given the recent rerelease of the stooge's raw power highlighted bowie's mix (ugh) instead of iggy's mix (yay!), i'd like to know which one people like better, and why, if you can explain it. to me, iggy's mix pretty much delivers on the promise of the album's title, sonics and eardrums be damned. bowie's is just a hollow, limp thing where almost every mixing decision is wrongheaded and horrible. (i love bowie, but this has to be one of his worst blunders ever.) just my opinion, but i'd like to hear other opinions, especially those FOR bowie's mix. maybe i'm missing something.
