I've only been listening through bandcamp but really can't find anything to complain about with the mix. The two points I have seen here are "guitars are too loud" and "vocals are too low" but I do not find this to be the case for two reasons: 1. they're not and 2. I seem to be in the minority of music listeners who mostly takes the music released by "serious" bands as "as is" and accept that it is intended to be this way. It is unlikely that La Dispute have released this in a state that they didn't believe was how the music was intended to be experienced. I refuse to project my expectations or tastes onto the music someone else creates; life is too short to be that asshole.
To contradict myself though, I do think the cover art is lifeless (in deep conflict with the music on the album). I am curious on your thoughts on the music and production when you finally get around to listening though.
Anyway, anyone hear anything about a tour press yet?
