Reply to "New album: "Out Of Silence"... Is he bringing us along for the ride?"

ah ok. Hmm, I love the rest of his plan but this mixing/mastering part kind of worries me. Even someone like Bob Clearmountain, known for his speed, might still take several hours to mix a song (I seem to recall it took him about 10 days to mix Together Alone, which was considered blisteringly fast). Neil also says this album features his most complex arrangements to date.

All of which makes it seem very reckless to mix 11 tracks in one day AND leave time enough to master.

I'm all for the spontaneity and crowd-sourcing of the album recording process. But I wish he'd allow even just TWO days to mix and master.

Right? I agree with the comments about trying to throw some spontaneity and urgency into the recording process, but I'm not really sure I see the creative advantage of forcing yourself to mix, master and release an album in one day. If, for whatever reason, he really IS attempting to avoid the issues from which some say "Intriguer" suffered, I would think those issues originated long before the mixing and mastering stages. Then again, NF knows himself and how to make albums as well as anyone does, so he must have his reasons.
