I have to disagree with a very small group of reviewers who keep propagadting a loudness war myth. Yes some CDs have been remastered too loud but not this CD or any other of THE CARS / CDs which all sound excellent. As do the Genesis  , Alice Cooper , Rod Stewart , RUSH , BAD COMPANY and BTO , which all sound amazing as well. You would have to of actually heard these CDs to know that NOT just guess at what they may sound like? Don't fall for the MFSL sound police. Find out for yourself.

This is not a pro remaster, just Over Amped, Loudness Wars mastering where volume EQ has been pushed to distortion overload. Harldy any headroom, peaks and clips into the red zone on graph meter. Sounds horrible on AKG headphones. . HDCD sound is the way to go! or just buy the original mastered version and use your volume knob to make it louder. Very Sad the music industry no longer shows any interest in sound quality, only to cater to lossy mp3 iPod/cheap headphone units. Got duped on this one!
I know there's been some controversy about these Cars SHM-CD releases concerning them being remastered too loud. I agree they maybe remastered somewhat louder than some other SHM-CD releases, but the SHM-CD sound is great i think. I didn't even notice any problem with any loudness effecting the sound in a bad way. I didn't detect any harshness whatsoever. They sounded great with lots of enhanced clarity and detail. I love this release, it rocks on my stereo system!
