  3. Chris Walla is amazing. He did the tegan and sara record "the con" . they made a sweet making of movie of that record and it's super interesting. I love how versatile yet cohesive that record sounds! He also did the follow up record which also sounds superb!

  5. It would be convenient to clarify some concepts before start, but let's get it simple: I'll understand production as the sum of the artistic production itself + EQ-mixing + mastering. Just to not get too muddier here. In no particular order and not caring about genres/eras: - Pet Sounds, by The Beach Boys. Produced by Brian Wilson. I think he even got better when produced the single Good Vibrations. He was a total master in terms of dynamics. Thinking about it, and about what he was able to achieve (also other producers and bands of those years, of course), and just when recording techniques and studios were technologically light years away from what we have now... it just blows my mind. - For Emma, Forever Ago, by Bon Iver. Produced by Justin Vernon. Basically recorded in an isolated house at the mountains. Initially conceived as demos, those recordings ended up being the final album, except for some little arrangements ere and there, which were lately added on the studio. Noting else was altered or changed. Not even re-recorded. - In Utero, by Nirvana. Produced by Steve Albini. In its recent 20th anniversary re-release, I loved to hear the Albini's mixes for Heart Shaped Box and All Apologies, which were re-mixed by Scott Litt for its original release. About this record and its production I like how the band turned off their backs to Nevermind's sound, just to offer a rawer/thrasher/punker? version of themselves, but keeping a warm core and sound. - A Night At The Opera, y Queen. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker and Queen. The album itself was a total landmark. And although the production, itself, was nothing new (it was heavily influenced by the production of albums like IV by Led Zeppelin), they, somehow, were able to twist that a little bit more. Multi layered vocals and instruments, mixed in a way that sounds pretty natural and wide. The sound on that album, today, still sounds fresh and real. About more modern records, although this is an unpopular opinion for the old-school fans of blink, I think Enema Of The State was nearly achieving the perfect spot for blink IMO, but finally it got fully engaged on the volume war, so that's the reason why I'd preffer Dude Ranch's production over it, probably. Is not like Dude Ranch is not over peaked, but due to its more simpler approach and 'darker' sound, it's less evident. so the album breathes a little bit more. Also, I like too Motion City Soundtrack's Commit This To Memory. Still amazes me how Mark was able to do that and the PAWS record and now, well. I agree about Clarity too. Sweet songwriting there, strong album and really good approach on production. Also, I really like Green Day's Dookie/Insomniac production. I think on Dookie they achieved their best sound. Overall this is my take on this subject. There are other aproductions I like, of course, but thinking about them, and others which are, at least, as well produced as those. The same applies for modern ones. Understanding how moder stadards apply now, and how some artists avoid that, there are some good productions out there. In this regard, and in my opinion, the battle now is not that much on the 'artistic' side, which is important, of course, but on the 'volume' war side of the story. Because you can have a record which has been produced artistically to your taste, or being really interesting and good, but being also ruined by an outrageous mixing and mastering.

  8. Inteteresting Travis liked it despite not following Tom. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the blink camp to know how much this stuff gets discussed when Tom does this shit ha.

  9. They sounded better Night 2! Skiba was having a blast. They swapped Adam’s Song with STFTK, and Reckless Abandon with Don’t Leave Me. They skipped Man Overboard last night, not sure why. STFTK had a nice outro, they were jamming. I think Obvious will be really cool once he gets in down a bit better, his tone and the vibe when they start it up is really cool.

  16. When it comes to blink, I'd choose smiley face & Enema. Boxcar Racer, +44 and the first AVA album are great when it comes to production too. Big fan of the production from December Underground by AFI. Chuck by Sum 41 isn't the most polished sounding album but I love how raw it sounds. Kinda like the production from Bad Religion's "The Dissent of Man". Always been a big fan of the production of Sex Pistols album too. Sounds more like a 90's album than a 70's album in my opinion. Strange for a punk rock band of the 70's to have a very good quality sounding album. A Beautiful Lie & This is War from 30 Seconds to Mars sound really good too IMO.

  19. So true Oli. Mark is way too afraid to try anything. Feldy replacing Matt actually would be good. The guy would have so mucch energy on stage which would probably help Mark. Even Tom at his worst was always running around. It must be hard to get pumped with Matt just standing there and then reading off a teleprompter

  20. I do not like talking about my engineering experience because i dont want to sound like a know it all. But i cant help myself with that comment. i’ve been studying engineering for more than 15 years, have a degree in it, worked in professional studios where famous artists have recorded, i’ve mixed and recorded songs, albums, pre and post tv stuff and concerts. So of course i have a strong opinion about how songs are recorded and sound with my favorite band. And there are obvious proofs on how untitled was better recorded, engineered and mixed. But yeah, you know everything about everyone. This will be the last time responding to these “elite members” type of comments. You’re more than welcome joining conversations about blink without belittling people.
