Yeah, I know Ross.

This constant chase of making everything sound loud and robbing it from dynamic range is highly annoying and way too many recordings suffer from it these days. The whole problem is commonly called "The loudness war". I'm surprised you haven't heard the expression.

The latest Whitesnake recordings are just a few examples of this problem, but very good examples. Horrible mastering.
