How to be right, but miss the point…

I very much agree with Nick Hodgson from the Kaiser Chiefs, but I still believe they could provide a (legal) free download with the 2LP vinyl edition of their latest album…

I saw the vinyl edition of our new album in the dressing room yesterday. Many people have written in the past about the beauty of vinyl and the feeling you get when holding the sleeve and removing the record. I am a vinyl fan already, but just then I realised that this is what I want people to experience when we make an album. I don’t want people to download it three weeks before it’s supposed to be out because an unknown person somewhere in the world has uploaded it. I don’t want people to click on ‘Play’ and hear it through laptop speakers, skip through it and then get on the internet and comment about it.
