Yeah I see zero flaws in this theory. Seriously, you're 100% correct.

The worst decade for unnecessary loudness was the 1980's; chart-based pop/rock in particular.
Why on earth did we have such a fascination in putting those awful, in-your-face crashing snare drums on all our records?

Not sure about but last few years I noticed that become very popular genre with calm and melodic music, some of tracks sound even like lullaby. For example Lana Del Rey, Adele.

I see this thread turning into "Music Was So Much Better in the Glorious Days of Yore" thread.

More like: all the long-time members have heard the "Music Was So Much Better in the Glorious Days of Yore" **** enough times that we would rather troll this thread than dignify it with a proper response.

The Loudness Wars is a legitimate thing, but it gives sixties purists too much ammo to be a compelling rallying cry. We're more concerned with those people going away than saving music.

Today's "music" has no melody. The music from when I was a kid was something you could hum along with, like Throbbing Gristle.

A loud snare was to ensure a song would be played in a dance clubs, so people would know where the beat was, then it became a fad and every other band follow suit.

The highest volume levels of any albums I own would easily include the Ditty Bops, including or even especially the duo works at the end of their careers. It's simply a matter of recording techniques.
