Since I originally wrote this post, Spotify have listened to their users, and restored their ‘set the same volume level for all tracks’ option to the Advanced Preferences of their desktop app.
And that’s good news, because:
- It means that Spotify users care about loudness
- They said so, and
- Spotify have listened to them.
All you need to do to take advantage of this improvement is update to the latest version and restart Spotify.
We’re not out of the woods yet.
Because Spotify’s implementation of normalisation
still sucks, big-time could still be improved – that’s why getting why this preference option back was so important.
