My Bloody Valentine: 'Loveless' sound quality? - Page 4

post #46 of 47

I could listen to Loveless on a tapedeck with ibuds and I'd enjoy it. The remaster does nothing for me.

When people talk about remastering this, I think they are really talking about 'remixing it'.

 

I have both the CD and the vinyl and they sound similar. The sound is very deliberate. I have a strong feeling that the master tape sounds just the same.

 

If you look at the CD in Audacity, it's actually slightly amusing because the waveform never comes close to -0dB. It's quieter than it needs to be, as if the mastering engineer was deliberately making a statement of 'Hey, it ain't my fault...that's what they gave me'. The waveform is thick and compressed--it is what it is. It demonstrably does not need remastered, having been competently mastered to start with.

 

If some people have issues with the mixing decisions, I can understand that I guess, but I think recording artists have to be given prerogative. A remix would be a derivative work. I'm not against the concept, but the album should not be viewed as flawed.
