Is this just a bad vocal preformace or is it just mixed poorly
Like it sound good when i solo it and the pitch is great but the timing seems a little off
like it got moved ahead a few miliseconds

should i just consider rerecording the vocals?

I'll give you a few comments here while I'm at it....

First... this has SO much potential, but is left somewhat unrealized by a lack of a really strong chorus. I keep listening to the track waiting for it to explode into a bright, shining, joyful noise.... and ultimately feel let down because it never happens. I like the vibe and the arrangement. The production is there, and the vocal is decent. Just.... no.... *bang!!*

For a good example of something similar to what you're doing who really knows how to nail a chorus, check out this band here: Love You To Death

As far as the vocal goes.... as I say, it sounds decent, but there is some funkiness in the timing as you had asked about. Here is my take: It is often faster and less hassle to retrack a part than it is to spend hours mucking about editing. Depending on the software you're using, you should be able to do another take or two, and then comp them together, with your worst case scenario being having to keep a phrase or two or three from the existing one. Not so bad, really, and won't take a long time.

That said... it sounds like the song is too low for you. Your pitch is mostly fine, but really shows off weaknesses on those low notes. Can you transpose the song up? Even a tone or so would make a big difference.

it sounds fine in terms of timing with the music. the music is catchy and i like it.
the vocals have no energy at all whatsoever though, most singers that record at my pad i always have to make them redo the tracks until they get that energy going and across in the music.
it doesn't really pick up either like the other dude said.
if you can manage to project more and stuff you would sound like heartstop basically

No, not pitch-shifting it. Re-tracking the instruments to key of E... or F?
