Flood Should be Fired for COBL

what a terrible mess this song is. the sound quality and production are god-awful. what the hell was flood thinking? i can't hear anything larry mullin is doing in this song.

so much potential down the drain. in the tradition of several songs off Pop, I predict COBL will be on U2's Best of Vol. III as "COBL (New Mix)"...

There are some rough spots on this album sound wise. On the beginning of "Sometimes you..." the bass seems way too loud; and Bono sounds like he's just getting over laryngitis throughout most of the song. I really wish they would have re-recorded the vocal. Perhaps it's me, but I hear a light buzz all throughout that track - like they were trying to make it sound too raw...

COBL sounds okay, although I do agree the drums could have been more prominent....

Same here. Its not even as bad as some of the mixing on Pop.

Considering how many albums Flood has been a part of I think he knows what hes doing by now.

What do you want these tracks to do jump out and have sex with you?

Maybe it could have been improved quality wise maybe not we were not in the studio

I can see what yoyu are saying. COBL sound quality isn't as clear as what it could be. Great song but could have been perfect. I agree about the drums too. Love and Peace is weird for me, I like the song just feel it's in the wrong place on the album. The song to me doesn't know which way it's going and I think that obviously comes down to production.

At last somebody that agrees with me on this song. You have good ears my friend its a fuc#ing mess when you listen to this on a decent hi-fi, and also SYCMIOYO is also a very poor mix as well.

Opinions on production are just as subjective as opinions on the tunes themselves. It just makes someone look cooler to say, "the mix sucks, the production sucks" blah, blah, blah. Also note, many of those bashing the production have very few positive posts about the band.

City Of Blinding Lights - drums in mono and low in the mix.

Flood has always been bad news for U2.

He is the one responsible for that train wreck called POP.

Cheers,

No one can ever just be happy we have new music.
