this post even helped me some good insight illYou're welcome, it's why we're all here right..
but yeah, I'm not a fan of snare rolls, never use 'm myself cause they are played out as hell. But there are other ways to add energy without cluttering the track for a vocal. for instant the orchestra hits I was talking about, take away a big amount of frequencies (and headroom), so you could tame them (with an eq/compressor) but i would've chosen a more "realistic" orchestra hit as it fits the track more and will take less frequencies away from the vocalist (vocals are at 1-4.5khz depending how you mix them). But I also idn't hear a hihat (or It's mixed in too low) which is a great instrument to add or decrease energy to a track and if you mix it right it doesn't clutter.
Also you could experiment with volume automation by making the breakdown slightly louder than the rest. etc. just experiment with automation on all kinds of stuff.
Maybe a pad to glue it together, mix it in so that I't's hardly noticable but you can "feel" it, you can choose to only apply it at certain segments that need that extra bit of energy.
These are just a couple of tips but there's much, much more to discover, just listen to other musicians and analyse their tracks, what they do and how they make a track work.
