I have several LPs which I also have on CD. There is just something nice about watching an LP spin around as you listen.

But to stay on topic: Most of these sound pretty much identical when comparing one to the other. But then, non of them are "remastered".

Also, I have no Heavy Metal LPs or CDs. I think most of the "over compression" techniques are genre related. I don't see it a problem with jazz or country.

Here is a review of Wailin Jennys "Firecracker" taken from Amazon UK:



"This is the loudest CD in my entire collection - louder even than Dance & Techno CDs intended for use in clubs! Much too loud in fact - the CD has been massively compressed - presumably as part of the mastering process - giving it an airless, in-your-face sound with no space at all for the excellent music to breathe, dynamic range has been totally squashed, a sound completely unsuited to this type of music.
I love 40 days, with its really relaxed, engaging sound, great playing and songs, but this CD is unlistenable for me.
Very disappointed..."

Wailin' Jennys. They're a female folk trio. Not some crusty old country coot.
