Haven’t rated many mixes here yet, but this is also a hard contest to judge with a decent mix to begin with … so I had to use one my own cooked up methods to come out with a fair rating. I have broken my feedback into scores and categories as Mix Engineering Related and Non Mix Engineering Related.
Non Mix Related (half weight)
Feeling (emotion delivered)
The song itself had a lot of emotion to begin with and you did well to preserve it. Most likely could have polished the vocals a bit more with some slight tuning and virbato effects here and there but I understand if you took a purist approach.
Creativity (additions and their effectiveness)
I did not notice any additions, but I have also not dissected the track deeply yet. If you added anything please specify in description so I can rate them properly
Mix related (full weight)
Overall the aesthetics were very good. Wise compression choices.
The delay is not in synch with the harmonies which throws the sibilance levels around.
Reverb on the chorus is a bit muddy
Balance (tone, levels, clarity)
Good rich tones and volume levels over all, nothing feels drowned out. Clarity is good, low end reverb could be cleaned up a bit that is clouding the resonance a bit after the chorus
Total score: 6.67 (7) calculated using partial weight method as [(4+0) +8 +8 ]/3]
