CoS £6.99

AFtK £7.99

Hemispheres £7.99
Just ordered all three plus Dire Straits' Love Over Gold.
They've made a pig's ear of the album descriptions. ATWAS has the description for 2112 and each album has an MP3 download voucher described as 'High Res Digital'

I still have my Rush LPs up to Presto.


I have never understood the love of vinyl, once CDs became available.  Apparently they sound better.  No clue why - they just don't sound as good as CDs to me. I suppose they are more tactile - you can read the liner notes, and some of them smell interesting.

I look back at Vinyl with incredibly fond memories. The time when I bought it my stereo was no great shakes, but everything about them just seemed to add to the experience. The size, shape, cover, liner notes, any extra bits included, the detail of the artwork (Maiden fan, what do you expect)

I think I have spent literally days of my life looking at the cover for Powerslave, and am pretty sure I would have learned lyrics to songs on buses before I had even heard them.

Its the same reason I like a book rather than a kindle, eat fruit rather than a smoothie, and keep a copy of Escort Readers wives special 1989 rather than go online....
The new songs are an abomination

Undoubtedly a lot of vinyl's appeal has to do with nostalgia, for many anyway. For me it's partly a fascination with the mechanical engineering involved and the level of performance that can be achieved if you are prepared to spend decent money. Cd, like downloads may be better in many ways but the technology is far less interesting to me. I may have had mobiles above my cot!

At least in a post-Brexit world, when the lights have all gone out, those of us with vinyl might be able to jury rig some sort of device to play our sounds - even if it is only once - unlike the CD and digital download peeps :)

You can play vinyl with the new £5 note, don't you know?

They sound different, but they emphatically aren't as good in terms of accurate reproduction. Just a fad really.
