I heard the clicks on the mp3 sample myself. (1:35 onwards)
Mastering Engineer to Glitch dude:
'Sorry mate, this mix is shot, there are clicks all over the place, not to mention the distortion and the hiss too'
'Thats how its meant to sound !'
I feel that with the required level of experience, the artist can do a perfectly good job on mastering their own material. A good ear and the
availability of affordable software tools are the combination to make this the case. In fact, being able to go back to the original multi-track session to fix problematic sounds in a composition can be advantageous - as opposed to working with a finished mix. Obviously mastering is a process as opposed to a creative aspect involved in the releasing of work, but the words ALWAYS and NEVER still need to looked at and questioned rather than simply accepted.
