That is great. Congratulations for joining a blog many of us check out. You guys have helped educate me about this issue. I think the first I remember reading about a "loud" album was Death Magnetic. It was too loud. What the hell does that mean?!
When I first heard loud, I was like, "what do you mean loud? Metal is supposed to be loud, and isn't loud about me turning a nob on my equipment.......anything can be soft or loud depending on how loud I fxxxxxg listen to it...".
but now I'm starting to get it-emphasizing certain sounds, sacrificing the range of sounds, etc. Thanks for cluing me in.
I just bought Zeppelin's remastered compilation Mothership. I compared it to older CDs I have (some 90's remasters, some studio CDs-Houses of the Holy) and it sounds a lot better to me. But, after reading the article in the AMG post I wonder-if it's just louder and my ears initially perceive it to be better. All I can say, to my ears over speakers and HP's, it sounds more spacious, open and clearer. My older recordings almost have a background noise-they sound muddy in comparison.
