Often the mere mention of the words “Vinyl vs. CD” sends people into epileptic fits, causing an endless, raging debate that will continue until the involved parties are even angrier. People on both sides present various “facts” and “opinions” even as the line between both of those things blurs until it is totally nonexistent. In the end I think it comes down to personal preference. And as you’ve probably guessed from this blog, I tend to prefer vinyl. BUT, I do listen to and enjoy CDs too. So, why raise the question here? To start more debate? Actually, no, but there is a reason for all of this and an explanation as to how it fits into the context of this blog.
This has been weighing on my mind for some time (because clearly, I have nothing else to worry about…). The original thought for this blog was “records only”. But the fact is, in my travels I come across a lot of great CDs too. So I’ve decided I’m gonna start listing some of those as well, because some of them are just too good not to share. But no worries, vinyl junkies, it will mostly likely still be predominantly LPs that you will see here, with the occasional dip into digital territory.
Can’t vinyl and CD just get along? Can’t they hold hands and co-exist peacefully?
