Your Preferred Music Listening Format
Am currently listening to some records. I always used to be quite sceptical about the whole "records sound better" theory but I have succumbed, I much prefer listening to music on vinyl as it sounds that bit better.
That being said, other factors have to be considered; I can't exactly listen to my Dig Out Your Soul or Chinese Demorcacy LPs on the train to work, and I can't put my records on if I'm busy doing other things whilst listening to the music because of the fact that I will have to turn them over etc.
Not a huge fan of downloaded music, I am a bit of a saddo who likes the artwork etc and also having a new album in my hands is always exciting. But this is another area where LPs come into their own; the artwork looks more impressive and you feel you have bought something more substantial. I read an interview with some geezer from some band once, he was ranting about CDs and saying "how the **** could you love this?" He may have a point, I dunno
Anyway, for me it's vinyl. I don't have anywhere near as many records as I do CDs (basically have a few GNR & Oasis albums and boots, a couple of Beatles LPs then a whole load of GNR, Oasis & Motley 7" & 12" singles) but if I own an album on both CD and LP and am just going to sit and listen to it then I will put the LP on, no question.
Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
