    Maybe I'm weird. But for me this mix isn't great. I don't like this kick is too flat for me. I completetly didn't feel low frequencies.
    My sub is bored while this song played.
    Kick is little too high. There is no pleasant punch on sub.
    For example this song like many others have better mix for me. There is very pleasant bass and kick punch on sub.
    Maybe because my setup or something but I prefer different mixing.

    Even though music is purely subjective, I agree with everything @Roject said. I will also add that to my ears this mix sounds too 2 dimensional. It sounds like one of those mixes in which whoever was mixing was relying on visual cues rather than ears. In sum, those ladies are not teaching ME anything. Indeed, I have reported this cover to Billy Idol with a rebel yell.

    The Marsheaux ladies, hmmm... The producer/writer behind the duo, Nikos Bitzenis, is married to the main singer (the pretty one lol) many years now and was the composer/producer/partly lyrics writer and singer behind the successful-now defunkt- electronic Greek band called Mikro. He also happens to be a friend of mine for 30+ years and one thing's certain, he knows electronica very well and how to mix sht.
    With that said, i never cared much about Nikos's project named Marsheaux, although OMD founder & singer-songwriter Andy McCluskey seems to like 'em a lot. For me Marsheaux has always been more of an "aesthetics presentation" rather than inspired and never challenged any olive branch for innovation. Something like Visage or late Human League, decidedly 80's electro-pop esque, minus the depth or dimension some of those acts had if you like.
    Nikos's weakest point has always been he wraps up sht too fast. And while this can be an advantage (when working in a commercial studio for instance), when it comes to releasing music, sometimes you need to add that special flavour/sauce, which he never does imho. Tracks rarely if ever get a second thought. Reason why @Roject and @The Pirate agreed on mixing flaws, but these are subtle really and a matter of preference. Even being two dimensional, to him might be a plus hehe, as he makes these more or less for radio consumption.
    Cheers :)

    this track reminds me of haircuts for men, im sure this dude had been listening to some boards of canada


    Eyes Without a Face from Marsheaux is a very good cover with its own character while at the same time never loses track of Billy Idol's prime emotional blueprints. i agree about lack of depth in specific domains but again i believe this track stands out

    one more thing bout Marsheaux. a few years back i stumbled uppon a torrent, a folder with all the Popcorn-Song remix-remakes, around 30 tracks, VA. there was a remake from Marscheaux and its the one i like the most. Popcorn Song turns 50 next year

    I liked it. I try not to dissect other people's mixes. I do that to myself enough, so I just listen with my "average punter" ears on.

    As I said, it is subjective. What may sound good to you, may sound mediocre to me. Therefore, when you mix you know you are not going to please everyone.

    True.

    I am a bitch, too. I am the bitch all freaks and perverts from AS ask for sexy photos and videos via pm. Always asking for my crack. I know nothing about mixing or music. My shit is porn.
