looking for a few good ideas

Erase and start again

In the process of mixing and remixing "Listen" I think I have figured out what is wrong. The crunchy guitar isn't letting the other instruments breath, and what's more, it obnoxiously interrupts the vocals. It's gotta change, duh. As a result, I've been re-doing the guitar part and I think it is somewhat cooler than it was. Downside: I'm still not done with this behemoth.
