View Full Version : Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood

God damnit I'm getting fucking pissed off with this song! I downloaded a copy from this asshole on the net which is 13Mb, and there's a skip at around 3:42. And the stupid motherfucker has it listed as Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood (From CD - Not Fuzzy) as if it's a good thing. I'd take a little fuzz over a bad skip any time :mad:

It's completely beyond me how some people can care enough to encode a song at 320kbps but be stupid enough to turn off error protection on their ripper.

I've got that song, and it's absolutely perfect. (as far as I can tell) :)

Did it ever occur you you that the problem might be at *your* end, and that there was a glitch in the download?? Either way, download it again, instead of bitching about it here......

Maybe they are foolish enough to use AudioGrabber instead of CDex (http://cdex.n3.net)....

The best way to pad your posts is to bitch about stuff you have control over;)

1) I have downloaded the 13Mb file from 3 different people and the skip occurs always at the same spot.
2) I have found a 192kbps version of it that seems to be perfect as far as skips go, but the flanging is absolutely unacceptable (must have been done with the infamous Xing encoder).
3) I have the video too - I DivX compressed it and normalized and recompressed the audio - now it's only 14.5Mb as compared to the 40Mb original file. For a video, especially such a small one, it's pretty impressive. However I do not wish to use the audio from it because it is a little over-sampled (loud parts like the genies voice don't sound quite right) and has the sound-effects, of course.
4) For christ's sake, Audiograbber is not inferior to CDEX as far as quality goes. I'm an audiophile and I've been using AG for 2 years now and never had a glitch from bad ripping.

LOL :D You're so mean-spirited, ethan_h ;)

Btw, NeoRenegade, you're not paying for anything here. Nothing to bitch about then.

I'm going to buy the CD later this week. And then I'll rip it and give the MP3 a long-ass filename saying how it's not fucked up and how everybody else who has the song is a butt-burglar :D:D:D

Idiots share fekked up MP3s

Hey peeps, if you really care about rip quality, you should use EAC (www.exactaudiocopy.de), since it's the only ripper that does secure rips.

NeoRenegade
12th June 2001, 01:09
No, that's just their claim. A claim to go with the name.
And it's false.

Why do you say that?

Why is it false?

Why would he say that if it wasn't true, he's certainly not making any money from it... :confused:

*sigh* he probably says that b/c like everyone I know he has his opinion and then everybody else has thiers....

A few of our members have found eac to be a little crazy when it comes to secure.

Can you link up a thread with complaints? I tried searching, but couldn't find anything... :confused:

Well it's evident that Neo refuses to back up his allegations regarding EAC secure rips, so as far as I'm concerned there's no validity to them.

We have found from our members that the last track copy on a few hcd discs left the last track a blank and no hcd included.http://www.btinternet.com/~skmoseley/smilies/professor1.gif

Do you mean when someone tried to copy a HCD (I assume hyper-cd)? EAC isn't meant to rip non-wav data AFAIK.

Although I was kinda harsh in my previous post... apologies if i upset anyone.

Anyway, EAC works fine for me, so I'll continue to use it :D

Hey buy the F-For-You-Know-What CD... To me, MP3 hasn't been developped in the purpose of stealing artists music, but to ba able to listen to music with other medias...

Besides, 90% of the napster dudes don't have a clue about how to rip correctly a CD. Downloaded songs from Napster just suck.

CD rulez. mp3PRO rulez. Winamp rulez.

yep, when it's all said and done, buying the CD and ripping it yourself is usually the best way to go.

NeoRenegade
21st June 2001, 13:45
Yep.

And as far as my claims about EAC go, I back down...

But I still remember it being said that EAC is the only CD Ripper that copies the tracks perfectly without skipping or popping or crackling of any kind.
I mean, come on — even WMP can rip like that provided you have error protection turned on!

Strange how people can react in the matter downloading MP3.
I do it i must admit. but most times the songs wont last long. And the ones that do, are re-mixes most of the time.
