Neil Young's Bitter Pill
I don't mean to pick on Neil Young especially since he's been one of my favorite musicians for decades (even before Decades) and he's also one of a few high profile musicians leading the charge for better sound quality and away from MP3s but his newest album, Psychedelic Pill is only available in download form as a "Digital Bundle" for $10.99 and this bundle is no bundle of hi-rez joy. Rather its, hold onto your irony board, MP3s.
There's also a 2 CD set ($12.99), a Blue-Ray disc ($18.99), and a triple LP ($79.98). The good news is there's over 85 minutes of new original music from Neil Young and Crazy Horse so I plan to dive in as soon as I decide which package I want to dive into. Eighty bucks for the LP is steep, the CD is CD-quality so maybe its the Blu-Ray then ripping.
Wouldn't it be nice if there was simply a high resolution download? Wouldn't that make sense?
