Koogles I think maybe your interpretation of the sonics of the record is different but I take your point about the synth sound and maybe the snare but I am talking about the overall percussion sound mix. If you listen again you can hardly hear the hi hats on any of the songs as they are just way too low in the mix. When I listen to an album I like to be able to pick out every instrument not just the guitar or the vocals. I used to play the drums myself years ago and failed miserably but I know what I like and I know what sound the hi hats, ride, splash, crash, toms and snares make but the overall sound is below par on Ninja. Likewise, I know what a guitar sounds like and a bass and keys etc ( aint got a clue about the recorder though :-) ) I loved King Kobra to death and still think they are great but when I
play Thrill Of A Lifetime I have to omit the title song because of the out of tune keys. Anyone listening to that album who hadn't noticed before will be pissed after reading this. Also FM UK's 1st album has really off key backing vocals, yes I am afraid I do notice these things. Sometimes things just don't seem right with certain
sounds, could be the bass is too high or not there at all or the vocals are lost but for me the new BOC album has a great sound overall whereas Ninja just doesn't have that extra kick. I wish there was a domestic hifi system that you could remix things on because I'd make it perfect but alas that is not possible so I make do.
The US version was remixed and is different to the UK one but the percussion is not really altered at all. It's more vocal effects on When The War Comes and a few other touches here and there. Anyway getting back to my point Bobby Rondonelli's drum work is excellent on the new album and I can hear everything very clearly. I am going to play both albums back to back as I did yesterday ( louder this time as the wife is out :-) and try again. I'll be back to let you know how it turns out.
