I vote ... NO!
...but mostly this.
I mean I guess that I respect them as businessmen and marketing-geniuses for hustling a bunch of kids into giving them way too much money... Though I don't personally find enjoyment in their music.
Most importantly though, there's no way they need to spend that much money to make a great sounding record.
If you wish engage me in an argument about this: Fuck off I don't care about your receipts showing that you spent eight grand on the best audiophile equipment so that you could "hear the beautiful intricacies man". I don't give a care, you blue rats. I just record music from YouTube with my USB microphone after my friends upload 128kbps mp3 files there and just put it on my iPod and use the default iPod headphones (because I'm not a fag).
