I heard that Ted was actually not responsible for that Metallica album. I feel sorry about it...

I'm curious why I do feel CLA mix is not over compressed, so I checked a few records here. Many of them are too much compressed obviously, but even so, they sound absolutely fine for me. DR is about 6-9dB, which is normal for pop music today.

Anyway, we can check DR chart at loudness-war.info. For example, Bruce Springsteen's 2012 album, Wrecking Ball, the dynamic range of CLA track is the same as the other mixing engineers on the same album. Also you can look at the vinyl version's DR of the same album, they are around 11dB, which is pretty healthy, so we can see that over compression was obviously done at digital mastering stage. We can't achieve 5dB dynamic range with analog equipments anyway, and CLA does not use digital compression at his 2 bus as far as I know. I think he uses Focusrite Red comp.

Bruce Springsteen 11dB

American Idiot (Edition Studio Masters) 9-10dB
