Brad, I can't help but find that you're trying so very hard to take a shit on the possibility that an incredible sounding straight to DAW album can harmonically trump an analog tape tracked album when done right.
I know you make a living on telling people that their recordings sound better on tape and thats great, but would you seriously please give it a rest?
Brad, do you seriously think that there isn't engineers/producers out there that have vision, excellent production skills, and use EQ, compression and gain staging properly and tastefully?
