Re: I'm on fire on the Inside!!!s
Typing as I listen,
Straight off the bat, there are a couple of things that seem a little out of kilter. The acoustic seems to have some odd frequencies that are cutting through in an unnatural way on the left. It may just be a volume thing, but the clicking seems a little distracting. Also, the first verse has the electric and acoustic panned left with nothing on the right which to me, seems a little unbalanced. Sure, you don't need everything evenly balanced, it just felt a little weird. I see you have panned the bass to the right to compensate but it too makes the mix a little odd. I am more than happy with panned bass even though many will say otherwise, I'm just not convinced it works here.
Guitars sound pretty good and aggressive. There are a few false starts and string noises that could use some cleaning up (@1:34 for eg). Interesting that you muted the guitar solo but left the backing instruments....
Snare sounds nice and the toms are mega full (Which I think works pretty well in this song, I went for similar. Not sure if everyone will agree though). I think it is one of the overhead tracks that has a lot of snare in it and you may have panned that left too, as the snare tugs that way a little as well.
Vocals sound quite nice and full with enough depth that suits the voice. You've given it lots of room to sit in with the panning of other instruments.
Don't get me wrong, this is a really solid mix with nothing in here being a deal breaker. As I for a third time, many of my previous comments are becoming less important as I get used to what you were going for. Fundamentally, there is not much wrong, just a few little issues that you may or may not agree with. Good job!
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.
