I think there is more effort and thought here from Bradford that he's given credit for. I don't think he cart blanched it to a certain mix and production for all songs. For instance - the piano instrumental in Junkyard Blues. People complain about the low mix of the piano



I agree that Bradford deserves alot of credit.

As for the piano instrumental in Junkyard Blues, it could have been mastered more carfully in my opinion. For example, when I'm listening in the car, I turn up the overall volume as Morse's guitar fades and Airey's piano takes over. It sounds good and natural, thankfully Paice eases up on the snare as I turn up the volume. It works. Then when Morse returns to lead guitar I turn the volume back down, but only part of the way. That gives the remainder of Junkyard Blues a little extra power. Just having fun with the volume knob. emoticon

Ormandy, I find myself doing the same thing. Don's piano lead is really good. Sometimes I wonder if Bradford was trying to draw the listener into the song rather than having it right in your face. At least that's the only reason I can think of for such a marked drop in sound level.

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


I hear a drop in several places...take DLG electric piano solo,very dropped from the arrangement,but Bradford kept the drum cracking,so maybe that was the effect he was looking for,cause it's one of the better Paice moments on the album,as far as how clear he sounds throughout....not much imo.

Mix drums as a rock instrument please.

Funnily enough,if this was regaee...he'd be fired for mixing drums that way,as it's the main instrument in that music,or it's the most up front anyway.
Jazz if fine to me,but not in large doses by a rock band.
