From MP3 to LP

As someone who grew up during the golden age of digital piracy, I'm 100% sure records really do sound better than MP3s.

Sure there's lossless audio too, but we stream everything now and the quality is really only as good as your internet connection.

Streaming is convenient; I'm not going to carry a suitcase record player with me in the car, but it does feel good to actually own your favorite albums instead of only streaming them. There's nothing quite like thumbing through the little inserts and reading lyrics in print while you listen to your favorite bands.

I started collecting records a couple years ago and I'm only getting more obsessed over time. Listening to stuff like Minor Threat or Wu-Tang on vinyl is a downright religious experience.
