MHO :
- vocals are good, indeed they could do with some extra punch (or maybe
it's the guitars that sound 'too heavy' when compared to all the rest, not
just the vocals)
- the guitar is quite nice : both soundwise and the rifs
- bass sounds very muffled, it needs definition and punch. also i think it
just a bit too much that the bass keeps following the kick. might be nice
in the intro, but i would go with a continuous bass line after the intro
- i second Erik's opinion about the drum in the chorus : '4 to the floor'
always works
- drums : i'm hearing almost no cymbals, except for a finy crash somewhere
in the middle

Oh, sorry, I missed it. Where?

THis is definitely the kind of stuff I listen to.

Nice snappy drum sound at the start, great guitar sounds, vocals
sound really good. This is a great piece. My only slight criticisms
are for the composition. The piece rocks along at one constant
intensity level and it would be nice if the intensiy varied a bit
more between the verse and the chorus, or even just dropping in a
middle eight [0]. The other thing is the song's melody has a very
square, 4/4, on the beat rythm and it would be nice if there was
a little syncopatiom to the melody. Something that can be really
effective is straight beats in the verse and syncopation in the
chrous.

Cheers,
Erik

[0] I really love the way bands like The Pixies and Nirvana (think
=A0 =A0Lithium) do the soft verse and loud chorus, but it doesn't have=
