DRYWALL tapeing and mudding

In the kitchen of my house a very poor job was done in the kitchen. The tape is very visible and the mud is caked a lot and rough.
I am planning to re-do it and wondering if I can just take it back..tear off the tape and sand the bad mud away, or do I need to plan on replacing the drywall?

Remove the old tape, scrape and sand the old mud off, screw the sheetrock securely, if necessary, and start over with new taping and mud.
Good Luck!

That's an interesting situation. Too much mud, plus you can see the tape? I could never undersatnd why, but that is so completely opposite of what the finished product should look like, one might suspect they did it intentionally. Go figure.
