I do generally feel that if someone is looking for a product that is perfectly flat and without surface noises, buy a CD. The only reason I'm even bothering with vinyl is because the market is there... for now. I've gone from being excited when receiving a new, or repressed, LP to holding my breath wondering what will bug me about this one. After posting pics on Facebook of the Boingo LP's I received last week, I then had to post about the issue and suggesting buyers to 'stay tuned..." I now have to make sure to listen to at least one copy of each color variation in full (with headphones) before posting about its arrival. It's an unnecessary waste of time due the fast food nature in which vinyl seems to be manufactured these days. On the plus side of the day, I hit a record by sending in my artwork for the two upcoming CD's to Universal and received approval in about an hour. In the past, it can take several weeks to have the artwork reviewed, so this was nice. Now, I just need my master transfers so I can get the audio completed and then submitted into production.
