I am a huge rise against fan, I have all of their music on CD and Vinyl. One thing really bugs me though is that the song "Elective Amnesia" is only available from iTunes - and only when you buy the whole album mad.gif - But what I really want is a lossless version of this song. I have a copy that my friend gave my from his iTunes and it sounds really bad. I would be willing to buy the whole album just for this one song, if I can find a lossless version.

Thank you for all your help!

File corruption will not result in the problem as it was described. That it may be due to the delivery format being lossy is also highly doubtful.

That the track was purchased from iTunes pretty well rules out the format being mp3 which can have problems with temporal smearing due do block-size issues. Even if it was high-bitrate mp3, those who are able to detect the problem aren't going to characterize it as "sounding bad".

Bad mixing/mastering is the most likely answer. Another possible answer is that this track was sourced from lossy to begin with and may have even been transcoded. This could be in addition to bad mixing/mastering.

A short fair-use clip might help us make better sense of the problem rather than leaving us speculating.

Also, remember TOS #9 when replying. Any violation of this rule will carry serious consequences. I we have a zero-tolerance policy about this and it is not up for debate.
