This is one of my favorite albums of all time. I’m so glad to have found a good pressing marked down tonight. I’m gonna fall asleep to this and I’m gonna say something snobby, cymbals, crash-ride, hi-hat, all sounds better on vinyl. The sampling on 128-320kbps mp3. or AAC. eats up the brass because that waveform is so tight. Compression takes those sounds and simplifies them, which is fine or sounds with wider waveforms like the sweep of a voice, or the natural oscillation of a vibrating guitar string. It kinda ruins it and leaves that “compressed” jittery sound that you hear on YouTube and CD Rips.
