I find that I go back to Gene Vincent, Elvis, Little Richard, Fats, etc because I find the mixes have space, breathing room. There is musicality instead of a sonic assault.

The sonic assault of your average modern rock cd (pop punk, emo, metal) gets wearying. Everything is mixed fully into each channel, as though we have two complete mono mixes for your stereo assault.

I have always felt a lot of the newer bands sonic overload had to do with hiding lack of strong song structures/vocals/performance.

Panning and stereo separation are things of the past.
