MK Ultra audio glitch / hiccup at 1:03?

I got the album via iTunes when it was first released, and noticed it back then, but thought it was caused by a glitch when I had downloaded the song, and every so often when it shuffles it's way back on to my iPod and I can really listen to it good, I hear it every time.

 

I even tried once contacting iTunes support, they gave me a credit and I tried re-downloading the song, and it's still there. I even purchased it from Amazon download, still there. I've tried Google searches to see if anyone's mentioned it elsewhere and have found nothing (but other than glitch or hiccup I don't know what to call it to fine-tune the search). And even heard it on some YouTube uploads people did.

 

Now it's fallen on my shuffle again, and I really want to get this figured out, and after more useless searches, and even hearing it in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7wN04nYCJA) I'm finally signing up here to post this and see if anyone else has heard this, and is it possible that this is officially part of the song?

 

The glitch is at 1:03 in the song and it's right in when he sings "how much decep*glitch*tion can you take".

Uh that's just the mic failing to pick up a "sh" sound from Matt's vocals correctly.

 

Probably due to blowing air at the mic.

That is what I thought. C's and S's are hard on the poor microphones. :(

 

Never ever thought about it before, had to read your post to find what was supposed to be glitchy about it. On the other hand, I can spot loads of errors in T2L.

That would be a plosive, not sibilance. The latter, is best explained as a resonance, kinda similar to whistling. Microphone choice, placement and processing can emphasize it.

Plosives, which are B, P, T's and all that do blow air at the microphone, but much easier to disguise. If you put your hand about 6 inches away from your mouth and talk at it, you'll get an idea of what it hitting a microphone.

 

Certainly not an "error" or "glitch". De-essing, which is the technique for removing sibilant sounds in recordings can make a vocalist sound like they have a lisp, very common in advertising weirdly.

Quite right.
