Yeah, but records he has done since that have also sounded like shit. The halloween song this band put out for example.
i mean, the bands might like that sound, though. if you want a particular sort of production, he's one of the guys you go to. a lot of people might not like it, a lot of other people really do. if the guy gets another record to sound even better, why not take that shot of working with someone you know and getting a somewhat better sound?
