I still fail to see the big resurgence in vinyl? I bring this up since I noticed that Hyper Light Drifter is releasing a vinyl album
along with a cassette
Well, OK, I guess you're all 80s retro, but seriously why? If someone gave me a cassette it's not as if I have anything to play it on. I wonder if many of these vinyl albums are simply sold to consumers (at a pretty hefty price, by the way) simply because they can sell it as a "limited collector's" item. It's a fad as far as I can tell. The rumor that the quality is better is just that, a rumor (i.e. not true)
"As long as you can measure the difference, the CD will be better than the vinyl, absolutely...But if you say the whole experience — just like smoking cigars with friends — [is better], well, do it. Enjoy smoking cigars with friends, and drink beer and brandy and enjoy listening to an old-fashioned record player. But don't say the sound is better. You may say it sounds better to you. That's OK. That's a subjective matter."
Myself, I'm a bit annoyed, because I do like CDs and a physical CD is something you can pass down to family and friends. Also, it doesn't weigh much nor take up much space, unlike 4 vinyls. Lastly, if you're going to release a soundtrack on cassette and vinyl, is it seriously that hard to release a CD?!
