I remember spending hours looking at my album covers waiting for the next y and t msg ozzy scorps ...my sisters rainbow blue oyster cult kiss albums spending hours scouring every inch of the cover singing along with the words with headsphones on .....kids dont have the joy of this knowadays they download it then throw it away after 5 minutes cd players for 10 pounds brand new no balanceing two pence pieces on the record player arm to stop it skipping cd covers got smaller then i pods took over brilliant in a way that you can get a million songs on a postage stamp but no where near the smell and look of a double album ... I really hope the new demon album is available on vinyl i would be 14 again

As someone who loves CDs, I'll have to fight for CDs here it seems Razz

Well, CDs are compact. Compact Discs naturally, you bought all your vinyls from the stores but I bet you must've avoided every bump on the way home Smile Very fragile, my parents had a bunch and I wasn't allowed anywhere near them.

They used to warp rather badly and you only hold them by the edges! because if you touched them anywhere else, you could mark the surface and affect the sound. None of my CDs have ever warped and I have some back from 1992.

Then there's just playing them, right? is it 45RPM? 33RPM? 78RPM? Nah thanks, I'll just play my CD ;)

Any marks at all, caused an audible clicking as you play it. I'd rather be immersed in my own music then be annoyed by clicks. CDs get dirty too but can be cleaned.

Plus the things you've already listed, CD buyers get them too! We get the artwork plus lyrics inside the booklet at the front and a nice 'newly bought' smell too when you open it Razz

Plus you can rip CDs to make MP3s! music on the go! and MP3s can hold album artwork, song lyrics and other information.

OK.. I've gone on long enough Razz Go, Team CD!

What we need is the best of both worlds: Keep the disk as a CD but expand and increase the size of the package (ooh er missus!) - a bit like a 'box-set' maybe, so that artwork and lyrics can be viewed without magnifying classes.

For me vinyl records have a warmth that cd's dont have and that old scratching /static noise from unseen dust etc that gives the album or single character,Memories of days gone by old friends sitting in the upstairs room of a friend listening to rock music vinyl from the 60,70,and 80's and just chilling out to Jethro Tull,Queen,Demon etc. Vinyl wins hands down for me even with the scratches and warping

I think we have to be careful to make a distinction between nostalgia and reason though.

It definately depends how old you are i think on this matter 25 year olds love cd its there era my lad whos 13 loves his blackberry and constantly has his music on his phone,as regards records scratching i remember all the blurb about cds being unscratchable...if thats a word...i have loads that are unplayable due to been left in my van nothing more annoying than a skipping cd. Ive thrown many an album out of the van window in a fit of rage.

For me its not a question of the media itself. For me its a question of a) the sound and b) the way you listen to music.

I prefer vinyls due to the analogue more dirty sound that resembles a more recording-studio-feel.
But whats more important to me is the way I listen to the music from an LP. Because of the less comfortable handling of vinyls, you have to take time to listen to them. So I sit down with the 12" cover and sleeve reading the the lyrics along, while the eyes in my slightly banging head frequently scan over the cover artwork. That way I get a better understanding of what I'm listening to.
Since "The plague" album, Demon-music is destined to be heard that way.
Speaking of "The plague", anyone who owns the LP version with the 12" booklet sticked to the inside of the gatefold may understand what I'm trying to talk about. The "Spaced out monkey"-LP is almost as good as "The plague" LP, except the fact that the lyrics are printed on a 12" sheet instead of a booklet.

PS: vinyls can be converted to mp3 too.

I was talking to my friend about Vinyls recently. I was doing some ebay searching and seeing Opeth's Ghost Reveries LP at £100 (and rising) but the CDDVD versions floating around are going untouched at £5 and I asked him why.

He said Vinyls tend to be considered a 'purer' form of audio. He says people sometimes believe they can hear 'more' then is intended by the listener and people will pay, a larger amount it seems, more for this.

Maybe I am missing out on something by not at least trying a vinyl record just once but I can't afford a vinyl player right now and, just at the moment, I've got nowhere to put those big black discs as I.... just finished building a wooden CD rack. Oh, the irony.

Mix and mastering is probably done digital these days and then we put it on vinyl.... Laughing

Aye, I doubt much is done in the way of analogue recording, mixing and mastering these days (although I believe Bob Ezrin still likes to work this way to a degree). I think the vinyl 'revival' is just one of nostalgia and being able to hold and feel 12 inches! Wink
