Thank you very much for listening and critiquing as well as the awfully kind words, it really means a helluva lot to me!
Yeah, I pretty much did not feature the clean guitars in the choruses at all. When I listened to your mix again, it pretty much hit me like the proverbial brick in the head. After turning them up, dialing in some delays and some widening, the choruses now open up properly. Lesson learned: Make sure to reference the producers mix section by section to make sure you do not miss production features that really help the track.
Thanks again, Patrick!
P.S.: For anybody listening to the mix after this post, the linked track in the opening post has already been replaced by the improved version.
