Great song...but within 5 seconds you can tell Eric Valentine produced this, and that's not a good thing. His drum sounds piss me off more than anything. No meat to them at all. I know he's done some big records, but I don't see the appeal.
I agree that the drum sound on this record so far is not good but i think he did an amazing job overall on louder now...my contention is that this album should have had a similar sound production wise to louder now, just with its own feel (ie different guitar tones, production tricks) but the bass tone on louder now was fucking awesome and the drums rocked (just listen to makedamnsure that song smacks) The vocals were awesome as well...This song (best places to be a mom) sounds super fucking poppy and im not talking about the any of the writing im strictly talking about the production...still the original live version had better lyrics and a better melody...."eject the preconseptions, we both surely have" is piss poor for tbs...."she says live up to your first impression, my best side was your worst invention"...now thats fucking awesome
