Especially when a lot of vinyls include a digital download anyways. I want more of that happening, honestly... I noticed, for example, that the new Black Sabbath album on vinyl included a digital download and on Amazon, the vinyl was sold with "AutoRip." That's pretty cool.
I need to hurry up and listen to my vinyl copy of 13 because the fucking mastering really sucks on the CD...
