Re: Neil Peart
SA and VT have great songs in them. My point was that producers and engineers have been known to ruin albums and from my perspective, thats exactly what had happened.
The person mentioning Presto is also correct. The album sounds like a hole lot of bottom end is missing and the mid-range treble is expanded and over emphasized.
Now for those who dislike Neil. I think a lot of it comes from jealousy, or the fact that he agnostic. No doubt about that- I did listen to Snakes and Arrows after all!
