"... thankfully favours songs over jamming, but there’s a casual profundity to tunes like Fight Outta You and Say You Will that a more complicated process might’ve squelched. Just add applause. B+."
- Entertainment Weekly

"The performances sound confident and natural, not forced, lazy or merely naked ... the simple attractions in the modest arrangements ... hold up, even bloom, with repeated listening ... Harper was born to make records like Lifeline."
- Rolling Stone

Recorded direct to analogue tape in one week at the end of a long world tour, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals's top 10 release Lifeline was an effort to recreate the energy of their acclaimed live show. Many of these songs were written on the road and worked out in sound checks before being committed to tape in a Paris studio. The instrumental track Paris Sunrise #7 garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.

"I had always wanted to make a record in Paris ... because it's Paris. And I had always wanted to make a record directly coming off of a tour. It just makes sense. You've got all your best equipment and your musical abilities are never as sharp or as heightened as when you've been consistently on the road ... Lifeline was recorded and mixed in seven days on a 16 track analogue tape machine. There were no computers or Pro Tools used anywhere in the process."
- Ben Harper

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
