I'm going to stick up for Tommy here! Rock musicians are damned if they do- damned if they don't nowadays. If you put overdriven guitars on tracks at present your asking for little airplay - unless say your a big established act. Less gain,cleaner guitars are the current norm with tracks been very drum heavy and very simple/repetitive chord structure wise --- take Katie Perry 'Roar' - basically based around two chords.....
Your all going to say this is a rock site - true - but a melodic rock site that covers many areas of rock. Is Rick Springfield or Survivor as heavy as Shinedown or Alter Bridge? No......
Mutt is a commercial genius and I'm sure to him it's about mass appeal and success matched with great songs and production. Not everything he touches turns to gold - but more than most top producers.......
I'm sure the album will be a modern pop/rock record designed for maximum exposure which means following current trends with maybe a twist here and there with Mutts trademark sound thrown in.
I don't mind the song - harmless pop with a touch of rock that will sound good on the radio. Dare I ask Tommy - would that have been the song you would of chosen to debut with knowing the album?
Now time to be a geek - sorry guys but I'd love to know the following as I'm a huge Mutt fan.
who mixed it? (Nothing to do with late Mike Shipley?- suicide wasn't it? - how sad)
Did you track with plug ins or real amps (guess he took D.I out anyway?) and if so which ones?
Did you go blind into sessions or did you have demo's sent to help prepare (with Mutt guides?)
Did/does he track lead vocal guides ?
Were all tracks written before production? Did he write to a backing track he made or all written to melody?
How many tracks did you/he work on and have they all made the album?
What production tricks did you learn?
Synth bass doubling live bass?
Double/ triple tracked lead vox?
Hope you answer Tommy - one of my dreams is to meet the man and him to hear some of my stuff..... You must have been over the moon to be asked - how did you get the gig? Perry next? Lol

By the way Tommy - Have you tried the Kemper Modelling Profiler yet? If so thoughts?
Sorry for the long message and hope others are interested in the above too.......
