This. The songs and their ideas are great, but the mixing sucks
Wastelands should be released tonight on iTunes according to this guy.
Ah yes, the same guy who got information about the iTunes release of Until It's Gone wrong by almost a week. Forgive me if I'm holding my breath on this one .
The intro of UIG has a lot of clipping, it's not even funny.
Strange because I don't find Until It's Gone to be "muddy" at all. I can easily identify several layers on in the song. Even with the Wastelands bridge, while maybe a little less clear, I can still differentiate most things that are happening. Perhaps it's not so much the mixing but rather the tape recording? Although I do agree that Guilty All The Same has the best mix by far. So far everything seems better at least than the LOUD GUITARZ that drown out everything in In My Remains and I'll Be Gone.
Does anybody know at what time does itunes upload their releases?
There are many things I don't enjoy about Linkin Park, choruses aren't one of them.
I'd say they're actually one of their biggest strenghts.
There are so many faults in the UNTIL IT'S GONE studio version, it's hilarious. Bad, yet still hilarious.
Live version is the better song.
It's the mix/master.
I brought this up ages ago, when LP were saying they were doing that this time around and people were getting excited about it. Recording to tape doesn't automatically mean you will have a great sounding record, just like recording digitally doesn't automatically mean you'll have a bad sounding record. For both mediums you need recording, mixing, & mastering engineers who know what the fuck they are doing, a band that knows what sound they want, and a label that doesn't mandate a LOUD record.
You see so many bands these days saying "we're recording our next album to tape!!". It doesn't mean anything if you don't know how to use it.
Yeah, the mixing on Wastelands makes the bridge sound like a...well, Wasteland.
The guitar up-sliding sound is clearly supposed to be the big "thing," but it's so quiet that the entire thing just sounds like some big muddy wall of noise. So it just ends up feeling like an entire section of the song that has nothing going on.
This is a very simple structured song. I quite like it. But I don't really quite understand what the lyrics are about.
If the mixing is so shitty, according to some here, then why do you think the band let's it go on? Maybe they should have mixed it themselves, or maybe they wanted it this way?
In my opinion, Mike and all the instruments are great, but chester sucks... he sounds so weak, there is no power in the chours, this is sad because we`ve got the same problem is in GATS and UIG... He should try to double his voice again like he did in Meteora (or did he trippled it)?
Well im hoping there will be more energy in his voice on the other songs!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liPJhCKq70Y check out the chourse here... where is this energy gone?
Chester doesn't suck. You're just so used to his layered overproduced studio voice.
You want real Chester or fake Chester?
Yet he's been right about every other release he tweets about.
All i want is power in a chours... It worked fine in the first 3 LP`S.... i miss it, for me he sounds very weak... Its not overproduced if you sing the chours with two diffrent voices Overproduced is the Korn Untouchables LP but not LP with a double Voice in a Chours or do you thinks this sounds overproduced? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liPJhCKq70Y
I agree, the mixing so far has been disgustinly bad. And it's on purpose, that's the worse part, it's not because Andy Wallace fucked shit up, because he mixed Meteora and Hybrid Theory and those albums are perfect, it's because the band told him to give it a "punk rock underground 80's feel", I'm sure of that.
I wouldn't be so sure. I'd say the underground/punk/lo-fi feel comes mostly from how the music is recorded, which is what the band tried to capture with recording straight to tape. Mixing and mastering should be their own process.
Lmao this guy again I wonder what the reaction was when he got it wrong with UIG
If he's right about Wastelands tonight then good for him. I'm just saying whomever he got his info from for UIG was way...WAY off base.
Of course, people will write that off as one mistake due to his past record. So you know what? So will I. I'll forget the past mistake, and assume Wastelands is going on iTunes tonight. Hopefully he's right.
If he's not, I think we desperately need to reconsider whether or not fans should keep using him as a source.
