Its true. I am currently listening to Marquee Moon for the first time in a while. That's some vicious shit.
I MEANT LOUD!!
fucking words eh?
People who don't GET the knife need to listen to silent shout turned up high.
the sonics on any record are just so much more impressive and affecting. this is why it annoys me to have to play music relatively quietly through headphones at work.
you need to hear that stuff reverberating and echoing and the whole thingamajig.
i'm not drunk.
I adore Tindersticks. I like them ponderously quiet.
To Be Played At Maximum Volume - I took that to mean all records.

It's just a different experience.
It also depends on if it is 'live' musicians who record their music for distribution or those who record music and try to create a performance to promote it.
But it actually kinda works for loud too.
Can you imagine the hell that'd be, if you had to listen to Toto at maximum volume?
than at 'shop background music/dentists chair level'
umm.. abandon reply?
full volume, is pretty much better than anything ever.
horrible over the course of an album
but I love sitting in the dark, sipping an alcholic beverage and listening to music at such a low level that you really have to strain your ears and concentrate.
This, for me, intensifies the experience the same as making the walls reverberate.
I'm currently listening to the Tool-like stylings of Another Dead Hero, and that stuff demands to be played loud.
Low, on the other hand don't.
...surely has to listened to loud? and reverand green sounds ace loud!
Although I wish my neighbours would appreciate it as much as I do.
