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

Posted July 9th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

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
