Take the Halo 4 OST, for example; thousands of dollars went into making it (they even included DVDs in the special edition dedicated to the soundtrack's making), only to be marred by gross unnecessary compression at the final hurdle. It's a such a shame when this is done to otherwise great music.

I have a similar experience with the soundtrack selection that came with the Assassin's Creed Revelations Special Bonus Yay Woohoo Edition. It's still very good music, but it's as if someone intimidating was standing near the person at the equalization buttons, saying:

Boost the highs a little.

A little more.



Keep going.

Yup, more.


There's a lot of variation between tracks, too. For all the competence possessed by the composer and players, producing this CD seemed a haphazard and loveless event.
