That’s right, Fluff (AKA Ryan Bruce) recently put out this Top 10 List of Metal Albums With Terrible Guitar Tones! This might be an uncomfortable topic, but it’s an important one that is a good exercise in critiquing albums that we might think are flawless. Of course, bad guitar tone is but one facet of many when it comes to what makes a piece of art “good”, and often times a distinctive tone can ultimately be more important than a good one.
What do you think? Did any of your favorite albums make the cut?
