You are right, DVD is valuable part of the album. I would also recommend to buy the physical album. But if anyone wants to spare money, it is surely cheaper than the CD/DVD set. Other advantage is if you can buy&download only few tracks to try a new artist.
I don't know about quality of Itunes. Is it possible to hear some sample? Until now I mean the best downloadable quality is provided by tradebit.com. There are 1 minute samples from each track, they are of better quality than the samples from amazon.com.
68 MB of iTunes setup and I only wished to play a sample?? As I don't use any i-device, I will not install it. Paulo, can you please compare it with the tradebit.com samples quality? The link is placed in my previous post.

Sorry, I don't think it's necessary to install Itunes, to preview a song, just put the mouse over the number of the song in the track list and click to play the sample.
Incidentally, following the tradebit link you provided, I just found that the album is also available as mp3 320 kbps for download from 7digital UK, US and Portuguese stores (I guess other countries have it too), which I think is a far better option than Itunes.
