What do you think of this?

Hi guys, i'd like to get your comments or suggestions about the mix and master of our demos if it's good or what areas might need to be worked more? Thanks. http://soundcloud.com/godma

    Hi The Hippie, 
    Tell Me Sample: Technical distortion.  Vocal is too soft.  Need clarity.
    Same on Tsundre.
    Fry Why is better overall.  You are mixing guitars too heavy overall.  
    I really like the melody on Granada.  Don't like the guitar in the chorus.  
    Don't like the songs not playing all the way through.

    'Tell Me' sounded pretty good (it has a passing resemblance to Radiohead's Creep though) Drums are solid, vocals need a boost to ride above the rest, the guitars are messy but maybe that was the intent. Bass could use some clarity.

    Thanks so much for your reply. We wanted a grunge plus shoegaze influence on our sound. sorry for not playing the songs through, i wanted to post it right away to soundcloud as soon as i finished the master. I'm new at mastering though, i just got into this very late of last year.

    Thanks man, yeah that was the intent sort off, we wanted heavy guitars like the grunge or shoegaze stuff. I've been playing for long time since the early 90s but mastering a song i'm new at this just a very few months ago though.

    I liked the Girl in Granada melody...very surly. But when the distorted guitars come in, you totally lose your midrange...like completely. So it sounds pretty bad. And there's really no way to have meant to to do that. Because your vocal EQ remains intact.

    You have a good voice - which is what I look for!

    Thanks for the compliment. Is the bass levels ok? Is it too low or just enough?
