Death by Clipping,
This review is from: Death Magnetic (Audio CD)Simply the worst production on any album I've heard. 10x worse than ...ajfa. Hugely ironic given the band's anti-piracy ranting. When I buy a cd I want to stick it in my hifi, turn it up, and enjoy it. Fat chance with this. Turning it up is out of the question. Better to get a low quality version where the clipping is less in your face.
4* for the music - it's pretty good although perhaps a little boring in places, but since I can't bear to listen to it that's not much good. On the odd occasion I persuade myself to give it another go it only takes me a few minutes before I simply can't stand to listen to it any more. God only knows what they thought it sounded like. It's pretty clear to me at this point that nobody in the band has any hearing left.
