Shpongle?
    #1238568 - 01/22/03 04:08 AM (21 years, 1 month ago)

I have never listened to any Shpongle before, but plan on buying one of their albums... Which one do you guys suggest for a virgin Shpongle listener?

If you can't afford both of them at once, I would probably steer you to their first,
"Are You Shpongled?". IMO it is a little more electric, while the second has a little more ambience.
What are you listening to now?

im getting a little pissed now because I went into Circuit City at 2 different locations, a sam goody, numerous FYEs and a borders bookstore and NONE of them had any sphongle...... i downloaded a few but I am a firm believer that cd quality is better.

256 or 360 is merely a step dwon from CD quality.

CD quality on albums as great and profound of shpongle cannot be overstressed.
you MUST own the CDs for this brilliant piece of work. the audio quality hits you much clearer. I have a high quality sound system, worth over 2 grand. The quality is obviously noticeable from mp3 to CD.

CDs are simply better. Any transformation from CD to any other media is inherantly cutting quality.

buy the CDs.

WMA format at 320 or 256 is better than CD quality which is apx equal to 192 WMA format. I have an old Pioneer tube driver reciever and the sound that comes out of it is soo beautiful. What kind of system do you have?

I agree with Major_Buzz, "Are you shpongled?" is definately the better of the two..

Had two burnt copies before buying the two on cd, and yep, there's no substitue for quality!!

I havnt heard all of "Tales of The Inexpressible", but from what I have heard I'd say "Are You Shpongled" is better IMO. I couldnt find them anywhere either - and I looked in every freekin CD store I saw for the last 6 months. I guess I'll have to buy it online for 20 or more dollars.  :frown: At least its a CD worth it!

256k quality isnt better then CD and even if it were converting your CD's to MP3 isnt going to improve the quality no matter how expensive of a system you have or what bitrate you convert too. Converting to MP3 can only degrade the sound quality.

You do not make sense: You can't surpass cd-quality with these albums unless you have access to Simon Posford's hard-drive.... the CD is encoded at CD-quality - how can you rip a cd and end up with something HIGHER than cd-quality? Maybe I just don't understand this audio technology, but from what I know; this is impossible.

Regardless, I just listened to "Are You Shpongled?" on my first high dose of ayahuasca last night, and holy fuck that was incredible :smile: This is a very thought-promoting audio production, to say the least.

MP3 and WMA are lossy formats, therefore they can't be better than CD quality. You do lose something in the compression, that's why it's called a lossy format.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

I was just posting info directly from WMP, under the copy music options it states that 48KPS is near CD quality and 96KPS is CD quality, therefore anything above would be better than CD quality. I personally use 192 KPS becasue this is equal to more than 320 KPS MP3 format.

oh rofl now I see where you are mistaken.

Its referring to KPS, not kBps.....

anyway, even if you ripped a CD at "higher" than cd-quality, it wouldn't sound any better than the CD.. it can't.

woooo!!!!

So how many times have you listened to it? Are you going to trip on it? Be ready for hyperspace if you listen to that album on shrooms buddy :smile:

Thanks for buying it -these guys deserve more money so as to make the next Shpongle even more amazing.

Check out Tales of the Inexpressible for a completely different direction taken with these wild synths and layered effects.
