Please don't be too strict as this is my second full mix ever 🙂
When I first heard the original mix I found it too long, too Eurovision'ish (if you know what I mean). too whiny. It was also lacking clear development of the story, so at some points I even couldn't understand what part of the song I'm currently listening to 🙂 So I started off with cutting out the most whiny and boring pieces and muting all the guitar FX tracks. After making some temporary mixes I decided to retrack all the remaining guitars except solo (had only 1.5 hours for that unfortunately) as they weren't complimenting the emotional vocal line good enough.
What do you think?
