Lossy > remaster ?

This is from a silver CD I was stupid enough to buy some years ago. Can't really say it much better than the title. Is this a remaster from a lossy source? Or did they just decide to add noise to it for some reason? Is there any other way this could have happened?

Spectral included (EAC zoomed to 5 seconds, I think it's all that's needed in this case)

hi.

buying the disc doesn't make you stupid if you enjoyed listening...

but yes, that is from a lossy source. The low pass filter and missing chunks of audio are unmistakable.

Thanks!

Yeah I know.. but they've done something to it afterwards. Normally it would be black over 15khz and the missing chunks. That's what made me curious.

Now I know this was seeded on dime and was banned for being lossy. The CD I bought was probably that version except incomplete too, so yes it was a rather stupid choise to support this rip-off. Of course at the time I didn't know about TTD or dime.

they've just EQ'd the lossy source, most likely. Amplified the noise.
