Vinyl. Mmm.

Post by AngryKidJoe » Mon Nov 30, 2009 4:18 am

I rediscovered my love for Vinyl LPs. I found my turntable when removing crap from my mother's basement. I went out today and purchased Slayer's World Painted Blood and Every Time I Die's New Junk Aesthetic. I really enjoy the superior sound quality. I'm still a little baffled that CDs can't compete with it. I even started looking at USB turntables so I can rip LPs to MP3s. I've been listening to sound samples of CD ripped MP3s and Vinyl Ripped MP3s and even so, Vinyl comes out heavily superior.

I've often felt that vinyl has more "warmth" whereas CDs sound more "clinical".

I just ordered a 7" with two christmas songs on it done by a metal band. They're instrumentals. I'd recommend giving them a listen.

August Burns Red - Carol of the Bells
August Burns Red - O Come, O Come Emmanuel

I just bought SPAWN - The Album on vinyl. I love this soundtrack. I didn't think I'd actually find it. I really like it when 2 artists get together and mix a song. I'm very pleased with this purchase. I got a steal of a deal on the price too. It's going for 66.00 Euros in Europe and I only found 2 copies in the US. All used. The other one was in 'mediocre' condition.

TRACKLIST:
01. Filter & The Crystal Method - (Can't You) Trip Like I Do
02. Marilyn Manson & Sneaker Pimps - Long Hard Road Out Of Hell
03. Orbital & Kirk Hammett - Satan
04. Korn & The Dust Brothers - Kick The P.A.
05. Butthole Surfers & Moby - Tiny Rubberband
06. Metallica & DJ Spooky - For Whom The Bell Tolls (The Irony If It All)
07. Stabbing Westward & Wink - Torn Apart
08. Mansun & 808 State - Skin Up Pin Up
09. Prodigy & Tom Morello - One Man Army
10. Silverchair & Vitro - Spawn
11. Henry Rollins & Goldie - T-4 Strain
12. Incubus & D.J. Greyboy - Familiar
13. Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot - No Remorse (I Wanna Die)
14. Soul Coughing & Roni Size - A Plane Scraped Its Belly On A Sooty Yellow Moon

Maybe I should have read this thread first. See my reply in other "format" thread :lol:

Vinyl is definitely more suitable for dirty guitar music, blues, rock'n roll, etc.. Did I really have to mention guitar in that sentence?!

But it made the electronica sound really odd and annoying.. and the classical collection too.

I'm going to have to disagree, though, it is a personal preference. I have Atari Teenage Riot and NIN on vinyl. Not really "electronica", well, ATR is 'digital hardcore' but as long as everything is kept clean there aren't any 'pops' from dust. Though, vinyl can be extremely inconvenient but that inconvenience is something that I like. I think everything is too fast paced these days and having to listen to an entire album and kind of 'work' for listening to music makes me appreciate it more.
