The debate over best LPs brought to mind an issue regarding "Frenzy" which seems to be a favourite LP among many.
It's been a while since I've read Mike Chunn's book which might answer this question, but does anyone else notice how bad the production is? Like how muddy the album is generally and how some instruments are practically buried?
I guess I'm thinking of things like that brilliant distorted guitar figure in "Marooned", the acoustic guitar in "Stuff and Nonsense" (which I never heard until it was cleaned up for "Spellbound") and other bits here and there which suffered because many of the songs sound like they were compressed into a tiny litle ball...
I can only imagine what say "Mind Over Matter" or "Master Plan" might sound like if the tracks had a bit more room to breathe, so to speak, so I was really disappointed that my CD copy (from the Gold box) sounded almost exactly like the old cassette copy I used to have.
Or am I just imagining this...?
