I wonder now that Peter is back online on the forum whether he's able to give us more of an insight into the production of The Savage Playground?

Even as recently as just last week I had someone say to me "I finally heard the last crashdiet album. What was up with the production?"

I'd be intrested too, but does anybody else who was a little astonished first totally not hear it anymore too?

I still hear it but I take the album for what it is.
It's not a massive issue to me, but i always still wonder what it would have sounded like with production like Generation Wild.

I do find that it can however be a bigger issue to people who may only be casual crashdiet listeners.

I actually like that kind of raw production, it has a live feeling to it. Of course it's not as "slick" as on Generation Wild but I take it as a little experiment with sound, not really a bad one actually. It makes me think a bit of Metallica's ...And Justice For All which also is a controversial album when it comes to production. But then it is what it was supposed to be, just like Savage. We can wonder how would it sound with a different production but at the same time it's what makes that album unique. It's there for a reason! ;)

I‘ve heard from a lot of people, that they prefer a raw, original sound and don‘t like it that overproduced, but I actually really go for it. Even though I like that clean, well produced sound, I like the sound of TSP, but I thought on a record like TUR for exaple, that the bass sounded much better. I fuckin‘ love Peters sound on this record.

but does being raw sounding have to take away from the clarity?

This right here..

I'm perfectly okay with the raw sound, but when i downloaded the mp3 files from itunes it was impossible for me to crank up the album without hearing a bunch of noise and muffling up the sound. Once I finally got the album in the mail I immediately downloaded it and made them lossless files rather than mp3s and it made a world of difference for clarity. In the end I think the album could have been a little more "polished" while still maintaining the raw edgy live feel. Keep the mistakes on some of the solos and don't worry about perfecting every last note, but also allow the album to sound phenomenal when cranked up on the stereo

I probably used the wrong word to describe.

Thanks! No amps were used for the bass, only line in straight to the board and tons of plugins. Amps are overrated. :)

Agreed! But you sure as hell have to know how to use plugins if you go straight to the board, or it will end up sounding flat and boring

Haha, I go along with you on this one! We‘re recording right now and do it the same way. Our producer even bought a Kemper for the guitars.

I prefer the more produced crashdiet albums, but its still a very good album though.
