Verified Purchase. This album deserves to be massive in the uk. Aaaand the world of Music has been saved. For some reason, I didn't even know this amazing artist existed until she appeared on The One Show a few weeks ago, but I was instantly besotted with her voice, her music, her image - just everything about her.
As someone whose music tastes run from Celtic and Classical right through to Rock and Indi, it's rare for me to focus my attention on just one artist, but I simply can't stop listening to LP. Having seen her One Show performance, I instantly dug out her previous albums - Death Valley, Into the Wild and Forever for Now as well as a couple of random numbers featured on compilations, I was very pleased to see a new album was on its way.
Of course, I've probably listened to it about ten times over by now, whether it's in the car, at work or other random moments which are made so much better by music.
So, Lost on You - where do I even begin? I think everyone looking at the album will have heard the album's title song by now and we're all crazy about it, but, in my opinion, that is only a small fraction of what LP is capable of. I'm just looking at the track-list now, but I honestly can't pick out any song that I don't like. Although she's generally classified as rock, pop or alternative, I find it difficult to actually place her because every song not just on this album sounds different and unique.
For example, Lost on You draws closer to the rock genre, while Switchblade is almost soulful and you could say that Long Way to go to Die verges on country. I own thousands of tracks on my iTunes library. I also own many of the CDs. But there are albums that only exist on vinyl. I began buying and collecting vinyl records not because it was cheaper, or more convenient, but because I find more information on the cover, from the circumstances that led to a certain recording to who composed what or arranged this or that.
Some of this historical data is not to be found on Wikipedia or the Internet. And where does the author get that vinyl records are more fragile than CDs or other formats? I see magnetic cassette tapes completely absent from this discussion. Ever had a tape recorder eat your cassette, Mr.
A vinyl record is made of PVC, one of the more durable plastics ever fashioned. Use a blunt needle and you will definitely wear and destroy your vinyl record for sure.
Point made! Most importantly, we all have a choice. Reminds me of the penny. They have a nostalgic attachment to them. And I say this as someone who loves vinyl and someone who is older and actually grew up with it. No reason to produce them these days. This article feels like it was published in the early s when CDs were still present and the vinyl was a tiny niche. Today, most musicians and music lovers, especially in their 20ss, are much more appreciating the format, and its timeless advantages.
None of my old records have skips, and of the almost used records I have amassed ever since getting back into vinyl three years ago, not one has a needle skip. Many of my copies appear scratched up and come from dollar bins and thrift stores, and I clean each incoming record using a washing system. I personally, reject any record that skips, regardless of how rare it is or how badly I want the album to be in my collection. CDs pale in comparison to vinyl.
The only downsides are convenience and cost. IMO CDs sound dead. If it was recorded on a digital board your vinyl is no longer analog, it will sound the same at best as a CD. If you were smart enough to record on tape you are fine, however if you are using a digital mixing board you are no longer analog and therefore no need to go to vinyl.
