What is your opinion on this?

Is it Adam D?
Phil Spector?
Timbaland?
Rick Rubin?
Post who you think is the best.

For me it is probably Rob Cavallo who worked with Green Day & My Chemical Romance.

My favorite ones are Brian Eno, Mick Jones, Björn Olsson amongst others.

Machine is very good. Not my favourite, in terms of sound, but he is very very good at what he does. Also Adam D.

Way too many greats to pick a "best". George Martin definitely needs to be up there. He revolutionized the way music is made and he was a huge part of the Beatles. Jimmy Page was great on early Zeppelin albums, especially on Houses of the Holy. I agree with CoreysMonster about Townshend. Rick Rubin is up there as well. I really enjoy Frusciante's solo work, and he did an incredible job on The Empyrean.

George Martin definitely deserves to be up there. First guy to ever Mic up a kick drum separately to the rest of the kit.

My personal favourites are Rich Costey, James Ford, David Bowie & Mick Ronson, Rick Rubin, Brian Eno...
I'm sure there are others I should credit, but those are the ones off the top of my head.

George Martin - the fifth Beatle

I also like Stephen Street - The Smiths, Blur, Babyshambles etc.

Oh, and Brian Eno of course, purely for Bowie's Berlin trilogy.


EDIT: Recently, James Ford has been getting some good results; Arctic Monkeys, Florence, Last Shadow Puppets etc.

George Martin is probably the most important rock producer, but my personal favorites are Devin Townsend and Steven Wilson. Townsend can make a huge wall of sound seem totally clear and full of little subtleties, and I love the way he uses samples and ambience. Wilson's production is very organic and a refreshing change of pace from all the really loud, dense production styles from a lot of other artists in similar genres.

The only producer I know is Brian Epstein

Who was actually a manager, not a producer.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Mick Jones produced Babyshambles as far as I know. At least Down In Albion.
I prefer the mixing on Down On Albion tbh.

Music is too diverse to have a single best producer.


You can still have a favorite.

Rick Rubin, hands down.

why?

i'm ok with the guy when he produces hip-hop, but any of the more rock oriented albums by him that i've heard sound pretty lifeless.
#25
I don't think there is a greatest. But im going to say Danger Mouse, because he is my favorite producer that is still culturally relevant.
#29
I personally like.

Justin Broadrick - The sound he gets is massive. beyond words big.

Nick Sansano - Public Enemy AND Sonic Youth? Why not.

George Martin, he defined modern producing in an analog time.

Much agreed, the most successful producer ever and saw the talent in a relatively small band called The Beatles when everyone else turned them away

Among my favorites are:

Rob Cavallo
Brendan O'Brien
Rick Rubin
Butch Vig
George Young
