Anyone who thinks it’s a crappy mix – it’s purposeful. He’s doing that so
he kills the first deck and all you hear is the second deck, that way you
can hear the different choruses as one ends, and the other begins.

KarlBonner1982 says:

Great information but I really don’t like to think of songs in terms of
“8-counts.” That’s probably because I grew up musical and thinking in
4-count measures.
