lo-fi again

I happened to take a look at my most recent posts and noticed the item below about "lo-fi" techno and was confused.
I was confused because just a couple of days ago I had made similar complaints (to myself) and here thought, "How could that have been before the trip?"
Then I realized that it was a different release.
So anyway a couple of days ago I was listening to a well-regarded producer's new album and really struggled to finish it due to ear fatigue.
Should I name names? I'm really not into audio that's pointlessly blown out, and it can't be saved with interesting backstory and imagery.
There are a few producers I'm repeatedly duped into checking out or reluctantly trying again by reviews and retailers. I think I've finally thrown a few into the DNR zone.
