My first candidate would probably be;

Muse - Black Holes and Revelations

Jesus, audio clipping seems to be constant on this record. :/ Pity, it's a good album too.
#2
Most commerically driven modern albums lack dynamics and just seem to say "LULZ IM LOUD" throughout the whole 35 minutes or whatever it'll be..

^ But Slayer isn't commercial...

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

I dunno about badly mastered, but Metallica - St Anger was badly produced. I thought it was a good album, but could've been produced better. I don't know much about the studio yet so I don't know the difference between producing and mastering and everything else

im gona have to listen closely now, u might have spoiled it for me!

i generally hate any album where the guitar is TOO distorted or has too much overdrive. it destroys ur ears. or anything with an EXTREME use of an effect.

oh if thats it thats just the sound they were going for it fits really good with the whole future space feel
Just because I play the drums doesn't mean I suck at guitar, or ams that I's iz stoopidz.

whats audio clipping, ive always thought this album was produced reeallly nicely

i didnt like the production of the crusade - trivium, it just seemed too sterile, too perfect, unlike alot of metal records which have that edge to them...

That's the sort of band Trivium are though.

Californication is excessively compressed.


That's to give it that annoying poppy chorus sound that you hear everywhere on radio 1 and in commerical pubs.

Almost screechy...

Loads of Testament albums, the engineering makes them all sound so weak. I wish they'd remaster and re-release them.
The DNA results show that Jeremy Kyle is a nob.

incubus - light grenades

badly mastered and produced, theres some good songs on there but most of them sound like crap
pink floyd are better than you

I don't find anything wrong with Californication, i mean, low tech was the sound they were looking for back then right?

Metallica's ...And Justice For All. WHAT DID YOU DO TO POOR JASON??? WHAT???

NOPE

Californication.



I think the mastering was quality in Californication...

I'd say Saint Anger cause it sounds like all the instruments are made of rancid metal...

Ah, and I brought you my bullets,you brought me your love... yhe debut album by MCR was ****y mastering all the way
Every form of control over another person is a crime

Asteras Exarcheion

Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist (a lot of unnecessary junk)
A Perfect Circle - Thirteenth Step (to polished and sugary for me)
Faith No More - Angel Dust (those neo-prog keyboards)

I don't see anything wrong with BH&R.


That's because you have to listen ...


[/lamejoke]
#31
First thing that came to mind was Californication but everyones said that. I can't think of any others...
#33
I can't hear any problems when I listen to BH&R, is it just with the way it was mastered?

Wretch by Kyuss. The production on that album is appalling.
It's not just the production - they're not even in tune on half the songs

I hate the production on Songs for the Deaf - they're great songs but everything is so compressed it does my head in. Rated R sounded much better.

In Utero was mixed pretty crappily, I thought.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

...And Justice For All takes it.

Where the heck is the bass?!
I don't know what I'm doing, but I still do it anyway...

My friend once pointed out that Matt Bellamy breathes really loud when he's singing. Never used to notice it, but now it's horribly apparent. I've gone off Muse after that.

That's not a mastering issue though - that's because he's a crappy singer.

If you listen to the vinyl coopy, you'll find that all the clipping and compression is nonexistant.

Billy Talent's two albums are also victims of the loudness war.

And to the guy who said In Utero, Kurt wanted that album to sound like hardcore punk so they mixed it harshly like that. Kurt has said he hated how professional and commercial Nevermind sounded.
