I suppose it's the future (which will leave me behind). Downloads for those who want them ...absolutely. But those of us who like physical formats are left out of what is surely something to be beautiful. Why they couldn't be available in SACD is beyond me. And no even though there are few releases SACDs are still being released. I have the 2 DVD-A Workingman's & Beauty and they are wonderful . SACDs of the Studios would have been great. Hope they don't eventually go this route for everything
These remasters are truly stunning. They faithfully retain the original qualities, but with so much more depth and resolution. From an audio perspective they are a large step ahead of anything released in the last several years, even HDCD releases. David Glasser nailed these ones, both new and old.
I am so glad these are only their studio albums, I love audiophile music and If this had stuff like Europe 72 on it, I would be tempted, plus these Albums have already been released in HDCD CD anyway, which sound grate, plus I hate stuff that you have to download.
They all sound great but it makes me realize how much better the band sounds live.
