I've heard the phrase "it's just noise" to describe an unholy number of bands that i listen to

makes me rage

Yeah sure, 1200 of 'em. And another 400 in another room, but I don't think I'll try to save those .
Ah I love records as well. Just wish they were not so expensive. I have a lot of old ones but all the new releases I just cant afford shelling out 15-30 bucks for

Its sad I have kind of given up on it and just resorted to making my digital collection better. Im glad you are still record collecting though.

Hit the nail on the head about the v-card haha. And that's another thing about my generation, it seems like guys get into classic rock (not 'classic rock radio' **** per se) much earlier than girls and tend to get more into it. Not that there aren't exceptions. But most 16 your old white guys today will have a working knowledge of some classic rock groups even if they aren't huge fans, where as girls are more into top 100 stuff and rap. Girls get more into 'serious' music in college. Obviously not the rule but a trend i've observed growing up in the last few years.

Also, whats the big deal about vinyl? I'm too young to even remember 8-track really, so I've never had a record player lying around and I'd have to shell out about $100 to be able to get one. Is the sound quality any better, or is it merely nostalgia about it being the way you grew up listening to it, or because it is the "original" medium that it was recorded for or some such sentimental reason.

hell i'm 34 and i can't stand Dylan (not gonna deny his influence or ability though, just doesn't do it for my ears).

as for 8-tracks i remember having one way back in the day. not at all the same as vinyl. with an actual vinyl record you can turn on your turntable and turn OFF the speakers and still hear the music if you lean in close. 8-tracks were a whole different technology, the tapes were large (about the size of an average portable cd player) with a whole 4 tracks per side. the cool thing i remember about it was that you could just hit a button a skip tracks. didn't have to fast forward or rewind like a typical cassette.

i clearly remember cold-cutting some Sesame Street classics back in '79 on my big blue player hehehe

That's Xiu Xiu... great experimental band. The vocals are just amazing. That's from their album The Air Force. Fabulous Muscles is another good album to get into as well.

Not the case here. I have never noticed any difference in that. My girlfriends all have had an average to good music taste as long as I've known them (which is, in most cases, from 14-16 years old till now).
Maybe I'm just running into the right ones, not sure

Well I prefer the sound to the sound of a CD. Ofcourse it has some background noise. But if you take care of your records there shouldn't be any crackle or pop. Furthermore the 'loudness war' problem of the last ten years usually isn't there when you buy a record. A record that's been limited to the brim sounds so bad that it just won't sell. So most records actually have a better mix to start with.

I'm not saying digital can't sound good. Just not the kind of digital (16 bits 44.1khz) that they put on a CD. I have a lot of CD's. About 350 to 400. But I usually buy them second hand after I buy the record. I buy them because then I don't have to get up every 22 minutes.

And too old for vinyl?
I bought for a hundred dollars on new vinyl yesterday. It's not dead man. It's alive and kicking.

I also bought a brand new reel to reel tape that arrived today.
There's still a lot of love for analog media, fortunately.
And as far as vinyl goes, about 50% of true audiophiles prefers vinyl, about 50% prefers CD's. So I guess it's a question of taste.

I myself prefer tapedecks, as they're the only medium that can perfectly duplicate the sound of a CD nd a vinyl record.
