yeha, the bass seems to be missing from the big(ch) sections. Too missing for me. Especially when it(thebass) sounded so well thought out in the verses. It feels like the sound of the mix in the choruses would be great for some kind of breakdown, but I miss the low end not being there every time.your production tricks are fabulous, and very current sounding to me, great solo & sound too. the overall mix compression and eq might be a little too intense. I wonder if the extra dynamics in the chorus might be enhanced by not using as much compression. It might be good to allow the chorus to get louder and not squash it so much.But it is an awesome piece of work. Great to hear it!
