It's mix time again!
This year was a little tricky for a few reasons. One: while albums as a whole were a bit disappointing in 2009, plenty of individual tracks shone through and it was tough to not only pick the best to go together but also getting them to play nicely with each other. Two: formatting was a bitch this year with plenty of stuff being either digital- or vinyl-only so trying to find the best possible source for a track proved kind of tricky. And three: the effing loudness wars - seriously, it is getting a bit ridiculous. Check it:
Really? Shouldn't Trent and/or someone in Jane's Addiction know better? For shame.
Anyways, so getting it all to sound good when put in a row was tough and I'm sure it could be better, but there you go.
