Well, I'm not Jeff...and my writing prowess doesn't even compare to his. But I really like the songs and the mix. These sound very good for unmastered versions! And I agree about using Slate's technique of gclip+gclip+voxengo elephant. After playing around with that and getting the hang of it...my masters (if you can call them that) definitely sound better now. The loudness I want, without the drums being squashed.
