Hi all, finally I can post here.

My first post is a question to you guys, as I never could find answers on that subject on the net.

I noticed some recording errors on Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" CD when listening carefully to it. However I will only give few examples as I can't recall all by now. I have tested this with various headphones (you probably need good ones), however, once heared you will always hear it again.



Track 10: "Give In To Me" (very short "psst" noise)
-at exact pos.: 0:45 - 0:46 (left Audio Channel only)
-at exact pos.: 2:28 - 2:29 (left Audio Channel only)


I dont think my CD is scratched or something because I have ripped the track several times with accuraterip confidence. But still it sucks.

Can I ask the company for a new record? You wouldn't normally expect this quality from MJ.
I might post more examples when I find them again (listening right now) wink.gif

Bumping this topic, after ripping my Michael Jackson Remasters to .m4a for my iPod, auditioning the tracks I noticed the glitch right away on Bad @ 0:06 with my budget Sennheiser HD-201s, taking a listen I also noticed the left speaker glitch on Give in To Me. The glitch on Bad is not present on The Essential Michael Jackson, but Give in To Me isn't on the disc to check that one.

What is it with Columbia based records?

I also noticed my Mariah Carey Greatest Hits CD1 also has metallic background noise (dithering problem?) on tracks 1 and 2.

If I remember correctly there is actually a message in the booklets stating that they are free of defects and to call a certain number if you believe otherwise. I guess quality control was sleeping during the mastering of those releases.

If we posted about every single badly mastered CD, this thread would probably break the maximum number of posts allowed for a thread.

Good point.

One last thing (for those who find this thread in the future), I noticed is that the glitch on Give in to Me is actually on both the remastered and original copies. Weird.
