this is not only your opinion. I also appreciate Jon's elaborate work very much. Banana Skin produced by Chris on his own was objective downgrade after Auberge, Jon's masterpiece, production-wise. Even the albums co-produced by Chris and Jon (Strangers, RtH) sound not so terrific as New Light, Auberge and even Chris Rea 1982 album, solely produced by Kelly. I can understand Chris's position - he wants his music sound closer to how he initially intended it to be, more of a live record. New Light, being almost all one-take recording, lost its live perception in post-production, while Banana kept it, having rather asquethic arrangement, but who knows how much greater Nothing to Feat could sound with real strings and without drum machines...
