Sure, as you say, he has produced/mixed some excellent stuff over the years but now and then his name appears on less than stellar productions.

Have no idea why, but my guess is that it's much due to the fact that he's trying very much to capture and achieve what the artist(s) wants and expects. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Many bottom heavy albums, definitely, but it's not always the bass/bottom end in itself that I see as a problem. It's often way too loose and boomy which makes the whole sound a little muddy and it certainly lacks the tightness and punch I really like. It's a fine line between those if you want it to sound a "live" as possible.

Then we have the vocal thing he did on the otherwise so brilliant Mr.Big album. Wow! that was annoying. :-)
