Re: Loudness wars

The problem is actually selection bias.

Mainstream/commercial recordings are aimed at idiots. I lack the tolerance to listen to whats offered on the radio these days.

Independent/Muso releases are more likely to sound the way the performers intended - for some genres that will be loud and flat, but in that case its supposed to be that way.

If you want quality, exercise discrimination, and avoid the smelly masses.

Its hipster terrritory but they will never be as uncool as me, no matter how hard they try.
