Well, I missed it! But this is very important. I just got the new Ellie Goulding and Marina and the Diamonds CDs, and they’re distorted to make them sound loud. Such a shame. It gets annoying, I can never find a comfortable level to listen to this music at. It’s fine in the noisy environment of the car, but on an iPod or home hi-fi it gets irritating.
Recently I mastered The Butterfly Graveyard, and they were AOK with not distorting it. It sounds like a well done CD from the mid nineties. So there is hope!
