I couldn't find one of the original version and I have no idea who Mandi Seekings is tbh! XD

I don’t think there is much you can do in this case, but the good news is, I really don’t hear anything that’s an issue. If Aloe is dragging behind the beat in the original, there’s no reason why he can’t do it here! The timing and competing parts sound fixed to me in V3. Great work!

P.S. You didn’t have to change the title, but I’m glad you did! :1wink:

Version 3 is indeed a marked improvement, but I'm not ready to give this one the Front-Page treatment yet.

There are two occasions where you have Mandi and Mr. Black singing at the same time at the same intensity. Science tells us that women can listen to two conversations at once, but men cannot. We have to pick one at the expense of the other. We can switch back and forth very quickly, but we can't hear both messages at the same time. Playing two competing vocals together causes some people (notably males) frustration, and we never want to frustrate the listener.

The solution, I have found, is to make it obvious which one of the two vocals is the leader (the one your "supposed" to be listening to.) In both cases, I would recommend that you lower Mandi's volume considerably. Then when Mr. Black drops out, Mandi can come back at full strength.

I had a similar issue to contend with in my submission for this month's mash-off. Near the end of the song I wanted both vocals to sing, so I made it clear that P!nk was the leader and that Billie Joe was not. But I can still listen to Billie Joe if I want to. Got it?

Otherwise, it's very nice. :1smiley:
