In What World Does a Record Producer Think that This Kind of Compression and Clipping is a Good Thing?

Nils Frahm, Says, from the album Spaces. There’s no excuse for this kind of clipping. Presumably, the engineer or producer thought the music was too soft at the beginning, so compressed it heavily, resulting in excruciating clipping and distortion near the end of the track.


To be fair, it’s the only track on the album like this; there’s one other track that has some clipping, but most of them are very quiet. But this one is painful to listen to.
