Scratchy, crackly sounds on a new release album. Unacceptable.

Scratchy, crackly sounds on a new release album. Unacceptable.

Just tried listening to Joe Satriani - Shapeshifting album released today. The third track, All For Love sounds really scratchy and crackly. I thought my amp or speakers were playing up but I tested it again on headphones on my mobile phone and it's the same. The guitar sounds on the 18-30 second mark sound really scratchy. I thought I was paying premium for Spotify and it's really not sounding good lately. Can anyone else confirm it's the same for them?

nope. it's time to move on. Tidal got better quallity than spotify.

Unfortunately, it sounds the same on the CD. Not a Spotify issue, it’s the release.  Disappointed that the mix quality isn’t crystal clear.
