Songs that REQUIRE full volume.

  1. That performance sounded so good, it's f*cking ridiculous! I bet they didn't even turn on the heat in the studio as their playing was hot enough to keep them warm, especially what was coming from the bass guitar.

  3. Hell yes. And that's just in regard to the kick drum and bass on "Guts." :rockon:

  5. Yes. The crescendo beginning circa 3:50 at 75+ dB sounds simply epic. Whether or not one likes classical music, there is no denying the power of that passage at the right volume.

  6. It couldn't have better stated any better. As I've stated in more than one thread, I ground that shit to an absolute halt circa the end of 2015/beginning of 2016. I still enjoyed 90% of the posted videos at comfortable, bass-filled 57 dB.

    It helps that my music tastes has changed too.
    This level suits me fine with loudness switch on.

    It's classical, but it's just music to me. Powerful piece and it doesn't have to be cranked all the way.

    I will generally defer listening to these songs until they can be heard at appropriate volume.

  10. Ditto... 10 times over. 75 dB is the exact volume level that I spend the vast majority of time listening to music during the day when I'm not sitting directly in front of the plane of my speakers. It's just loud enough to playback deep, taut audible bass, flesh out the remainder of instruments in a track, and fill my listening space with clear, present vocals. Repeated (and admittedly stupid...) trips to my E.N.T. and sporadic waves of anxiety prompted by fears of self-induced hearing loss went up in smoke when I began to force myself to listen to music between 49 and 75 dB (measured, not guessed) without fail. Every now and then I'll let loose and push it to an absolute max of 85 dB so as to listen to classical music albums (due to dynamic range).

    Some really good picks here but these two need to be added (if they aren’t yet)

  20. The guitar and bass driven groove on this track provides the listener with quite the feel-good vibe. I didn't pay attention to this band beyond this single. After hearing it in full, I'm going to have to look into their discography.
