CommentDo you remember this previous entry (Boulevard Des Hits Vol. 17 - link: http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/114913)? Well my friends, only one volume later, just one!! Trends and habits completely changed within the same compilation. Starting from this volume, 0dBFS is now reached very often but not only that. Quieter songs are now pushed up in order to be as loud as the loudest ones! Basically, Boulevard Des Hits finished its transition into the wonderful word of loudness and volume pushing wars with this volume 18. If you don't believe me, the example of Haddaway's song, I Miss You (track 5 here) is striking. On this record, the whole song hits 0dB. Now try to compare with the original Maxi-CD from 1993 (you have it physically, or grab a lossless rip) and you'll be surprised.
