I have been bangin' Strangeland and noticed there is a slight distortion on some of the kicks in some tracks, I have a pair of shit-hot SHURE SRH940 studio monitor headphones, they have even been compared to 'the worlds greatest headphones' the Sennheiser HD 800's, so I know for a fact it isn't the headphones making the distortion, it's the mix, anyone else notice this? By the way Im listening to Audio not mp3.
i would not have thought id revive this thread
i actually didnt notice any bothering distortion on sad circus, well i think its the second thing. i produce instrumentals and i also happen to have some distortion on them if i screw up the mastering (im not a pro but i do know some things)
youre right its still a sick album
for the (lucky) people who dont notice the distortions:
you gotta listen to it on hifi or studio speakers with built in woofers instead of 2.1 systems or car hifi systems with a subwoofer and satellites to notice it (or on good headphones as he did)
screw it theres nothing one could do about it anyway ima just try kinda to ignore it and enjoy the tracks
greetz from germany btw

this could be 1 of 2 things
1). the beats actually have distortion on purpose (i believe thats the case on sad circus)
2).the album was mastered too loud, alot of the tracks over power the vocals
still an amazing album though
haha i noticed it thought it was just me i hear it in kocky, and welcome to strangeland
I noticed this too when i played the cd in my car with my system, the bass was overpowering and i couldnt hear any verses
If you are listening to the album via iPod touch then it's a well known issue that occurs after upgrading to iOS 5.0.
If not then I do not know...
Rob Rebeck left along with his superior mixing & mastering
