While annoying to those of us who already own the album, the mix is so much better on this "seeds" version than on the original release that, if you care about sound quality, it's worth buying Way to Normal a second time. As a "taste test" I downloaded Free Coffee and Effington; the difference when compared to the original release, particularly on Free Coffee, is astounding. On "seeds," Ben Folds' vocals are much more up front, the bass more impactful, each instrument is given more "space" – the mix is simply superior. (However, if you listen to music mostly on cheap-ish headphones or your computer's built-in speakers, then it's probably not worth buying the album a second time – it will be much harder to tell the difference.) The iTunes version does not have the GarageBand-ready tracks mentioned in the official iTunes review, but that's only consequential if you are interested in creating your own mix, substituting your vocals for Folds', etc.
