I guess an overall sound sensibility of things that I liked (drum sounds, guitar tones, vocal effects, etc) is what opened doors for me.
After further thought, I think the biggest thing that opened doors was the fact that I'm a pop geek! I love hooks and melodies, and in a lot of the early punk albums I recorded, I was able to sort through the mess and bring the hooks out, or if there were no hooks, help create them.
