  4. Very good news, though I don't understand why they think putting UNTITLED and PLEDGE so close to each other is a good idea (they did it on TOXIC too). While I enjoy both of these soogs, they are just way too similar, and I believe they aren't the most suitable tracks to end the album either (I know the tracklist is chronological, but still). Other than that, I'm very looking forward to this one. edit: nvm, I believe the "song list has not decided" part in the OP means it's not the final track order.
  5. It's so strange... they sound like a completely different band now. And it's hard to admit, but i'm kinda enjoying these new songs as well. Btw, I'm not sure if it's an old info or not, but it seems like there will be 2 different editions of this album. The edition listed in the OP will be sold in Japan only. The worldwide edition will be relesed 2 days later (2017.1.13) and will have a semi-different tracklist and album cover:
  6. The album you are referring to is just a 2nd press of SM, but they're also releasing another collection called SM #2 (see tracklist in the original post) that contains every single since SM. I don't see why they should add everything to SM, but even if they did, it would be much more expensive. So if someone wants all their singles, they can just buy both collections instead.
  7. Isn't that the case though?
  8. Thanks for the replies! I've tried foobar2000 - it's still there, but only when I manually open the file (file --> open). If it's in the player and I click "play", it sounds flawless. This is very strange. I previously tried iTunes, Media Player Classic Home Cinema and my iPod Classic, it was there each time. Since it sounds the same on my iPod, I don't think the problem is with my PC or speakers, but I'm gonna try it on a different computer later to see if I hear any difference. Anyway, I'm releaved there's nothing wrong with the conversion process I've been using. I can live with this if it's just this one particular song or album, but if anyone has any idea what can be behind this, please share them. Thanks again for your help!
  9. Hi everyone, I'd like to ask for your help, because I'm out of ideas right now. I've been building my music library for a lot of years, always aiming for good quality rips. 320kbps mp3 and 256kbps VBR AAC are good enough for me, so I'm usually not looking for lossless. However, there are some albums that can't be find in good quality mp3 or AAC - it's either FLAC or a bad transcode. In these cases, I usually download the FLAC files, convert them to ALAC (because FLAC is not supported by iTunes) with a tool called "Bigasoft Audio Converter", put the ALAC files in iTunes, then convert them to AAC. I thought this method was safe to use, because I've been told there's no quality loss when converting from lossless to lossless. Today I've been listening to a 12012 album ("mar maroon") I previously converted from FLAC to ALAC then AAC, and suddenly realised there was some kind of noise at the beginning of track 2 ("DNA") that shouldn't have been there. At first, I thought the original FLAC file was corrupted, but when I opened it, I couldn't hear any noise. Made another ALAC file, and it was there again. Then I downloaded another tool ("Mediahuman Audio Converter") hoping for a different result, but it gave me the same noisy ALAC file. Even made a WAC conversion, and that couldn't help either. My question is: do you think there's some kind of problem with this specific FLAC file, or it's something else? I'm worried that the method I've been using for years isn't as safe as I thought. The noise itself isn't that bad, but I really don't want to look through my whole library just to realize other files have the same (or worse) problem. If it helps, the FLAC file I'm talking about was previously uploaded here at MH by mucc6 (who was generous enough to share almost the whole 12012 discography in lossless - thanks a lot for that!), and I believe the same rip can be find at JPopsuki. Anyway, I've uploaded this specific track in FLAC and ALAC for those who are willing to check it: It's right at 0:00 in the ALAC file. Maybe you won't notice it at first, but I believe it can easily be heard if you listen closely. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks everyone, and sorry for the long post.
  10. I really liked this last year:
  11. Easily their best song since "420"
  12. Soo looking forward to this! lynch. is one of the few band that has never disappointed me.
  13. I really want them to stop making these awfully bland black & white covers for the regular editions. It just represents the unimaginative nature of their music these days, sadly.
