I wonder why no one else is saying this but to me, the song is extraordinary all around. I first listened to your first post (just the music) and lyrics started popping in my mind. Then I saw your second post with the finished job. It really got me ! Commercial quality indie from my point of view.

All da best !

woah that is A LOT of sound!  good song.  my opinion on the mix is - through my earbud headphones at work i can't hear the vocals or the drums enough, all the echo/reverb-orama U2 guitars are way too loud. it seems like a good song though so well done, maybe just revisit the mix? could be it sounds different in your monitors.

I still like the song a bunch but I do have to agree that maybe the guitars went a bit too high in the mix. I gave a little listen to the dryer last version and I kinda like it better, more of a garage sound. All the new effects are cool but as said before, I would turn the guitar down a bit (I'm listening directly through the speakers of my Mac). Bottom line though is that the song is real good :-)

thanks for the feedback.. i basically took the original mixdown and added some additional compression on the master track.. it really brought everything out, especially sustaining the delays etc...

I like the mix, but might need to tweak the compression sustain and vocal mix...

Now I see... I am way far from being good at mastering but I think that the original mix was pretty stable (even) regarding volume. I would not have added compression.

One question I have is about vocals. What effects did you use on the vocal track ? I really liked how it came out.
