Prince's Dynamic Range album list

This is very cool and shows the quality range of albums according to sound tests. A lot of artist albums are in this website though.

Album list - Dynamic Range Database (loudness-war.info)

well well, the Black Album has the goods for a decent "fan remaster" since the range is there.

Crystal Ball is brickwalled.

Right so, ratings for Dynamic Range (DR)
Average, Min, Max

Purple Rain Deluxe CD1 2017 lossless:
07, 05, 09

Purple Rain 1984 lossless CD:
13, 11, 15

Purple Rain 1984 [US WB # 1-25110] lossless vinyl:
14, 12, 16

Might be worth seeking out the original vinyl/CD rather than using up $22.99 of hard earned cash for the November 12th Target release.

The bad thing about the PR remaster is Prince did that himself clipping included. I still like it better than the original CD

Not exactly shocking, literally every CD since Gold Experience was like a masterclass on brickwalling.

All the original 80s CDs sound either better or basically the same as their remaster equivalent when applicable. Use a dynamic EQ, they're all solid transfers of the mastertapes.

IIRC, the worst was The Breakdown which has a DR of 3.
Many tracks on Lotus Flower have a DR of 4.

I knew there was something wrong with Breakdown. It clips especially by the end. Something wrong with the drums being too loud.
