I'd have to agree Mark, the vocal is up front and on top, OK? But seems oddly "bone dry".
The vocal performance is also quite pitchy and the timing is all over the place to be honest. The end result of that IMO results in the typical "amateur vocal placed over a tightly gridded backing track" that is unfortunately all too common. There's a disconnect......
Put another way, it feels like the track was separately created in an attempt to accompany the vocal.
I'd have to disagree with this interpretation of "radio ready"
But perhaps he just listens to different stations than I?
