So, hold on, absolutely nobody voted for Holger Czukay?

and I don't really listen to much glam rock and appreciate that Chinnichap became a byword for canned and formulaic but that is a pretty amazingly SHINY sound right there

Mike Leander!!!!!!!

yeah fridmann would've gotten a lot of 'anti' votes if that had been part of the poll

I actually considered Mike Leander!

man I went through this list multiple times (pretty much after every ballot came in) to check for duplicates/vote splitting and I STILL fucked this up arggh

I guess the Neptunes would have placed a bit higher then... Lindsey Buckingham still wouldn't have made the cut tho

Wait a min, whuzziss?

Lindsey Buckingham 59
lyndsey buckingham 11

RECOUNT!

(aah he still wouldn't have placed, but now I feel guilty because his presence on my ballot would have catapulted him into the top 50)

My off-the-dome 'anti' top 3:

3. Jeff Lynne
2. Joe Thomas
1. Walter Afanasieff, who repeatedly employs every cliched production frill imagineable in failed attempts to build emotion as a song progresses (thundering snare hits! weepy bowed orchestral strings! raising the key and slowing down just before the last verse!) for the likes of Celion Dion, Michael Bolton, and Mariah Carey.

3. Jeff Lynne

waaaaaht dude those ELO records sound amazing

unorthodox economic revenge (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

True, but I hate the ELO sheen he put on other peoples records -- Edmunds, Harrison, Wilburys.

Martyr McFly (WmC), Monday, 24 October 2011 16:53 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah not gonna argue about that

unorthodox economic revenge (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 24 October 2011 17:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

I like how lush Lynne's production can be, but can we lose that synthetic sheen that drapes everything, all the buzzy synths, etc.? It's like the finished product was processed through a volume compressor before being pressed to disc. Agreed that aesthetic worked for ELO (although even there it was needlessly gimmicky - did "I Can't Get It Out Of My Head" really need the vocals processed through a wah-wah pedal?), but it's all wrong for his '80s-and-beyond production for others.

Everything else is secondary (Lee626), Monday, 24 October 2011 20:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, Lynne's the only guy whose "overproduction" I've ever complained about
