Your personal favourite mixes you've done?

Hi Jens,

I've been observing your work and the evolution of some of your aesthetic preferences as a mix engineer for a long time now, and I was wondering what you consider to be your own mixes that you're most proud of and think showcase your best work.

Sort of if you were someone else and you were thinking of throwing in 3 - 5 of your favourite Jens Bogren mixes, if you will. I do have such a reference folder of my own, and it features 3 - 5 of your mixes, but I'm really intrigued by how you see it.

Hey man, wow that's such a hard question. I usually have an idea of how I think some of my mixes are sounding. However, if I listen back that's not always correct. But I rarely listen back.

If I have to choose or take a guess at my sonic preferences, then perhaps it would be something like (albums):
Exhorder - Mourn the Southern Sky
Witchcraft: Legend
Mokoma: Ihmissokkelo
Septic Flesh: Codex Omega
Katatonia: Fall of Hearts
Sepultura: Quadra

Random internal order. And there are many others that have a special place in my heart, like Amorphis, Opeth, Kreator, Soilwork to name a few. So that's why it's hard or impossible for me to judge this.

Thank you for narrowing it down anyway. I have to say, Quadra and Codex Omega stand as two of my favourites too, and there are a couple of albums you've named that I'm actually not familiar with. I know what I'm going to be listening to tomorrow!

On a related note, I was hoping to see one of the Leprous albums you've mixed in that list. Malina is one of the most special and beautiful sounding albums I've ever heard.
