I'm glad you took my comments in the spirit in which they were intended - i.e., good-natured and with humor/humour.
If you are of a certain age and always loved your vinyl and never saw a reason to stop, I completely respect that point of view. (I am a bit mystified how/why vinyl caught on so much among millennials - that I don't really get.) I'm certainly not "anti-vinyl" - without listening to music on vinyl, I never would have become a proper music fan. One of my favorite scenes from the movie Almost Famous is when the young boy (i.e., the main character) is left a box of records by his sister when she leaves home. His playing her copy of The Who's Tommy is one of the most memorable parts. I am, however, against vinyl snobbery - i.e., those who like vinyl themselves and then are completely dismissive of all other formats as if there are no downsides to vinyl at all and nothing to like from the other formats. (Your comment above was obviously tongue-in-cheek, so it was appreciated.)
It depresses me a little that people still listen to mp3s so often, and with earbud earphones to boot. Yes, I completely get the convenience aspect, but I hope those folks are listening to their music in a superior way sometimes. Like you, I like something physical to look over while listening - heck, I consider the artwork an essential part of the music-listening experience. Oh well, maybe the streaming/downloading sites will come up with a way for album artwork to be more prominent; it seems like a real missed opportunity that it hasn't already happened.
Anyway, thank you for introducing the topic!
