    I guess the answer to the question is "whoever told Eddie and Dave what they wanted to hear the most".

    I am wondering which VHlinks member wrote that !!!
    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

    The way a producer "leads" a band through production depends on many different things and the job is not always the same for every band and every album. Some bands need a den-mother because they are young and inexperienced, and the record company is pulling the strings and are the last word on what gets on the record. Some bands have a lot of experience/control and they just need another voice in the studio, but the band is the last word. Sometimes bands try to be their own producer which most of the time doesn't work out well since they produce great art but awful sales.

    Well that's certainly the truth! I'm sure there are other lesser known examples, but the best example I can think of where a member of the band was the producer and it worked was Jimmy Page / Led Zeppelin. His years of studio session work really paid off in that regard. If Ed let go of the reins a bit on this album (it is looking that way overall) and allowed the producers to do their job we should get a solid album.

    You could see the decline start with Skyscraper.
