Positive Comments: Somehow I knew when it was “Rock Gothic” it would be Signal 30! The cocky “Joan Jett” vocals are always fun and full of sass. I wish I could see the lyrics because I think there’s a good message here and some biting commentary. You guys always sound like you’re having fun and doing exactly what you wanna do. And that’s the point isn’t it?

Constructive Comments: The overall EQ feels unbalanced with a lot of low and some very high but not enough midrange guts to make it spank. There’s a lot of ride cymbal but not much snare crack or thump of the kick. Getting the drum sound better would do so much here. I’m not sure the drum pattern is really appropriate for the tune though–8th note ride pattern doesn’t seem like Gothic. A more down and dirty kick/hh/snare groove would be better IMO. If the guitar was a bit less rectified and more midrange present it would be nice.
