    Hello. There seems to be a serious problem gaining volume with songs of the metal type (Think Breaking Benjamin, Nickelback etc. ) I need to set them good 8 dB higher than other ones so they would sound at about the same volume.
    In fact it is so bad that on max volume on my player and max volume in my car I can still barely hear them normalized to what MP3Gain thinks is 95 dB. There's *definitely* something not right with the algorithm. Classical music is so loud I have to put the volume down by a lot (from 56 to 35) but my heavy rock I cannot hear. Playing with equalizer settings doesn't help.
