No matter how exceptional the mixing and mastering, the song and it's performance are what make something good rather than just listenable. You have to capture and present it but from my own experience the better the performance is the easier that is. If I play something good, well, I find it just sounds good without any/much production, if I don't it can turn into a chain of plug ins when I should be spending that time playing better or changing that part altogether.

Performance first, second and third
Production next.
Both together is the hope.
