I have a few questions: When did we (I include myself) decide that the bass needed to sound so clean? That every note up and down the neck should be completely consistent in terms of tone and volume? That every attack should be identical? When did we decide that the bass should be SO BORING in regards to all of these things?
Another question: How great does this track sound? I'll tell you. REALLY GREAT. A little sloppy, really noisy, cymbal bleed through (lots of good implications, there), etc. When did we forget that the bass sounds great when it's gnarly like this?
