A little comparison between two versions of song ‘Rope’ by Foo Fighters. As you can hear, it is very clear that they’re actually from a different source (for example: listen to the solo section in the end of the song). Vinyl version is crisp (DR11) while the CD is horribly overcompressed and brickwalled (DR5). This is not some home-made vinyl recording, it’s an official vinyl rip made from the vinyl master.
