    I have copy protected cd of this album, and even when I tried my hardest could not remove some artifacts and clicks when I ripped. I used many methods and I just could remove some of them using EAC. Does anyone know how to remove all of them?? When I want to listen to this I have to play it on my CD player and just two songs are included in "The best of" compilation. I really love this album and I hate I can't enjoy it properly in my computer and my cell phone.

    The best of their most recent albums. Mastered WAY TOO FUCKING LOUD, but that's the way they do things these days. I've been in love with Precious since this came out.
