If its too loud, you're too old?

This is interesting.

Geoff Emerick, an engineer on the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s album, said: “A lot of what is released today is basically a scrunched up mess.

“Whole layers of sound are missing. It’s because record companies don’t trust listeners to decide themselves if they want to turn the volume up.”
Makes you wonder how much of an effect a sound engineer can have an album.
