Is it just me or are the IRS R.E.M. albums (everything before Green) really rewarding for good equipment? I used to hate 'em when I just had MX400s. Couldn't hear the vocals, everything sounded mushy and far away. Now I have much better stuff, they sound fantastic; I guess because they don't have any of the compression, 'exciting' equalisation, over-emphasised vocals etc that lots of mixes have in order to sound good on MX400s. If only Warner mixed them the same...
