No, it still wasn't loud enough because that is a badly produced, horribly quiet album.

...what. The production on Welcome to Sky Valley is outstanding! Even though Brant's a total cymbal smasher you don't hear an annoying "psssssh" like on a lot of other albums he played on (The Action is Go by Fu Manchu comes to mind). The basslines are actually audible even though Josh's guitar is low as hell and the frequency spectrum is generally pretty even- the fact that the album isn't a sludgy mess is proof of that. When it comes to stoner rock, you really can't ask a whole lot more from the production than what you get with Sky Valley. And as for the quiet thing, do you mean in terms of the mastering or the songs themselves? The mastering is perfectly fine on Sky Valley, it didn't ruin the mix as some shit mastering jobs do and the dynamics were preserved since the master wasn't jacked to hell.

Quiet maybe, since it's pre-volume war and not compressed...
Badly produced?

I will be making the metalsetlists end of year submission thread this weekend.

Would anyone be interested in two lists: top albums and top ep's?

Personally no interest in EPs, but I know some of the sub-genres I don't like have had a good year for them, so I'd guess it'll be popular.

You're only doing it so you can include K-pop, aren't you?

I'm against an EP list personally. I've only heard 5-6 this year and the only one that I feel strongly about is Revocation.

But that's your fault. Doesn't make the idea a bad one, or mean that you have to participate if he does include an EP list.

I'm fully aware it's my own doing and that I wouldn't have to participate if there was an EP poll, but regardless I still don't like the idea of having an EP poll.
