    Artists such as Tool, Foofighters, T.I, Kendrick, Cole, and others have shown that a recording can be mastered more than loud enough without compressing the dogsnot out of it. Why can't the "labels that be" understand this? Why can't they put out a well-mastered recording they can be proud of, rather than giving us "MBDTF". I remember Kanye's producers responded to the criticism of the album by saying that the album was mastered that way to feel the 36 chambers or whatever. I sort of agree. It IS supposed to jump out of your speakers - not jump out and put the knees on your back.

    I just don't understand why the major labels can't seem to learn from their mistakes. With "MBDTF", the backlash was huge. Thousands of people signed a petition to have it remastered. You would think that eventually they would start to "get it".

    Imo If it sounds good it sounds good. Take whatever liberties you want to take with how it鈥檚 mixed.

    people legitimately don't care that much about how well mixed something is, contrary to popular belief.

    If they did, Anti would be in museums.

    Glad you said it. In this era alone, we've had a plethora of hits and mixtapes from artists in which the record(s) weren't even close to mastered.

    As you said, no one cares and even if they did, they don't have the ears to tell the difference so it makes little sense to invest extra bread on that.

    boi-1da said himself in an interview he don't give a f*** if his kicks clip. And he got some of the hardest drums in the business.

    you just gotta do what you want and f*** with your sound. The audience will adjust. Knxwledge's "unique mixing" is part of why people like him.
