This is the most bizarre account of how for some reason my company take home truck (2014 F-150) has some issues with the ending of the awesome Clockwork angels CD (yes I know CD's are like supposed to extinct). To give a brief epilogue, My beloved company has me driving from Tampa (fl) to Orlando (fl) every weekday. So I have 60-90 minutes each way (some times worse) to think about that I am going where I should instead of where I want. Anyhoo the best promotor of good construction thought waves just happens to be Rush music. So with this wondeful fringe benifit by bieng able to spin alot of discs during the course of a week I can look over some other discrepancies(different topic post lol). So I have my eclectic rotation in its transitory state. Then I get around to slipping in Clockwork Angels and setteling in for some enjoyable construction thought lubrication. Around Halo Effect a slight crackle/static starts in the back ground I do have the system thumping as any audio tester of construction thought lubricatin should! I make sure everything is working at "peak" performance to keep the thought process going. By the time the Wreckers is on a loud level crackle/static very present, By BU2B2 unbearable!! I cannot even hear The Garden over the static,snap,crackle & pop(s) which is terrible because I love that song. Now I am thinking is the primordial cd spining/reading mechanizim thingie in distress??  I play many cd's with more songs and way more time EG; Chronicles and assorted Retrospect discs on this truck cd player and no static at all. I can take the Clockwork Angels cd and play it any other cd player (including the $7 dollar one in my work shop that I bought in a pawn shop)  and the disc playes perfect! It is the most strange  $#!T... I know if it was a truck I paid for I would send it Back and say it was possessed!! Some awful, evil subroutine program plot planted by the Rolling Stone (well at least the factory audio system) all of Ford may not be infected (yet). I am going to try to fool this audio Chupecabra! I don't want to say it too loud but I am going to format  the C***KW**K A*g*L* *D to mpE (wink wink) and sync through my cell phone. I just hope I can keep an eye on the road while this potential Fray begins. All I can say isTooo Wierd...

Weird. I know some more modern CD's can have some playback issues in older players that are put in cars, but I have never heard of anything like that. For me, the only two problems I have had is that a bunch of Blank discs I bought for mixes would replace the bass (not the guitar, but the thump-thump kinda stuff) with clicks in certain cars, and I own one CD that was published by a record company that otherwise has no flaws with their CDs, yet this one particular one refuses to play in my car, and my car alone.

By The Way, CDs are not dead. So long as someone wants a package that contains: Physical Artwork, good quality music, car playback, and an ease of sharing the media, CD's are the best format. Vinyl covers the first two categories, and regular online distribution can cover the last two, but the CD gets all four.

I occasionally do the digital download for music, but as long as CDs are produced for my favorite artists...I will buy them.  :codger:

So I have a new chapter to this story and I believe Ford CD players do not like Clockwork angels even more than the 1st time. My company issued a new 2016 F150 to me. Got it at the end of the day Yesterday. Knowing the issue I had with my other trucks CD player, 1st thing this morning I put in Clockwork Angels. By the title track (Clockwork Angels) track 3 (this time)the annoying static starts. I was so depressed I just shut it off in disbelief! As I mentioned last year the CD I have of this album plays flawlessly in every other CD player I put it in. It is not smudged or scratched and is in like new condition as I care very much for my :rush: CD collection. This is too weird!! It also sucks as Clockwork Angels is awesome music to ease on down the road with. As is all :rush: music.
:huh: :crazy:
