It was mixed and mastered by famed engineer Bob St. John (Extreme, Duran Duran, Collective Soul).    

Needle Down continued the Streetlight Circus tradition of in-your-face hard rock, mixing an old school vibe with a modern approach to songwriting. The album, like the band’s previous releases, is full of high-energy, melodic rock songs displaying the band’s penchant for solid musicianship, soaring vocals and memorable hooks.
