I would buy more vinyl if they weren't so overpriced. In HMV, Silverstein - Short Songs was 22 on vinyl or 9 on CD. That difference is just ridiculous.

The article doesn't mention new releases put out on vinyl, just vintage records and reissues.

Weird.

Makes sense, I buy vinyl if I want a physical copy of something, its usually not even much more. Because I listen to basically everything on my computer, there's like zero reason to buy a CD ever.

To be fair, HMV is the one grossly overpricing records.
