Maybe the vocals are a little more bearable this time.

Please please please critique the mix, not the song. I'm not the band. It's definitely not a perfect song.

I'm afraid that the vocals still are unbearable. The mix is pretty good though. I'd personally would like to hear a bit more of the drums and especially the bass. I'd also use more of the stereo field, now it seems like most of the sounds are panned hard right or left.

I agree with the last guy about the panning needing some variable variety.
It would be nice to hear more bass of the kick drum instead of just the whacking sound of it. But I'm the kind of person who makes songs where the kick drum is the loudest instrument in the mix, so don't mind me.

You'd be doing the band a favor by doing a minus mix without the vocals.
The actual song is ok without the vocals. The vocalist sounds like cookie monster vomiting too much. Or maybe do it with vocals, but only spoken word. SPOKEN word, not cookie monster vomited word.

Sorry to be hardcore in this review. The actual music I do like which means that the mix didn't interfere with it.

i personally dont hate the vocals. they are just twice as loud as everything else. it's difficult to place vocals like that into a mix. i have always thought of placing them as more of an instrument. theres no "real" pitch to the voice. I would back it off 6-10dB and give it a shot. just a thought.
also, i agree with the stereo field comment. i have traditionally mixed this type of music in mono first then splitting to stereo when i feel i have a good mono mix. this will help with the vocal placement, low end clarity, and really the entire mix. i would try creating a mono mix then building the stereo image around that. however, when you are done with the stereo mix, sum back down to mono, and you should have a good mix in mono as well.
other than that........ROCK!
