@nightprowler. Great research! I remember reading a little of that on the net a while ago. Lars did it, and james and kirk should have taken lars to the back room, duct tape him to a chair and forced him to watch seseame street episodes untill the mixing was complete! LOL LOL. That sucks what happened jason. But, its the past and it seems that the boys have made up and become better friends. :cool:   On the snowy drum issue, ya, it would have been sweet to have his kick ass drums complete the eye! :)

Part time I do play drums in my brothers thrash metal band. And thats why i also am passionate about the eye. As i said, the eye rules, but mabey i am a tad bias because real drums are the pumping heart of all metal music. :cool:

The focus on production is hugely exaggerated! Most of todays music is more or less overproduced resulting in it feeling too polished and "perfect", making it boring to listen to. Very few bands actually benefit from the nitpicking going on. For me, the actual songs, how they work together and the overall atmosphere of the album are all much, much more important. I prefer a more raw sound that makes it feel more "real" and organic.  A whole bunch of classic albums throughout history are suffering from their productions - for example most of the 80's albums sounds weak by todays standards - but that doesn't make them any worse in my ears, just representative of the time their from.

1. The music
2. Production

@foad. Thank you! And you brought up an excellant point about the st.anger snare. In a wierd way, i would actually choose the eye snare over the st.anger snare. I like lars ulrich and i think he is an incredible drummer, but the st.anger snare is the ultimate sin in snare sounds. I am a drummer and i died a little inside when lars turned the snare band switch off! :(

a remake of the album would suck all the feelings and emotions and atmosphere out of a brilliant album....

I definitely say no.

at first I hated The Eye (because of the electronic drums), I got over myself and found an amazing album with amazing songs.

what if they just remastered it with ONLY real drums substituded in the electronic butt rock, 80's electric drums?  leave the rest.   The more raw the better.
