Unless you made something really weird when encoding the mp3, I'd
really suggest you avoid the "professional engineer" in the future.
The track is so badly compressed and brickwall-limited it distorts in
The best thing would be if you pointed him to some articles about the
loudness war (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war is a starter)
and explained that it's not a good thing and you don't win by hitting
0dB as many times as possible during a song.
