Comment A textbook example of the Loudness Wars. Whoever did the mastering obviously did a terrible job. There's clipping all over this record. It's especially apparent in In Love With Useless, where almost half of the song is shown to be clipped. The fact that with it being DR2 makes it as bad as any song in Californication, Death Magnetic, or Raw Power doesn't help either. If you go to Youtube, there are KEXP Live videos of Oh I'm a Wrecker, In Love With Useless, Crushin', and The Body, It Bends which all sound MUCH better than these studio versions. Listen to those instead. foobar2000 1.3.2 / Dynamic Range Meter 1.1.1 log date: 2014-08-23 19:31:24 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Analyzed: A Sunny Day in Glasgow / Sea When Absent -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR Peak RMS Duration Track -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR5 over -6.38 dB 4:17 01-Bye Bye, Big Ocean (The End) DR2 over -4.72 dB 5:07 02-In Love with Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing) DR6 over -8.33 dB 4:43 03-Crushin' DR6 over -7.91 dB 4:07 04-MTLOV (Minor Keys) DR5 over -6.88 dB 5:04 05-The Things They Do to Me DR5 over -8.79 dB 5:07 06-Boys Turn Into Girls (Initiation Rites) DR6 over -8.52 dB 5:05 07-Never Nothing (It's Alright [It's Ok]) DR6 over -8.60 dB 1:35 08-Double Dutch DR6 over -8.38 dB 3:44 09-The Body, It Bends (ペルセポネが帰ってきた!)
