A little work on the snare and a long fadeout, as James wanted in his posting!

RE: Okay, I´m also trying a mix of this really nice song
Sounds very balanced to me, there's nothing out of place and everything is quite under control. But in general it sounds more like a demo than a finished mix. Now, it's unlikely I know better than you, so it'd be hard for me to pinpoint at the reasons, though I can try:

First, main reverb feels too boxy. I don't know how many tracks are sending to it, but the whole ambience is like a tape recorder on the floor (not that bad, but still boxy and roomy). There's a claustrophobic thing about the mix, I'd say it's because of that.
I can't tell if you replaced something else beside the snaredrum (there are misstriggers and removing the rimshot is a big no-no), but that it's a maybe too tight and synthish snare sound, makes the mix heavier and slower and takes a lot of air from it.
It's also quite a dark mix, summing to that 90's studio demo feeling.

As I said, I'm far from an expert, so take it all with a grain of salt.

Thank you, for your statement!
I think you´re right. Especially in cause of the snare!
I killed the trigger and tried to open up the whole thing. On the other hand I like a little bit of darkness (maybe it´s my psyche .......) ;-)
