I have to admit the overall...low bit distortion? I'm not distracting. Is it just on the piano? I think. It just fills in the space between the notes and it feels like something between me and the mix. If it is a low bit distortion maybe raise it to 12 bits? If not, ignore that advice.

That aside the drums are powerful. Maybe inappropriately so but I like them too much and I'm biased. The vocal is a bit harsh on occasion when he really pushes but that's minor and I'm over analyzing.

I will say that, that effect aside it sounds fine. But this song needs something more than that. It's a subtle song and it needs to be a subtle song with a knife in it's belt. Safe but threatening. Does that help? Probably not. Still, I stand by my vague analogies because there's nothing technical to complain about and after that, critiquing art is tiresome. 7 thumbs up.

I only have earbuds to listen and mix with at the moment. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.
A mix doesn't have to be good, it just has to sound good.

Thanks for the feedback Roy. There's a lowpass on some of the instruments done with my harrison eq not much just some off the top. There's no distortion on the instruments but some on the reverb on the vocals a devil loc plus decapitator. The drums might be a little much but i liked the weight on them and the bass. Did this mix to test out my signal chain in the new stu. Ill rexamine it in the near future. Thanks again!
