Nine Inch Nails Ghosts was released on regular CD, a variety of downloadable formats, and, for collectors, on a high quality Blu-Ray disc. From a review:

This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for: how does a CD @ 16/44.1 sound in comparison to the same content on a BD at 24/96? Will there be a difference? Is there a large improvement? Is high resolution PCM worth the hype without all of this DSD or MLP baloney in between? The short answer is yes.

    I´ve heard that Neil Young was planning to release all his music on BD, bit to see that Trondheimsolistene is releasing a Music BD is just hilarious!
