CommentNo or near null compression. Totally different from 24-44.1 release. Edit, from another user: I do have a problem with that release. When going myself to its page (http://www.qobuz.com/fr-fr/album/the-essential-michael-jackson-michael-jackson/0827969428726) and attempting to download track 16 from CD2 (You Are Not Alone (Single Version)), I get the following readings: left right Peak value: -0.31 dB --- -0.67 dB Avg RMS: -10.63 dB --- -11.41 dB DR channel: 7.35 dB --- 7.79 dB ----------------------------------------------- Official DR value: DR8 So I'm allowing myself to be quite sceptical for this particular case. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to purchase the entire album to get that magical "uncompressed" release? If anyone can confirm or infirm my thoughts, please let me know. This would be very nice indeed as this would solve this rather baffling mystery. Regards (sorry for my uncivilized, but this really tipped me off and I couldn't let it go) Note from another user: It includes the real 7" remix version of Human Nature! (despite it being labeled as Album Version)
