Same here. Though I thought the first track to be the weakest. I think
the title track would make a better opener.

I think the mixing is a bit strange. I suspect it's intentional, but I
found the stereo panorama, err, interesting. IMHO the guitar should be
more center, and the bass dead-center anyway, but I guess the setup is
intended to give a vintage, session-in-the-barn feeling. :) Also vocals
are not quite "in front" enough, maybe it's the reverb settings. It all
sounds a bit like the listener was standing right next to the guitar amp
but the rest of the musicians are farther away.

Soundwise (and also in style) it reminds me a lot of "Texas Flood" by
SRV, which is a good thing. Maybe have a listen to that album and see if
any mixing ideas can be had from it?

Still, I enjoyed listening to it as a whole!
