Constructive criticism on the mix - either pull the lead vocals back or push the harmony vocals forward. Needs better overall vocal balance. Bring the melody guitar parts up a bunch because there's lots going on that adds to the song musically but you strain to hear it.


You’re not the first person to mention this, so I’ll talk with my engineer and see about tweaking that. It’s not like I’ve uploaded it to any streaming services, so I can always change little things like that.

There really is a ton going on in the guitars. There’s like a dozen different melodies, harmonies, and counter melodies going on at times. I kinda went overboard at times

And as an '80s rock fan, maybe try and put at least four bars of Ace Frehley level guitar solo in there somewhere.



I’m not a very good guitar soloist, primarily a rhythm player. I had thought about doing a guitar solo in that song, but opted to do the reggae bass solo instead. I did record a solo in one of the other songs we recorded that I haven’t posted yet.

Yeah, none of these artists have ever released anything that sounds like the Pop Punk of my adolescence.


MGK dropped an album that sounds like early Blink even has Barker on the album with him

MGK is the face of pop punk in 2021. Upside down world keeps on keeping on. The track he did with Yungblud and Bert from used is great. Love race is as old school punk emo as it gets. Going see him Oct 6th.

September 2022, going to Vegas to see MCR.
