Not my area of expertise but ALL recordings fall into that camp (the MacDonalds syndrome of sound)? Difficult to believe but if you’ve got some outside references to back that up, I’ll have learned something about ‘modern’ sound recordings.

Here you go, just took a few seconds on our Google friend

http://www.cdmasteringservices.com/dynamicrange.htm

In 2001, mastering engineer, Bob Speer, wrote the following article about the abuses of compression in modern recordings.
The article (with several updates) is as relevant today as it was then.

What happened to dynamic range is a question that should be asked of record labels, producers, artists, and last but not least, recording and mastering engineers. The question needs to be asked because we're the ones responsible for what's happened
to our music. Much of the music we listen to today is nothing more than distortion with a beat. Great music is suffering because it lacks dynamic range. When music lacks dynamic range, it lacks punch, emotion, and clarity. The record labels blame digital
downloads, MP3s, CD burners, and others for the lack of CD sales. While there is some truth to their constant whining, they only have themselves to blame for the steady decline in CD sales. The record labels need to reevaluate what they consider to
be good music.

Interesting and I learned something thanks but....

As Iliah correctly points out, most isn’t all! So you’ve got a lot more work ahead of you based on this statement of yours which is highly speculative:

IanYorke wrote: As a side issue in Hifi dynamic range used to be considered vital but these days the source recordings are all Compressed to hell to make them have more "impact" so they sound good on cheap headphones.

Most/much indeed isn’t all. So you may wish to rephrase that sentence of prove it’s validity to your readers.

Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get em, get em right, or they will get you wrong.
