Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Also, I just noticed that both the vinyl and CD versions have a rather noticable skip around the 4:11 mark.

(Well actually, the vinyl and Spotify versions)

Haven't heard a vinyl rip yet, but no skipping on the CD that I can hear in the first track at 4:11...

Whoops, forgot to mention the actual track name >_>

Talking about the title track "Rosetta".

No skip either, but there is a click betwee 4:12 and 4:13 which is not a skip from what I can see in the spectral frequency. But it's odd that the album has a couple of these errors non the less.

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.

The Spotify version also contains those issues, but since the Spotify master is full of LOUDNESSWAR anyway, it can be ignored from now on. ;P

I think it's definitely a shoddy master that's to blame here.

Bit of a shame because the Dynamic Range is insane for these days.

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.

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.

^ L’Apocalypse Des Animaux in that boxset has the last track as the first track, that alone is a huge screw up. Because of the flow of the album.
Without faith nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

It also lists The Friends of Mr. Cairo, so it's probably just a mistake ;)

Well for 13 CDs I find it a great deal! Maybe I'm just comparing to the ridiculous price of the Oxygene trilogy bozset...

I'm definitely interested in that box. I only have 1 album from that box (Antarctica) so this will be the best moment to get the others too.
