    The drums seem to come through very clearly. Good job on recording them.

    The vocals leave a lot to be desired, in style and substance, and it sounds as though there are some odd effects on them, (either that, or my speakers suck).

    It's a little guitar heavy for my taste. And, I may be biased, but I would boost the bass.

    I don't know much about recording though, so please take my advice with a grain of salt.

    I put a little flange on the vocals, and I do agree about the bass...but it's all something I can go back and work on :D

    Take the bunk off the vocals and ease off on the stereopanning, and it'll go a long way to make the track sound much better.

    I like the guitar playing and tone, and I'm not sure where I stand on the mix of guitar and bass...sometimes, it seems perfect, and sometimes it seems a *bit* guitar heavy. Maybe going with occasional volume envelopes on the guitar, but overall, it sounds great at the moment. The drums sound awesome. Good playing, and great recording of them.
