Re: Not a Mutt Lange fan...

What one overlooks is that Lange isn't just a producer. He's a songwriter- probably one of the best in the business. If one looks at all those "samey" albums, they'll see Lange wrote all the songs! All of them. Shouldn't a writer's songs sound similar?

The records Lange didn't write - Highway to Hell, and High 'N Dry - for example, sound noticeably different. Likewise, Fairbairn and Elson don't write music (generally) so it's not surprising to hear major differences between their records.

There are lots of producers besides Lange who write songs on albums. Matrix is one to come to mind. Matrix albums, funnily enough, also sound the same.

So this really has nothing to do with Lange, although one might not like his records. But rather it has everything to do with the role of the producer - what it "ought" to be, or "ought not" to be.
