Are you implying that because Dave Fridman is a big name that proper communication regarding horrible sounding distortion and over compression should be avoided??? That is just plain silly in my honest opinion.
That being said I have a feeling (of course I don't know for sure though) that the sonic damage occurred in the mastering stage.
