So you knocked Albini, and people ripped on you... So, who do you think is better? Who would you choose to do your album? Of course cost is a factor, but say you've got just enough to hire whoever you want, and you get whatever is left over from your recording budget... I'd be torn between J. Robbins, Dave Sardy and Steve Albini.
Waiting for the next end of the world...

Dave Sardy?!

Hasn't he done The Thrills, Jet, and the new Oasis? Impressive resume. :rolleyes:

For me, I'd go with Kanye or Eno. If I had a dope flow, I'd choose Just Blaze in a heartbeat.

Oh, and Madlib.

Neptunes, and release every song on my album as a single. Bound to be at least one or two hits.

I used to always say that I want my first album produced by Steve Albini and Brian Eno. I meant that as a joke, but who knows?
If you think that your belief is based upon reason, you will support it by argument, rather than by persecution, and will abandon it if the argument goes against you. But if your belief is based on faith, you will realize that argument is useless, and will therefore resort to force either in the form of persecution or by stunting and distorting the minds of the young in what is called "education."

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

Todd Rundgren should produce the next Arcade Fire record. I believe there would be a 50/50 chance of mindblowing genius or utter retardedness.

I just meant the new one. I do like Lyla, Keep The Dream Alive, and Turn Up The Sun. Importance is pretty good too.

Believe me, I don't diss them. I actually visit Oasis fan sites. Morning Glory is my favorite album ever.
