About this album

The Loud Wars

It’s an uber-nerdy reference to the phenomenon of albums getting louder and louder but losing actual quality in the process. In the digital realm that CDs exist in, there’s an actual physical threshold for how loud things can be, so in the mastering stage of album making, people have been overcompressing music in order to make it APPEAR louder. The result is a lack of dynamic range and records that are fatiguing to your ear after a while.

    "If You Don't Want to Know"? What? Anyway, this album is really something, still waiting for my copy to get to my house.
