All Things To All Men by D:Ream

This is an excerpt from D:Ream's comeback single from 2010.

It's an interesting example because the mix that the client sent was already limited and loud so there is very little volume difference between the two versions. The mix feels a touch harsh and the chorus starts breaking up around 1 minute 10 seconds.

After mastering, as mentioned, there's very little difference in level, but it's taken on a lovely warmth in the low end and the top end feels smoother and less piercing. The chorus doesn't seem as distorted now too. You can turn this one up louder than the mix without it hurting.
