What about when they stop putting out albums on CD? Then your collection is uneven format-wise. That would make me care. But I'm weird.
I will start caring when it comes to that. For now, I'm good.

i mean Jesus, the word is 'record' we don't call toaster ovens 'metal' or 'metals' that's the material it's made of.

If we're really going to have this conversation:

"Record" is like "album" in that it can be used to broadly describe a set of songs that are sequenced together. "Vinyl" can be and is used to distinguish a record from CDs, cassettes, and other formats.

It really isn't that big of a deal. People are mocked for saying "vinyls" because it's grammatically incorrect. If we're going to start ostracizing people for saying "vinyl" just because it's something that a bunch of people decide isn't cool, then I don't even know. I've been collecting vinyl since I was 13, and I've never had a problem with saying it.

If you went into a hundred record stores and said "hey, I'm looking for a copy of the new Brand New record" I promise you at least 70% of the clerks would come back with a copy of the CD.

lol nah dude, you're (and apparently these shitty store clerks too) confusing 'record' with 'album'. Albums are released on record, CD, cassette, etc. The term 'record sales' comes from when records were the only format, they're technically album sales though.

Wait, the universal term isn't 'LP?' I never call them 'vinyl' or 'records.'

I'm not sure, but isn't that record speak? LP for long play, EP for extended play, and then singles?

No I know where the term comes from. I'm just pointing out that over time, "record" has come to mean the same thing as "album" in every day speech.
