    Not that Mark is the only one, but I'm so happy to hear a male voice in the
    male range. I'm tired of boy bands singing like altos!

    Strong compression of impulse sounds (guitar, drums) on top of continuous
    sounds (vocals, keyboards) is always obvious. Is there no way to compress
    the individual tracks before mixing with the smooth parts? The principal
    culprit is the bass. When it hits, other parts shrink.

    The lead vocals suffer around 1:30 when the backup vocals enter. I can't
    tell if it's the BUV taking mix space, or the leads going into a higher,
    more strident range without ANY increase in volume. A quiet shout is
    quieter than a quiet whisper.

    I like the delay feeding the reverb.

    Hey, thanks!

    I compressed the instruments individually... but also placed a Waves C4 and
    L1 across the master to do a poor man's mastering... hopefully, that's what
    you heard!

    Thanks for the comments... I definitely could have punched up the lead vox a
    bit more where you point out... there is a bit of a volume punch up (all
    automated mix) though.

    Thanks for the review.
