Is this ready for mastering?


since this is a question to all the mastering pro's, i decided to post this here.

some of you may know that i've been working on a greek rock project. because i did everything (writing, playing the instruments and engineering) we decided to let somebody else mix this stuff.
but the studio that did the mixing got robbed, and although he got most of his stuff back, he's still working on re-wiring everything.

but we want to finish it asap, cause the record company is waiting for it, so it came back to me again to do the mixing.

i tried to make it as dense, but transparent as possible. now my question is, is this ready for mastering? is there anything i should change in terms of levels or frequencies, to achieve the best possible condition for a loud but non-squashed mastering result? is the overall sound quality even good enough to get a good result?

you can listen to the song here:

i posted the same song some months ago, but this is a completely new mix.

any comments are welcome!
thanks for your replies!

thanks for you answer.
i want to make this as good as it gets, and after working on the songs for a few hours, i can't really tell if it's good, or if something's missing.
anybody else wanting to lend me a second set of ears is very welcome.

btw, is there enough headroom to work with? i'm doing everything in 16bit and want to use as much bandwidth as possible.
