Why not let those LP aficionados have their fun if there are people willing to cater to their tastes. No harm, no foul. Personally I'll stick to my CDs.

I don't get the point in relasing something analog that has been recorded in studio digitally. And there will be people stating that it sounds better than the CD.

Yep.

 

It is very easy for an existing film score album to be remastered, put on different physical formats, etc.

 

It is a very complicated process to add more music to it licensed from the film studio.

Ok.

 

But what if an OST re-release means renewing the rights of the holder company?

 

That would add more years for a deal to expire and let expanded releases...

 

It can affect our niche market schedules...

Oh, it's really curious. I'd put money on real vinlys, but the idea of these faux ones remind me of those mass-produced silver plated candle holders in period styles, that are lacquered with modern chemicals.

 

Each to his own! I'm still glad this vinly renaissance is bringing back physical formats for music and new record stores, at least here in Chile.

It's a generation thing. It will not last to the next one.

 

It's like a monkey trying to imitate his parents.

 

Big retarded monkeys... thinking it was better "before"... and wanting to hold LPs in their hands now just because it was obsolete when they grew up.

 

And then there are collectors.  They woud buy a pile of shit if the Star Wars logo was on it.

I (like many here) prefer to own my music in a physical form.

And I just happen to prefer the vinyl, because it looks amazing with the big covers, the quality is good and (I know this may sound weird) it sort of forces me to listen to the album in chronological order, which is what I like better, but often forget when I listen to music digitally. I can't help jumping around a little bit.

It's not a nostalgic thing as I wasn't raised with it or anything.
