    Hey, what do you guys think of this song mashup I made ! I've been a Linkin Park fan since around Grade 6 or 7 so I hope I did LP justice with this mashup. Any constructive criticism would be great, thanks!

    The "Save A Life" vocal sounds a little too close-up and intimate for the instrumental under it. You could reduce the lows and add a tiny bit of dly or something like that to make it a little spacious like the drums are, make that blend happen. Also, warp the vocal rhythmically a bit more to really fit the beats - that singing is kind of loose and doesn't work 100% with the militaristic precision of the instrumentation

    The best idea here is the first chorus w/ the low-passed, high tenor "What I've Done" vocal underneath the high-passed, lower "Save A Life" vocal. That contrast is great

    Great ideas, the execution could had been better(basically the things that minuteforce pointed out), but I still enjoyed it a lot.

    Now I am even more excited for the idea of the next LP album being slower/melodic/pop-ish.
