    Hi,

    Has anyone ever noticed there's a kind of a big mistake on the track Domination on Symphony X's Paradise Lost album? At 3.31 a loud 'plop' is audible. Strange, this apparently escaped the attention of the producer/mixer of the album.

    Greetz.

    Maybe you should check your ears then, it's definitely there. ;-) Listen real careful. Once you've heard it, you'll hear it everytime you listen to the song. It's a very low, banging sound. It's not edgy so therefore you won't hear it immediately but it is definitely there.

    Who cares? Is this really worth creating a thread for.. You must have a lot of time on your hands buddy.

    I don't know I thought this was a common thing there was already threads and people talking about on this board, so they obviously thought it was.

    I still don't really hear it but I'm never really listening out for it.

    It's just that I've never read about this anywhere before. I'm just amazed by the fact that this mistake slipped through while PL without a doubt has been a costly production.

    The holy "thud" has been discussed here before, and we made some amusing guesses as to what caused it.

    It's definitely there ;) and you're right, it is kind of surprising how this slipped unnoticed in the mix.

    Yeah it's there and once you know it's there you can't unhear it. Kind of ruined the song for me. Not that I liked it very much before it.

    Also I'm pretty sure Russell says "beating down the ma'am" in Walls of Babylon.

    Ok It's there I guess, but since it haven't bothered me before, it won't bother me in the future. Not everything has to be so perfect in music. If you look at 70's rock bands, sometimes they are a bit out of tune and there's all kinds of noises at times. Doesn't bother me much again.

    Yes old story for those who were here in 2007. I'm not too bothered by it really.

    When I listen to the album in my car, I hear it loud and clear.
    I usually pump my fist in the air at the same time, lol.

    It's real, sometimes I hear it and sometimes I forget about it, and either way it doesn't bother me.

    true. Alex Lifeson comes in too early at one point durring the chorus in Twilight Zone.

    It sounds like something hit a mic stand.

    It's definitely there. However, I can't hear it on the 5.1 mix. I guess they deleted it :)

    I like subtle messups, adds some Character to the recording. I like knowing the human element is still prevalent.

    I think it's the fart of a fly that was flying near the microphone :)
