BAD COMPANYFor heavy rock, this has to be one of the best produced CD's I've come across in a long time. It also has to be one of the most contrasting CD's I've ever purchased. I've never heard a band go from "Rock" to "Shock" so quickly and do them both very, very well. Killer guitar tones, great vocal tones and superb production quality.
I was listening to Pandora.com while working on my latest Mic-Mod PCB when the song "Bad Company" played. It immediately sounded familiar, yet modern. They had my attention, but, it wasn't the same Bad Company song that was released in the 1970's. This one totally rocked. I couldn't believe what these guys had done to that song!
PRO TOOLS REFERENCE TRACKSI listen to tracks 2, 5, 7, 10, 11 and 12. "Bad Company" is track 12. The other tracks are a much heavier and more aggressive style that I'm not really into.
I now use some of their tracks as "mix references" in my Pro Tools sessions. Although their recording quality will be very hard to match, it really gives me a target that I find worthy of the effort.
Thanks for reading,
