MightyZep Posted January 17, 2008 Share Posted January 17, 2008 Hello all. I recently have acquired a record player and several albums (four of them being Led Zeppelin records). It's pretty interesting to listen to the songs in their original format and hear them in the way that the generation before me did. With that said, it is also interesting to hear how certain records are louder than others and some are quieter. For example: IV tends to be quite a bit louder than II. II is in excellent shape and so vinyl condition has nothing to do with why it is softer. I am also not talking about the music itself (I know that Thank You is naturally a quiet song). The music is great but it sounds muffled or distant. So I'm wondering, are certain albums just not as loud as others? Or perhaps I somehow got an unlucky record that was not as high in sound quality? PG is also sort of quiet to me. You'd think that Kashmir would shatter windows, but it tends to be more quite and muffled like II. Anyone know much about records and their sounds? Or the different way Zeppelin albums were recorded? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
