On "The Prophet's Song" at 1:39-1:41, the word "hand" (as in "summoned by your own hand") always jumps out at me as sounding bad. It sounds like when a cassette deck needs its heads demagnetized, and things sort of play at a pitch that's not quite right. That part never did sound perfect on any other copy of ANATO so I thought maybe it's supposed to be that way and now it's just clearer, but it really irritates me when I hear it....

I know what your talking about, but I think it's just an awkward pitch that registers in the ear in a, as you described, distorted way.
