I’m sure many of you (at least, those of you who are interested at all) have heard the new album by now, and a lot have not been happy with the sound quality…specifically the way the mix has been amped up increase the loudness at lower volume levels, at the expense of loss of dynamic range, going so far as to cause distortion and clipping.
Well, it’s come to light that the version of the album used for the Guitar Hero III game was, for some reason, not compressed like the retail album.
A comparison of the wave forms between songs on both versions of the album pretty much makes the difference very obvious…(Top one is from the game, the bottom is from the retail CD).
Well, the version from the game has obviously been ripped and floated around the web. I’ve heard both versions, and can confirm that there’s definitely a difference in sound quality (and I didn’t even realize how bad the retail CD sounded until I heard the tracks from GHIII).
I know several people have said that the shitty sound quality have pretty much prevented them from enjoying the album which they otherwise might have liked. I would highly recommend checking out the GHIII version, as the difference is pretty dramatic.
