What percentage of casual music fans/buyers even know who Mutt Lange is, much less which albums he did or didn't produce? The fact that he has a signature sound is hardly a negative in my book, but I understand your point and respect your opinion.

But it's really up to the artist how they want to their albums to sound. If you have the time and resources to pay attention to detail, layer and create a larger than life sound, there's nothing wrong with making the audio equivalent of the summer blockbuster movie.

Coming off the Pyromania tour, Leppard wanted to use Mutt again but he was unavailable after having spent so much time producing The Cars' Heartbeat City album. They hired Jim Steinman because he was literally the only one available. It was a disaster because Jim had no direction, no input and no ability to produce music up to the Leps standard.

But don't think for one minute it's not about the SONGS! You can't polish a turd and there's a reason why certain bands/singers are platinum ten times over and others never sniff gold. The cream always rises to the top. There's a reason why we still hear Def Leppard, AC/DC, Foreigner, Shania Twain, etc... on the radio to this day.
