For some reason there seemed to be a few minor timing synch issues in the second mix too - not sure if that's an auditory hallucination or not.
Great song with rock solid drumming either way, though.
I would say that this is a good evaluation. The first one is tighter and clearer. I find the words hard to understand on both though. Cool song.
