Wait for the Moment
I like the feel of Kat's track too! I like both of these tracks, vocals definitely fit this source.

Chalis - This is pretty mellow, but I THINK the mood is retained well enough. Nice use of dynamics and velocity work. This is tough, I'd be in a bad spot too were I to compete. Can't really compete against someone with kick ass E-guitars, a vocalist and better sound set up. So I feel for ya bro lol. Regardless, I think this isn't too shabby and daresay you're improving chalis.
Kat - Nice work Kat and Matt Greco. Another great addition to MnP. I'd say I enjoyed DusK's 'Wait for a Moment' a bit more, but 'Retrospect' is a pretty kick ass remix too. Good jorb!

DusK - Great vocals. It's a great combination together with the metal/rock style you used. I like the way you switch between the harder and more calm parts, it's a nice mix. The guitar after 3 mins was amazing.
Kat - Another 5+ min piece, even 6+ :). The vocals are nice, they work good in this song; I don't think they are too loud (at least not in an annoying way). I like the combination with the piano and drums in the background. Also liked the 'silence' at 4:48 and the ending.

I feel like Wait for the Moment was almost too much of a change, but stayed just close enough to win a first place vote. I think the vocals played a big part in that - going with clean vocals and maintaining a high octave helped keep the original mood, even with the heavier guitars chugging away.
Great work on both mixes, though!
