Damn, that's the only problem with your 3 and a half albums?! I'm only having my first album released next month and there are a multitude of problems with it, but loudness is fine, the mastering engineer does all that for me.
Lucky you! I did it all myself (sort of enjoyed it too i guess).
I've googled the loudness wars too, the wikipedia article was interesting. I'm going to experiment a bit more and see what i can do. I think i should probably cut eqs on certain instruments, and use more hi frequency sound, as a lot of times i let either the bass or kick drums rule all!
