Was excited to learn of a new Marcus King album (sans his band). I listen to the samples on Amazon and they're utterly revolting to a ridiculous degree. Just killed any enthusiasm I had. Extreme compression, distortion in the vocals, that in-your-face dry sound that (to me) sounds lo-fi in a real bad way, zero dynamics found anywhere, basically everything I truly despise about modern production is represented in those samples. Some material sounds interesting but I can't see myself grinding my teeth and white-knuckling it through a single song with that moronic production/mastering style. Why would anybody readily ruin what could be nice music??? It won't even play on the radio so what's the point of pulling this crap? I mean, listen to this,... https://www.amazon.com/El-Dorado-LP-Marcus-King/dp/B07YTD3CPK Only 3 samples available. Tracks 2 & 8 are utter garbage. Track 3 could be so beautiful if it were mastered differently. Thankfully not as bad as the 2 others but... Sorry for the rant but I'm *so* sick of this crap. There is some good modern music out there but I can't listen to it when it sounds like total @#*%.
