I grew up listening to records.(spent what, 20 years of my life(25 is my age) listening to records.) No I'm not a hipster, I'm against that retarded ass concept that kids today came up with. I just know good music when I hear it. Honestly, the whole Vinyl vs CD's/Cassettes/8-track tapes is kinda pointless. Yes, each have there own advantages and such. But to really appreciate what it offers, you had to have grown up with that particular medium.
Like I said, I'll gladly take the crackling of a Vinyl record any day. I'm not a hipster because I prefer that. I just like the old sound of Vinyl and the corresponding artists.
