Great album, unconvinced by HFPA benefit
on 29 December 2013
A great album, although I'm not convinced whether very old albums really benefit from the transition to high resolution audio formats. Certainly it's a shame that a surround version is not on the disc, but then it was never recorded with surround in mind. Nice to have 3 different HD audio formats on one disc, though for most people if playing is stereo there will be no difference (so you may as well play the standard PCM version).
If the music industry are going to get people to buy disc based formats they need to up their game with the packaging... i.e. a full booklet with every disc, lyrics, background, extra info etc. Otherwise we're just getting ripped off... again.
A 320kbps mp3 download version of the album is also included, but why no HD format download in WAV or FLAC?!
