SMC, I noticed a big difference in clarity/quality in Nas' 2001 Illmatic vs the 2012 Life is Good Album as well. Seems like the vibe for LiG was intentional distortion to go along with the vintage vibe of the samples in most of the tracks.

Stillmatic, I understand was from a different era but there's a separation between the instruments clearly and the punch is harder. I found the Untitled album to be a cross between the two albums' mix styles.

Do you think it sounds like LiG was mixed more ITB, since Pro Tools was still coming on the scene more in 2001?
