agree about the vox...I will try and fix em with my next mix attempt.

    Yeah, I am putting the vox more out there on the new mix...at least I'm finally drying em' up ....I usually drench em in reverb and delay ...thanks for listening...glad ya like it!

    I was actually kinda stuck for a second verse on this , and my wife , who was trying to get my 5 yr old son to eat a chicken patty sandwich, he is a picky eater, so she kept telling him that the sandwich was like a chicken nugget on a bun( he loves chicken nuggets)...it didn't work, but for some reason, that line stuck with me and seemed to fit here
    I think the next time my real band plays a gig we will call ourselves the "Bun Nuggets".
    Thanks for checking it out!

    Thanks Idol.....yeah, this guy I work with is incredibly lame..I could probably do a whole concept album about him!..I used my Gibson Firebird Studio for all the Rhythm guitar tracks(2...1 recorded and then split between two tracks, panned hard left and right, and then nudged so they are just a tad out of alignment....and then a second stereo track)The amp settings were a Marshall and a Boggie thru the Pod xtlive, the lead guitar was my Variax using the Les Paul Jr. model thru a Fender deluxe amp model on the pod...I had a Tube Screamer and a Wah turned on and kinda partially depressed for the tone...all emulated thru the Pod.Wanted the lead to sound kinda skanky

    Hey dude, this sounds cool.

    The guitar playing is pretty tight. I'm pretty sure that you got that done one go. Sometimes I have to punch in even my rhythms 'coz I don't have the patience (read skill) to play it without mistake from the top thru the end.

    Anyhoo, in this mix, I would only recommend boosting the bass slightly.

    The vox sound good so don't drench them in anything as you said you'd normally do. The vox sound good.

    I like it. I love your titles, too. I personally like the voacls the way they are for this song because they're punky in nature, so I don't mind them sounding a little raw.

    Drums and mix is great, man.

    I think you mean pseudo-intellectual. But he could have probably told you that
