1.0 out of 5 stars The music is fine but the CD sounds awful (max. loudness and no dynamics left), 4 Sept. 2011
This review is from: I'm With You (Audio CD)
Musically, I think this is a fine album. I wish I could enjoy listening to it, but unfortunately the CD was mastered so loud that it just sounds dreadful. I don't know what they are thinking, but I do have a volume knob on my stereo where I can adjust the listening level. This CD needs to listened to at a very low volume setting since otherwise my ears are hurting after only a few minutes. This CD is even worse sounding than "Californication", which is well known for its atrocious mastering.

Maybe the upcoming vinyl version will be better, we'll have to see.

Spot on - it really distorts for me, the mastering is atrocious. Shame, as like you say, I was pleasantly surprised how good the album is musically - but this really does spoil it.

Agreed; excellent album but CD mastered way too loud.

must be for folks who listen through their mobiles. Arrgh, clipping and distortion, as Ian Paice once said (almost) I want everything as loud as everything else.
What is wrong with modern bands who let this crap sounding stuff out. The Black Country communion album was like this. I think Oasis started it

Probably was Oasis although I think they did it to mask the fact that they were a bit rubbish. These days it's just done as a matter of course because nobody in the music industry actually understands (or cares) how music should sound. This is not it.
Pathetic effort - you would think they'd have learnt from the bad publicity of previous releases. Shows how downright arrogant these a-holes are.
