Thanks a lot Danny. That's really interesting. For me born and raised really appreciating top quality sound production, this technique in the most part really does grate on me. It's that thick thud from the drums etc that almost stops the music in its tracks.

It is sad because when I hear music mixed for best quality rather than absolute volume, the results are epic..
