What you have to realize is that that one sounds exactly as the band intended, and therefore cannot be considered bad sound. They were intimately involved with the recording/mastering process, as described in their book. (Of course, this applies to all of their recent CDs.)

It certainly does. One of the best sounding CDs I own.

Do you actually own the demo tape? I just found a copy of it offline.

I just remembered that all of The Strokes CDs sound appalling.

"Live at Kelvin Hall" - The Kinks

I bought this album with LP, and was surprised for a poor sound.
It doesn't change now.

"Live at Leeds" of The WHO was also the worst before.
However, the sound has improved to "Live at Leeds" - The who.

^^These two albums right here are the definition of the loudness war.

This is a waveform of the CD release (top) and the LP release (bottom)http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...h_waveform.png
x2 on the chili peppers.

Californication is just terrible. I havn't heard it since I got good headphones - really can't listen to it.

Such a great album, but terrible recording...

I always used to wonder why I would get bored with them. Now I know. I mean, it's pretty good music, but the SQ is TERRIBLE! I can't listen to an entire chili peps song.

Completely agree. Sounds bad on LP as well.

Interestingly, I was listening to that one just last night.
I didn't notice clipping, but it was loud all the way through with no dynamics at all.
Too bad, because I agree that the content is great.

Queensryche, Iron Maiden and Nirvana all got hit by the brickwall remaster bat.
