Hi there, first of all I have bought my own original copy Demon Days by Gorillaz many years ago, however I have recently use dbamppower to rip it to FLAC at level 8. I have also downloaded a FLAC version of the album from piratebay for research purposes. I have noticed that the songs from the piratebay version is compressed by 55%, so my questions is do I lose any audio fidelity in the piratebay version? does it say compressed because it was ripped with a lower level, when compared to my uncompressed ripped version?
Pls ignore the kpbs, I think it's bugged I have use foobar and winamp to check it, and my ripped version is almost two items the size in kpbs of the piratebay's one.
