The Sonics of Hotdog...

I had my trepidations when the name John A. Rivers was mentioned in regards to the latest album. Ever since I'd heard his terrible remastering of the Jacobites' "Robespierre's Velvet Basement," I have not been a fan of his "sound" (despite his glorious production history). To my dismay, Hotdog... was no different.

I personally find it overly compressed and EQ'ed in such a way as to be almost headache-inducing. It may be more radio/ipod friendly, but it's simply a disappointing sounding record, especially considering his earlier work. I far more prefer the first two albums, sonically. Of course, one man's good sound is another man's disappointment...

Fortunately, it's more than balanced by the strong songs.
