If sound quality is a deal breaker, I would save oneself the money and aggravation. The compression dread raised my curiosity, so I checked out the first track Convinced of the Hex
. The sound was typical of a major label pop release: shrill highs, no sense of space, dirty, etc..etc... On the basest level, this sucker is loud! My volume was at a setting reserved for the fewest albums, such as At War With the Mystics
Here is the obligatory Audacity screenshot (sorry it was done in haste):
Not very pretty, and the waveforms of the other songs I checked, were similar, although I didn't listen to them.
On the bright side, I dug the song, which is a nice marching number with little sharp guitar stabs, trailed by moody electric piano.
