    gonna go on car trip soon and was looking at my CD auto changer. Believe it or not, transformers the movie 1986 OST has got to take slot number 1 :D 
    I was planning on buying a the re-release 20th anniversary OST with the few additional tracks from amazon:
    Amazon.com: Transformers the Movie (Exp): Various Artists: Music

    however, does anyone know if the volume has been re-adusted to be higher then the first release CD? I seem to be the only person notice that I have to put the volume much higher then my newer CDs. is it because the way it was recorded back then? the bass also seems lower. trust me, its not the CD head unit settings as its pumping full whack from my 1000 watt sub that even Jazz himself would be proud :cool: 

    I am gonna sound odd but, I wanna keep my original release CD mint. I do play the CD but not in the car. I seen on rare occuations the auto changer scratch some cds and I dont wont that to happen on my first release cd :eek:  hence, the reason to get the newer release.

    Most older CDs are "low volume" like that. Usually the cut-off point is 1993 and older for the most part from what I can tell.
