Re: last Minute Landmine
Typing as I listen, sounds pretty nice overall.
Vocals are very up front in the first verse, which is not a bad thing, but they then feel like they sit back again when the chorus kicks in. Personally, I fell that you have the choruses spot on, so perhaps bringing the vocals down a touch (not by much, a couple of db should be fine).
Distorted drums are a great idea. They are very distorted and lack some punch, so perhaps using a distortion bus and blended the original drums in would provide a little more impact. of course, that may not be what you were after at all.
Those warped synths and staccato bleeps were great. Best thing I've heard in that section yet! Really kept it moving and more importantly, they fit!
This is a really nice mix, and most of my comments and suggestions are merely personal preferences. The only thing I see that would need revision if I were the client, is the transition between verse and chorus to make that vocal not appear slightly smaller in the latter. Pretty darn good effort here my friend! Well done!
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.
