Hi, @WoodMan48. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're experiencing those differences in volume.
We don't alter music equalization on Pandora from how it appears on the original releases, unlike terrestrial radio, which compresses the entire broadcast. As a result, some songs sound louder than others. However, we do use the Replay Gain technique that encodes a fixed volume adjustment into the mp3/mp4 header so that the actual player (web browser, phone or device) can adjust volume just as the track begins playing. If there are vast differences, it could also be due to different instrumentation or arrangements causing different apparent levels of volume where the actual decibel levels are the same.
We can also try troubleshooting your web browser or the desktop app to see if refreshing it helps.
Feel free to share how you're listening, and I can send over steps. 🎧
