Great songs, awful production

First off, Fandangle are a great band and this album contains loads of excellent songs. Unfotunately, it's one of the worst mastered CDs I've ever heard and is almost unlistenable as a result.
The whole album is just a wall of loud, harsh, distorted and digitally clipped noise that makes your ears bleed after a few minutes.
As a result of this, songs like "Sit Back, Just Relax" are just a wall of digitally clipped static from start to finish with everything (drums, brass etc) all sounding harsh and distorted as a result.
In other songs such as "Cheap Escape", the drums are almost inaudible during the louder parts of the song. In fact, they stop early at the end and it takes several bars for you to even notice that they've stopped, so squashed out and quiet they were when they were there.
So, an excellent collection of songs which has been ruined by some of the worst and most destructive mastering I've ever heard. Such a pity.

Right, first off, my band have supported Fandangle 3 or 4 times this year and every single time, they have played a show that will not be forgotten. Buy this album. It is everything anyone could want in a Ska/Punk record, and you will most certainly not regret it. I bought my copy from the guys during our soundcheck the day of they're album launch, (along with a load of VANS + FANDANGLE stickers they forced me to have), and ever since its been in my head. Oliver Twist is a song you will have your grandparents skanking to. Just one word. Absolutely Outstandingly Awesome.
[FANDANGLE & Pancake Eating Freaks - Talking Heads, Southampton - Sunday 21st September 08'. A Show not to be missed.]

If you love Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, and all that good style of ska-punk you will love this cd. Catchy horns and singalong melodies aswell as some witty lyrics, you are missing out if you dont hear this. Had my copy for a few months now as I got it direct from the band, well worth the money!

Haven't heard this album yet but I intend to buy it as soon a it's in stock, first saw Fandangle 3-4 years ago at a local club they rocked then and unlike most bands from then, are still going now, ace Ska/punk music.
