It's called dynamics. Any good band and musician knows how to use it.

"Your Hand in Mine"- Explosions in the Sky
"Sæglópur"- Sigur Ros

IMO, THE best climaxes in all of music. Or, at least, all of the music I've heard.

This. You know, i think this thread could be seen as a sign of the times of what mastering has come to.

The overuse of compression and creating even higher 'percieved loudness' to make things as squished and loud as possible is taking life out of music. Listen to something like 'superstion' by stevie wonder and listen to how much more alive that sounds than something of todays popular music...

pretty much any decent band, tension and release is a major part of musical composition.

It's not an opinion. There's a study somewhere about recordings now vs. a few decades ago. Modern CD's are horrible overcompressed and amplified. Record companies are completely obsessed with making all music as loud as they possibly can, even at the expense of musical quality.

This doesn't apply to ALL newer music, though, of course.

I think you're referring to mostly popular music.

Listen to Devin Townsend's Truth. It's absolutely beautiful.

It's my opinion, and for someone to say it's bad is their opinion.

But yes you do have a point, a lot of over-compression can affect the quality IF you don't do it right.

Tension and release refers mostly to tonality, not dynamics. Dynamic contrast =/= tension and release.

It's called a cadence (or a deceptive cadence) actually.
Dynamics are to do with volume and gain structures.


Any song by Joseph Haydn.

Well every song has it somewhere, be it the really obvious build ups (as shown) or someone as simple as changing the time signature to throw someones expectation off, or not resolving to the tonic note at the end of a section. Otherwise, without it the music would be flat and couldn't invoke any emotional response at all.

Opeth and Incubus are masters at this. There are so many bands that do it well but these two relly stand out

every band should, but two that excel at it in my opinion are bruce springsteen and animal collective.
