  • OT - Resurgence of vinyl

    Something I've noticed lately - the last 10 or so bands I've seen play on either Letterman or Conan Obrien have been introduced by the host holding up an LP. Letterman always quips "time to go out and buy yourself one of those big cd players"

    I, for one am really glad they're doing this - the more current stuff we get pressed on vinyl the better

    Yep. I'm a fan of vinyl, myself.

    Expect some folks to come in here real soon to tell you about how CD's never get scratched, never skip, and aren't quite as crappy as mp3's (they're right about the last part, btw).
    Pigpen said it was OK!

      The groovy kids like the vinyl. CDs are for squares.

        One cool thing bands are doing (and I think our band is going to do) is sell vinyls with download cards, so that kids can get a vinyl but also put the songs on their ipod. I would love to see kids really get into vinyl.

          That is pretty damn cool.

          I bought Wilco's last album on LP, and it came with a CD of the album.

                The last few record I bought came like that.

                That obviously went over your head, so I'll break it down for you. I'm not a retard, though, but thanks.

                Vinyl doesn't get scratched and skip (the first two criticisms to always come up about vinyl) if you're not a retard, either. But if it does, somehow, unlike CD's, it doesn't ruin the entire album, just the part that's scratched.

                    Well, that doesn't make a damn bit of sense.

                    Nor does it have anything to do with the discussion at hand, unless your position is that technology is ALWAYS a good thing, or if you think ours is that it's ALWAYS a bad thing.

                    Thinking in absolutes never comes to a good end, though.

                      IMO, that's the way to do it. That's what i want to do with my CD when/if it ever sees the light of day. Sadly though, I only know about 15 people my age with a record player.

                        I have a lot of records, but I don't have a good enough record player or system to make the gains worth it. I will one day though. I just like the appeal of records. It's kinda like taking the time to fix eggs and bacon and toast in the morning vs. going to a restraunt and ordering the same thing.

                        Yours is a little better plus you get a little bit of enjoyment out of the whole activity. I'm a alone in this.

                          I grew up with vinyl and it's overrated.
                          As a medium, it's large and labor intensive and more easily damaged.
                          Outdated. A novelty that some people enjoy.

                            hipster cred. That's the sole advantage of vinyl.

                              It's overrated to you. If digitized music sounds just as good to you, then by all means, buy it up. It doesn't sound as good to me, though, and a lot of others agree. It's not overrated to those of us that prefer the sound of it.

                              More easily damaged? How do you figure that? There's not a single skip in any piece of vinyl that I bought new. Some people don't take care of their records. That's not the fault of the medium, though. Those same people don't take care of CD's for ****************, either. That's a non-issue.
