LP plays way too softly
When it first came out, the eponymous Mr. Bungle album was only available on CD. It is one of my most raucous and loud cd's. And I love it.
So when it came out on vinyl some months ago, I rushed to buy it. And when I crank the stereo to "10," it sounds like I'm playing it a "2" or maybe "3."
My vinyl rig always sounds a little softer than cd's but nothing like this!
I have a Helikon in an LP12 with a Tom Evans Groove, going into Cary SLP-05/MB500's and Aerial 9's. CD is a ModWright Sony.
Most albums are capable of rocking out the house (assuming they are rockin' to begin with), but this album ought to be capable of superloudness -- otherwise it just doesn't sound right.
How could this happen? Has this ever happened to you? Is it some screwed up remastering? Why would a loud band rerecord softly?
As you can see, I am at a loss. Your help would be gratefully appreciated.
