What the hell are you listening to?

I didn't rip these flacs myself. I should rip one and compare. Signal path is the same.
Actually maybe to test this even better would be to play the CD from a computer optical drive into your sound system vs a freshly ripped flac played in the same audio software to your sound system (play the CD in foobar/play the FLAC in foobar)

This would remove the potential superior nature of the DAC inside a consumer CD audio deck (if you are playing in one of those) and make the signal path even more aligned for your test.

Bonus points: get a friend to blind you and not tell you which one he is playing
Bonus Bonus Points: get more friends to do it and blind THEM so it's not even just you doing the judging

This was such a fun listen y-day while working - totally put me in the right mood. Never heard of this label/these artists - but the code to download the album and add to my bandcamp basically slipped out of another vinyl record I bought (so must be affiliated somehow with label/artist I know)

Your mileage may vary from "sacrilege" to "omgz!"

for me this is just a soothing meditation on the original - needed a mood lifter today

Wow - this Max Lessig kid just approached the label runner out of the blue. Everything he's put out on Frank has been gold. Albeit - that's 4 tracks, but 4 wonderful, emotionally mature and soulful tracks. His latest to close on part 2 of the 10 year compilation is great:
