Yeah i heard it today actually.
It didn't sound as intimate though.
I guess the first record was a "happy accident".
The reason i thought about encoding it with DBX is that in the old days the cheap DBX encoding built into 4 tracks and 8 tracks tended to darken things up.
So my thought was if i encode it with DBX and play it back without it, i can run the track through a noise reduction plug in and get that warble that's you here on Sam Beam's voice on the song.
Also the guitar sounds really dry and compressed(almost like plastic) and i can simulate this also.
Man who would have ever thunk it that i would be going this out of my way to make a mix sound like crap.
