I've noticed that the first track "Prologue" is missing quite a few stems. I'll fix this soon

******This has been fixed now. Enjoy.

Nice job man, I dig the mix.

I like what you did but I think the amount of reverb could be settled down a bit, I personally think that reverb should mostly be used as something that isn't noticeable. Usually using it to just make things sit together better. Also, I think the dynamic of the mix could change a bit to become a little more engaging. Try some automation on panning, on my mix I panned the verse guitars center and the chorus in stereo and I also automated the volume of the mix bus to get a bit of a volume boost for those chorus parts. The reverse on the backing vocals for the outdo is a nice touch though. Keep up the great work.

Thx Himynameisrenzo for the reply :) , yeah I listened to it again , I think you are right the reverb is a little bit too much... , I did some minor automation on compression but it's not panning but I think it's not too noticeable... , To tell you the truth I was goin to elevate the dynamic at the chorus part... but I got no idea what to do... , so maybe I'll try your sugestion... :)

So, Slate dropped a couple new plugins into their everything bundle, and of course I needed to play.  I just grabbed a random track and wound up with #4 - Of March and May.  Sounds like a good album, man.  I like it a lot.

If I had more time, I'd probably go through and automate the acoustic guitars to sit a little better volume-wise, and then to hit harder after the breakdown-y section.
