This comparison is of Blondie’s original Greatest Hits album with the same tracks from The Platinum Collection.  I recently picked up Greatest Hits and wanted to see what the difference was between it and my older “best of” CDs.  Turns out to be pretty significant.

Even though the Greatest Hits peaks at 100% (in Hanging On The Telephone), the Platinum Collection give no such opportunity for a volume peak.  It’s all loud, all the time.
