Just wanted to know if the sound quality is acceptable.

Particularly the bass. It's cut pretty heavily at the bottom, and maybe it's too high in the freqs, but I'm trying to avoid the headache-inducing bass that every rock song has. I do want it to have a similar sound to them, though.

Also, why does everything sound kind of empty? It's as though I'm listening to it with my EQ set to cut mids, but I didn't mix the instruments like that at all.

It does sound a little stiff and blocked off and/or missing something, but this isn't that bad. I was expecting worse. I'm not sure what you'd need to do to fix it without actually being able to work on it, but its not a bad start by any means.

Sounds sharp, resonant on the VHF. Smooth the high frequencies. Squash the guitar lead (compressor) that might help.
