So, "Mixed by Ali" mixed the record or not?

The Jury still seems to be out on that.

Majority of mainstream mixes are not that great tbh. They're straight, and do the job, but nothing amazing. Everything is smashed aka loudness wars.

no because that would mean a 27 year old did a better job than people twice his age

He was even younger when he mixed To Pimp A Butterfly, and no one seems to dispute his role on that album.

I won't speak on the mixes as I've only listened via Apple Music. But if a younger cat did mix this, I'm rooting for him.

As for the material, I liked exactly half. Yah, Element, Feel, Pride, (back half of) XXX, Fear & Duckworth. Unfortunately, .500 is not enough for a vinyl purchase.
The tracks are typically at fault for the songs I don't care for. And I agree with the posters not into those voices he does, though they're never bad enough for me to dislike a song.

Sony C800G - Neve 1073 - TubeTech CL1B
or
Neumann u47 (tube) - Neve 1073 - TubeTech CL1B

Depending on if Kendrick did melodic rap or agressive rap.

He also told on Pensado's Place he likes to use DBX 160 on vocals, and Fairchild 670 on Parralel Buss for vox.

He mixes on an Auratone in mono, then check the mix in stereo on the NS10m and the Augspurger. But 80-90% of the mix is done in the Auratone in mono.

Cheers
