I completely understand a desire for studio versions, but I don't find them better than live versions, they just have different pros and cons. I would adore a studio version but I am also very happy with the current album. I think it was worth every penny, and while it may have the haphazard feel of live music it was also very clearly put together with love, care and thoughtfulness. I don't think people necessarily have to like it, but I think it's a bit harsh and a little demanding to imply an artist didn't put enough effort into their art simply because they didn't necessarily prioritize the qualities we might be looking for.
That being said, I really hope a studio version is eventually available, and RE: an above post, while I did spend quite a lot on AFP merch recently with no qualms, it would be nice to have bundles in the 50$-80$ price range now and then if possible.
