My thoughts exactly. I don't hear any glaring technical owies... everything sounds clean and present. Maybe the snare has a tad (and I mean smidge) excessive over-ring, but that is purely my own opinion... could still could work fine for the song depending on key etc. Nothing wrong with a mono OH too... if there are no tom rolls and ride work featured
I think the kick is fine... though svart has a good suggestion to maybe move the D12 another inch or so into the kick... I don't think you would have to move it much more than that.
I think you are on the right track (um... tracks... pardon the pun). Would be cool if you could post a mix later with the backing tracks, so we could hear the drums in context.
