    I'd be very surprised if it wasn't made available in 24/96 given that all the others have been made available recently. I look forward to it!

    In what format are you listening to it?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the music...but listening to this album for the 6th time this evening - with headphones on, rather than via bookshelf speakers - I noticed the crackling more. I'm really surprised by it. The first track is fine but from track 2 on, I notice the crackles and it is such a shame if this is representative of the CD itself. "Chocolate Chip Trip" or whatever it's called actually sounds fine too though and is a very cool instrumental. It might even serve as a useful demo track for showing off gear. Maybe I'll suggest this in that specific thread.

    FLAC. Could you tell me a track and time where you're hearing crackling? I've noticed a tiny amount of tape hiss in some parts but it's certainly not intrusive.

    Btw I've checked the files and the definitely weren't transcoded from a lossy source.

    If their previous releases are anything to go by, I’m sure they will be. All 5 previous are 24/96 on HDtracks

    Sure Cory

    You are hanging out in an obscure audio forum discussing the tiniest details of an Album

    In my best Jerry Springer impression

    "Cory you ARE an audiophile" :) :)

    I was not too happy with the sound quality of the HD release of a Perfect Circles "Eat the Elephant". It is Only 24/48 and the 16/44 version of The Thirteenth Step (Japanese CD ) blows it away in sound quality. I hope TOOL's Fear will sound much better.

    FYI ... A Perfect Circle and Tool share the same lead vocalist , Maynard James Keenan. I don't think he has much input into the SQ though....

    I liked ETE as an album but it was mixed really loud though. When that first piano note hits in track one my first thought is always "#$%^" and turn the volume down LMAO

    Hell yeah that's awesome dude. I've purchased every Tool album there is except Salival and Tales, don't really care to own Tales and I do have a rip of Salival, one of my fav Tool albums for sure.

    Hell ueah shortly after my post I checked and it was available! Was like 941PM local time! Hell I tried to use some codes from one of these shady sites but not of them worked. Wish I’d seen your post beforehand. Oh well it wasn’t but $18, well worth it!
