Distortion was noticeable on digital format as well as CD. Very poor quality on car stereo really drives home the point.
Somehow, producer Alex da Kid thought that intentionally introducing that awful, cheap sounding distortion (several tracks, most notably beginning on 'Radioactive'), was somehow "artistic". What a stupid idea.What's this about distortion? The bass in the song Radioactive has been distorted to sound like subwoofers maxed out. It's a rough and gravelly sound that doesn't sound good on good stereo systems (such as the stereo systems in the average car these days). I got the CD, and I agree with the criticism. It's OK, but not good.
Theres something called the radio edit version of the song, which I like, but it also seems like it's distorted too much too.
