“They really are not looking to it for quality. For quality we have the CD’s and Vinyl and some times Cassette Tapes that the media was originally sampled from…”

Sorry, but you’re misinformed.

1. CDs are actually plastic discs with digital media (zeroes and ones) on them. If you rip these CDs to a lossless format like FLAC or WAV you’ll get the exact quality. An equivalent to the CD would be a memory stick. Just a carrier of digital data.

2. Vinyl is overrated. There are pops and cracks during playback. That supposed warm sound? Call it distorted sound. That’s not audio fidelity. Not counting the portability problem.

3. Lossy formats like MP3 are great if they have a decent bitrate and they are encoded with a strong encoder (like LAME). There are many ABX tests (blind tests) that confirm that most people can’t detect differences between a well encoded MP3 and CD (or FLAC made from that CD). When it comes to technology, humans are usually the weakest link.

The Horrors’ new album is excellent. Much better than the disappointing third Lykke Li album.

The BEST pop album of 2013? I think it’s “Heartthrob” by Tegan and Sara. All killer, no filler.

I admit: my previous comment was a bit too sarcastic. My bad.

Maybe you’re deaf… or you don’t like good music. The problem is yours.

Also Revolution 909.

Human After All, Technologic and Television Rules the Nation are clearly the best songs from HAA. Robot Rock could be better if it had more variation.

Voyager is superb. I listened a lot this song.
