Nope, it's not just you.
What this needs, is for someone to lay the ground work so that others can build upon it.
I would be totally willing to mix and lead this project. I can play any of the instruments, but don't need to. I'd be happy to just mix if necessary.
1. the song
2. a bed track for the others to build on.
With regard to the song, I lean to the older stuff myself, pre Rabin. That's just me though. Anything between Fragile all the way to Drama would suffice.
