the price for waiting

hey,

please have a listen and tell me what you think.
it was recorded (in a couple of crappy rooms and kitchens with crappy gear) last year but I just remixed it.
do you think that the vocals are too low?
any other comments? I am mixing on headphones at the moment (sorry... )

cheers and thanks!

I think the backing/doubling vocals on the verses steals some attention to the song vibe. Sounds much better on the chorus. I think you need to cut some lows from the lead vocals or clean up somewhere down in the mid/low. The mix seems flat and boring. Remove the comp on the main buss and bring in some dynamics.

For this song I would mix less low end and get some dirt garage ala 1964. I would like to hear more room... Try your favorite garage room (ha!).

I think the chorus sounds pretty good... The verse/intro needs some love ideas to fit the rest of the song...

I think the lead vocals need some space in the mix - it feels a little chocked right now.

First of all, good song, I like it. The vocals seems to be a little flat in the intro and a little too hot, and then toward the end of the song they seemed to creep back a bit. The drums also seemed flat, they could use some air. I would take advantage of the room more to get that 60's vibe with those drums.

but what to do when the room sounds like ****?
it was recorded in a bad sounding rehearsal room, drums were only recorded close so no room mics
the only way to get more room is to create artificial room then...
