    Mixerman is a recording engineer working with a famous producer on the debut album of an unknown band with a giant recording budget. Mixerman is supposed to be writing about recording techniques, but somehow, through that prism, he has hit upon a gripping story. Like all great narratives, Mixerman's diary has many anti-heroes for whom we, the readers, can have nothing but contempt. The band consists of the four most dislikable human beings you can imagine.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Daily Adventures of Mixerman the most enjoyable?

    This is more than an audio book. It is almost like an audio play. Since it is based on a diary, most of it is read by MM in his own voice, but occasionally there are other voices playing the cast of characters involved. While it is a must for anyone who's ever made a record or been involved in a label, It is enjoyable to anyone who's interested in major label record making and the insanity that goes on behind the scenes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Daily Adventures of Mixerman?

    When Cotton has his accident or....don't want to spoil anything.


    What does Mixerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The cast of characters are played by a slew of recording engineers and producers. There are added sound effects, plus music. You have to bear in mind that this was made by a top record maker. So the audio is impeccable and creative.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is pretty long.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd already read the book, but this was still worth the listen. Try to listen on a good stereo or set of headphones, and get the high quality version!
