  1. Just gave a listen to a few tracks. Concerning comments about compression, I think this mix is not overly compressed but there does seem to be a generous use of a limiter. Now compression and limiting kind of achieve the same effect but in a different way. I looked at the waveform in Sound Forge and the softer passages have a open look but the louder parts have the tops of the waveform quite leveled off. I compared it to the JEMS boot and that one is much more open. However at first listen I like the Nugs better. It has more punch and the mix is noticeably better. Compression and limiting are both valuable mastering tools, they are just too often overused. I think this sounds good but I do wish they would have backed off the limiter a bit.
  2. Then save your money. Some can't tell the difference between mp3 and lossless. Do what;s right for you.
  3. The Atlanta broadcast had weather interference issues so this should be an improvement even if you like the bootleg. I look foreword to this.
  4. Come on now. Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello easily come to mind. Bruce isn't the only artist to have a long and varied career.
  5. "It’s not that hard. If I pull out something from 1980, or 1985, or 1970, it’s amazing how you can slip into that voice." Not so sure I would agree with that.
  6. Releasing LT and HT simultaneously was a big mistake. If Lucky Town had it's own release and promotion it would have fared far better with the public and the critics. Human Touch was the dead weight.
  7. And there's hundreds of them. That doesn't make it any better.
  8. I'm not sure what you're point is, everyone knows that. I think people were talking about what they think should have been on The River. And it came out before Tracks. As everybody knows.
  9. Oh., I think Be True is far superior and would have notched The River up a bit.
  10. I don't get where the "edge" is. Maybe we define edgy differently.
  11. Yeah well one person's voicing of an honest opinion is another person's bashing. As a basher I'd like to see a rockin' E street album. And please, no synth.
  12. Can't say that I'm aware of the controversy. I do think it's the best Willburry's song.
  13. Oh, OK. Then also Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Buddy Holly and Paul McCartney. (The original one)
  14. I'm a big fan of The Band and quite enjoyed it. It's definitely from Robbie's perspective. I'd like to have heard from Garth but it's worth a look.
  15. I don't always agree with you Daisey but when I do, I really do.
  16. I don't completely agree with this opinion but I like your username.
