Modern Rock track

Here's a song I wrote a few years ago and was on my first CD which is now out of print (just a small run). Anyway, I'm remixing the entire CD for another release, and I just wanted a little feedback on this particular song.

Thanks so much for your time!

Not too bad. Seems like the rhythm guitar could use maybe a little space. But over all nice....even though a little too compressed for my ears.

Wow, you're right. I checked it out this morning, even before I read your post, and the overcompression made my eyeballs hurt.

I replaced the mix with a less compressed version.

Great guitar and drum sounds, very clean and professional.

But the rhythm guitars seem off compared to the drums. I would do some editing touch ups on one or the other.

I think the mix could be bigger with some wider panning, and/or some panned-out delays. Also, you could make a bit more room for the vocal with some small EQ cuts on the guitars or synth I think.

And purely my opinion, but if you ever re-record the song I would suggest trying to increase the tempo by a couple BPM. It just seems to drag a bit.

I can tell it was tracked very well, and you're definitely making progress on the mix.
