Why do so many great albums sound so bad?

    For some reason, the worst sounding The Police album is their last, Synchronicity.

    Yeah, a bit too harsh, gritty and a bit too much treble for my taste.
    Unfortunate, 'cos I really like the music on that album.

    You might want to seek out the MFSL version of Syncronicity, it sounds great. The worst offender in the Police catalog to me is Zendyatta Mondatta, they cranked the compressors making the drums sound boxy and synthetic and it's sounds kind of phasey overall.

    I was surprised that Pieces of You by Jewel was nice sounding through my rig.  It's not bright like most pop albums and most of the tracks are soft sounding.

    Nothing to do with loudness war, but an album I really love and is one the greatest rock albums ever, although I wish it sounded better: Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, by Derek and The Dominos. Somebody can explain to me why this record has an overall crappy, muffled sound? [​IMG]
