Why do we call it a free gift when pay for it?

yes, if you pay $50, you're paying for the CD.

because you're not paying the 50 dollars for the CD, you're paying for the access to the site, presale codes, etc. I give U2.com a lot of credit this time around to be honest.

Why did it still not come?

I never complain about U2.com, but it is wrong to make fans who have been members since Propaganda and have never let their membership expire wait so long that they start to worry that they may not get the the cd.

Plus, I still just can't seem to navigate that community site without getting frustrated or getting eye strain from the print/background color.

I need a

For those that have already received the CD, how would you compare the sound quality of the songs vs. 128 AAC kbps U2 complete I-tunes versions?

I’m usually not so much an audiophile where only lossless is acceptable, but the original 128 AAC mp3s of songs such as Levitate, Xanax & Wine, etc. were seriously lacking in sound quality.

I chalked it up to the original recordings not being mastered and hence being demo quality.

Was hoping possibly the unreleased/rare Cd would contain noticeably superior sound quality versions of these rare gems.

I haven't listened on headphones yet but I know when I listened in my car it sounded immensely better than the disc I burned from itunes. I was VERY happy. To me it was like hearing new songs, almost as if they'd been rerecorded... I'm not a techie on this stuff but I know when something sounds much much better!

You know what?? I HATE THAT SITE NOW!!, It is so confusing at least the previous setting was easier. I have mail that I don't know how to get in to see, the folders are all within other folders, you have to keep singing in for everything ect.....

I have only one post on there and that was just to test if my post would even show up.

I have been a U2.com member since the beginings of that site and I recall better days and simpler times, They just keep making it more complicated
