Just goes to show...
It's worth noting that, as a format, vinyl kind of sucks, for the following reasons:
(A) It is incredibly delicate. "Kind of Blue" sounds better on vinyl, but "Kind of Blue" with a big fucking nick in the beginning of "So What" can ruin your day.
(B) Storage is annoying. Storage of any sort of quantity is really annoying. Trying to keep the records from destroying themselves is essentially impossible.
(C) The master for vinyl and the master for a CD have nothing to do with each other. That's why early CDs that didn't have their own master sounded like complete arse. And that's why a lot of vinyl released now sounds like complete arse.
(D) Aside from the inevitable "cool" factor, my digital music collection is quite a bit more versatile, easy to store, and permanent than my vinyl record collection.
But all that said, "Kind of Blue" on 180-gram vinyl on a good turntable, with a good preamp, a good amp, and a good set of speakers, makes life worth living, while an MP3 of "Kind of Blue" sounds not bad in the car. Discuss.
