I asked Ole aobut it few months ago (after percussions recordings), and he said that they will do everything to keep dynamics on this album.

Yeah, that was one area where Illumination really suffered. "The Ravens" is an awesome song, but listening to it can be unbearable.

I'm glad he said that, 'cause Illumination had that problem (not as bad as others, but still).

In My Opinion, the songs on myspace are quite a bit overproduced. They did give in to the loudness war after all :)

But in my opinion they're not as bad as it can be, so.... Be happy from what we have. :P Listen to Exile - loud, but dynamic after all. :)
