I do like that album a lot (and I love to think of ‘noise purists’ frothing at the gills every time I put it on :slight_smile: )


#43

I dont think noise purists really care tbh man


#44

I can think of plenty of counterexamples to this.

For example, Nickelback.


#45

On the assumption that I’m listening to things that I like…


#46

How bout in the song title?


#47

Head on the Door


#48

I’ve read that it’s to get it sounding closer to the original mix before Scott Litt did his stuff

I leave the bass and treble flat. I’ve never bothered with graphic equalisers, too much hard work.

#50

I feel every record you alive you , Always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS! must turn on the volume! Don’t you agree?


#51

How about in the song title?


#52

Wasnt Destruction of Small Ideas the album 65dos purposefully made a production that wasnt compressed much and had a wider dynamic range thus needing to be played louder then most albums post loudness war?

Really sensible to put it on. Because it will sound quite unless you do


#53

I couldn’t possibly begin to know how to agree with this.


#54

Rocket From The Crypt’s Cut Carefully and Play Loud EP, (this became the actual name of the EP due to it being a basic instruction on how to get at the vinyl!)


#55

Skimmed the thread, don’t THINK this has been covered yet, but…

Which albums (apart from 65dos) could do with a PLEASE PLAY LOUD instruction?

Because that new Alice Coltrane reissue sounded pretty insubstantial before I absolutely blasted it out.
