superior in some respects, inferior in others, and annoying as hell to cart around. but yeah if i had a million dollars to waste i'd prolly buy a lot of records.
1. they do have superior sound quality. i'm not a hipster.
2. they're MUCH cooler (bigger, more intuitive to interact with, "warmer" in an emotional sense).
3. colored vinyl/picture discs/collectability/etc
it's hard to really "explain"--either you get and feel why records are cooler, or you don't. when cd's came around, they were supposed to sound better than anything and they were portable in a way records weren't. but now with mp3s and ipods, those perks are redundant, so records have regained their cachet.
but i agree on cds, why would anyone ever buy one now when you can just put everything on an mp3 player. and i don't care what anyone says, mp3s [encoded correctly] sound just as good as cds.
