I pre-ordered my deluxe version via Amazon....it arrived last night. Totally worth the extra cash, I love the packaging. It is a little ridiculous to assume someone who buys 180gram vinyl in a deluxe package will be happy with mp3 as their digital copy. I did the same thing you did and *ahem* "found" a flac copy.
I felt the same way about the music during the first listen...I have the thing on relentlessly now though :)
