Plagued by DRM
on 21 January 2014
This album is wonderful--as in, the MUSIC is wonderful. Metheny's playing and arranging are as flawless as one would expect. However, this album is owned by WMG, who are notoriously horrible with their DRM. As such, I'm unable to even play this album on my computer, let alone rip it for digital storage. Thankfully, I'll get plenty of use of the album in my car, but to me, the purchase of an album should come with the ability to play it on whichever device I please. Despicable.
Such a shame, because I can't give this album a good rating on that principle. My advice to anybody who wishes to play this on a computer: download lossless or 320kbps MP3 recordings. Keep it if you want to give WMG too much money and Metheny's lineup a sliver of the money, but I would feel a lot better about paying for his live performances.
