Loudness war rumbles on

Here’s a REM fan complaining about the fatiguing sound on the band’s latest CD, Accelerate:

Getting a bit tired? Ears feel a bit sore? Whether you recognize it or not, your brain *is* tiring of the relentless pummelling Accelerate delivers. And it’s not the actual music’s fault – Document, similar style songs, didn’t do this to you. Neither does Monster, nor Life’s Rich Pageant.
