Reviews and Commentaries for the Music of Michael McDonald

Sonic Grade: F

The MoFi pressing of this album is a complete disaster — it’s even fatter, muddier and more compressed than the standard domestic copy, as improbable as that may seem.

It was mastered by Jack Hunt, a man we know to be responsible for some of the thickest, dullest, deadest MoFi recuts throughout their shameful catalog.

With mastering credits on this album, Gerry Rafferty (058) and Blondie (050), you have to wonder how this guy kept getting work.
