Excellent Album, Horrible MP3 Quality
on 31 October 2015
This review is for Amazon's MP3 download of the album. The audio quality is really bad, embarrassingly bad for 2015. Some tracks have a bit rate of 190kps, which brings me back (not in a good way) to those Napster days of the early 2000's.
It's a double shame, because this album is so rich, and the acoustic instrumentation is so gorgeous, that hearing it through this papery sound makes me feel like I sinned by not buying the CD proper.
Amazing album--but buy the CD or the vinyl, ideally from your local record store. It is the last MP3 download I'll buy from Amazon until they commit to decent quality (320kps) audio. I recommend you consider the same.
