I'm fine with free downloads, but I wish they would give me the option to pay for a CD as well. It's Metallica, they simply can't lose money on any sort of set of unreleased material. I can understand a smaller band not wanting to take the risk of replicating CD's that may not sell, but Metallica don't need to worry about those sort of risks.

I'm with the Brit. I really hate digital download ONLY albums. It makes all the sense in the world and I should love them, but I just don't.

As far as the quality difference goes, it depends on the bitrate. 160 and lower and you'll notice quite a difference, but when you get higher, it's much less noticeable. Since the EP won't be free, it better be 320 or even better, available in FLAC format.

I actually got a $15 itunes card as a gift today, so I'll be buying this EP, and also the Megadeth album The System Has Failed, one of the two Megadeth albums I don't already have.

Regarding the digital vs. physical issue, to me it doesn't matter as long as I am getting an official edition of the music. The only thing I'm against is music sharing sites such as limewire, napster, etc...

For once I agree with something you say

I'd bet they're going to put it out as a Vinyl EP, probably including a CD in there, so don't get your panties in a bunch.

The audio difference between MP3 and CD is completely negligible at higher bitrates (noticeable at 128kbps but once you hit 320 you can't honestly tell me there's an audible difference). I'm ok with digital releases for bands that aren't exactly well known and can't completely afford to press a full release for us all to buy, especially in the current music climate. However for a band like Metallica to do a digital-only release is pretty unacceptable.

I'm pretty sure that these tracks are just rough cuts, not fully mastered which is probably the main reason they decided to pass on a CD release.

This. They are the rough mixes. Not mixed, from March 2008. Quality is still pretty good.
