Good song, horrible recording


#1

Radiohead - Burn the Witch

Now you!


#2

Shoplifters of the world has a horrific recording, just sounds so muddy and damp.

Los Campesinos first album sounds like it was recorded into an iPhone 3 mic underwater


#3

Hey I didn’t realize this was a joke thread


#4

Breeders - Divine Hammer (Last Splash version)

Sounds really thin and weedy in the context of the rest of the album…bad production on that one song for some reason :man_shrugging:


#5

It’s fine.

The good stuff on Pablo Honey however…


#6

Guided by Voices - almost their entire discog
The Smashing Pumpkins - Thats The Way my Love Is


#7

Led Zeppelin - No Quarter

Sounds weak af, think i actually prefer the Tool version


#8

What? SotWU sounds great. Very 80s but great.


#9

The good songs from letting off the happiness


#10

almost all of Husker Du’s catalogue


#11

Noise on M83’s Dead Cities is always a bit jarring because the volume level feels completely different from the rest of the album. I started listening to that album on Grooveshark back in the day and always thought it was an issue with the file, but that wasn’t the case apparently.


#12

Metallica - blackened

Thats as far of that album i can get through because of the production


#13

I’ve always thought Tool’s Undertow album sounded kind of muffled and thin. I always have to turn it way up and it never quite sounds the way it feels it should.


#14

I should have called this thread “the live version is better”

Any goers on that instead?


#15

Yes, but you might have just accidentally turned this into another The Smashing Pumpkins thread.


#16

every good song from the 80s

most good songs from the 90s


#17

You need to listen to more records


#18

oh yeah Prince is definitely the exception actually


#19

The whole of the ‘Tender Prey’ album by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Arguably the best set of songs they wrote but a very muddy sound not helped by some ropey performances.


#20

Damn it sounds like I’m listening to it on a small speaker which is on the other end of a massive hall. It’s pretty grubby to my ears
