I am very detailed with respect to my cds. Yesterday I was listening to the soundtrack "The Book Thief", when I noticed a failure in the track 14, near 1:46. I looked at the surface of the cd, but it was perfect with no risk. Anyone else noticed this. I decided to post on the forum to find out if it is a problem of recording or specifically my copy, in which case I'll need to replace it.

What kind of failure? I'll be getting my copy tomorrow if all goes well so I can check it when I get my copy.

There's a big digital click/skip.

It is as if the music had jumped or some interference in the recording happens in 1:46 (with greater intensity) and a few seconds later (with less intensity).

Yes, that's right. You described it well.

It's on every CD, on the iTunes version, Amazon mp3's.

At least in Europe.

I thought this was an issue was my computer/cd ripper, but I guess it's a common problem.

Yep, same here. But it's very minor indeed.

Here's what I wrote to a friend last week:

"One negative observation… track 14 has a couple of “ticks” that shouldn’t be there. I blew up the waveform and that shows the ticks aren’t spikes in the sound, but rather gaps with loss of signal – the waveform shows tiny amounts of empty space at those points. Clearly, it’s not an individual CD error, but some kind of mastering glitch. So I don’t think replacing it will cure anything, unless they remaster it".

I ripped the wav on my CD, because my players are not good enough to detect any skip or pop.
And I did notice a tiny gap around the 1:44 mark that lasts about 10/100 of a second. So it may
be pretty minor on my disc. Or at least my players don't seem to skip when they hit it.
