It seems like that doesn't it? threads like these will get 700 views with 4 comments, but if you say something like, "In my opinion, you can emulate a great analog sound through soft synths", and you're in for 20 pages worth of feedback
Anyway, I had a full length listen to this album through a pair of KRK Rokit 8s and I gotta say, you've done a fine job with this. I also listened through Ultrasone PROline 650 headphones too. It sounded a little bright through the cans, but thats typical of them.
I do this as a hobby and am by no means a pro, so my comments might not carry much weight, but if I produced this I would be very proud of myself. I think the drums sound great for the style and I love the guitar tone, especially the acoustic sound at the beginning of Steal Away! Most of all, there weren't really any sore thumbs sticking out. It seemed like you got everything to gel nicely including the vocals.
The fact that this hasn't seen a mastering house is just awesome, because honestly at this point I think, why bother? It sounds pretty consistent and balanced like it is, no?
The concept art is just bad ass!
If I had to dig deep for criticism, I might say that at times, the bass was a little top heavy and dry for my taste. It seemed a bit midrangey but only on certain tracks. Maybe it's that Fender jazz, but definitely not a show stopper by any means.
So, are you actually in this band, or did you just produce the album?
If this were the type of music I listend to on the regular, I'd have no problem paying 7 bucks for this. Awesome job, and I hope one day my mixes can come close to this.
