CJ Chilvers knows his music, so when he streamed Extreme’s Cupid’s Dead he got a surprise:

“I noticed something new in the song “Cupid’s Dead.” Trumpets! I had 30 years of experience with that song. There had never been horns in it. But here they were, being annoying as hell and obscuring Nuno’s incredible riffs.”

I had the same experience with Soundgarden’s ‘Outshined.’

When you’ve listened to a song for THIRTY YEARS you notice the difference, and it’s jarring.

CJ’s “Why I went back to buying CDs (and you should too)” is well worth the time, and makes me want to get back to building my CD collection.
