Hey Don - man you've managed to generate a lot of urgency with your drums. Makes for a rollicking good ride, especially as the song builds towards the final solo and close. Nice. Maybe the snare rim shots during the intro could come down a bit - Its hard to tell as I'm listening in cans but I'm having problems listening to them with the volume cranked.

Cheers, Simon

RE: James May: 'Hold On You'
I like it. Nice sound, good balances.

Somethings came to my mind:
Something brute with snare sound. I wonder if the drummer is hitting too hard the snare when compared to the touch of guitars.
I wonder if the stereo effect (modulation?) in bass is too strong now? Just a little bit less, and the bass would be more focused and in the same sonic space.

RE: James May: 'Hold On You'
Cool . Like the balance across everything. Its quite a narrow mix for my taste I would pan things out a bit more even though the el. gtr does widen things a bit toward the end. Also I think the reverb combined with the narrow stereo is pushing everything into the distance a bit. Having said that I think you've achieved a good illusion of a roomSmile
