On Facebook SW posted that the album is strictly audiophile quality as it contains no limiting or dynamic compression.
I ordered the deluxe set which was a costly $92 including shipping and am anxiously awaiting it. However I can confirm that the audio quality and album content are superb (perhaps the best audio quality he's had to date) as I've already heard it. Alan Parsons did a fantastic job engineering it.
If you haven't yet heard it (I'm not sure how it leaked so early and don't advocate listening to leaks unless you've already paid for the album) you will truly enjoy it. It's a technical and sonic masterpiece from SW and his band. I'm looking forward to receiving my deluxe set in 40 days from now.
