I see a big difference. Look at the bar on my shoulders. Then look at yours.

-song #1 made me want to cut myself for entertainment
-song #2 made my ears feel like they were being raped by aliens
-squat #1 looked more natural / strong
-based on the weird photo analysis above, I would say the music is having a negative impact on your mind

As far as I can see…
Jims traps/upper back are way more solid than yours…and that’s not a comment about your physique. Because of this, the bar is more on your neck than your traps. Looks similar…but that’s because its a safety bar. Jim’s holding the weight, you’re letting the weight push you down. The bar on your squat needs to slide back more on to your traps so you’re under the weight more
