          That vid really put it into perspective. Nevermind that new, "pop" music is all garbage anyway, regardless of its dynamic range.

            I doubt the class of music I listen to is going to be mastered in this way.

              I saw this one a couple years ago. I find it accurate, and a little more obvious than the posted demo video:

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v6ML2DsBfA

              In case you've seen this, it's Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as originally recorded, compared to how it would sound with modern mastering. IMO, they did not embellish the compression/limiting to make a point. It sounds entirely reasonable to me.

              In comparison, the three Thriller releases don't sound too bad. Rock really receives the brunt of overdone limiting. I guess it's more "aggro". egch. Ruined the genre for me.

              There's a related video on YouTube (at least when I watched it) where Deadmau5 talks about how he feels dance music has been wrecked by poor engineering. It's refreshing to see someone still cares, but I've always found his stuff as heavy on compression triggered by the kick. (The boom-wah-boom-wah-boom-wah sound.) That's just as bad, IMO. Sounds like someone is trying to turn their undersized club PA up to 11, which in all seriousness is probably the inspiration for the sound...
