Interesting article on the new Metallica album. I would be curious to hear our own experts weigh in. The article talks about how "some fans are bitterly disappointed: not by the songs or the performance, but the volume. It's so loud, they say, you can't hear the details of the music." When they say to loud they are not talking about sheer volume but more the volumes affect on dynamic range and how because they amp up the volume dynamic range is lost. Apparently one of the engineers that helped cut edit the album is a little disappointed by this as well.
Have any of you die hards noticed this at all while listening to the album?
