Albums With Good/bad Production
1 Albums
With Good Production

Can be in the technical sense, or just a sound that really fits the music.
2Porcupine Tree
In Absentia

One of the cleanest, most crisply produced albums I know
Crack the Skye

Somehow manages to preserve the many small details while achieving a punchy, powerful sound
4Joy Division

Martin Hannett captured the sound of isolation like no-one before or since.
At Action Park

Steve Albini records drums like no-one else can
6Donald Fagen
The Nightfly

Produced with a gleaming chrome sheen that perfectly matches the music. Sonically flawless

With bad production

be they victims of the loudness war, badly dated or produced by Daniel Lanois, all these albums suffer due to the recording job.
8Iggy and the Stooges
Raw Power

Pretty much everything in the red all of the time. The remixed version is even worse...
9Bob Dylan
Oh Mercy

Lanois' production style of burying everything under 100 metric tonnes of reverb hasn't aged well.
Disraeli Gears

Sounds absolutely puny compared to other rock albums of the time. Instruments sound like they have been recorded separately, in different rooms. Ginger Baker's powerful drumming is pathetically captured.
...And Justice For All

WHERE THE HELL IS MY GODDAMNED BASS? Bonus points for making Lars sound like he's playing with a pair of toothpicks.
12The Beatles
Let It Be

Whereby Phil Spector pisses pointless strings all over a great set of songs
