not really, the mix, strictly speaking, is too much a part of a recording's identity to really want it different. muddy or gaudy mastering can get in the way tho.

It's hard to make a good song sound bad.

Mixing should be able to ruin an album for you. You're not listening properly if it can't.

Yeah I can't listen to any non-jazz music from before 1990 or so for this reason. It just ruins it for me.

I to didn't like it at first but the closer I listened I have to say it's quite unique, very interesting and complex scale usage, something a bit different from what you'd usually hear. The linked video is a perfect example.

Not reading messages before me, could care less.

A bad mix can sometimes be on purpose, you've got your hipstery folks who like to intentionally add a lo-fi grainy sound to their music. I'm not huge on it but if the album is good then I can deal with the shit mix.

I mostly agree with this. There's certain albums I enjoy with what alot of people consider to be bad mixes but the sound was part of the artist's vision which makes it all the more special to me ie. Heretic.

It's called being poor



It can hurt my overall view of the album's quality, but if the album is really good then I can overlook it. AJFA is one of my favorite metal albums.

I honestly don't mind their debut's tone. That said, "Weightless" has a much better tone.

I really hate when bass is inaudible. If all I can make out of it is low end then it sucks. Bass needs definition and pick attack.

Chevelle's album Point #1 is a great album but mixed terribly. Which is disappointing because Steve Albini produced it

There's a reason for the Tesseract kick sounding awful on the album. That's the Superior Drummer Avatar kick drum. Really not a very good sounding kick.

Rise Of The Tyrant by Arch Enemy.
Granted, it's not even close to their best album anyway, but it's still a solid melodeath record.
However, something about that album just seemed "off" to me. The mixing and production, especially the guitar sound, just bothers me for some reason. It's just not as clear, heavy, and defined as their other albums.

I loved BTBAM's first album and I think it was recorded on a stage or something so no. If the music is good, I'm likely to like it.

All of I wrote haikus about cannibalism in your yearbook's songs would've had potential if they weren't recorded in the worst way imaginable. I also hate the mixing on the old Descendents albums, and I don't like anything after Everything sucks. Well, that's actually their only album I like.
