I buy hundreds of CDs, I could easily get them online, I could easily download them free, it's not hard. But I prefer real collections, not -BUYING- DRM-ridden 128 kb/s iTunes music of lesser quality than stuff you could find on the internet for free. If you're going to BUY -DIGITAL- music it better be top notch quality, not what they offer today. Tell me what kind of universe has bootlegs better quality than the 'originals'?
I will never buy a digital CD, it's a scourge. Nothing beats the magic of having a beautiful physical collection of all your favorite music right there for your kids to see. You can't show off an iTunes library... that's just pathetic.
Please listen when I say that. People who buy CDs often know how easy it is to get on the internet, and yes they want to support the band, but paying for an iTunes download is simply a donation.
You quite literally get nothing... you'd get better quality not just downloading a torrent, but even ripping off youtube, after their crappy compression, than what iTunes gives you, because they're greedy bastards who won't go beyond the cheapest, fastest, barely rational file size.
In my opinion, if you're selling an infinite source (digital) then it should be the top quality, being greedy about bandwidth is just being ridiculously over the top greedy, something I would never support.
I have a few of your CDs in this collection too, I browsed across this article off something on facebook, so I'm not your biggest die hard fan, but I do like you guys a lot, and I would hate to see you turn to the digital side, CDs are great. But also, they are getting expensive, all these nice digipaks, Unto the Locust was one of the more expensive CDs I bought, maybe if you found another label that wasn't as pricey perhaps?
But I can really respect this post, just seeing a musician legitimately asking his fans and spilling his mind. Respect it a lot.
