It was produced seemingly to only sound good when played unspeakably loud
all forms of electronica and metal. Actually, all records need to be loud.
which are over-compressed would sound horrible when turned up, as the clipping would be more noticeable?
Which is why 65days last album is a correct answer to make, it had sod-all compression
Loud music ftw
are full of it.
Any metal or heavier stuff in particular needs to be otherwise it tends to sound weak.
The Destruction Of Small Ideas has to be played very loud, then it's amazing, people complaining that it's quiet doesn't really make sense.
That's what I'm guessing wut is for.
but right now, Catamaran by bear vs shark.
i think my neighbours might complain soon.
I was going to say Young Team, but this covers it.
Dial 'M' for motherfucker only makes sense this way
Most Albini produced records absolutely terrific when cranked. The intro from Bone Machine springs to mind.
but it is nice to have the choice of playing something loud or quiet - these days it seems that most new records are so fucking loud you're robbed of that choice .
Stabbed in the Face by Wolf Eyes.
but anything with a deep, sludgy bass sound is nowhere near as effective when played at lower volumes. Stuff like Kyuss and Sunn o))) needs to be played loud so you can physically feel the heaviness, so the warmness of the sound can envelop you
Coming from a completely different place, the Mark Hollis solo album needs to be played as loud as possible because it's probably the quietest and most intimate record ever made. The whole thing is so reliant on dynamism and mood, with the silence playing as important a role as the instruments, and with Hollis' cracked, almost weeping voice occasionally blasting out with the most beautiful, powerful, soaring tone i've ever experienced. Incredible album
they go from being the most boring band in the world to one full of fist pumping YELL OUT LOUD moments. Case and point Killing In The Name Of in clubs is AMAZING, even after all these years.
in theory maybe really slow, sad, quiet things but they all sound better loud as well.
even says "this record is intended to be played at high volume" on the cd sleeve.
boxer sounded better quieter and more subtle
the shit recording/production manages to disapear when its loud.
Part Chimp, espescially "New Cross" and Mondo Dell'Orrore by Geisha
