The combo is good. :1cheesy:

The Panic! vocals don’t sound to be of the best quality to me…I don’t know if it’s the processing you’ve put it through or if it’s the track itself. It does seem like you could back off on their volume a bit--listen to the Train vocals within the track for a reference point. Also, the timing of the Panic! vocals seems to drag behind the beat a bit around 2:27-3:00.

As far as the structure goes, I am personally not a big fan of running through a whole Train verse before Death Of A Bachelor comes in…but that’s just one guy’s opinion. :1undecided: The backing vocals mashed with the Panic! lead vocals near the end was fantastic, though. I loved that.

Great cover art, too!

Thanks for the feedback! I’ll go back and play around with the structure some more and see if I like anything. I’ll check on Brendon’s vocals too :1smiley:

Ok! So you're right, the P!atD vocals aren't the best quality. They were the best I was able to find between voclr and YT. **Edit: HCD was kind enough to point me in the direction of some better resources, so I’ll look into those and see if I can find a better vocal track**

Regarding the lagging, I think I hear what you're talking about but I think the issue is that Brendon keeps taking these exaggerated breaths between some of the phrases that make that bit lag, but then he makes up for it in later phrases so that it ends up syncing back up with the instrumental (at least that's what I'm hearing/seeing after replaying that section ad nauseum and combing through the waveform). I've tried so many different ways to fix that already, and I think I'm done at this point (with that part at least) :1undecided:

v1.1 is up which is just decreased volume on Brendon from v1

v2 is re-structured, also with lowered volume on Brendon.

Good. I like it. The only thing I could recommend is added a echo on the last word for Panic before transitioning back into Train. It should sound like the Train echo a the end of each of their phrases for continuity. But that about it for me. Good job!

Thanks HCD! I haven't tried an echo before, but v3 is up with your suggested edit. It's been such a long time since I revisited this that I played with the volume a bit more too.

This is a project that I can get behind. :1smiley:
No suggestions. I'm going to put it on the Front Page.
