Victoria: I see that you have a really extensive music collection.
我看到你收藏了很多种音乐。
J.D.: Yeah, I like a lot of different genres of music.
是啊,我喜欢很多不同的音乐。
Victoria: Do you have the new J.McQ album? He’s my favorite artist. I just got it and I like all of the tracks on it.
你有新的J. MCQ专辑吗?他是我最喜爱的大师。我刚刚买到专辑,我喜欢里面的所有曲目。
J.D.: No, I haven’t heard it yet. Do you have it on your MP3 player?
我没有听说过它。你有MP3播放器有专辑歌曲吗?
Victoria: Yeah, here, I’ve cued up the first track.
有,在这儿,我插入的第一首曲目。
J.D.: Hmm…I like the beat of the first song, but I’m not blown away by the rest of it. It’s also a really bad mix. The bass is up too high; you can hardly hear the treble. Is the whole album like that?
嗯... ...我喜欢的第一首歌曲的节拍,但其余的歌曲我不怎么喜欢。这也是一个非常糟糕的混合。低音涨得太高,你很难听到高音。整张专辑都这样吗?
Victoria: Yeah, I guess so. I didn’t notice. Maybe the volume wasn’t up high enough.
是的,我猜是这样。我没有注意到。也许音量不够高。

J.D.: No, it was up high enough. Maybe he’s just not that good a vocalist and the sound engineers are trying to cover it up in the mixing.
不,音量已经最高了。也许他不是没有那么好的歌手,而音响师试图通过混音来掩盖他的声音。
Victoria: Are you kidding? He’s an amazing singer. Come on, listen to another track. I’m sure you’ll change your mind.
你在开玩笑吗?他是一个惊人的的歌手。来吧,听另一首曲目。我相信你会改变主意。
J.D.: No, thanks. I’d rather listen to a bunch of fighting cats than listen to anymore of J.McQ!
不,谢谢。我宁愿听一群猫大家也不愿意听J.McQ的歌了!
