Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped


Re: Quality of vinyl

Back in the day, I had no money so I bought grey import pressings from Selectadisc in Nottingham -- three record shops in one city, two on one street! The vinyl is super floppy and the sound is a bit peaky. I have grey import and original UK versions of Lou Reed's Transformer and you don't need good ears to hear the difference. Even so, the grey import sounds pleasanter than some "remastered" CDs and it still plays unlike many carefully handled CDs after ten years.
