22 minutes devoted to highlighting that low quality music is bad, wow. What a waste of time.

Mike Shinoda is actually a pretty intelligent guy when it comes to sound, regardless of your opinion on his band's music.

Why isn't there a documentary about terrible bands/musicians/producers/engineers who flood the market with shit?

High fidelity or not, I'm not sitting through a Slash album.

This is a waste of time, highly NOT recommended. This isn't a "documentary," documentaries should be
unbiased - this has an agenda. It's meant to sell high end audio equipment and while this isn't
entirely a bad thing; ( I enjoy listening to dynamic recordings on high fidelity equipment too) I'm
not stupid enough to believe that just because audio is compressed that it is unlistenable. Short of
maybe some classical music, it's undoubtedly compressed during studio mixing for God sakes!

It's called transparency and high bit-rate compressed audio can easily be transparent to the source.
Why not recommend doing some back-to-back listening tests and giving knowledge to the consumer to
empower them to make the right choice instead of just saying that all modern music is sacrilegious
to the artist. This "documentary" has a very poor plot, it's a shame that such a wonderful idea had
such a poor execution.

Andrew Scheps helped engineer and mix Death Magnetic...how the hell is he allowed to comment on sound quality?
