I have never really 'got' people who analyse music, e.g. put it through editing programs so you can 'see' the music. All music becomes a bit shit when you take away the fact that you just like it. Loudness wars? If you like the release that is on the red line then fine. Listen to it. I like the Hollywood Records CD's, there, I said it.

Why would you do this? ...

I've spent many happy hours playing with the stems on protools and reading my notes from wikipedia. But I think that's different to people (SH forum) that buy a CD and rip it into audacity and then write an essay about how it's not as well mastered as the 1978 japanese vinyl when played through the exact kit they've specified. Without even giving a thought for the fact modern discs have to compete with different playing conditions.

The irony is that the chances their 1978 vinyl plays at exactly the right speed on their deck is pretty much zero. IE wrong.

I know exactly how this thread will go BTW :)

So you're basically asking - "why should we dig deep into things and understand how they're created and why, and how they could be better?"

If we stopped being curious, our species would stagnate and we'd be back in caves.

If you don't understand why people analyze things and find a greater joy in them beyond the surface, then I can only feel sorry for you. Because life becomes so much grander if we go beyond just liking and disliking things in favour of being interested in things.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

When the lyrics are singled out on separate tracks, you can really hear Freddie's range and passion that he sang it with. I wonder if Freddie and the boys actually, or even had time, to analyze their songs to this extent or made the changes intuitively to make it sound better.

Some people find joy in analyzing, others not so much. Everyone is different.

It’s an well made video. At least he knows what he’s talking about. A bit unnecessary, but harmless.
