99.99999999999% of listeners don't notice and/or care though so is it really an issue?

99.99999999% of listeners who know of the issue somehow notice it everywhere. Almost as if Placebo is more than just the name of a band with a guy singing from his nose.

Exactly. The question is... why people in the music industry value loudness over quality? ...and why Muse do the same?

Everybody cite Death Maginetic as the prime example of the loudness war, but was a problem before and after that.

I'd imagine it's because music fidelity decreased with the move to digital, and dynamics go out the window on most commercial records in order to make it 'stand out' more on shitty radio band compression. That's one reason I've read.

Only issue with T2L is the heavy section just aren't quite heavy enough for my taste. The Survival riffs get close, but I'd just like that extra 10% b33f.
BH&R would benefit. I could see Abso and Origin benefitting from a less extreme version of the production used on Alien by Strapping Young Lad. Alternately claustrophobic, then massive and spacious.

Californication has some painful moments in that regard

Yes, SA was actually pretty well mixed i'd say but they definately needed someone else producing them.

I'd say they had a few decent songs on Californication and two on By The Way. But they haven't released a solid album since BSSM

I'm surprised by the lack of votes for Absolution. The production on that album is what made me prefer it to OOS.
