Someone recently posted elsewhere that STG is a bit "shrill". Yes it is isn't it. Until you know it well it's pretty hard to listen to in the car, where road noise subsumes all the bottom and leaves you with only the shrillness.


Ooh get me, finding fault today.

I think STG is mastered much like the re-release of Heaven Born - "hot" to the point of clipping. And that's the original release, so there's not even nice earlier version to track down for something that's gentler on the ears. It's not so bad on a stereo, but I can't listen to it with headphones because it does actually hurt a bit.

Mm? :wink:



Feels like EQ as well as just clippy stuff. Bit of a peak at *holds finger to the wind* 4k or so.

Sounds unfailingly great to my big flappy ears.

I'm reminded of a Billy Bragg lyric:

"The tempatation,
To take the precious things we have apart, to see how they work,
Must be resisted for they never for together again"

Obviously, he's singing about his fussy missus, but you know what I mean...
