METAL JESUS ROCKS!: The Vinyl Countdown

For all the ability of modern digital cameras to capture the world in stunningly precise detail, there's still a certain warmth to analog film which can't quite be reproduced electronically.

Similarly, for all the cold precision CDs or lossless digtal audio can offer, those formats lack a certain fullness of sound that remains only to be found in live performances and, some would argue, vinyl LPs. Hipster audio preferences aside, there's also a collectibility advantage that you get with old-school albums that contain a full square foot of record real estate as opposed to the paltry CD jewel case standard which has dominated retail sales for the past 20 years. Or worse yet, the vaporific eff-all that comes with digital downloads.

Give yourself a tactile smile; pick up an LP of your favorite artist today and find a table to spin it on while admiring the gloriously static album art. Or, for some good ideas of where to start your vinyl odyssey, check out this week's METAL JESUS ROCKS! wherein EvAv's own Seattle Starchild showcases a few of his favorite long-plays from the Metal Man Cave's audiophile wing.




I think I'll go spin up my copy of Frontiers over my lunch break today.

Dude, that Iron Maiden picture record is amazing. They are quite possibly my favorite band of all time.

Love the little dress up you two do at the end.

I love the vinyl! At some point I'll have to share my collection. Nice Vid!

Used to have quite a few of the albums shown in this video. Got rid of them over the years much like my gaming collection. My wife still has a bunch, mostly bands like Def Leppard and Bon Jovi from her teen years.

While I am out hunting for games I will occasionally grab a record here and there. Managed to grab a mint copy of my favorite Who album, Quadrophenia - I have it hanging on the wall of my office.
