i'll get it because the original sounds like trash. i hate SRC though. $30+ LPs that never ship on time

my original BCR sounds pretty good. not amazing but not as bad as the +44 one, which has to be the worst sounding record i own.

does anyone know how the SRC pressing of we don't need to whisper sounds?

Super stoked for the different colors of +44, and high quality packaging, but definitely not pre-ordering them. SRC can take forever, I would recommend just waiting until they actually come out to purchase.

 

Also, if anyone has been looking for Short Bus, keep an eye on this one on eBay.

I'm not even close to a vinyl aficionado, but I do love listening to records and adding to my collection. But am I wrong in thinking that Blink/+44 albums don't really have any reason to be owned and played on vinyl? When they were produced the music was obviously being made to sound good on CD/radio, while older records from before Blink's time sound great on vinyl because the sound was meant to be heard that way. There's a chance that is all just in my head haha but I've just never felt the need to listen to pop punk type stuff on vinyl, am I missing out?

music can be mastered for any format just like movies can be finished for theatrical projection or home viewing on a tv. it doesn't matter what year it was made or what the norm was.

in the grand scheme of things, it's all subjective. i'd say there are equally good arguments for both sides. so, it comes down to preference.

Someone else can chime in from a technical perspective, I am definitely not an audiophile and have a super cheap set-up - so amazing/different quality isn't why I buy them personally.

I buy them simply because I like the huge album art/colored records, and it's just neat to throw on a Blink record and feel old school about it. I also enjoy how it pretty much forces you to listen to the entire album in order, which is refreshing at times. This also makes me be quite picky on what albums I will buy on vinyl, as they need to be pretty special front to back.

owning music on vinyl is not about owning the music in better quality. vinyl is just a collector thing, it's the most durable physical format on the consumer side. your cassettes, cds, hard drives, streaming providers (and all those player devices or digital formats) probably become unusable/obsolete earlier than vinyl (also record players are very simple, futureproof devices), so if you are a music collector, vinyl is your definitive choice, because you definitely want a format that lasts longer than others.

there's no other rational reason to put digitally made recordings on analog media, it will not be better quality than the flac files you can have on your computer (or through a streaming service).

anyway, i'm not into collecting music, this music collection-building hype looks a bit dumb to me. like every other person want to own a private museum. i mean, in the end the most beloved collections will be trash, just like everything else you own. :) it's better to use your belongings than just owning them. and this is the problem with vinyl: collectors own them because of the futureproof aspect, but most of them listen to music from itunes/spotify (or any other instant media service) because these are far more usable at the moment. and as long as we won't end up in a post-apocalyptic world, these services will always be there to be better alternatives for everyday usage. so millions of vinyl collections will never be used at all.
