Andy Wallace mix = LOUD master?

Does Andy's mixing allow for louder masters? I was trying to get one of my clients songs to be as hot as Chevelles' 'The Red' and though I can get the same relative freq. response and RMS levels, the percieved hugeness of his mix is overwhelmingly loud(liki 2-3 dbs more). Or is the percieved loudness achieved by the mastering engineer?

I'm thinking that Andy pushing the console into saturation could be a big part of it.
