METALLICA Beyond Magnetic EP

It's now been confirmed it will be a digital-only EP, obviously containing the four unreleased songs from 'Death Magnetic' premiered at the anniversary shows.

It will be available exclusively on itunes in North America for one week (next week), then will be made available worldwide through most major digital retailers.

This, frankly, sucks.

Yep. Digital only releases are one of the worst things to happen to music.

Agreed. The songs actually aren't bad. Nothing outstanding, but I like them.

I'm fine with digital-only FREE downloads, but yeah, I'm gonna pay you for a file, okay.


(just did that with the Louis CK special but you know what I mean)

I'm still not OK with this part. Give me the option to pay for a CD. It's not like I'm demanding a free CD as well.

I'm not going to miss cds, to be honest. MP3 files are much more convenient. They can't become warped, cracked or worn out over time. They take up zero physical space in your home or car. You can take a massive music collection anywhere and plug into nearly anything with a speaker. It's practically a perfect format, and naturally the lesser format will be phased out in due time.

And people say all the time "but mp3s sound like shit compared to CDs!" I know there is a substantial difference, but I can't hear it for whatever reason.

I don't mind buying a couple CD's that I'll just keep in my car stereo all the time, though.

Truth is, the difference in quality isn't substantial. It's nearly non-existent. The only reason some people claim they can hear a difference is because they WANT to believe it Granted it has to be a legit MP3 file that's been properly ripped, but the files provided by digital music retailers are generally CD quality.

I generally can't tell much of a difference between CD and MP3 but I want a CD for the artwork and when I pay for a product I prefer to get something "real", not just some files. I guess it's personal preference but I can't see why anyone would rather pay for an MP3 album rather than buy a real CD version.
