if you compile a sampler/compilation you have to do at least some leveling  
to make the release bearable to listen to. so maybe we should credit  
sound/balance/mixing/mastering (? i don't know the exact differences..)  
engineers on a fuzzy release lvl for these kind of releases to inhibit  
that recordings get stained by these ARs?
