I am with you and have shared your pain with some CDs I purchased in the
last 20 years. Most bestial example in my CD-Rack is a single from the
Foo Fighters that comes with a "B"-side that is actually mastered with a
lot of respect for dynamics and sounds actually very good while the
"A"-side is a lifeless synthetic simulation of rock-music that looks
like a line of toothpaste in an editor.

I use to react to such policies by not buying/listening to music that is
made that way. It is the artists choice to sound that way and I respect
that and in respect for my own holy and immaculate personal taste I do
not buy it.

Regarding tools for "unmastering":

I tried that several times to find methods to repair badly made
recordings etc but I found, that there is not much that can be done
about dynamics and near to nothing about distortion/clipping.

Tools for audio-restoration are not that elaborated in Linux anyway. In
some cases I had a little success by applying EQ to filter parts of the
signal, that made distortions prominent for the hearing and maybe this
could ease the pain for you too but I never managed its to restore
dynamics *and* keep the signal authentic and filtering to diminish
distortion has a very strong tendency to make the result sound numb.

best regards...
