For anyone who has the new vinyl from HT20 - has anyone else noticed that the Hybrid Theory vinyl sounds like total garbage compared to the HTEP and Reanimation? It sounds like the mix is too "hot", like there is a lot of clipping in the vocals, drums and guitar. I also noticed on the inner ring of the vinyl that there is a "!" etched onto it. This is often a symbol used in the mixing and mastering process to indicate that a mix is too hot and should be reduced to -6dB before mastering. Are these two things possibly related?
I am also curious if anyone with an OG print of Hybrid Theory can weigh in and let me know if that vinyl sounds bad as well.
