Dinosaur Jr. recalls new album for being too loud; grunge retroactively dies a little inside

Posted July 9th, 2009 by eric

Dinosaur Jr. has recalled part of the European pressing of its latest record, Farm, because it is too loud. What? Is there such a thing as “too loud” in the world of Dinosaur Jr.? Apparently, it was a mastering issue, which raised the volume of the sound 3db’s. I just can’t get over the fact that one of the loudest bands I’ve ever seen has a problem with its record being too loud.

    It probably sounded too distorted on a stereo…looks like some engineers were “indulging” a bit hehe
