I'm not going to change my mind. I listened, I analysed, and I posted why I think that mix is bad, and I also posted a number of things you could do to fix it, first among which is to high pass the guitars and get a proper bass sound, just like the vast majority of rock production you will ever hear. They're not doing it because they can do without it, they're doing it because its better.
I hear ya. I really do have a lot to learn when it comes to recording, and I appreciate the constructive insight. I'll take your suggestions, and see what I can do. I've been recording for years, but never really looked into proper ways to tweak db's and their usage, among other things. This could be a blessing for me. Much obliged.

Bass definitely thickens up the sound and fills out the sonic scape. I think there are genres in which the bass plays a minimal and arguably optional role, but I don't think I've heard a single song where bass wouldn't be a welcome addition.

Only song I can think of right now without bass: Sister Ray by The Velvet Underground. Also all or most of the Doors songs had the bass parts played on keyboard.

One of Tom Jones's recent albums has a track with his voice, electric guitar and some percussion. No bass guitar. I think it is John Lee Hooker's Burning Hell on Praise and Blame.
