    great mix, not a huge fan of the choppy / cut up sound in the region 7:00-8:00 or thereabouts, but after that its really awesome.

    was that like gater or something?

    Just a couple points:

    - i think it needs to be a touch faster for the style
    - there is something weird going on with the bass like andydrew said when Thunderstruck kicks in to after it's out, might be too high as well
    - mixing it out/the next track in is rough as well, volume is uneven/gets really loud or quiet in some places as well, the majority of the mix points were well done tho
    - some good tracks in there overall

    Thanks guys

    Ya I've definitely gotta pay more attention to my levels.
    I think that gater-type effect was in the song but I could've just been playin around with the instant gratification mapping.
    Im also thinking some quicker mixes would keep the energy up.

    I liked the tracks, but the change is styles is too much for my taste. Also, I can't be very constructive, as I am a noob myself. But I can explain what I feel are "glitches". This is all my personal taste and ear too.

    The mix between "Turbulance" and "My feelings for you" was good.
    Between 6:00 and 6:25 the chopped mix of the vocals seems off beat.
    Between 7:00 and 8:00 the beats seem to be also off. Were you using an S4 and the loop buttons as one shots? Same at about 9:30. Everything between 6 and 10 got me nervous.
    At 11:17 something went wrong. Volume drops and I would have looked at the DJ, if I were dancing. Was that use of a filter?
    The fade/ cross-over to "Born this way" was, well, could have been better.
    Mix between "Born this way" and "Rock the Disco" was good, but the music styles clash IMHO. Fairly melodic Lady Gaga then Monotonous "Rock the disco, Rock the disco, Rock the disco...
    After that it gets better. I couldn't find anything that would bother me on the dance floor other than some volume issues and the style changing too often. Overall, I liked what you've done and only needs some small tweaking to be really good.

    I hope I can do the same and get some good critique, when I start to get better with mixing. Right now the only thing anyone might say is OMFG! What Crap! LOL! So take my critique with a grain of salt.
