[quote=Spin][quote=zvan92]@Doofly: What's even more devastating is that the fault is reproduced in the cd as well, and its clearly audible in .WAV format. :( [/quote]
Yeah I'm really disappointed by it too. I think it's actually an effect that has been applied to the vocals that's killed its 'liveliness'. It's definitely the biggest production flaw on the album.
Despite that it's a brilliant song, there's so much feel and emotion in this song, I love the dynamics, similarly with the guitar solo in breaking all illusions.
Well, that sucks. Hopefully it isn't as apparent as the mp3 on the disc in my vehicle. That's the only consistent time I get to "crank it up". I will say that it's the only gripe at this time I have with the entire album.
[quote=zvan92]This song is wonderful, along with the rest of the album. I'm glad that Dream Theater's sound has returned to a more mature form... the form I'm most familiar with. However, I just cannot seem to get over the extremely obvious mixing and/or engineering flaw at 1:18 where the vocals are terribly muffled throughout the rest of the verse and into the chorus. I think next time they should find someone else to do the mixing (I have a feeling Andy screwed this one up because Paul Northfield usually seems to do a fine job). It's truly unfortunate. :( [/quote]
I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. It's definitely more apparent on the mp3 vs the flac version. I can't wait until I get my CD in the mail so I can just play it in the vehicle insead of the IPod.
Well, got the email not that long ago...said the email was sent yesterday at noon to my email...I checked again and my junk mail box and nothing.
They included the link, so all is good now. Nice tip on the drop down to change the format...
Omy...that sucks. Hope you get that straightened out soon.
I'm still one of those that payed with PayPal and still haven't recieved an email for the download.
Email sent in to their support...still waiting...uhgggg.
