Some questions: tonal balance in your analysis doesn't include bass (I get this by simple analysis of your sentence structure - if this is incorrect, let me know). If tonal balance doesn't include consideration of 'bass' what does it include?
Following on from that, it seems to be your opinion that transparency has a particular meaning in a particular circumstance (once tonal balance and bass are "correct"). Without really wanting to quibble about that definition, can you tell me what the definition of transparency would be in different circumstances?
It may seem that I am being picky, but the language we use HAS to have a commonality of meaning before any intelligent comment and discussion can begin - one of my points in my earlier post.
