LAME 3.99 New VBR sound artifacting!

After reading all the extensive audio literature on reasons not to use CBR anymore and the new vaunted VBR presets being the recommended I gave it a try. Usually I only went as far as using trusted abr settings and CBR was enough for me.

I used the highest quality settings for 112kbps with bitrate going as low as 96kbps at 44.1khz. My file in certain parts sounded like a mosquito's buzzing. Just horrible! I used old VBR LAME presets and it was fine just like its abr. Then I read that the new VBR may cause artifacts yet it is still highly recommended for usage in LAME 3.99.5! Why?
