I know I'll get flamed for this but I really don't like the overall production on the album. But that's due to the fact that I've never been a big fan of Brendan O'Brien. Apart from three of the four Springsteen albums he's done, there's only one other album he's ever produced that I liked the result of and that was Mastodon's Crack The Skye.

Otherwise his penchant for making everything sound huge as possible often ends up being overkill. See: Working on a Dream.

I mean the album is good, no question. It just sounds too slick for my liking in some parts.

Had to delete Sliver. Nirvana stinks and the cover did too.

Does saying that make it not true?

Nirvana is not pleasant to listen to. Good try though. Or do you guys say "doe" now?

No, that opinion is just highly laughable. That's all.

Why?

Explain to me why Nirvana is a great band and/or why I have to think so. I'll wait.

Can you explain why they "stink" when they're regarded as one of the most influential bands of our time?

His voice is grating to me and I cannot relate to any of the songs and I feel like the songs have no heart to them unlike when I listen to a band like TGA.

We can agree to disagree. It's not like I deleted your copy of the song.

Ok lol. That's just a pretty ignorant opinion. Just saying.

Still not as funny as little kids who thought Sliver was an original.

People though Brand new's cover of NIN's wish was an original. People are dumb.

I actually really don't like O'Brien's production on those Springsteen albums. It still works out fine on The Rising and Magic, but I believe someone on this site once put it best when they said that "he makes the E-Street band sound shrinkwrapped." I actually really dig the production here though, so I don't know.
