From what I've gathered it seems like everybody who lived when vinyl was still active don't want it to come back and most people who have never experienced it consider it to be very special.

I like to have hard copies too. Admittedly I havent bought much in the last year as ive been struggling financially but I used to buy a lot and when I find myself with some money to spare again I'll start buying.

If i download something and I like it enough I'll try to buy it eventually.

Legal downloads confuse me. If I'm gonna pay for music I'm damn sure gonna have something I can hold in my hands.

that could be the mastering, or the fact that album hasn't been reissued since whenever it first came out on CD. But then if I didn't have the option of whacking the bass dial up for that one it wouldn't be the same experience, they famously recorded it with no middle range

I just meant it as an obvious example of vinyl compared to cd.
I think a fresh properly mastered vinyl sounds better than a cd, purely because of the warmth and rawness derived from an imperfect analogue source. Digital perfection sounds too clean and hi-fi, it sucks some of the energy and vibe out of most styles of music.
However, cd's are obviously more convenient and mp3's more convenient again.

The vinyl resurgence has come about purely because of a backlash to the idea of disposability of music which has been created the ease of obtaining mp3's.
