Ha! I know, but David & Polly don't post here. Looking forward to hearing it in context (and surround). Cheers!
Hi Andy,One thing that occurs to me, that maybe nobody is quite appreciating, is that Div Bell was a "start again' mix, in which I severely disregarded the existing stereo mix, except for essential balance relationships, as I don't like the stereo mix. If that new mix had been stereo, it still would've been 'radically different'.
All the other albums (on a island, endless river and the new DG) are working from the stereo mix (as they were done at the same time), as is the brief, so they essentially sound like the stereos, except in surround. Maybe what everyone really likes about Div Bell is the less screwed up mix
Not that I said that of course
