Flea Says the RHCP Album is For Audiophiles - “No Compression or Limiters”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers released their new album Unlimited Love on April 1. Bassist Flea took to social media to explain its sound.

“For you audiophiles out there, the new RHCP record is mastered directly from the tape we recorded it on, no computers, no lame compression or limiters,” Flea tweeted. The bassist also promoted a special Record Store Day edition of Unlimited Love, which features a double-LP vinyl pressing. The album marks the return of guitarist John Frusciante to the mix for the first time since Stadium Arcadium in 2016.

Pure marketing BS.  This world really is losing it's collective mind though.

Maybe the digital recordings were peak maximized? Even if that, it would sure beat using a dynamics compressor. Well, depending on exactly how dynamic you expect their music to be.

Says the man who once endorsed Neil Young's Pono's snake oil-peddling back in the day. 
Listen to the music, not the media it's on.
