You see, what I'm saying is not an opinion. I love all the songs on ANATO, can't believe how complex they can get without losing control of the song, the epicness. Bhe production is really bad. Granted ATTWS is the better one among others production-wise, but I just can't handle it long enough to enjoy it. If you can, that's okay. If you like a wall of sound full of clippings more than a properly produced song that has much more dynamic range, that's okay. Well, not okay per se, but it's not my place to judge.Darth Arrow wrote:+1bestpike wrote:I must have been listening to a different track for the last 10 years.somnia wrote: I'm sorry, but that's wrong. Old version (and all of ANATO) had a very shitty production with absolutely no dynamic range, every sound and the whole mix compressed to the effing peak with a low enough overall volume to compensate. An insult to the awesome music, unbearable pain for our ears and a black mark for Blind Guardian. I can't for the life of me stand that for more than a song at a time. It feels like bleeding from my ears, inwards.
I too am one of those who likes the original ATTWS over the rerecorded one. Rerecorded has its points, it's much clearer, sharper and allaround "tidier", but I love the old versions "epicness" and the fact that it's so "full" actually benefits the song imo. New version is great, but it won't take the old off the pedestral for me
The snarky manner in bestpike's comment, on the other hand, is a whole other matter.
