To my ears the 112kbps stereo version of Absolute sounds very punchy, louder and with more bass than the FM version. Maybe it's processed to sound superficially more impressive but at the expense of...

I think "bulb" refers to the setting on older film cameras marked "B" which effectively kept the shutter open as long as you wanted. You wouldn't use a flash bulb to photograph passing cars etc, but...

They don't know. The reviewer is speculating, just as anyone else who listened might have done, whether Everett would have been playing Coldplay if he'd been broadcasting today.
