Alright! There's a lot to like about this mix. It's clear, it's clean, and I actually felt some IMPACT on those big re-entries. The tasty organ licks usually came through without cluttering up the mix. Cool.
One thing I just can't get behind are those chorus background vocals. They JUMP out, in a weird way . . . in my head, I get this image of a ghost materializing behind Daniel's shoulder, yelling soooooongs!, and then poof! Gone. Kudos for trying something new and different, but it just didn't work for me in this case.
On a side note, the bass seems a bit boomy. I fought this bass for a while trying to get rid of the boom, so who knows? It could just be my speakers. I hope others can chime in on this for some perspective. Also, I notice a lot of high end in a lot of these mixes. It's pretty fatiguing - but I could see that being just from having listened to this song 1800 times today.
This entry is no slouch.
