Distortion on new Michelle Branch CD

Today I listened online to some tracks from Michelle Branch's new CD, "Loud Music." Granted, I've not listened to the actual disc, but all the samples I've heard online are massively distorted.

Has anyone heard the actual disc? Is it as bad as it sounds online? It would be an ironic choice of album title if that's the case.

I do like her music, and was thinking of buying the disc, but I don't want it if it's a crushed and distorted mess.

Anyone?

Imagine that. A CD that is a crushed and distorted mess.

This one sounds particularly bad (online).

Something ironic about Biscoff biscuits being in a package with the word Biscoff on it right? ;p

I wish every album that sounded that way had the word DISTORTION clearly labeled on it.

Kind of like the mandatory ingredients list here in the United States.

MP3 can be unforgiving on certain material BTW. :/

It's actually happened to all of us, where new problems arise upon transcoding.

Something is almost always lost in translation.

Would be interesting to know if the actual CD master has the same issues.
