It sounds like dick imo. I kind of get the appeal and the disdain for "over-produced" stuff, but I like the clarity that comes with actual production values. I'd rather listen to something that can be deciphered and digested cleanly than something that sounds like it was recorded with a water-logged mic hung from the ceiling of a concrete basement.
Appreciate the in-depth reply, though. I'm a little behind on getting to the stuff that y'all posted, but I'll definitely have some more time this weekend.
