Re: Jackslab's Hated Love
Must be June. More people are saying they are busiest now than ever. So what does Brandon do, makes us work hard on being creative!
Cool intro with the drums. I love the fact that you applied reverb to the kick and the snare, sounds nice.
The vocals are nice and in front during the first verse and the guitars sound nice and crunchy.
Something happens once the chorus kicks in, that to me, does not work. I've listened three times and I can only guess at a couple of things. The right guitar is very fizzy and just seems to buzz throughout the whole lot. Because it so fuzzy and high gainy, it is really hard to distinguish any notes, so it just sounds like constant static. Secondly, the vocals sound too dry in this section and need to open up with a bit more reverb to give it a contrasting sound and some more air. (of course when I say "need to" you know I mean "may need to". Only a suggestion )
Pretty much everything else sounds good and spacious, well balanced and tonally solid. There are some serious timing issues that needed editing, especially the bass in the build up section (2:44), as the performance was not great to begin with. Don't get me wrong, this mix is really solid and it is just the not quite identifiable thing in the chorus that is bothering me. Good work!
Rules do not belong in music. Like food, there are flavours that work well together, but in the end, it's each person's taste that determines the quality of the meal.
