Producers are usually wrong. They are more concerned with making the album accessible to consumers than fulfilling the artistic aspirations of the musician. Which I think is what a producers job should be.

But sometimes producers have the right idea. Nevermind is one of my favorite albums, and I love Butch Vigs production even though I know that Cobain hated it and wanted to produce a lo-fi, muddy sounding record like all the Indie stuff around that time.

It was the 60s, the summer of love, everyone was high. They would dance to virtually everything.
