Sorry for 3 posts in an hour! I just had this thought: how much instrumental and/or vocal activity is going on?? Is it hard to follow because the melody is getting buried by guitars and/or keys and/or horns and/or strings and/or vocal harmony? Or are the songs just too complicated and/or not catchy enough? Rule #1 - musicians hate space and will overplay every change they get. good singers hate bland and will harmonize everything they can.
