Don't blame the engineers, they usually do the best they can, it's mostly down to musicians, producers and record company execs...

pinkmouse,
if ever someone invents a digitally programmable rifle sight the word "executive", record company or anything, should be hardwired in.

What cd?
I was listening to Ray Charles recent duets disk and thinking that they did a great job with the sound quality but on some songs I easily hear digital clipping.
I guess from studio to production you only need one a**hole to ruin things.

David Bowie - BBC Radio Theater London 2000

Unfortunately many more examples are out there.
Here's a screenshot of the actual clipping. Note that clipping occurs just below 0dBFS. This album has thus been hard limited to the maximum.
