There *is* no problem.
CDs have a pretty huge dynamic range (difference between the softest and loudest sounds), of about 96dB.
Good recordings will have a dynamic range of abount 15-20dB atleast, because then you can feel soft and loud sounds well. Its a part of any musical performance.
This means you'll have to turn up the volume a bit.
Modern music is ruined by the plague of low dynamic range. All sounds are loud. You don't need to turn the volume up as much, but it destroys the organic nature of music. It can work well for electronic music, but for recorded music its not good.
So I guess this album has a higher dynamic range, thats all.
