There are some tracks that sound too good to be mixed by Wallin, "The Second Biggest Apes I've Seen This Month" being a prime example. I just wish Wallin could be consistent in his work.

I think he is pretty consistent - consistently bad. The sooner he stop mixing music, the better for everyone else. His muddy mix is consistently the worst part of all of Giacchino's scores, and many of them easily lose a star simply because of the awful mix. Super 8 and MI: Ghost Protocol suffer the worst, but It's noticeable in everything he does... lately. His earlier work didn't suffer the same problems. I really wonder if his hearing is just failing him. It's certainly failing the rest of us.

I agree. Though I'm really impressed by his work on "John Carter." I guess it just depends on where the score is recorded. His work on the third Indiana Jones score was lackluster to me, and that was back in 1989. "The Good Son" was okay too but I think it had artificial reverb added to it. I've been tinkering with reverb in Wavepad and I can hear the same artificial reverb in that score.

But, yeah, "John Carter" sounds impressive in terms of mixing.
