Thanks to Spotify Premium I'm listening to lots of new music. Tuned into a browse option right now called "Nashville Stripped." Lots of good tunes there, but I'm noticing that most of these songs carry a very strong and powerful bass element, almost to the point where I would consider it the major element of the music. Make no mistake. I enjoy it. It sounds really good. But, when did this become they way stuff gets mixed/recorded? It almost seems like they are doing it just because they can. If I were at a live concert and heard the same mix I would conclude that the bass it too loud!
