    Where are the Digital Deluxe albums to download?!?!? The site said they were available from spoontheband.com. But I didn't see them! Even on the Spoon store they weren't there! Where are they? If someone did find them tell me how are they? I would be interested in the FLAC files, because I hate file compression. MP3s suck if you ask me.

    I just figured it out.....you click on the "OUT NOW" on the add of the deluxe digital. Well now that I know how to get to it. People who purchase it, let me know how it is! Is the sound quality very evident? Can you put the lossless audio in CD?

    If you're putting these lossless tracks into an audio CD, doesn't that defeat the purpose of buying the digital albums? I'm no audiophile-expert-person, but I thought the reason people like having high quality lossless tracks is so they can just listen through their computers or iPods (or whatever portable music player you might use)

    I reeeeeeaaaaaalllllyyy want to buy that Deluxe Package combo, but I think I might just get the #2 combo because I really want those videos that come along with it. And I need those t-shirts.

    Damnit I'm going to be broke again.

    I believe the videos come with the albums no matter what combo you get. The Deluxe Package will have them as well.

    I'm sorry, were you looking for an excuse not to spend as much?

    Well the new deluxe digital albums are uncompressed files at 320 Kbps. Standard MP3s, (anything on itunes) are at 128 kbps. So there's actually a big difference. So depending on the version you get FLAC, or "Lossless Apple" files when put on a CD would be higher quality. I still like CDs sometimes. Like in my car, places like that where you can't play vinyls.

    It's only on the #2 album combo that says "All four bonus live videos from 2006 in Austin, TX at La Zona Rosa."

    If you buy an individual album, it only comes with one of the live videos. I wonder why the #3 Deluxe combo doesn't have the videos listed in what's included.

    I just tried buying something right now, and I don't agree with the way the purchasing goes on that site- I wanted to buy both t-shirts, but it's only letting me do one purchase at a time. There's no "shopping cart" option (like on the Musictoday store site) so I have to buy each shirt separately, and have shipping and handling fees on each one. That doesn't seem right to me.

    wait a minute, It was probably the ACL aftershow....oh and um they should've been rollin' out vinyls. Wilco is banking on me right now with reissues.

    can anyone tell me if the videos are from an acl pre/after show or a regular gig. I went to the one in Feb. of 06'. I don't want to own all these songs 3 times over.
