People are way too obsessive about production these days. Robin Beck's CD sounds fine to me.
I don't know what you regard as the benchmark for great production but not every album will achieve it. That has always been the case and always will be. The internet age has turned everyone into a reviewer subconciously noting things to knock points off in your own mental scoring system, whether that be production or the artwork....I am probably as guilty as the next man. I am pretty sure back in the day I just used to listen to the music and either like it or not without analyzing the bejesus out of it.
I still listen to music on my 1990s Technics hi-fi separates. I don't care for re-masters unless the original was atrocious, hell I even still listen to tapes and vinyl. The variance in quality is massive and 90% of it isn't as good sonically as the worst CDs turned out today. Does that stop me enjoying it?
No.
I have decided, if I reach the point where I start to turn my nose up at music cos it doesn't sound as good as the best then it's probably time to find a new source of enjoyment cos it will drive me to distraction. Like chasing squeaks and rattles in your car, you'll never be happy.
By all means celebrate the great productions and if something is unlistenably bad then slate it but most stuff is gonna fall in the middle ground....like much of life.

If something doesn't sound quite perfect, just turn the volume up a lot, that usually cures most production issues I find :)
