Yes, they sound flat. I know "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" and they sound just like that. The only song I can think of is not to me is “Don’t Come Around Here No More”. Even then it’s a similar sound with a bunch of effects on it.The Engineer and Producer had all the control at that time. Stan's drums were way more open sounding by the end of his tenure with the Heartbreakers.
Stan's drums sounded flat? Really? They made three records in the 70s - the third one, "Damn The Torpedos" released in 1979, incorporated a pretty revolutionary drum sound. Far from flat sound sounding IMO. "Even The Losers" and "Don't Do Me Like That" were on that record. Check out "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" and "The Waiting" from 1981 and tell me his drums sound flat, like he's playing on pillows.
