Wow... Steve Hoffman demonstrates why mastering too loud RUINS the sound of CDs... using Figure of Eight as an example!

i'm impressed. those musicians and producers actually do know what they are doing after all? must be a method to their madness, huh?

Also note--

That's Steve Hoffman, the ONLY person most people want to be in charge of remastering the Beatles.

He is a huge Beatle/Macca (as you can tell) fan and would treat the recordings with utmost care and respect.

Probem is that when you listen to songs that are mastered so loud (and they are nowadays) and there is one song between that is not mastered loud, that one song will stand out and be experienced as poorly mastered because of its low sound level.
