    Inside The Torn Apart is a phenominal sounding record. one of my favs. I wish they' go back to Andy, the snare on their last 2 discs is horrid.

    Yeah, these are my two personal favs as well, along with Diatribes. What is it with, Andy? I actually dug the songwriting in that period. Blast beats just get old to me pretty quick.

    they could have sampled it maybe?
    i mean the music doesnt particularly have any ghost notes or anything fancy on the snare. it would have sounded better if they had sampled it

    Holy shit. I bought Inside the day that it was released in the U.S., and until right now I always thought that C.R. mixed it. Easily one of the most crushing productions, EVER. It sounds great. Diatribes and this one are my favs from ND by far.

    I believe Andy only engineered on those, Colin mixed.

    Inside The Torn Apart says, "Mix Engineer - Andy Sneap".

    Yeah, but what does that mean actually? Isn't the mix engineer the guy who operates PT while the producer (Colin) gives instruction? I don't know... Cause on the discography part of Andy's web site it clearly states E for Engineer, and not M for Mix... We'll have to wait for Andy to clarify it himself (unless Colin passes by).

    I always hated that "mix engineer" term, because it kinda leaves the question of who did what. It's more common in the rap world to hear/see that, Eminem is a great example. His records say "Mixed by Eminem", and "Mix Engineer So and So". But everyone knows that Eminem doesn't know jack shit about mixing - especially operating a SSL. I don't even see how it's even possible for someone to instruct another guy on how to mix.

    I'm thinking that this record was done on 2", too...?

    p.s. Just for the record, I don't own any Eminem cd's.

    I haven't listened to Inside The Torn Apart in ages.

    Damn those guitars are so juicy I nearly creamed my pants.

    Rectos? Also doesn't sound like V30's.

    For me a unique record. Mega sound fresh air, a wonderful mix. Something amazing. One of the most important references for me.

    Inside The Torn Apart clearly sounds like à Colin mix to my ears. Soundwise it's the logical sequel to Diatribes.
