Horrid 'bomb like preecho' artifacts throughout 2:40 - 3:20, sounds like a more softer version of eig. I will upload a sample of this track during the weekend.

Obvious disortion at 2:29, due to preecho being caused by sharp transients.

LAME 3.98.4 at -b 320. Also those artifacts appear on LAME 3.97 at V2 --vbr-new as well.

Would you mind testing latest LAME 3.99a14 ?
It contains changes for LAME's CBR mode.

I have done a quick test with LAME 3.99a14 (64bit), and I found no improvement from 3.98:
