I guess igorpan thinks that the vocal itself should come up, and I would concur. It might be necessary to dial the reverb down a little at that point, and it might keep your client happy if you take jerome_oneil's advice:

I don't think that's at all true here, but it is a good rule of thumb (well, for noobs, anyway), and your client does seem to hate reverb....

I'd usually advocate leaving it completely dry for one mix just so that the client can see the error of his ways, but I think that would be a huge gamble here. The bugger might actually like it.
