Yep - plays through by Panasonic blu-ray player just fine so whatever is wrong with the disc, it's only detected by my Oppo. A pity since my Oppo sounds better but I'll live with it. I agree with the comments about the limitations of the master - some of the mixing is a bit...fraught? I don't know. It's as if not everything is in balance. Regardless, the mastering brings out great details and makes the sound so natural to my ears. As others have pointed out, the guitar playing on Helplessly Hoping is shockingly real.
