One of the most inconsistent mastering engineers out there. Sometimes his work is quite good with decent dynamic range and other times it's compressed within an inch of its life. It really just depends on the particular album and version you're talking about. I do not know if this is record label/management/band pressure to make things so compressed or the way he wants it. Caveat emptor, research before buying is my advice.

Don't buy his remasters!! They sound awful, compressed, no noised to death, the have no dynamic range, it's painful to hear his CDs. Avoid him unless you want to have a headache!
