Go see them live and you'll change your mind.

Though I suppose you don't care enough.

The songwriting on this album is a 4-4.5, but the production is a 2. I'd rather hear lo-fi black metal than the ridiculous overproduction on this. The guitars are so produced that they hardly sound like guitars at times, and why they decided to auto-tune Jason's vocals so much, I'll never know.

Production fucks this album so badly. I'd probably give it a 3 if it wasn't so bad.

I can't even hear the guitars properly dude, how did this get out of the studio in this state?

for some reason, even coming from a perspective of a sound engineer who typically hates this style of production, it grew on me a lot.

I really have no idea how they thought this sounded good and was ready to be put out. I know nothing about producing but if I heard this I'd say do something different because this sucks.

Honestly I think they did it for one reason and one reason only. Fake history was quickly a post hardcore classic among the core followers of the genre. its a near perfect album and the production was nice and crisp. they had a few options. Over produce it, real crisp and clean, no grit. keep It the same as fake history and risk having a fake history 2.0 or basically altering the quality and over producing it so it sounds like it's own beast. they did the last.

That makes no sense tbh dude, overproduction only works for a handful of artists.

A letlive song came on shuffle when I was in the shower the other day and I was like, "Yeah! This production DOES blow! I finally get it now!" only to find out it was from Fake History. Oh well.

Production doesn't annoy me one bit personally but yeah I can see how others dislike it, quite easily so.
