Normally I'd agree, but in this case the mastering treatment seems to fit the style of the album. The drums in the front channels are supposed to be hammering out loud, repetitive beats in the style of electronic music. The opening percussive drone to "Money Doesn't Make You A Man" should immediately jump out at the listener rather than start off quiet and get louder. I think the whole thing would've lost power, intensity, and overall drive if they made it too dynamic. It's all a matter of opinion, I suppose.I do wish the DR had been 13 -15 range to leave some breathing space so I could crank this.
I guess the style of music is at issue here?Gave it away.
