    I listened to your mix while working out and watching NASCAR's Pure Michigan 400. Really! Here's my feedback.

    - Thanks for the tracklisting! And good info in post title/message body! I like download links too, but this helps!

    - Intro track seems appropriate, you are throwing down the gauntlet and declaring this will be a progressive mix. Second track is a nice intro, brings the energy to around a 7 or so.

    - Slight volume bobble on the mix into the third track (~3:45?) but nice transition/mix imo.

    - 7:15 and so far this mix is pretty kickin. Some more volume issues around here with your overall track levels.

    - 9:30 and I'm glad to hear the (florence) vocal. Was getting a bit blippity bloopity for me. I'm also getting a bit overwhelmed by the numbers of breakdowns and builds, but I understand that's part of the genre of music you play.

    - The mix out of that florence track (~13:00) was a little rough for me. Harmonically? In terms of EQ? Something.

    - At about 20:00, I'm reminded why I really don't prefer progressive house by a weirdly emo euro vocal. But you have settled into a nice prog house groove and I can't complain too much. I like the phrasing of the mix right around here.

    - 21:30, another breakdown and build. progressive house, I remind myself, and don't blame you.

    - Jimmie Johnson, ol' Five Time, seems to be running away with this race.

    - Nice, a little bit of a groove without an immediate breakdown or build. 28 minutes, a vocal. alright.

    - There seem to be relatively serious changes in volume throughout your mix, especially when you are in the mix. I appreciate the attention to detail in terms of subtle fading, but it seems like you might be EQing and/or changing the levels a little "too much".

    - ~36:00 I feel like the phrasing is off by a measure, you mix in a measure too soon.

    - NASCAR SPOILERS : Damn, Kyle Busch pulls it out after a G-W-C finish.

    - I eventually finish my workout and turn off your mix around an hour. All progressived-out.

    Thanks for posting and keep at it!

    Brotha, I just want to say that you rock, and I really appreciate you stepping out of your musical norm to listen to my mix.

    As far as that transition from the "florence track" into the next: I could never quite figure out what was odd about it, but I'm glad that you pointed it out. I think that it could be a minor/major chord thing (?).

    Anyways, I really appreciate your response, and your feedback with detail!
