By that logic we shouldn't have to pay for live albums. After all, surely they don't expect us to pay for songs we've heard before.

We should but not for the same price as the standard album.

 

P.S. I am gonna pirate it anyway

Well it's a demo album with songs from trilogy we already heard. First I was expecting songs like dreamcatcher... from the lost album. I would pay for that.


What lost album?

So what? By that logic Greatest Hits albums and singles releases should also be free.

It would suck if the CD costs $19. That's too much.

I agree.

I'd imagine owning a DVD would be a pretty similar experience.

I don't care about owning CDs (vinyl, baby), but for some reason I have to have the DVD of a movie I like. Not the Blu-Ray; Blu-Rays are too crisp.

It still costs money to make the album and CDs and ship them etc, there's lots of people involved that need to get paid other than just the band. They're in the business of making music and selling it, they're not a charity organisation :P. Plus they've specifically released this album for Record Store Day, to help support independent record stores. If it didn't cost money the stores it's supposed to be helping wouldn't benefit from it.

DVD's don't look as nice as CD's and they are just clutter. Digital is the way for movies.

That's subjective, though. I think that CDs are ugly as hell myself; they're way too small compared to vinyl sleeves, which is the way the artwork was originally meant to be seen for most older albums, and a lot of the time the casing just looks cheap (though the newer cardboard cases remedy that somewhat). Plus, I'm a massive books guy, and DVD cases are just closer to books in terms of dimensions.

I just feel like DVDs are so cheaply made now. Thin, fragile cases and bland colored discs. I feel like I get more in a CD.

If DVDs came with a copy of the screenplay, they would be on the same level as CDs.

There'd be literally no reason for them not to and it's standard practice for them to, so I'd say yes. It's possible there are some shows where they do and some where they don't but aside from the rare show in a bar or a tiny club it'd be very odd for them not to have some sort of feedback on their playing.

There are some really inconspicuous ones out there. If it was a large show it was probably just well-hidden, if it was a small show he might not have needed one.

Excellent point, the lyrics are my favorite part of owning a CD. American Idiots linear notes is a work of art in itself

I mean, it's kind of a stretch comparing them that way. I don't envision too many kids sitting down with their hundred page script and a pair of headphones to memorize all of Ace Ventura's dialogue.

The larger point was just that DVD packaging is sparse, bland and just generally lacking. What do they give you besides a printed menu of chapters and a lineup of the production company's other movies that they want you to buy?
