According to TWHL, a proper review must be conducted in the following fashion:

-Point-out every flaws before anything else.
-Give very little credit to what's nice.
-Review the surface only. Absolutely don't try to dig for more.
-Cede to popular views.
-See brought-back classics as outdated.
-Grive credit exclusively to what have been done countless number of time.
-Translate any protest into misplaced ego.
-Make sure reminding the reviewee's work has absolutely nothing special by private message prior just looking superfially at it.
-Deny objectively outstanding features.

Asking people for opinion here is suicide.

You didn't ask for just an opinion. You asked for heavy criticism, lol.

+1 That's true, but that was clear sarcasm highlighting the excessive harshess of this site reviews.

Originaly, I posted pictures of my project and received only super a-hole comments, like I didn't have right to start somewhere. Like only pointing on the bad stuff, not pointing on anything positive whatso F ever.
You might come off as bitter.
I most definitely am.

Vocals definitely need to be more prominent and significantly louder than other instruments as it currently is. Is that your voice, that's a surprisingly good vibrato! Electrosynth vibe is pretty good but arguably a bit overdone in the current climate.

Currently I feel like it's just tweaking the other instruments to make them fit into the mix better, kick drum and bass need to have a stronger low frequency presence; sound a bit flat so would do some slight chorus on the >500Hz region and make them quite wide stereo wise (obvs keep anything lower than this mono).
Synths need to be wider and maybe slightly less on the higher frequencies; Adding a slight sidechain compressor / pump into your bassline can make some room for the kick to be pronounced. Vocals dont appear to have any mid to low end, really do a lot of processing on these - compressing different parts of the bandwith, really compress it ( but not too much unless you want to sound like kanye ). Delay could do with a bit more HF decay to take some of the harsher higher frequencies out. Do less master compression on the whole track, rather on each individual instrument.

Really good though, albeit weird as fuck.

Thanks, Instant. Surprised to see someone here who knows this much about mixing!

I'm still fairly new to mixing, so I'll try out these techniques you've suggested. I mostly don't play around with anything other than sidechain/EQ/soundgoodizer.

And lemme tell you, getting a ring worm on your hard drive is a real pain in the ass.
