No Hiding Place Indeed

Another comparison, another similar result. This time out it's a track from Elvis Costello & the Imposters' MOMOFUKU, which I posted about earlier. Once again, you can see that whoever mastered the CD managed to squeeze nearly all the dynamic range out of the music. No wonder Costello reportedly wanted to release this album exclusively on LP. This isn't as bad as some recent CDs, but it isn't particularly good either.

I'm only going to comment on these in detail when I see or hear something that surprises me.
