Well okay, that's probably not exciting to most of you, especially you older folks who lived through the era of records. But I recently read in Businessweek that vinyl sales have gone up by 330% since their all time low in 2006*, so I guess records are trendy now. Anyway, I don't think I would've ever bought this record if my boyfriend (who is obsessed with vinyl...he buys 1-2 per week and was trying to justify spending $100 on a particular rare album the other day. Sheesh!) hadn't bought me a turntable and my first record for my birthday last month. So now I feel obligated to start buying them and have an excuse to do so. Plus, I like how some albums come with an MP3 download.

*And apparently, record sales have gone up on Amazon by 745% since 2008!
