Thanks, it was a pleasure to work on - I just tried to stay out of the way!

Mastered by Brad.  Great sound!  Plenty of dynamics.

Any comments on the mastering process for this one?

It's a pleasure to work with so many talented folks! I was thrilled that the way I cut it initially (dynamics-wise) was never once questioned.

I bought this the other day and the dynamics make me smile, but the music gives me goosebumps. Thanks for not killing the beauty of this record, Brad.

Always the most fun sessions. I'll be picking it up for sure.

I've always been a fan of their music.  Top class musicians all.  It must have been a blast to work on the project.  I've listened twice through and then looked at some stats and wave forms (boring).  Great dynamics.  Nice and balanced.  One for my reference stack.  Brad, you did a fabulous job.  I feel fortunate to be able to hang here with such talented company.

I'm hearing a little more compression on Alison's voice on this one.  I realize it would probably happened before you got a hold of it, but was wondering if you shed any light on that.

Hey Greg, glad you're digging it - it was truly a blast to work on!

As for compression, I did none in mastering, only EQ. Mike really poured himself into this record (like he does all of them, really) and the mixes he delivered were just incredible.
