This track seems to have some nasty clipping - https://open.spotify.com/track/5YoBEhJWkFwT0zsWD2rUst

5:25 - "I'm traveling in some vehicle.." is a good example (Spotify Premium - "high quality" 320 mp3)

Is it just me or is this pretty bad sounding?

Yeah, my only guess is Spotify screwed up the file processing. Now I'm wondering how many other albums are ruined...

If there's ever a set of cataclysmic events that leave me with no other option than Spotify
I might try it

You're not wrong. It does sound bad. I compared it to the iTunes rip i have of the original cd, which does not have the same issue.

One of my favourites of all time. Sacrilege! :(

I've never liked radio in any of its forms. I know what I like and how to find it

I guess I should add what brought me here. Wondering who the hell was hallucinating clipping in Hejira
Then I see they weren't hallucinating,but listening to it on a crap streaming service instead of
TAKING THE TIME TO PULL THAT RECORD OFF THE SHELF AND PUT IT ON A STEREO THE WAY YOU'RE
SUPPOSED TO FOR THE TRADITIONAL NOVEMBER PLAYING OF HEJIRA

respect rituals,people
respect them.

Totally! This is just sad. Don't make us listen to CLIPPED tracks, Spotify!

Does this tie in in any way to the Airing of Grievances?

Exactly, you wont hear this on the LP/CD.
