Before I say anything, I play music, but am in no way a music scholar or 
producer. So I am giving my impressions from that point of view.

To me this is an album of music rather than a track. There are pronounced 
changes from one part to the next and as such some that I liked better 
than others. If I was going to keep this for personal listening I would 
probably just use the parts I like :)

My first impression is that the mixdown seems to do well at allowing me to 
hear everything. So even if the lead line may seem low to me sometimes, it 
still works well because I can still hear it and follow with no effort. 
(maybe some of the guitar is bit low.. but I tend to mix it too hot)

I liked the choice of sounds used over all too. I like the clav sound BTW.

The mastering is fine to me, but there are others on this list with a 
better ear. I enjoy the dynamic space.

Are the drums recorded or sequenced? (live or samples)
