    Funk-rock track off my new solo project. I think it sounds pretty good, but maybe I'm just insane? I am in need of reassurance and/or critique. I've listened to my tracks so much now that I'm naturally adapted to them, so I want to try them on some fresh ears. Specifically, I'd like to hear opinions of my track based on these two points:

    1. How it sounds from an emotional perspective. Barring any technical/production impurities, does the track have soul and balls? Does it move you? Is it unique/interesting? How does it sound from the perspective of the AVERAGE listener?

    2. How it sounds from a professional/commercial standpoint. Quality of the recording and the mix.

    Thanks so much guys!

    **Note: I realize I use a lot of reverb, but I feel it adds to the "coked out" ambiance I want for this jam**

    I like it man. In stereo it sounds just fine. I have no idea how it would translate to mono playback but who cares. This isn't mainstream and I think your audience would love it.

    The kick and bass is buried. This could be the sound you are going for?

    Thanks dude. I'm glad you see the "avante-garde" appeal to this track. I struggled with keeping the bass and kick from being too boomy/muddy, so I turned them down a bit. I kept a lot of the low end on the guitars, which I feel drive the song- but it sounds like you think the song is better served if I crank the bass and kick up?

    I don't know. You could try it and post again. I would listen.

    Tell us your process, things like that help others a great deal. We love talking about our processes here.

    Here's an earlier mix (instrumental only) I did with the "boomy" low end I disliked. Give it a compare and let me know if I'm crazy. Appreciate the help audiokid!

    All others, what do you guys think about the original mix/song? Please keep the reviews coming!
