BULLHEAD
« on: August 11, 2003, 12:35:20 PM »
Its a great album, no denying that. But couldn't it use a remix?

It doesn't sound a bit flat to any of you all?

i totally agree, but i think that they shouldnt dick too much around with it, because its a really calm and "soft" album and special :P
maybe they could rerecord it :P

yeah, it does sound flat and seems quieter than their other records... it saps the power out of some awesome songs like anaconda... i would masterbate over a rerecorded version of anaconda...

no.
any idea of it sounding flat disappears when you turn the fucker right up. one of my favorite sounding recordings too, the instruments all sound good and sit in the mix well. i don't generally agree with remixing albums after so long because your perspective of how the album should sound is changed over time, maybe influenced by things after the fact. i prefer it to be a statement made at the time, it's positives and flaws making it what it is. and i hope you didn't mean that dance sort of remix... :(

hmmm, its weird. The production makes Exocrism sweet, but it kinda fucks over anaconda. I didn't know how sweet anaconda was until i heard it live.

The production value of a record is just as much a part of its musicality and its atmosphere as any other aspect of the record.  It is what it is and it is the melvins.(?)  The image on the CD is a condom and if you have a copy of Bullhead on vinyl you can tell that the border that frames the back of the record is a bunch of condoms (in the wrapper) as well.

A remix could just as easily sound worse.

worse compared to what? if you add this "freshness" it would be the album as is-compared to the new version. only by fucking with it can you see if it's worse. ha...or better...
and what's the concept behind the remix..what would you want to get out of it, or change? bring in some brand new digital protools and add some sterile freshness.
now if the topic was who would like to sit in a studio and play around with the master for fun i'd be in on it!
