It's just hard for me to digest bad production: it interferes with my ability to enjoy the music.
I totally agree. I don't think I would like it anyway, but I won't even give stuff like "Kill Em All" another chance anymore, simply because I don't want to spend the time listening to something that sounds like that.

It's also why I haven't listened to either of the last two Baroness albums since the last one came out, even though they're really good. It isn't worth it.
I might feel differently if I grew up listening to awful production, but I didn't really start listening to music actively until ~1992, by which time almost everything new had at least reasonable production quality. I wasn't struggling to find music that I both liked and could tolerate sound-wise, which meant I had no reason to climb that particular hill. Why should I listen to Testament recording through a tin can and a string when I could listen to Megadeth or Maiden?

"You bandits don't just die quickly, I mean, example: This one guy in New Haven, cities burning, people dying left and right, yada yada yada, and this jackhole rushes me with a spoon. A frickin' spoon. And I'm just, dying laughing right? So I just scoop out his eyeballs with it and his kids are like, 'waaah', he can't see where he's going, bumping into stuff, maybe you just had to be there. Anyway, the moral is, you're a total bitch." - Handsome Jack
