This comparison is of Blondie’s original Greatest Hits album with the same tracks from The Platinum Collection.  I recently picked up Greatest Hits and wanted to see what the difference was between it and my older “best of” CDs.  Turns out to be pretty significant.

Blondie - Greatest Hits

Even though the Greatest Hits peaks at 100% (in Hanging On The Telephone), the Platinum Collection give no such opportunity for a volume peak.  It’s all loud, all the time.
