I was listening to Dream Theater's "Octavarium" on Spotify today and noticed that the transition between most of the tracks is abrupt, and several seconds of audio have been cut off. This is especially noticeable between Tracks 1-2, 2-3, 5-6, 6-7.
I chalk it up to a bad rip or processing error.
If you own the actual album, or go listen to it on YouTube, the tracks crossfade smoothly.
How do people report ripping issues like this to Spotify staff? I couldn't find anything in the FAQ.
