Nice sounding mix Big Grin !
I like to hear a touch more top end rattle on the snare cut through a little more just personal taste.
Top job Wink !

Snare sounds ok here,the kick needs a sweep i think its resonating a bit to my ears.
Well done,bass could be a tad loud
Thanks for the input guys. Here's another version with some work on the kick and snare.

Chorus vox too loud now and the bass is still miles to loud
Kicks lots better tho
I love that kick!!
mixing since April 2013
I listened the last version (2). Sounds good and weird in a good sense. I like the almost mono feel of this version.

Kick and snare make a nice pair. I wasn't sure if like the drum space or not, but after couple of listenings I think it creates a very special sound. So I like it.

Main vocal (or melodic speaker) drops around 1.15

Delay in vocals disturb me a little bit. It messes the pronunciation of words here and there.
Thanks for listening and giving valuable input, Olli. I agree with your evaluation and here is my attempt at implementing it.

Brave and bold and weird. I like it, although this version won't be chosen as a record version .

Maybe something should be done to those f- and s- sounds. Now the singers splutter too much, and it's not good for their credibility and rock image. Listen from 0:17 onwards. I'm afraid that de-esser wont help with that in right way. Maybe low-pass filter around 6K with 24db q-value. It may work or it may spoil the whole thing.
Nice mix overall.I would bring down some of the muddiness and bring the solo guitar up a bit and wide to have some wider stereo image.
Keep up bmullen,nice.
