Sometimes I think this track is perfect sometimes it's a noisy mess. Nothing makes sense anymore.

Kyuss - Blues for the red sun. If there's something as too much bass, this is an exemple.

Re: Amazing songs with questionable mixing.

A lot of the music by The Prodigy done in recent years suffers from way too much distortion and compression and is just harsh on the ears. Their mix quality has gone down a lot in recent years.

But musically, the tunes still have some appeal.

I'm referring to tunes like "Nasty"

Not sure if this is great, but it's one of the songs that got me into electronic music in the first place and one of the first things I went out and got on vinyl. Going back to it now, it feels flat and a little weak for as loud as it is.

Re: Amazing songs with questionable mixing.

Even KraftWerk's legendary "Computer World" has hardly any bass in it at all. It's very top endy.

Re: Amazing songs with questionable mixing.

can it be intentional? i dunno, i can never figure it out simply because i like him so much i just assume its all apart of the color and design. i mean, up until maybe Foley Room or Supermodified, it gets cleaner, before then its all noisey and chaotic. i always attributed it to the art form, shrug, what you think? heres Amon Tobin before Amon Tobin as cujo;

Yeah, i've always wondered if this was intentional or an accident, or if they intentionally wanted grit and ended up with dirt and mud, but it's a good example. I think it's a great tune (imo) but is mixed poorly (imo). The flat weak stuff comes from when all the sounds are present, in what's supposed to be the crescendo/finale, and they're not sitting well together.

Re: Amazing songs with questionable mixing.

A lot of Fat Possum recordings of blues from Asie Payton et al
Some sounds like they took one (!) mic lying on a chair a few yards away from the band playing in a hut. Sounds like shit.

Metallica - Kill 'em all. terrible, terrible, terrible sound

many thrash metal albums... didn't matter much, as it was supposed to be listened to cranked up way beyond any linear distortion free limit on whatever amp was on hand in a state close to a drunken stupor

------------------
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Re: Amazing songs with questionable mixing.

KMFDM has some really great tunes and the mixing really wasn't bad, but they don't compress to MP3 very well at all. There's just so much high frequency content and distorted fuzz metal guitars that it really reveals the weaknesses of MP3 as a format. The CD's of course don't have this problem.

that even messier then my stuff

I don't remember that track as so messy, can it be the upload? someone put it through some weird shit before uploading? Maybe I just saw it on tv and didn't think about it due to shitty TV speakes.
