If you get right up next to a screen window, you can see all kinds of colors through each hole. Well, imagine if all that color had to be reduced to one color per hole. That is what digital recording does to sound. All that gets recorded is what’s dominant at the moment. I would like to hear guitars again, with the warmth, the highs, the lows, the electricity, the vibrancy of “something that’s real”, instead of just a duplication of the dominant factors. It’s an insult to the brain and heart and feelings to have to listen to this and think it’s music
Neil Young, 1992
