Hummingbird Heartbeat - Bad Mixing? Oct. 11th, 2012 @ 09:45 AM Reply

So I listed to Katy Perry's latest track on my monitors, and it sounded fine. Then I listened to it with my headphones (which make everything sound worse).

Here is the track:

As it gets into the song, am I the only one noticing supposed clicks, or off-beat drums? Mainly with the snare at times. Especially at 2:56 (iTunes commercial release).

Not in that video you linked: it's on the beat, it's just emphasizing the first beat as well.

It didn't sound poorly mixed on my headphones: maybe it just sounds terrible because it's bland and generic pop music?
