Is this recording lossy sourced?

Hi to all,
I just downloaded a show in FLAC format and compared spectral analysis with a MP3 256k source and it looks identical. Any thoughts?
I've attached screenshots of both FLAC file and MP3 file spectral result.

thanks in advance!

I can see some blockiness in the far upper-right... can you upload a sample (yousendit.com/rapidshare.de)? I'd like to hear it as well.

Hi Five,
thanks for your reply.

here's a sample of the flac version:
http://rapidshare.de/files/18938383/...oans.flac.html

if you want to hear the mp3 version:
http://grindstyle.com/themusic/iron*...osterMoans.mp3

(p.s on both version the song is misslabelled, the title is in fact "Naked As We Came"... and yes there's a digi-flaw at the beginning of the song + it is over-recorded)

anytime...

this one is lossy for sure. it is almost identical to the mp3 version you provided, just a tny bit of disortion in the left channel is the difference. not sure which file has the additional noise, but I would guess the flac version. so, unfortunately, the mp3 is most likely the better of the two sources.

Thank you so much Five for taking the time to help me.
