I recorded my bands record and we were all satisfied with the mix. We send it to get mastered and we get it back and the kick drum is too big. So I remix it and resend it and now I feel it gets buried in certain parts. I feel I've been analyzing these songs for so long that I lost the ability to enjoy them. I feel because I recorded it, I will never be satisfied. The rest of the band thinks it's great, I am not very happy. There comes a point where you can work on it for so long, and you just have to accept it for what it is. It's unfortunate, but I hope one day after taking a break from it, I will be able to enjoy it.

Anyway, just needed to get that off of my chest.

I understand how you feel. On my last project (http://www.visionsanddreams.net/audio.html) I recorded, mixed and mastered everything myself. On some of the songs I went kick by kick and adjusted levels for days...

Perfectionism can descend into "obsessive preoccupation".

I'm learning to trust others reactions and have a sense of "enough".
