\\love the new album, but there's something about the vocals that's catching my attention. Does anyone else think they sound like they're a little....well, fried? I'm not a sound technician, so I don't know the technical terms here, but it's kind of like the sound your speakers make when your amp is turned up too high...sort of a frayed, frazzled sound. Except I'm hearing this on the vocals no matter how soft or loud I'm playing the record. I hear it on my stereo, on my iPod, even on my shower radio/CD player.\\
The vocals IMHO are mixed a little too heavy up front. It's not the most flattering style for Gary's voice. It does seem like there is some peak limiting going on, and im referencing them on studio headphones, studio monitors, home theater system ,car cd player and walkman.
