I was just listening to this great album with a high volume and noticed something I hadn't noticed before. Roger's voice is kinda in front of the music. Hope you'll understand what I mean. You'll notice this especially on Tonight. It seems like Roger is standing in your room and singing to you. Great way to mix the tracks!


Not those are losers who fall, but those who don't stand up.

Yes, I agree.

It seems to be a sort of a trend these days and very noticeable on many albums (Bowie and Elton John etc.)

But listening back to the 70s albums, I prefer the lead vocal to be more in the background than right in the face which seems to be todays style of doing it. But these things are a matter of taste anyway...

Yes, I understand
The same thing is with Phil Collins' song "Thru the Walls". It's like he is singing right next to you
