Music recordings these days are becoming entirely TOO LOUD. Peter Mew, senior mastering engineer at Abbey Road studios:
â€œRecord companies are competing in an arms race to make their album sound the â€˜loudestâ€™. The quieter parts are becoming louder and the loudest parts are just becoming a buzz.â€ Mr Mew, who joined Abbey Road in 1965 and mastered David Bowieâ€™s classic 1970s albums, warned that modern albums now induced nausea.
