I actually read that shoulders in front of the bar isn't bad and that some of the strongest powerlifters pull that way. No idea if it actually is good or bad though, aside from that the pull was a lot easier and felt better than when I would sit far back and start with the hips lower. Was a lot easier to maintain a stable core.
edit: just re-watched my lift and compared to some respectable guy's and I should probably lower my hips a bit as you say.
with all of that being said, your shoulders are really not all that far in front of the bar so this post is probably pretty overblown.

Change your starting position or keep your hips down and drive with your legs. Hips are flying up before the bar starts to move. Unless you're doing that on purpose for some reason.
