The modern cd mastering process ruins another album.
on 18 June 2007
after listening to the cd just once i feel compelled to write a rant somewhere. this is good new album, but i just cant get past the awful sound quality.
this overcompressing of the music on modern cds is beginning to annoy the hell out of me. im fed up of buying new cds and having to hear digital distortion which im damn sure the artist never intended to be there.
the new white stripes album sounds bloody awful for a band that pride themselves on using only quality old analogue gear.
i personally think this is a huge issue and needs to be petitioned against somehow.
whats the point in me spending money on quality hifi gear if every new recording is inherently ruined before i purchase it.
the record companys once again f us in the a.
