The Half-Assed is the enemy of the good

Sometimes it isn’t just the perfect that’s the enemy of the good.

I’ve been sending out a few emails about the new album and thus, listening to the tunes again. There’s moments in I Gave Up where it sounds like the cajon and guitars come out of sync. I’m not sure if this is actually the case or if it’s an audio illusion caused by the guitars’ slight panning and my strumming differently.

After I mixed the songs, I listened over and over and decided it was just in headphones that the out-of-syncness bothered me. But a week later, with fresh ears, I’m pretty annoyed with it. So I’m going to try to remix the tune tonight.
