Can You Hear The Difference?

The new album is mastered now! Matt Odmark (Jars of Clay) finished it up yesterday. Now all that’s left is for him to edit the blank space at the beginnings and ends of songs, and put them in order on the disc. Then I’ll send it off to be duplicated.

I’ve tried before to explain what mastering does to music. I failed miserably. But, here, you can listen for yourself. Here’s the song All Is Grace from first draft to mastered final. (To refresh your memory on the recording process we used, go here.)
