    The fucking sound quality...It´s utter shit!!! Productionwise nearly everything sucks on the album.Guitars sound like overdriven electroacoustics, the drum sound is disturbing, the bass isn´t very fancy either...Beware of the mixerman...

    Very odd. I think the production is second best of them all (Empiricism sounds awesome)...

    I don't think I've ever had a complaint about a Woodhouse job...

    I dont actually own it (I will soon) but out of the handful of tracks I have the production is very good. the only thing that bothers me is how on a couple of songs (I only have like 4) like "Grimland Domain" Garms clean vocals sound very sarcastic like hes just being goofy on purpose.

    Hmm.. this does not really count for Borknagar. But a lot of bands who record there get the similar kind of sound, a sound that lacks a punch... It's okay, but there is something missing... I think that's why Borknagar went to the Abyss studios for Q, after the s/t album it's the most 'agressive' album, with a thick, somewhat messy sound...

    I think it's great! :confused:

    It has a more organic sound, and it fits the whole damn shit perfectly!

    It took me a few listens to get used to, and I think its great production. Thats one thing about Borknagar that has always existed, you can't really hear everything thats going on solely but everything works together as an ensemble seamlessly.

    I didn't think much of "Olden Domains" production either. I don't have any complaints about it, but I think it could have been better. "Empiricism" has the best production in my opinion. I love how every instrument comes in just as clear as the other. Its perfect.

    IMO The Olden Domain's production is the best of Borknagar CDs. Especially Empiricism sounds poor.

    It's a matter of taste. For me, "Empiricism" is too thin. The advantage: you can clearly hear each instrument. That's very good. But I'm rather a fan of broad productions. I'm not saying "Quintessence" is better because on there the sound is too sludgy, if you know what I mean. Too undefined. "Archaic Course" is quite nice, I think.

    Empicism thin??? Mayby on some level...the drums are too much on the back ground...However the playing is much more concentrated compared to any other album by them...

    I like the sound, IMO Woodhouse Studios have done a good job, I couldn't say that they ever done a bad job...

    That thin yet over-produced sound? There's just about everything wrong in it.
