I'll suggest that the mid scoop eq in the mastering here alters the mixes a little. The drum transients and cymbals come forward and the "meat" in the instruments gets pushed back.I have to agree... I made adjustments to multiple song levels as well as certain parts within songs; that being said, once I got the levels adjusted to my liking, this is a fantastic sounding set! (Although Scheiner’s mix is still my preferred version of “Captain”)
I'll follow that comment with noting that a listener could tweak or remaster this and it would come back. The mid scooped mastering doesn't cross the line of genuine destruction. The original balance could be restored with nothing lost. Nothing is distorted or dynamically crushed. This could be pulled and tugged into a different eq profile with no loss. The original sound is still in there and with the pristine HD delivery it could be moved around some with no damage.
It's all fun in theory! I don't have the master tapes in front of me and thus I'm speculating. That's what I think I hear. I'm more of a "work the volume control as needed" kind of guy vs being enamored by a bright flashy loud surface layer. YMMV
