An attempt to take on board some of the comments made re mix of the original posted the other day.

Ha...I put my heart into a synopsis about 20 minutes ago in the original thread!

Bit busy now but sounds good on first listen!

Ok, I cancelled what I was doing to defeat my busy-ness.

This mix is definitely easier on the ear.

(By the way "busy" refers to me and not your song, in case that was unclear).

First of all, great song. I find myself smiling and head-nodding along, even more than with the first version. To my ears this mix is way better, but in case you care to hear one random guy's remaining comments....

The section from 0:17 to 0:33 between the exit of the hot lead guitar and the entrance of the bass feels abruptly quiet. Maybe the bass could come in earlier.

I wish the bass had more punch and midrangey higher harmonics. It feels a bit flat compared to the guitars, even though I think I hear some distortion. Also, it seems like the bass part is mostly playing on the up-beats, but especially during the chorus, I miss the bass on the downbeat at times.

Finally, I actually thought there were a couple of moments where the vocals were ever so slightly too loud this time, but nothing a little more compression couldn't solve.
