It's called citing facts to bolster an argument.

What was album sales before 1993 assholes :smoke:

Not sure how that's relevant to a discussion of the current popularity of vinyl. No one's trying to say vinyl is selling more than it did before CDs and digital music downloads, just that it's more popular now than it's been in 20 years and hardly "a thing of the past" which was the claim I am debating.

But I expect this cogent argument to be lost on an imbecile like yourself.
Not sure get the fuck out 8)

While I am old enough to remember vinyl in a pre-CD world, you do realize the figures posted by Nielsen in my earlier post don't refer to second-hand vinyl sales, right? These sales are new releases by current artists (as well as reissues).

Interesting figures, thanks man !

I am thinking about buying some vinyls this year.
More precisely, I bought The Resistance album by Muse on CD a few years ago.
And unfortunately, I am not satisfied with its overused compression.
So either I can find the CD with the "ReLife Remaster" or I get the vinyl which was made from a better master (according to the DR Dabatase.

I am not stuck on this format, I just want to get the music I need. Period.
My only concern is I don't wanna pay $25, these fuckers are overpriced.

I learned my lesson about buying sealed copies of old LPs. About ten years ago, I bought an unopened Joe's Garage on Ebay, and when I opened it up (probably should have left it sealed anyway), I found that the record was completely warped--totally unplayable. Thankfully, I only paid like $25 for it.

Very true, old shrink wrap is no guarantee of mint-condition vinyl. One of many reasons why the ZFT's "vaultage vinyl" prices are several shades of preposterous.

Well, I should have written "Does such a thing really exist?" instead, as I was more suprised actually.
Sorry if I sounded affirmative, you can never completely trust an online seller.
Although this guy seems serious with far more than 1000 happy customers, it could also be a massive scam.

I have not seen mint items older than my Sleep Dirt LP.
Sure this one has been already played, but it has no scratch or hiss at all.

And the oldest unplayed LP I bought recently was YCDTOSA Sampler.

Whatever I would not spend more than $25 even for a rare edition sealed or not.

You know, I always want to get excited about Record Store Day, but whenever I browse through the list of releases, nothing ever really jumps out at me as a must-have. A lot of it reeks of manufactured "collectors" hype--stuff that's desirably only because of its scarcity. I have a hard time getting excited about a bunch of 7" singles of stuff I already have on LPs. Having said that, I'm totally getting this one:

• Unrest Perfect Teeth 6x7” box set (Colored Vinyl w/24 page booklet)
