Anachronistic Trick

For $30, this trick isn’t the cheapest one in the book, but it’s already done the job of snagging some attention for one of the hardest working bands in rock ‘n roll.

While many industry insiders get their new releases in oddball packaging to keep ’em off the ‘net for a little bit longer, the band explains that at this point in their career, “We’re kind of more worried about being ignored than being ripped off.”

I admit that I haven’t heard the album, but I’m curious:  How would this sound, on a nice vintage hi-fi in a faux-oak paneled basement, as compared to the mp3 version on the computer in front of you?

I’d rather surrender myself to the shag-carpeted comfort of the former.
