I would say about 85% of what people bring up is dog**** that I can't believe someone wants a physical representation of in their house

however another employee did put on that new Squid and it's not too shabby

like I didn't realize how many redundant pressings of modern day Top 40 there are because insurance salesman will buy $300 worth of them in one trip

all vinyl records are redundant at this point. It's just a novelty item.

not if you're buying something that was made to be pressed to vinyl

it's not about sounding "better" but it 100% sounds different

Pretty much my reaction to this too, especially after getting more into music production.

Whatever minute sound difference it has it outweighed by the inconvenience of the physical medium and the maintenance required

I hear cassettes have made a comeback which is even more of a mystery to me. They're small with small art and not as displayable, so not as good a collectible. Plus, who wants to blindly rewind or fast forward to change songs?

We wanna rid the world of plastic waste and reduce co2 footprints, yet we're gonna produce these outdated mediums that noone really needs.
