    Warning: The New Buckingham/McVie is a DR6 (& It's LOUD)

    Took me a bit by surprise; I didn't expect this, as the Fleetwood Mac "flat transfer series" was superb.

    It's the average dynamic range of all the tracks on that album. There's a user-supported dynamic range database.

    You can search by album, or artist. It will show the average, lowest, highest, and a track-by-track average for that particular song. I have found it to be pretty accurate in determining if an album release has been compressed or not, at mastering.

    Those with limited (compressed) dynamic range sound pretty lifeless. It's pretty much loud all the time.

    For an example, look up Rush Moving Pictures. I have the original vinyl, original CD release, and I bought the high resolution boxed set that includes that album. To me, the boxed set version sounds totally lifeless. Both the CD and vinyl are more dynamic despite being technically lower resolution.
