sounds like SOAD
on the clean part... nice. I think. bass was off in parts. Guitars blended too much with everything else, and usually ended up droning. Not sure if that's what you meant for, but even if you did, it was over done. Piano was out of place in parts...
you are pretty much right about all those things.
the bass is a bit off, mostly because I recorded it in two layers (one panned to the left and one to the right), since I had very little experience with equalizers (this helped give the sound some wide-ness).
the heavy guitar in the chorous was kinda meant to blend in with the bass (I gave the bass distortion in the chorous to accoplish that).
but the brighter harmonic guitar just blends in too much, and is barely noticable.
the piano was meant to blend a bit more in with the vocals in the chorous (but since I used a really old version of cubase, there were no automation feature for me to change that).
the drums also drown a bit too much in my oppinion.
I wish I could change these things, but it did help a little to add a maximizer to the song (sound boost), it lowers volume of some frequencies (I think? I'm such a noob :P), the bass was definately too loud in the older version :)
thanks for the review :)
