    I love love love the band personally but their album is so quiet. Its either really poorly produced or i'm just downloading duds. I downloaded the album once from megadownload and then found it too quiet so downloaded the second (same album), which was the same volume. I dont mean it's rediculously quiet as in theres something wrong with it. But i have really powerful speakers and when i play most music, i usually have the volume set to about a quater of the way (half if theres no one to disturb :cool: ) but with LOTP i have to have it right near full volume. Also its very annoying when i'm listening on my ipod, i always have full vol on and i'll listen to a NORMAL volume track, and then LOTP comes on and feels so quiet. Very frustrating.

    anyone else found this?

    you dont think it's slightly quieter than other albums? If not can you send it me please! like upload onto torrent for me to download. The quietness of mine is really bugging me.

    Do you have the metronomy nights out album, is it much quieter than that? I find it a lot quieter than metronomy

    Just buy the album? If you love it so much, it won't hurt you to part with £7, or thereabouts to hear it properly. Mine's fine.

    You can sort it out in itunes. Right click, press get info, then go to the options tab and increase the volume there.

    If it's quieter than other albums it may be because you're used to condensed music. These days a lot of music is mixed to keep high levels (aka. brickwalling) because if the song is played in the club amongst other songs playing at the same volume the condensed song will sound louder. Obviously everyone wants their song to stand out more so they all do it. It's especially noticable if you listen to a song on an mp3 player, a lot of new albums will sound a lot louder than most albums from the 80s.

    But then if you listen to another album that isn't as badly condensed then it can sound really quiet, usually it's from slightly geeky bands who care about sound tech.


    ...or you're just downloading duff copies.
