My The Next Day fatigue
Tony Visconti - after two months I can't even listen to The Next Day:-
(wait for it through cans.
And believe my I've tried.
The initial iTunes audio stream was absolutely atrocious;
The 256 bit iTunes masters were only a little better.
Yeah - I rushed out and got the CD
i I ripped them lossless,
but still my tired ears complain;
In desperation I paid for the music again:-
the official 24 bit masters at
A little better again, but still compressed beyond comprehension.
Mr Visconti - I know the iPod changed almost everything,
and today almost everything is sampled on phones.
I know the tin buds of iEverthing s
can't handle a real dynamic range.
But - Listen!
Even today, the punters buy "Heroes" on CD or iTunes,
the hear the music live and breathe,
hitting the highs
healing the lows
and I love that.
Is it too much to ask for an audiophile edition,
for all the loyal guys and gals who love David's music?
People who treasure the decades of David
Who don't think earbuds are good enough,
Would would like to hear a wonderful piece of music
Day In, Day Out
without straining to hear David's voice of the mix.
Is that too much to ask
The 24 bit cuts are still hopeless compressed,
Why is that? Please explain.
Tony, the 24:44.1 masters of Station to Stare are pure heaven.
In the mean time I play TND on good speakers
at Maximum Volume.
