I don't get why everybody is bitching about production. It sounds great. The drums are the perfect volume. I'm a guitar player myself, and the guitars are not muddy at all, sounds like a typical boosted 5150, the exact sound they said they were going for.

Drums are really too quiet, guitars lack the sharpness of Constellations, and when the lead throws a riff, it really sounds unbalanced. I hope this is just due to poor bitrate or fucked file conversion though. I'm confused.

Why are we all talking about the mixing? It's streaming audio stream off the net, of course it won't sound shit hot. Even though if you ask me it sounds exactly like Constellations.

Contradictory much? Unless you think Constellations sounds like shit. Disregarding the stream quality, Leveler still won't sound as sharp.

Welp then please explain yourself. If you think the mixing on Constellations is fine, then how can you tell this if you imply that it's not possible to judge because of bad stream quality?

@Beta
it's not possible to judge an album's mix from an audio stream because the quality could make it sound worse than the actual mix is. however, he believes even this possibly poor prerelease stream sounds like the final mix of constellations does, so he doesn't understand the complaints. totally not contradictory OR pointless

i don't get the overwhelmingly positive response to these. abr was my favorite band around the release of constellations (which i loved and still enjoy), but i haven't really enjoyed any of these yet. they're all pretty boring imo. + jake's lyrics are sooo much worse this time around

So you were just talking about the overall musicianship. The "even though" got me confused, my bad. It seemed linked with what you said just before (thought you were comparing the mix on Constellations and the stream).

And that's not me saying that the mix on Constellations was terrible (even though I don't think it was great), I just find a lot of the guitar tones to sound the same, in comparison to Messengers

"EXACTLY"

"I just find a lot of the guitar tones to sound the same"
That's clearly nuanced here.
When you said that it sounds like Constellations, i understood "it doesn't sound shit hot either". Nvm.

He's a great lead player no doubt, but small leads every now and then seem to be a better fit than a long guitar solo in the middle of a song.

His work in this song is great, but other than this none of the others have caught my eye as far as lead work is concerned. His work on Constellations is incredible, he made the songs so much better with his leads everywhere.

Jake's lyrics have been weaker on this album, which really sucks. I liked a lot of Constellations lyrics. I do think his vocals have gotten better though. Way more range.

I've liked all 4, but all so disjunct. None of them sound the same to me. Especially the first 3 do not flow. Also as its been said, I'm hating the guitar solos in EVERY song.

I did read in the AP review though that Salt & Light is gonna be post-rock. Stoked for that.

Constellations with Messengers' production would be ideal. This album seems to even have worse production than Constellations... And I can't judge the quality of this album's actual music based on a few singles, but this seems to be worse than Constellations in that respect as well. Fingers crossed that I'm wrong.
