And I can’t stand mp3 downloads…:-)
especially at itunes lovely 256 kbps…almost an insult to sell Shpongle at that resolution
I’d hate for this to devolve into a format/audiophile argument, but Shpongle sounds great at pretty much any bitrate, it’s Shpongle. Back in the days of Napster/WinMX/Soulseek I discovered Shpongle as 128kbps mp3’s and it sounded great just because it was new, different, and actually creative. Buying the CD’s only made it better. I know for many purists nothing less than an original CD/vinyl will suffice, but for many an mp3 is “good enough” (especially for the unwashed masses that use tinny earbuds.)
That being said, I’ll happily buy it from the iTunes store just to hear it, and again as an actual CD to have a physical copy. The music coming from Twisted is certainly deserving of that.
