That makes sense. But after it's in the can and someone outside of the creative process says—as a compliment, especially—it sounds like {my favorite thing}, then even if that's an appalling thought, the artist should go with it because it's impossible to argue. If something in a Sex Pistols song reminds me of Enya, that's 100% truth, unassailable fact. If the artist doesn't hear it they can say so, but to say the listener is wrong, that's wrong too.

In backing out of a benefit show with Steve Earle, David Byrne wrote:
I was truly looking forward to joining Stephen and his friend Terry Allen in this show- and supporting the school's better understanding for neurodivergent folks of all ages. Had songs picked out and everything, but an unexpected medical situation was discovered and sadly the treatment is scheduled the week of the show. It can't be changed
So now I'm worried about David.

Bill, hi, Memories Can Wait from Talking Heads is from the Fear Of Music album, not More Songs About Buildings and Food.

I listened to a bunch of songs from RIL (my favourite album) and it sounds very differently (in a good way). My CDs/FLACs are the older vanilla ones (not re-mastered or whatever they keep re-doing nowadays).

Right, but from my quick read of the page Richard shared, it sounds like they sort of cobbed it up anyway, but left enough good signal that the downmixer guy could move some of the elements off of dead center; make it easier to distinguish each element. I'll be interested to hear what you think...
