Another great piece of writing. As always, Brad, you make a tricky audio concept clear.

That is by far the best explanation of compression I've read. Well done, Brad!

Well done. Clear, concise and great metaphors. (now how do I get to the brick wall that seems to be all the rage nowadays...?)

Really enjoyed that, man! I've been eyeing off the Mr Black "Big Payback" compressor (I mean, it's called the Big Payback - that in itself makes me want it) and this helps me understand my urge to buy one. :) Good job.
