There seems to be something wrong with the two last tracks on GLS, Secret Greasing and Love of My Life. It sounds as if the CD is full of scratches, because it jumps a lot. Don't see anything wrong on the CD's surface though...

Hm... Now it's only the last track that's acting weird... on my computer. It plays all fine in my stereo.
Fuck!


A CD player in your stereo it designed to work around any errors it encounters. A computer doesn't, taking everything bit by bit, and it's not forgiving of errors. Most players on your computer have a setting about using error correction when playing audio CDs, this may help.

Aha! Thanks for the information!

Now I will sound like a fucking n00b or whatever it's called, but do you know how to get to that setting in Windows Media Player or iTunes?

Choose iTunes > Preferences.

In the General pane, click Import Settings.

Select “Use error correction when reading Audio CDs.”

or WMP

Tools>>Options>>Devices>>Select CD/DVD device and click on "Advanced". After that check the checkbox which says "Use error correction".

It didn't help. :( Well, maybe it's because my computers CD/DVD system and/or iTunes and Windows Media Player are pieces of shit.

Thanks for the help anyway, calvin.
