Has the loudness war reached a new level of low?
I just got linked to No Doubt's new album "Push & Shove".
It does that alright. Listening to it, the mixing is terrible. The mix has been pushed so hard that even at low volumes, I can hear distortion when the mix gets heavy.
It is on Spotify too if anyone wants to give it a listen and tell me their thoughts.
Right from the get go, on Settle Down, at 0:45, distortion is apparant. It certainly isn't the bass style that is making it sound like that. It sounds... off, and is messing with the vocals too.
Can anyone give me a listen, and tell me its my ears? Not the mix that is terrible?
Or is this the future now?...
It's either that or Spotify has done a terribly bad job at ripping.
Its the worst I've heard anyway.
Sorry, I just needed to vent.
