Thanks for the link. I thought I'd been to pretty much all the recording websites but there's one I hadn't seen.

Is this what the kiddies are learning today?

"This is a cop-out. There are “perfect takes,” for sure, but for a professional (or a self-described genius like John Lennon) there’s no such thing as a take so perfect it can’t be recreated."

"This is another cop-out. Mixing engineers have their own version of the fourth wall, and Pensado broke it with this mix. Honest or not, the bleed reminds listeners of the technology used to record, and that distracts us from Aguilera’s performance."

We're doomed. Forest for the trees and all that.

Excluded from mention RE: Police's Roxanne -- The band has claimed in interviews that the single keyboard chord at the head of the song was a mistake left in. Supposedly, Sting leaned on a piano before the take, thinking the keyboard lid was closed, and it wasn't. That's not an engineering gaff, but, if true, is a good example of capitalizing on a lucky goof-up.

RE: Aguilera's Beautiful: I'd read the producer say that take was obtained by having Christina lie on her back in the dark and take her mind off "performing the song" and onto getting into the interior emotion of the song. And they chose it because it captured her feelings the best. I think that's good reason enough to use it.
