I'm a big fan of the majority of Steve Albini's work as a sound engineer, but I've gotta admit it doesn't really shine through on this album. The music is brilliant and, for me, is some of Esben and the Witch's best work, but the overall production just doesn't sound right to me. I know Albini is renowned for his 'less is more' ethic and I for one hate the over-produced plasticness of a lot of records these days, but it just feels like they recorded the album and completely skipped the post-production stage... For example, listen to the original recording of No Dog on the split release with Thought Forms and compare it to the version on this album - the original mix sounds cohesive and retains the energy and atmosphere of the song, whereas Rachel's vocals seem too dry and distanced from the rest of the mix, and the instruments just don't cut through in Albini's cut.
