Not sure if any of you have heard this (I knew about the mixing/mastering problems on Death Magnetic, which is what the band was getting at), but I think this song thoroughly explains in general what not to do when mixing and mastering a track.
I think Lars' terrible drumming ruined Death Magnetic more than the brickwall limiter did :3

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with slamming a brickwall limiter. If the song sucks and pumps in a really obvious and detrimental way, then maybe you should think again, but if it makes it louder and punchier, then I don't see a problem. I'm all about big, hyper-compressed sounds though, so I'm fairly biased. But if it sounds better without a limiter on it, the obvious solution is to not include it ;D

don't forget to place the brickwall limiter on the master bus - sop ALL YOUR SONG CAN BE PUMPED!!

as well as placing one on the instrument channel too

BRICKWALL LIMITING OF BRICKWALL LIMITING OMGOMGOMG!!

most people don't know the lyricsto it.

just like if you offhandedly listen to bob marley "jammin" it sounds like he's saying "pajamas"

and I hope you like pajamas too.. pajamapajamapajamapajama pajamapajamapajamapajama pajamapajamapajamapajama pajamapajamapajamapajama...

lol I come back to my musical replacement of NIN - I am deeply honoured. And it's all.. right where it belongs. What if everything aroudn you, isn't quite as it seems? What if everything you used to know, is an elaborate dream? If you look in the reflection, is it all you wanted to be?
