The Robin Beck production/mix is way too compressed, IMHO. It doesn't impact quite as much on the more 'traditional' songs but the more 'modern' ones mid disc sound like the life has been sucked out of them - the drums sounding particularly weak. Am not sold on some of the guitar sounds either - the solo on Perfect storm has a tone I'm not too keen on.

Songs are growing on me though...Wrecking Ball, Perfect Storm and You Can't Fight Love are fabulous, the Fiona and Glen Burtnik songs have always been fabulous and the vocal performance is excellent throughout.

I felt the same about her last album - the songs were fine, but the mix/production didn't feel quite right. Play them both next to the re-recording of Trouble or Nothing and you'll hear what I mean.
