The vinyl "renaissance"

It totally makes me laugh the way people say "vinyl records are having a renaissance," and "vinyl sounds better than CDs." Fuck off, they do NOT sound better than CDs.

I suffered for over 30 years from the 50's to the 80's listening to records with all their scratches and other defects. The number of CDs which sound "bad" to me, including reissues of LPs which I already own, I could count on one hand.

The problem is, when people talk about this "renaissance," they are not talking about classical music which is QUIET. You can actually hear the scratches and so forth, unlike with pop music where it usually drowns out the scratches, except in the gaps between the tracks.
