Re: Oh so true...

Do you know why record labels are pushing vinyl so hard?

Because vinyl is a precious object that can't be copied.

No, really. To hardcore punters, vinyl rips just don't have that Special Vinyl Magic[tm]. So the majors are desperately trying to sign bands from vinyl-friendly genres like doom metal so they can sell music on bits of plastic and pretend it's 1965 again.

Streaming? Spotify has burned through >$1bn, and still no IPO. And Demonoid is back.

See that writing on the wall? That's the future, that is.
