I couldn't disagree more.

Give the most amazing mix engineer a crappy song, poorly performed and recorded, and what do you get? Here's a hint, it ain't genius.

Nope, as easy as it is to disparage a "pop hit" (they're never "genius" IMO), they are almost always well done or else they don't hit.

Britney Spears or any one of a number of pop tarts - and I ain't talking about the pastry either

Nope!! While they might be marginal songs, they are actually expertly done given what they are.

Then Hip Hop or EDM... but you're a mix engineer and I'm a musician, who are we to disagree

I'd like to weigh in here. Oh wait, I can't! I think it is safe to say that I have never listened to a Bieber or Britney Spears song.
