@ecliptik I like the aesthetics of the discs. But vinyl is functional in a way like no other medium. I don't know if it's thriving because I don't see it around me at all but it survived into the aughts, at least for urban/dance music, because DJs demanded vinyl copies. But even DJs have gone digital now.
