I've been reading a lot about music and how most albums that come out these days are way louder than albums that were released over ten years ago. This essentially causes the albums to sound like crap. I was wondering, is this always the case? I just bought a bunch of remastered CD's and many of them are loud as hell compared to some of my old CDs. The CD's sound good to me but I can't compare them to other versions of the CDs so I don't know if I'm getting the best version.
So what I'm asking you is....... Does loud always sound bad?
