I will, but I took a listen to it anyway and I do think it’s better balanced.
Hey nothing you can do about that, I get it. Maybe you can change the dynamics around to make it pop a bit more. The thing with the drums is that when the track starts, you hear the drums so clearly that when the rest of the instruments come in, the drums are now stuck in my brain as the focal point. The drum pattern is certainly very interesting but there’s little variation which is why it shouldn’t be the focal point of the music.
If I was working with this track I might try a few different things and hear how they sound:
Automate the drum volume and reverb, have the drums fade in with a lot of reverb and as the volume comes up, bring the reverb level down almost till it’s completely dry. Insert a beat of silence before the bass comes in. Have the drums come in at least 3 db below where they are now, bring them up to full volume on the chorus, they sound great on the chorus as is.
Do the old bit where you filter the drum intro to a very narrow band pass, something like 500hz to 1khz, that is nuke everything below 500hz and above 1khz, make the intro sound lo-fi like a telephone conversation, then have the song start normally for dramatic effect.
Change the reverb on the intro to a close room reverb sound with lots of early reflections, then open it up when the rest of the instruments come in.
That’s just a few ideas that might help change up the dynamics of the song so the drums don’t get boring quickly. Like I said, I think it’s a great song.
