When he said "redone fucking owns", I'm pretty sure he meant the producer, RedOne.
new max martin? hmmm
well that would make sense, giving as Luke learned everything he knows from Max.....
And I agree with Joey, best producer is Mutt Lange, or maybe Bob Ezrin.
The "best" album is a tough one. What do you gauge it on? For sheer sonic production, soundgarden's superunknown has to be up there, or the black album, or any of the Steve Lillywhite produced dave mathews band records.
In a previous thread back several months, I noted that three great metal albums came out in 1982 - Judas Priest "Screaming for Vengeance", Iron Maiden "Number of the Beast", and Accept "Restless and Wild". Considering how popular the first two were/are, I have no doubt in my mind that the cream of that crop was 'Restless and Wild"; it was easily better that the two other legendary albums - I wore that slab of vinyl out. Great album.
Hi dee hi do hi da, hi dee hi do hi da, hi dee. hi do, hi da ha ha ha ha ha ............... AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Classic!!!!!
Black album and Dark Side of the Moon. Both absolute perfection.
randall dunn's work has been blowing my mind lately
SunnO))) - Monoliths and Dimensions (just got the vinyl, sounds fucking INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!)
Secret Chiefs 3 Live at the Great American Music Hall DVD
Last Kayo Dot CD and the next one
Painkiller - Execution Ground is pretty fucking amazing sounding. Best production Painkiller ever had. I'd be inclined to say it was Bill Laswell that recorded and mixed it but I dunno, doesn't feel like it has his signature sound, but it's gorgeous either way.
Gorguts - From Wisdom To Hate and Obscura both sound amazing.
Cryptopsy - Once Was Not
Converge - Jane Doe
Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery sounds noooooyce
Dave Otero did a fucking GODLY on the last 2 Cephalic Carnage albums too. Muchos respect for the Xenosapien snare sound. Anomalies has an incredible bass tone as well, one of my favourite ever
Production-wise any song off the latest nickelback album is just outstanding. I can't get over how good that record sounds. Performances are great, it's mixed so efficiently, and it's super loud yet sounds super clean and still feels dynamic... the vocals are so loud but at the same time never feel that way. it's amazing. if you want to learn how to mix a song for radio, buy this album and listen to it 100 times
Tool - Eulogy and/or Third Eye.
Basically the AEnema album is an absolute masterpiece, songwriting wise, as well as production wise. Probably the best sounding album I've ever heard.
- Kayo Dot - Choirs of the Eye
- Neurosis - A Sun That Never Sets
- Ulver - Perdition City (it's flawless and transcendent. so much ear candy too)
- Majority Rule - Interviews With David Frost (very natural gritty production, yet very balanced, not unlike Converge's production)
- Au Revoir Simone - Still Night, Still Light
- Converge - Jane Doe
- The Deer Tracks - Aurora (so much ear candy as well, great balance of organic and electronic)
- Torche - Meanderthal (love how every individual instrument sounds)
- Lampshade - Let's Away
Brand New Eyes definitely has to be one of the most impressive things I've heard.
It's hard to pick an individual song, they just all have pretty much top notch production.
CLA is quite the pimp, but i'd have to go with andy wallace as the most awesome mix engineer, like...ever
aenima is an amazing album...probably my fav. of all time, by any artist
BUT...i would say the production on lateralus is even better - it's just pure, 100% sonic perfection
I honestly never liked the guitar tone on Lateralus, too nasally IMO; the drums sound pretty damn good, but the kick is a bit thin; overall the mix is cool and organic, and has great air, but I've never thought it was all that fantastic cuz those elements always kinda stuck out to me as things I wasn't that crazy about
Actually, yeah, besides the kick, the rest of the drums (and overheads) are really fantastic (I just don't like the apparent 2k boost on the kick, that's such a fatiguing frequency overall to me, so I'm kinda sensitive to it)
yea i'd agree the guitar tone is a little funky, but i guess that would be a matter of preference - it's not like it sounds the way it does due to some limitation in the production, i think that's what adam jones just wants to sound like!
Sad But True
what's with the tranny fascination around here?
Anything from CLA (Story of the Year, Greenday, Paramore), ANDY WALLACE (sevendust, Linkin Park) OR FORRESTER SAVELL (Karnivol), don't really like all the bands listed, but mixes are perfect. Forrester Savell is one of our big guns over here in AUS!!!!
Dude, do you have a link to the final mixes of those two songs I did reamping for?
I love everything about that album ASIDE from the snare sound. I loved the snare on Riot!
It is so artificial It sticks out of the mix like a sore thumb. All they had to do was pick a sample with a bit more low mids and less high, lower it a dB, and that album would be sonically perfect.
Andy Wallace would get my vote as the best ever too.
Not metal, but Grace by Jeff Buckley is still one of the most incredible sounding records in the rock world thanks to Andy Wallace's ears
