Earaches idea of Full Dynamic Range vinyl reissues is to counteract the Loudness War and ensure that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound. Pure and organic audio pressed straight to180- gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes many of which were stored for 20+ years. This concept is not designed for the casual music fan that might only listen to albums on their phone or iPod but the real music enthusiasts who like to put a record on a turntable, sit back and absorb the sound waves at the optimal quality. Experiencing the warmth and depth to the music as it was originally intended the instruments leap out of the speakers.
