Over-pricing is what has killed my local record stored and all but killed HMV over here as well. I don't buy vinyl because I don't have the space for a collection and don't yet own a vinyl player, but if I did, I wouldn't mind paying extra for the format because you are getting a greater product. Charging anymore than 15 - 18 for a CD after it's release is obscene, and simply isn't going to float in today's market.
On topic, Queensryche, the actual one, not Geoff Tate's one, are playing here in November. IS it worth my time checking them out?
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.
