Just had a quick gander at 606 in my audio editor. Seems that they've pushed it to just below the 0db limit without digital clipping. A good thing. Otherwise we'd get split second bursts of digital noise that sound harsh. Never a good thing for the ears.
However, it is compressed hard. Still, better than some albums. I'm sure this was intentional as Patfromcanada suggests. They were going for a harder sound with digital polish. Certainly a few steps away from previous albums. However, subjectively, they were easier on my ears...
