I mean we talked about that 13 years ago a lot actually

Ok, maybe we can talk about it again... Kinda ruins the experience.

I mostly listened to Ampu on a car stereo that would drop out the left channel periodically and a poorly-installed subwoofer, so I have no idea what it's supposed to sound like.

It's not THAT bad.  Yes the drums are mixed too low and it's pretty light on bass, but in Omar's earlier mixing days he often was very sparse with the low end.  Some EQing on your end can help balance that out.  Octa is his best mixed album despite it being the weakest Volta record.

I dont think any tmv records sound particularly good. Few of Omar's solo records do either

Mix/Master are not areas of specialty by any means for me, but for what it is worth Octa and Deloused sound the most decent and presentable.  Frances isn't bad, but is pretty anemic on the low end and we can't forget all the clipping issues as well.  Amp has a shit drum mix and also lacks bass.  Bedlam I don't mind because it serves the album well enough, but it is LOUD as all heck.  Noct.....oh lord, compressed low quality demos mixed to hell and back.

Bedlam is so flat. It also does this weird thing where no matter how loud I spin it, after a while it seems quiet and muffled. OI'm sure there's a scientific word for that phenomenon.

I love how de loused and Frances the mute sound, i think they sound crystalline clear. I don´t really know what kind of sound they had in mind for this album, maybe what ended up being realeased, maybe not. Always had that doubt.

De-loused is without a doubt the best. I don't any Volta albums sound bad by any stretch of the imagination though.

Ya I'm by no means an expert, but I agree that Octa + Deloused are the best. I think Deloused is a little bit too loud, I often feel like I need to rest my ears after listening to it.

If Noct didn't sound the way it does, I'm sure many more TMV fans would appreciate how good it is. I'm just not sure how you can get that final master back and think "yep, that's how we wanted this to sound!"

They rushed the mixing. But Omar did say he wanted the mix to sound like a dub record. There are moments during the record where I get what he means.

Octahedron and Frances sound the best to me. I don’t have a problem with the low drums on Amp though.
