Vinyl has it's ups and downs, as does CD, so i'd like to take a moment and say what I like and dislike best about each:
CD Favorite things :
~ Are remastered most of the time, resulting in better and louder quality.
~ No crackles
~ Are listenable to in cars
~ With blank CDs, you can make your own "compilation" albums, meaning you can put a bunch of random music onto one CD from your computer, but Vinyl only holds the album it was made for.
~ CDs hold much more time.
~ No "sides", so you don't have to get up every 20 minutes to change sides (i'm lazy, I know LoL).
~ Very small artwork, and if it's an album that was once on Vinyl, gatefold images and back covers are often removed.
~ CDs are much more delicate and won't play with many scratches, whereas Vinyl lasts longer.
Vinyl Favorite Things:
~ Records are fun to watch spin around as they play.
~ Very big, and sometimes interactive, cover art.
~ There's lots of music on Vinyl that you can't even get on CD.
~ I get that feeling of "this is the way the artist intended for me to hear the album" feeling with Vinyl, whereas with CDs, there's Stereo mixes, bonus tracks, etc.
~ Vinyl is pretty expensive these days.
~ If there's any dust on the record your playing, or if it's getting old, then you'll hear crackle noises.
~ Record covers can begin to get wear on them, and seam splits, whereas CDs can be stored in "CD Books" and hold many of them.
~ Records usually only have about 17 to 21 minutes of music on them (the longest i've ever seen a side of a record contain in music was 27 minutes).
In general, CDs and Records have their ups and downs. These are mine with each. In my daily life, I tend to use CDs more frequently, bit Vinyl sometimes hits the spot as well.
