    What are some things you notice in CD version that you didn't notice before or are more clear

    For me:
    - the strings in I'll Be Gone
    - the guitar? in Castle of Glass
    - the Drums in VICTIMIZED and ROADS UNTRAVELED seem way louder in the mix
    - and finally, LITE just sounds way more epic on the CD version

    The bass in the second verse on In My Remains is a little more upfront. Which is awesome.

    What's up with this Lost in the Echo worshiping?
    It's a good song, but why the hell is everyone so into it? It's a regular Linkin Park song, nothing so special about it. :dafuq:

    Great song. I think it's as close to perfect as you can get. The beats,all three verses,chorus,bridge and ending are all awesome. I get goose bumps when Mike comes back in for his final verse after the bridge. The beat changes a little and it makes everything sound a little more intense!
    But everyone has different taste.

    Because it's :awesome:

    Has great lyrics, great beat and instrumentation, and Mike spits fire. And just everything about it is amazing. It's like an improved style of their old songs which again is :awesome:

    Personally I'd describe it as the epitome of their nu-metal sound when amplified by their newfound electronic influence. It literally stands for everything the band has been in the last 15 years. Everything about it is perfect to my ears in that regard. I can only imagine if it were to have an irregular structure like The Catalyst.

    the only thing that I noticed on the CD was the additional synth melody during the last chorus of BID

    This. It's a good song, and it's a mix of everything. However, I can name 5 better songs from the album.

    All of SKIN TO BONE. Biggest improvement for any song on the CD when considering the iTunes stream rip <-> CD Quality.

    That is all. :awesome:

    Was the difference really so noticeable? I'm beginning to regret my iTunes purchase big time.

    All the songs seem to have a bit more of a punch to them, which is the case most of the time when you actually pop the CD in there. There's a much more clean, and assertive presence of bass. It just makes everything sound much better.

    For some reason, In My Remains and Powerless sound a lot different than the audio from the stream rip I originally had.
