"If he thinks the reason the song is good is that he put a timpani on it, he can kiss my ass." - Steve Albini

I'm really looking forward to reading Perfecting Sound Forever: An Aural History of Recorded Music.

Currently trying to wrap my head around this quote from the book: "Presence implies capturing everything. Today, we try to capture as little as possible while fostering the illusion of everything. We don't want everything. We want just enough."
