agree. It's almost like it's a Mastering problem. I guarantee the DR is abysmally low and if that was corrected in the original mix we could be on to some Layne greatness (Pun:yes:goto/next/don't stop/don't stop)Had a good time blasting this with the Mrs. just now. No, not an audiophile experience, but the best we've heard AiC.
A missed opportunity for more discreteness, sure. But this disc has muscle!
Plenty of surround moments, to my taste.
Backing and even lead vocals, guitar overdubs and sometimes solos.
