Default Scratching noise on Maroon5

So this morning I'm listening to the newly acquired CD Maroon5, Songs about Jane. Because the rest of the familiy is still asleep I'm using a headphone.
Much to my surprise on track 4 (She will be loved) i'm hearing scratches like from a LP. The clicks and noises appear randomly, so I'm pretty sure its not intentional. The disc itself is new and clean. I'm playing the disc on a Pioneer DV 565 (563).

Does anyone hear it on their copy too or should I return it and get another one?

Later today I'll try to rip it to my harddisc and listen if the scratches appear on the copy as well. It is one of those Copy Controlled discs so I hope it will behave nice with EAC.

Johan

Mine is ok, definately a bad copy. This happened on a new disc? The vendor should swap it out for an identical title.

Your CD is fine, I hear the exact thing on both my speakers and headphones. Some artists like to introduce noise into their recordings like that. I don't like it all but what can you do... I guess they think it sounds cool

My wifes C.D. has the record scratching effects too and the vocals are distorted also.
Now we know it is not just our copy.
Thanks.

I think you should get a new stereo There are definitely old-venyl-record ticks in this track. Quite obvious in the first few seconds of the recording.
