Check this out:

ALL the existing digital formats are screwed! The compression, the clipping!

Quoting my buddy Danny:
"The sound engineers should be shot.
Out of a cannon.
Into the sun."

LP (DR10):

HiRez (DR5):

BluRay is ok:

I have to agree. But have a listen to the Apple Music Atmos verion mixed by Steven Wilson. It's wonderful.

All ears are awaiting the BluRay release, there should be a stereo track in there somewhere, maybe it has at last the same dynamic as the one on LP.

I wonder if the band is aware.

Just heard the album for the first time. It's not 'Sowing the Seeds' or 'The big chair', but it doesn't deserve to be butchered.

The Bluerays were sold out long ago. They only did 2,000 copies.

There is one on Ebay, current bid is 101€, still 4 days to go.

My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

Piracy, it seems, is my only option.:oops:
