It seems that this guy has a bad reputaion when it comes to remastering classic rock albums. Critics complain how he gets rid of the "noise floor" in recordings. Apparently that is a bad thing. Does anyone else feel the same way?

It is a bad thing when these people with too much access to too much gear put the music through filters and suck the life out of it.

It should be so simple. Calibrate and align the tape heads, let the tape pass unaltered and put that onto a compact disc.

But no, they have to fiddle with it, compress the hell out of it to make it "louder", remove "offending" tape hiss, and make it sound like some audio science experiment gone bad.

Who needs it?

I find some of these mastering engineers are like office "project managers" who have itchy fingers and just have to stick them in and fiddle with things that don't need fiddling with.
