Hello all, just found this forum (see below for why I was looking). I am starting to get back into music and I was reading about the loudness wars (I have not been a serious music listener for the past 10 years or so), today I finally heard what all the fuss was about:

I was listening to Judas Priest's 2005 release Angel of Retribution on CD then I switched to Screaming for Vengeance, Judas Priest circa 1982, and I was shocked at how "bad" the 2005 AOR sounded (obviously a victim of the loudness wars) in comparison (not nearly as clear and dynamic, almost a grating quality).

My question is if I search out that same 2005 AOR album on either the original vinyl release or the Back on Black reissue, will they suffer from the same issue? And overall will buying vinyl releases of new material have the same issue (so will I be able to bypass the loudness war by purchasing LP's instead of CD's and turning them into CD's myself)? Is it all just case by case depending on who mixed it?

Thanks for any input.

It does peel off easy but it leaves kind of a film on the LP itself, not sure if it is in the groove and damaging or not.

Here is the LP out of the plastic sleeve:
