Two songs. Lossy or Lossless.

Two songs attached, I have the spectral analyses of them both. What do you guys think?

Re: Two songs. Lossy or Lossless.

doesn't look promising... but not a lot can be determined from such a wide span.

Can you do 2-3 sec snips instead? The things we look for are most noticeable with 2-3 seconds spans...

How about these? I was reading into it and thought Audacity might show better.

Re: Two songs. Lossy or Lossless.

well, it seems lossy, but the best method of viewing these is with Cool Edit Pro / Adobe Audition's spectral view, if you have access to that.

Alright. I downloaded the trial (pretty neat program might have to keep it around). This has every clue you could ever need. I always suspected these were lossy, but I needed a second opinion because these never looked quite right.
