The Unforgettable Fire is MADE for vinyl.

It is a Side A/Side B album if ever there was one. 4th July and Promenade back to back on CD doesn't work. But when one finishes Side A and the other starts side B, it's just perfect.
Damn right it is.

I'm a CD junkie. I love all the thoughts that go along with vinyl, but i've put way too much time and money into cds to just say "hey i think i'd rather buy a turntable". plus, with SACDs and DVD-As, you get surround sound music, which is totally bad a$$. really. its sounds awesome. and i've looked into it, and the whole "richer" sound is all mental. if you have high end players for cds and new vinyl, the quality is the same. i think its just that listening to vinyl is more interactive than cds.

gotta love a medium that costs loads, degrades every time you play it, and doesn't actually sound better than a CD.

Um, his post was a dig at vinyl buyers.

Vinyl costs more, degrades with every turn of the table, and doesn't sound better than a cd.
