    Some parts of this were interesting but it never quite delivered on that promise. It seems to wander around not sure what it is trying to be. Guitars occasionally good but then disappear.

    Level seems low, I had to turn up about 4db compared to what I normally listen to the blog releases at. Audio quality and quad decode are fine (though the quad isn’t the most interesting mix), it’s just the level that’s low.

      If memory serves me right, the reason for the apparent lower leve3l of this release is due to it’s dynamic range, having a few high level peaks.

      Fair enough. I’m all in favour of large dynamic range. I can’t say I spotted the high peaks, but my own experience mastering stuff tells me that you don’t always notice them. They can be very transient.
