From listening to some of the previews on the HDtracks site, you can hear a little bit more separation between the instruments; everything is clearer and more pronounced. I'm going grab these as soon as I can!

Its pretty cool, it sounds louder than the original and it sounds more clear too. It doesn't sound as distorted as the original, you can actually hear the instruments more clearly. :) They also have the trilogy for sale too and 21st CB. But I only got American Idiot. :)

I have the HD Tracks version and it actually sounds quieter  :lol:

The YouTube version would be compressed and pointless

Yup, as a matter of fact I already did a test video for Youtube. The only thing you'll hear from the new tracks is the TV in Homecoming. The HD sound would indeed be lost.

was going to post about the vinyl but got beat to it. i read about it somewhere but forgot then was listening through earphones a few weeks ago and the tv surprised  me. just because i have listened to the album so many times and it came out of nowhere.

I haven't bought any of them, but honestly, the only difference I'm hearing from the previews is they're very clear. I mean, it's still basically everything you hear on the CD release and every other "compressed" release, but it just sounds more clear and has a little bit more headroom.

Yeah the whole tv thing in Homecoming is the only new thing added I guess. It caught me completely off guard cause I was listening to it and had my tv going at the same time. I had to go back and double check lol. If they release Dookie this way, that would be an instant buy for me. :)

Don't notice the difference really. 

There might be plenty of reasons for that, you might have a crappy audio system, maybe you listened through apple earphones or maybe you're just not an audiophile.

i think the trilogy would have been better if it sounded like the hdtracks.. i really enjoyed the previews.. i remember during the summer someone posting a link to a written piece with examples all about the american idiot hd versions and the differences between the regular album ..pretty cool shit im sure this part was said already..

TV thing was the most prominent thing I noticed, I got it all in FLAC, but I generally don't like the format, it's no different than 320mp3 anyway unless you have audio gear for a shit ton of money. And even then I don't see the worth.

I didn't think I'd hear the difference but I do! I love it; it sounds so much clearer. If I wasn't saving my money I would actually buy it.

Anyone here have the trilogy from this site? I would like to know if the difference in audio is as noticeable as American Idiot is! Which I happen to be REALLY enjoying :)

Listening to the previews I can say I can hear the greater dynamic range, but they are horribly distorted (which I'm assuming is an affect of the online streamer, rather than the masters). I'd prefer a downloadable full quality sample of the album in order to judge the quality, rather than the poor quality streams. I'd love to get all of the albums in HD though; I'm certainly an audiophile.

they are a little clearer. having more clarity may be a better way to put it.

you can hear the non compressed aspect of it in that the softer parts are truly soft and the louder parts are truly loud. you can tell this volumewise rather than everything more or less being relatively the same volume like the normal release

but otherwise homecoming is the only song ive heard so far thats different from the original (those radio bits in the bridge)

As I mentioned in the topic about the release of these HDtracks versions, these voices really freak me out when I listen to this version, always comes unexpected since I'm so used to the normal version.

Just listening to Homecoming. I like how the line "waste a night or two" has a little echo tail in this version.

Its really awesome they came out with this HD version. For me American Idiot will always the best Green Day album ever. This just makes it even more spectacular, hearing the perfect album the way it was meant to be heard. :)
