When I got back into vinyl(I call them records) two years ago, I remembered how much I enjoyed the activity of listening to music which I had not really experienced in virtual decades. It can be a bit finicky keeping the stylus and grooves free of dust and the pops and crackles can sometimes be distracting but it has been a really enjoyable bit of part nostalgia and part ritual. I’m not into records to be an audiophile or for $1000 power chords. I love how I pay more attention to the music and am more invested in the experience which forces you to listen to all the tracks and not skip over the lesser-known songs. And like all the things I like, it just is fun to look at.
