I think the mixing/production choice really bothers me in a few places ... I don't even think it's really Joe's fault as much as it that it doesn't work as well.
I dunno. Something about it just doesn't quite click.
This was the same producer that did Gaslight's last album, isn't it? I don't understand how that album can sound so wonderful and this one so poor - I'm not even talking musically, I'm just talking about production.
