In fact you get more content when streamed than on CD anyway. Arguably, the article was about music to test your system, not the price of a CD - they even provide Spotify/Tidal links in the article. So, perhaps that's a bit of a distraction?
The point being the musicianship, writing and production techniques far exceed quite a lot of the throw away immaculately presented utter nothingness suggested (promoted?) in the article.
