    I was listening to this in my car and noticed a ticking noise on the first disc about half way through. As it played, the ticking became louder and louder and by the end of the disc it was unlistenable. Took it back to Best Buy, and as i waited for the "oh so pleasant" customer service guy to proove me wrong, he says he doesn't hear it. Big surprise. So I nicely ask for a new one, and they oblige. Well, it does the same thing starting at the same spot. Anyone hear this or am I going insane?

    Well actually, my cat and 2 dogs speak to me on a daily basis. But my Queensryche cd still sounds like shit!! [​IMG]
    Seriously, has anyone experienced this on their disc? Maybe I am going insane. [​IMG]

    According to this site, this Queensryche CD is a known corrupted (more commonly known as "copy protected") CD.
    Keep returning it to the store until you get a good one. You may not, but maybe you'll annoy them enough to get them to complain to the record company for foisting these defective products on us.
    Now I'll have to buy that CD to do compatibility tests with it. [​IMG]

    I tried it on my home system today and it sounded okay. Weird. I've determined that my new Blaupunkt in my car is the problem. [​IMG]

    Try it in your DVD player and see if it plays ok.
