Notes: Heavy compression is part of the sound of the production/engineering team of Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake. While the entire album offers a wealth of examples, this tune is chosen because, well, the tune grooves hard. Compression is heavy on the vocal; no matter how much he screams, the vocal stays locked-in at one level. It is on the guitars; listen to the spring reverb rise up in level between the wailing notes on the rhythm guitar panned right.
