This month's mix rescue by Gordon McNeil brings to mind the leveling
choices of the Kaiser Chiefs' 2008 album (especially Always Happens
Like That [Spotify Link]
). While I thought the rather loud bass sound on Off With
Their Heads sounded quite cool when it was first released, I'm not sure I think the big
kick drum sound fits the Rio Callahan track nearly as good.
Any other opinions
on this kind of very prominent leveling/separation/EQ choices?
