Just out of curiosity, how many of you own these 30 records in physical format, and how many of you are talking about things you've downloaded mixed with records [/CDs/ tapes] you physically own?

The reason I ask is that new releases tend to retain around the 15 mark, and 30x15 isn't a massive amount of money, but it's still an amount of money.

PAULYBEE2656 06.14.2008 04:10 PM

its not a massive amount of money if you have it!!!!!

for the record.. i own probably 75% of the ones listed above

demonrail666 06.14.2008 04:11 PM

Yeah, I'm frankly amazed that there are 30 albums released this year that are worth owning, let alone ranking in a top 30.

PAULYBEE2656 06.14.2008 04:13 PM

this year is probably better than last year for new releases and to be honest last year was great.

Yeah, I mean, I could afford to own more than that. And I'm not being Dave Pious 'records are real music'. I just find with new records that I'm pissed off for paying the inflated 'new' price and I fucking hate having shit records sat about and I don't like a lot of new music (what a prick, eh?).

PAULYBEE2656 06.14.2008 05:15 PM

hey glice.. 100% agree with you. im one of the lucky ones tho, my mate manages a record shop so if i buy and destest (and i have to detest a record before i return it) he will take it back in no questions asked....

downloading is just a modern day double tape deck recorder...

atsonicpark 06.14.2008 07:01 PM

I don't want to make a top 30 but I loved new neptune, zs, experimental dental school, thank you, farmers market, boris, daemian frost, secret chiefs 3, the fall, autechre, kayo dot, polysics... the new stereolab's out?!?!

So far, a good year for muzak.

atsonicpark 06.14.2008 07:13 PM

Oh, also, the new scissor shock album should be done very very soon, I'll get that to whoever wants it. should be on many people's top 30 lists. no kidding, it's the best thing we've ever done!
