It was pretty well explained. I guess you missed it.
The tracks were recorded at a lower sample rate then upsampled (arguably a lossless conversion) for mixing.
Many people think there are benefits to giving plug-ins more samples to work with, and the results prove there are definitely differences.

No need to get upset, just listen to the files and take away what you can. *shrug
