  1. Nice to see vinyl making a comeback, but after years of getting everything I had on vinyl now on CD, I can’t imagine switching back again to vinyl! Especially with the average cost of a vinyl album today around $25.00, that’s more than CD’s were when they first came out in the early 80’s! I still have some of my vinyl collection left, like British Steel and Screaming For Vengeance, they have some scratches on them, but overall they still sound pretty damn good! And considering they’re over 30 years old! What’s old is new again, that’s great, what sucks is the same album I paid $7.99 for 30 + years ago, is now $24.99 on vinyl, let’s get BACK TO THE FUTURE! LOL! 😉

  2. I love vinyl. Growing up, I had a lot of cassettes to but vinyl sounded better to my ears and the majority of my album collection up to when cds first came out was on vinyl. And the packaging on vinyl albums and all the artwork was and still is very cool. If vinyl records are taken care of they can last forever, just keep them where you’re kids can’t get to them and throw them around like frisbees. Trouble with vinyl albums now is there is only a few places left that make them and they are expensive compared to cds.

    1. Absolutely James, CD’s are convenient, but I too miss the big artwork, and there is a difference in sound, CD’s sound good, but maybe it’s because people like us who grew up on vinyl, our ears instantly recognize the difference in sound. I like the sound & packaging of vinyl more, but I do like the ease of skipping & programming songs with CD’s, so look at it this way, now we really can have the best of both worlds! Whenever we crave the sound of vinyl, we can finally buy it again either from a record store, (if you can find one) or online. The only problem is most vinyl albums now cost between $20.00-$30.00! The only ones I would re-buy would be the greats, my absolute favorites like, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Kiss, Judas Priest, Van Halen, Rush, Triumph’s “Just A Game” on vinyl, even at $30.00, it’d be worth it! I still have it on vinyl, but it’s so worn out & scratched up, I only hold on to it for nostalgia! Take care buddy, cheers! 🙂

    2. Some of my old records, mainly the jackets, are in rough shape. It is a nostalgia thing for me also to hold on to them. I’ve have most of them on cd, but I’ll pull out and old record every now and then and listen to it, like Kiss Destroyer, which I listen to tonight and loved it. But I wouldn’t buy brand new albums on vinyl, just classic ones like you mentioned. Every once in a while I’ll see if anything worthy is on Amazon but, like you said, real record stores are hard to find. But cds are great and convenient, I agree.
      Cheers, my friend!

    3. Destroyer is a perfect example of an album that sounds so much better on vinyl than CD! Even though my record is in rough shape, (it’s 38 years old!) it still sounds better than my Destroyer CD! Eventually, I’ll probably rebuy it on vinyl, when I can afford it, LOL! 😉

  3. Those songs are slamming hearing them on vinyl would really sound good. Still have my turn table some where’s going to have to dig out, dust it of and turn the mother up!
