Family life seems to be distorting??
on 4 March 2014
First off let me state that I am a massive fan of the Blue Nile but I'm left feeling a little let down with this recent purchase.Now it is possible that I have a defective cd but I would have thought not considering the problem seems to be at high energy points and only on one track (my favourite mores the pity) . I Cant believe that they made a mess of family life's remaster, my copy distorts at the loud vocal parts just about 2 mins in. I'm an audio engineer to trade and I am flabbergasted that no one spotted the over heating and digital distortion in the middle of this track. I'm listening to to it through a D-Command Pro tools desk playing on big Genelec 1031A's speakers so it should be crystal clear, thought it was maybe a problem with the desk or the Marantz cd player so tried it on a small boom box that I have in the studio and my car stereo and the exact same happened... Really surprised and disappointed... Rest of the album seems fine tho. Might just be a dodgy copy of the cd, does anyone else have the same problem?
