This is my second mix, far better than rain must fall, I can see this one shooting up the charts come the end of the month.

Wow... the piano is NICE in the beginning! Not a bad mix at all!

I'm not familiar with the track (never really got into Freddie's solo stuff), so I can't comment on anything you may have done to the actual song part, which sounds fine, but could benefit from some proper drums, in my opinion.

If I may make a couple of constructive points, the first one being that you would get a much better end result by encoding the MP3 at 192Kbps or above (I usually do mine at 256Kbps). Admittedly, this increases the file size, but 128Kbps is significantly lossy, as the high frequencies (treble) are compromised, and sound 'wusshy'.

Secondly, the piano part in the beginning is nice, but the cross fade merge into the original song is a little abrupt and obvious (sorry!). There is almost a gap between the two parts. I would suggest starting the cross fade earlier, which may make it less noticable, but whatever you do, it won't be easy with two contrasting pieces of music. Certainly a nice idea though.

No offence, I'm not speaking as an 'expert', just as someone who's been where you are now, and spent many hours of frustration, and hair pulling out, practicing!

I hope your remix flies up the charts! :)

I'll cut to it as LordF has already pointed out the noticeable things:

That first crossfade from piano track to full track isn't quite working for me. The way I'd do it would be to stop the piano with a slight fade on the end and then add a delay or reverb to mask its abrupt stop. Then add in your next track, while mixing the two together to get the smoother effect.

Nice fades between instrumental and original track. Those were nice. Near the end, the level fluctuated very slightly. Not bad at all.

Peace,
Adam.

Just to reinforce what Adam said, the cross fades between the instrumental and original tracks were very good, as I didn't even realise they were there (not knowing the original well), so it's just that piano intro which needs a bit of work. :)
