I dont ever crave to listen to it on record or live. But every time ive heard it in person....ive always loved it.

The version from 10/16/13 (WOR2) was pretty good. Best I've witnessed. I'm kind of excited about this one as I've always preferred this album to riot act.

Still haven't heard any difference. Can someone post a link to something where you can really hear it? Thank you.

i heard that if you play the new mix and the original mix at the same time, it creates a whole new album. like Zaireeka.

Are you listening through your external phone speaker?

I have used my phone, but both with quality headphones, and through the speaker. Only on Spotify though, and it may be different here in Europe, than in the US.

It's probably a regional thing. Did you download the new mix on the link above?

It might be a subtle difference to some people's ears.

It's the exact same mix, just a different mastering.

Subtle, but noticeable if you are familiar enough with the original version.

I listened to it once while doing other stuff and didn't notice anything. Then again on headphones a could hear the difference. So it's minor but there if you're familiar enough and listening.

You guys are nuts. It's profound with headphones, and noticeable even in a car.

is it wrong for me to say that the guitars in life wasted feel more naturally crunchy...as if the actual tone of the guitars, amps, and pedals are more straight ahead and authentic?

It is not wrong to say.

And Ed sounds less pinched, like he's reaching an octave too high

The watery, lossy compression artifacts from the Spotify stream give it a special warmth and flavor that I can't put my finger on.

One positive: we have a Google Home, and we stream Spotify on it all the time--mostly songs from Moana for my daughter, but I will occasionally throw on a new release and listen to it for the first time there. By the time I get a better digital copy or buy the LP--wow!--it's like listening to it for the first time, again.

I don't understand people who don't have a better way to listen to music than spotify on a $25 bluetooth speaker.

Spotify is fine. Its the idiots who listen through the apple ear buds.
