Too bad that they didn't bother for 180 grams vinyls concidering that this is Vangelis best album since the Blade Runner. These vinyls are pretty wobbly.
Just go the CD version... and yeah, the distortions on Rosetta at ~2:15 and ~4:11 are present just like on the vinyl version. Same with the loud parts in Sunlight from 2:59-3:40ish.
I hear an other "glitch" on Rosetta at 2:36. To me it sounds like electrostatic noises somehow connected to that guitar sound.
The one on Sunlight is more like an ordinary "going through the roof" type of distortion.
In Mission Accomplie (Rosetta's Waltz) you'll find a pretty nasty one at 1:28 during the string's delayed part.
Perihelion 0:10 + several other "power punch" distortions.
On Elegy you have a constant background noise, like a humming distortion comming from the electric grid. Maybe poorly grounded?
Infinitude - lots and lots of background white noise plus minor electrostatic clicks here and there.
Return To The Void - some background white noise + electrostatic click at 2:15
So there we have it. But still I admire them to stay faithful with its originality and not trying to polish or "clean" the sound in order to hide smaller artifacts.
That would've sounded just as weird. There are some really, really nice tracks and sounds on Rosetta and I love the compositions.
