You know whats funny?

thats how albums were originally mastered ...

The louder it is the more the signal gets squashed and you start to lose the detail.. but in the last 10 years for whatever reason everyone got the impression that "louder is better".

Compare all the albums from the 90's and early 2000's to the sh*t in the past 5-10 years and you'll hear what I mean.
Naa I know exactly watu talkin bout but aside from sh*t being too loud. It actually makes the music sound better. It sounds more like a movie in my headphones. But Jay's is a couple notches lower & his vocals aren't as clear as those albums I just named.

Yo is it me or was this Hov album mastered sorta lower than normally?

I'm comparing this to other itunes mastered albums I have:

ESGN
Excuse My French
The Gifted

some just to name a few & it seems like Hov's jawn is all lower than theirs in terms of loudness? Is it just me? If anyone else has these albums or iTunes quality albums can ya do a side by side right after playing one song play another comparison to let me know if I'm buggin or not..
Is not just you, i know exactly what you mean...

As a matter fact, go listen to the Holy Grail track on youtube and then listen to the one on the album, listen to the drums... they don't knock as good as they did in the commercial.

Even though i agree with the guy who said albums were mastered "low" like that to preserve the quality, i don't think that's the case for this one... i believe the tracks have a lower quality feel cause they were downloadable phone tracks... we will see the difference when it comes out in CD format if it does.

Album is average.best album since black album.Im not saying its on the same level as black album.not evenclose.But then again albums after black album were crap.

Production is overrated.Lyrics are average but his flow on some tracks were off

And y the hate on BBC. That's one of the better beats on the album
