    I have the Asian release of this CD, the one that comes with the bonus disk.

    I have noticed a total audio dropout on Track 2 (of the main disk, track is called "Polaris") @ 3mins 48secs :(

    If anyone else has this CD, can you let me know if it's on yours too please? :)

    I'm not sure if it is a problem with the Asian release in particular that is not present on other releases elsewhere, or if it is on all releases. I have downloaded the MP3 of the track from Kazaa and there is no audio dropout on it :(

    I don't think my particular copy is at fault as I would expect the CD to skip if there was a problem that bad with the disk :confused:

    Thanks :)

    Thanks. They are sending me a replacement :) I hope it is just my copy and not a problem with the Asian release itself as I quite like the bonus disk :(

    Squirrel god, I bought my Zero 7 from CDWow (Hong Kong) about a year ago and it exhibited some strange behaviour in that it had a few skips at a certain point Im sure it was Polaris BTW, on my PC but not my DVD transport, I returned it to them and they told me it was a faulty batch and would send me another, I have not noticed anything since. I will check tonight for you though.

    Yep one of the albums of 2001/2 IMHO.

    Damn. Don't hold up much luck for my replacement then. Thanks for checking mate.

    Looks like I'll have to get the UK or US release then. Oh well :(

    Well, the replacement CD arrived today.

    The audio dropout is still there, in the same place, so it has to be a mastering problem with the Asian release. How can they let something like this slip through unnoticed? It's annoying as hell and stands out like a sore thumb :(

    Will have to get a refund now and buy the single disk UK or US release :(

    Thanks for checking your copies guys - appreciated :)

    thanks for reminding me about this album, it had been sitting forgotten at the back of my car cd collection, but I dug it out after reading this thread and brought it back inside where it belongs, sounds incredible on my system, great production and a real reference quality CD, if there is such a thing.

    Presumably you do not mean "feel a hole (sic) lot better". Or are you on the back seat?
