Well, you could say that about the listeners too based on some of the comments above, especially concerning the extremely squashed 2007 Mothership
I would hope he goes against the trend and gives them back some of the dynamics they had in the beginning. They are likely based on the iTunes remasters.
For anyone interested, there are some high rez transfers around the web of the first 5 records, transferred from commercial analog tape reels, and sounding really good. Look for something like below ...
Funny, Ive listened to Mothership many many times and except for it being a handful of dB louder than the originals (not nearly as bad as many other "loudness war victims"), I hear no evidence of "extremely squashed" compression. Have you actually listened to it or are you simply looking at a spectrum in Audacity?
