It was sad to see that U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb was also included with the horrible recording techniques.

I didn't have much time to check it out, but turnmeup.org looks relevant

 

Turn Me Up! Certified

To preserve the excitement, emotion and dynamics of the original performances this record is intentionally quieter than some. For full enjoyment simply Turn Me Up! (www.TurnMeUp.org)

Audio Engineer Claims that Metallica's Latest Album Sounds Better on Guitar Hero III



Mastering Engineer Ian Shepherd is among those who believe that the distortion Metallica fans have been complaining about since the release of Death Magnetic is not present in the Guitar Hero III version. As he notes: "In comparison, the released CD version is - to coin a technical phrase - smashed to fuck." So who or what is to blame here? Shepherd believes that the album was the latest victim of the so-called "loudness wars" going on in the industry right now. That is to say, engineers are over-editing and sacrificing sound quality to achieve a higher level of louditude. The GHIII version strips away the clipping and focuses more on dynamic range.
People are actually recording themselves playing the Metallica tracks and uploading them online because they sound so much better! I believe the people who make guitar hero have bought the rights to the entire album' date=' meaning theoretically they could release the 'enhanced' version?[/quote']

P.S. look on Demonoid for the GH3 one. It has more seeds than the other anyway...
Maybe they can release "And justice for all" on GH3 then.
