I've gotten really into collecting and playing vinyl records recently, and instead of going to bed so I can wake up at 5 for work I decided to make a list of reasons why.
Records are big and come with giant pictures of the album artwork.
Most records aren't any more expensive than cds
They have a warmer sound when played
To me, it's the closest to actually being able to physically hold and see music, the sounds aren't in some file or recorded into a cd. They are actually physically cut into the plastic. So cool!
It's quite enjoyable to go hunting for rare recordings and then actually find one
They can be an investment but I'd honestly never sell any of mine.
