The Unforgettable Fire - Digital Album - FLAC
This digital album is available in DRM-free, high fidelity FLAC format. Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format for lossless audio data compression. During compression, FLAC does not lose quality from the audio stream, as lossy compression formats such as MP3, AAC, and Vorbis do. An extracted FLAC file sounds identical to the original source (44.1 kHz, 16 bit stereo).
FLAC files are much larger than MP3, will take longer to download, and require more disc space to store.
FLAC playback support in portable audio devices and dedicated audio systems is limited at this time and will require decoding to play on iPod and all MP3 players
