I don't really know why they do it like that- it SOUNDS like they did it that way- very unnatural how the cymbals have an entirely different sonic signature to them, imho.
They float over the rest of the kit- don't mesh at all- well that is how it sounds to me.

I'm a huge fan of QOTSA and the Ginger Elvis but this is one thing that I just don't get.
