To pile on Bob Weir!
The Grace Under Pressure album from Rush had some great songs that had all of the balls produced right out of it. Flooded in reverb and almost no low end in the mix.
Same way the previous decade got us these gems: it was in and everybody tried it.
While I don't disagree, I will argue that it still ends up as one of their best albums. I love it.
Forgot to mention, it's really sad that bottom was mixed out so bad. Because I really love Geddy's tone on that record. It's much better than any sounds Alex produced on it in my opinion.
During the 80s, the move towards completely undynamic music made great strides forward.
Audio level starts at 100% and stays that way the entire tune.
For my nomination:
There is no song or band I hate more than this combination.
You're John Kay?!?!?!?
I’ve been called worse
Exactly what I was referring to. The fact that even today the only way you can get a CD version of the original "Tejas" mix is to buy a box set is criminal.
Wow, this thread supports everything I could hear coming at the end of the 70s as I pulled the plug on the radio until the mid 90s. I have never heard most of these songs, because I have about a 15 year blank of "new" music. I didn't miss a thing and as someone already mentioned these songs did not withstand the test of time either.
Maybe I should start a thread for which 80s songs did withstand the test of time. Naw, that would be too short of a thread.
Is that a scarf? Words fail..... ￼￼￼ Gotta love 80's fashion.... It's on a comeback!
I happen to like that song and that band. Reminds me of early highschool days. Huey Lewis is a great harp player.
Heard this over the speakers at work tonight. Reminded me of this thread. Just gawdawful.
I'm lucky enough to have an original pressing of Tejas. Sounds so good with no goofy reverb boinging around.
No shame in that. I've just always absolutely hated that song and everything I've ever heard from ol' Huey. Can't stand them so much that it's honestly to the point of irrationality. Wish I knew why exactly.
I had a DX7 and grew to hate it, thanks to A-ha and a host of others My pet hate DX sound was prevalent on this pinnacle of '80s production and über-cheese. The wilful noodling, that awful DX5 'slam'. Njoy the blocky graphics; they were the best thing about this video.
I cannot listen to anything with a CP in it nowadays. A band I disliked - Keane - were elevated to full-blown hatred status by their signature CP sound.
Oh, and a quick Google shows that Yamaha have re-released the CP range!!
Just as sped-up tempos in countless bands live performances of the era weren’t just the result of the “excitement” of the moment, I often wonder how much the ever-present huge bags of blow had on production then too.
Late night/early mornings, never knowing when “enough was enough”, wanting to utilize everything that was available on everything, spending weeks on a kick drum sound, etc.
Compare/contrast the average polished aural product of 1986 that took weeks/months and to complete with something the Chess brothers did in 1 afternoon in 1956 .
You don’t have to guess which one utilized a fifth of whiskey and a carton of smokes and which one was the result of many ,many deliveries...
Referenced, albeit obliquely, in The Sugarcubes' song 'Blue Eyed Pop' where Einar sings of the 'thousand Pound snare sound' whereby days of studio time were blown on perfecting the gated snare.
No. Just.....no. And I'm mainly a bass player!
That's pretty cool actually.
