First of all - I love your nickname, so I can't be brutal in rating your mix)
Secondly - song is a PURE JAWESOMENESS.
I feel happy for you, because you can mix things like this.

To make it totally far out - use and send chorus sound of guitar from the left channel to the right channel to better balancing, cuz now It clearly too loud in left ear.
All cymbal accents might sound better with more reverb and a little bit higher volume.

Cheerz, John.
Really love this song, thank you for this thread.

Snare accents with heavy reverb also might sound amazing.
Pauses after words "And you will run to that stone" - as for me I'd also pause the bass sound.
Gonna be more impressive.

Mate, nice song. Great drums. Think the bass is a bit muddy though.

Excellent mix

Just out of curiosity, has the mix been mastered, or or this just a mix??

Either way, it sounds very good!

Firstly, thank you for your feedback guys.

The J - Haha, no it's not The Fray. The band are called From Forests (www.facebook.com/wearefromforest). I really liked one of their other songs they had recorded themselves, so I contacted them about working with me.

I think you are right about balancing the guitar on the left a little more. More reverb on the snare? You are a mad man! I had a listen to one of the Fray's songs after you mentioned it and they had a delay running into the snare reverb which sounded quite fun.

james - Thanks. I really struggled with keeping this clear, as it was recorded in their small untreated studio. Is it 200-400Hz your talking about or lower?

Dan - Cheers, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. No this hasn't been mastered as there was no budget. I did give it a quick run with a limiter to bump it up a few dB, just to the point where I couldn't hear it working.
