For one - the tonal sub textures are more subtle and not in your face.
Two - it's not loud, so you'll actually have to turn up the volume.
Three - it won't sound as good in your car or ipod.
Four - it sounds more natural and there is no distortion or clipping.

From what I gather by modern releases, people hate that stuff.
No we don't! Well at least not me.Anyway thanks for replying.

If you like veckatimest, yellow house is a must. I actually like it more that Veckatimest and the closer, Colorado, is one of my favorite tracks all time.

If only other sound engineers would not ruin music with loudness it would make our job of enjoying headphones much easier.

That sounds great. I wish that I had the skill and the time to remaster albums on my own.

I have heard his remaster, well samples of such. All I could say was WOW

I always seek out the best copies of any album in my collection of roughly 4700 albums.

Japanese usually are the key for less loudness, however sometimes it just doesn't cut it, or there is no direct japanese release.

Now, other semi-professional remasters are ok, but faulter in one area or the other. The samples I heard from LFF were only mp3's and DESTROYED the flac rips of my CD and the CD itself from my Denon SACD player or pc fed thru a Buffalo32s. I was totally impressed, and I wish he would start a website with his remasters, they are FANTASTIC! You are the man, LFF

Well, Well, Well..

 

Shields is out and is fantastic, a comfortably 9.1 from Pitchfork and pretty conservative in my opinin,

a bit more melancholic and more Radioheadish compared to Veckatimest, there's also a bit of Fleet Foxes, so I like it more,

 

People attach them to Animal Collective, but please just listen to "Yet Again", and "The Hunt", practically Radiohead songs (not the sh..t of the limbs ones..)

Damn shame about it being so compressed.

 

Unless you have the masters, there is no way of reversing that.mad.gif

The score for the 2010 Blue Valentine movie is very interesting, as is the movie. You should check out both.

Really digging Shields... but *******, can't people properly master albums anymore? ;_; Sound quality isn't necessarily hugely important to me (love me some early black metal), but an album like this deserves finer treatment than it got. Still, it really is a bit of a gem--it might wind up in my top 10 of 2012, if it keeps growing on me like it is.

Shields is a great album (even if Pitchfork likes it--heheh).  I don't get the Animal Collective or Radiohead comparison--Edward Droste reminds me a little of a male counterpart to Cat Power--at least the stripped down intimate vocals.  He's sort of a lo-fi artist, so I'm not sure I'd chalk the sound up to just a crappy mastering job.  My sound system seems to be improving in an inverse relationship to the quality of the recordings I like (I'm looking at you Dum Dum Girls new release).

I hate compressed albums, but strangely this one doesn`t bother me much, never except from them to be audiophile,

maybe Indie Rock is meant to be LoFi

 

as for Blue Valentine, is just another  **** movie, but after seeing Battleship, I really doubt about american taste and intelligence

See...I might buy that if they sounded more like the Ramones but they don't. Based on what I heard on Veckatimest and even Shield...they are far from Lo-Fi.

I think Veckatimest was the best album of 2009. Shields is a good listen, but not in the same league. Someone above mentioned Dirty pProjectors... Swing Lo Magellan was terrific.
