We're working to encourage music streaming services to adopt the Audio Engineering Society's loudness standard - kind of like ReplayGain or Sound Check, but more comprehensive. We've posted a petition on change.org which has already gathered nearly 4,000 signatures in a couple weeks: https://www.change.org/p/music-streaming-services-bring-peace-to-the-loudness-war
