Look at the overall figures of CDs vs albums, not just the percentage up/down change, and clearly CD is a vastly more popular medium than vinyl. And I say this sitting in my basement room with perhaps 1200 LPs that I still spin on my Michell and Sansui turntables -- I never left vinyl. But it remains a niche market. I has always been my hope that LPs will make a comeback based in part on its merits as a physical product: large photos, readable lyrics on the sleeve, gatefolds, all the wonderful aspects of LPs that make them mean so much more than a plastic disc in a plastic (poorly designed) box.
