Jason Aldean is one of the most commercially successful acts in popular music in the past 10 years.
It's been a decade since he released an album that didn't chart in the top 5.
He's enjoyed 3 straight LPs that leaked at number 1.

Emotion is key..
I have to refute a lot of comments here on the definition of what is good music..
Good music does not define the topic at hand, nor the genre, nor the style, nor whether there is words/lyrics..
It's is defined by how well the emotion/goal/objective is achieved in regards to the topic, genre, style it is intended for..
So yes, if the song is about sex and drugs, then pull that off well in bringing the audience into that picture, then it's good music..
Not every song must be about love topic..
And yes, if metal music is about anger and power, then pull that off well to bring the audience in that picture..
And regards to lyrics, there are also a lot of great instrumentals around.. if lyrics are to be included.. then make sure the lyrics carry out it's meaning well..
Each genre/style is pulling off an emotion.. it's about pulling that emotion off..
The problem with today's music is they forgot emotion, they just play fashion..
Aldean masterfully plays with your emotions in his hits "If My Truck Could Talk" and "Big Green Tractor."

If you listen to the great Beatles records, the earliest ones where the lyrics are incredibly simple. Why are they still beautiful? Well, they're beautifully sung, beautifully played, and the mathematics in them is elegant. They retain their elegance.
Jason Aldean masterfully retains these qualities with a modern day twist. Truly one of the few artists who innovates in his genre yet maintains what is truly most important in music: Emotion.

Fuck off you contrarian prick.

In "Old Boots, New Dirt" Jason masterfully satirizes your average conservative, southern American. The chords blend wonderfully with Aldean's smooth, honky-tonk twang in songs like "Burnin' it Down." My personal favorite is "If My Truck Could Talk." In Jason's modern-day magnum opus, he describes his pick up truck. A truck that holds many emotional values and sentiments for Jason. This old truck has stories to tell – it’s seen some things. It’s been in a few compromising situations (“fence post, door dent”) and it’s also witnessed its driver doing some things he’d rather not remember. This avant garde pièce de résistance of modern country will be considered one of the greats for many years to come.

There are so many better ways to listen to music and vinyl collectors know it. That's why they always have to give excuses to why they collect useless old plastic

I don't give any excuses, it's just a hobby of mine. I understand the aversion to it, I just legitimately think it's fun to go in record shops and see them line my shelf.
>>
>>61976296
Of course there are. I like going to shops and talking with people and listening to music I'd otherwise not be exposed to. I could sit in my basement and listen to perfect flacs all day long but that's not engaging enough for me

>>61980412
also if I'm using an o2 amp and headphones do I use PHONO or LINE?
>>
>>61980412
Have to? No.
Should you? Yes.

The purpose of aligning it ensures you don't get wobble near the center grooves. Ideally, the stylus should start and finish at the same angle, perfectly perpendicular to the record, but unless it's a linear tracking table, it's impossible, but angling it properly can get pretty close. It's a set it and forget it thing, unless you bump it or replace the cart.

Why would I ever go to a record store over just ordering shit off Discogs? If I'm looking for a classic/well known album is it almost easier to just get it off of Discogs/Juno?

Getting this booty busted over someone elses hobby
>>
>>61981681
Fair enough, I actually do enjoy that.

Should I be troubling myself thinking about different pressings and shit like that when starting out or should I just go to the store, browse and just pick up whatever I like be it new/used?
>>
>>61981858
Depends on what kind of collector you want to be. Do you just want any copy of an album? Does it need to be in tip-top shape or can you handle some audible crackles?

Personally, I try to be a higher-end collector which mostly means original presses in VG+ or higher. Costs me more dough sometimes, but it's got this additional coolness to know I'm holding something like an original copy of In Utero and not just some repress
>>
>>61981858
personally i don't worry too much about pressings
i've been burned with maybe 1 record out of 300 that was a bad enough pressing that i notice the quality is bad (a Bob Dylan one)
it wouldn't be fun to me to be constantly having to crosscheck all the different pressings and make sure i have the right one
i just worry more about looking at the record before i buy and make sure there aren't any bad scratches/scuffs on it (another thing you can't do when you buy online)
and a lot of record stores have a turntable to give 'er a listen before you take it home
>>
>>61975717

>>61977787
I'd leave them alone. Sometimes I'll turn the bass up if I'm playing an electronic record but that's about it.
>>
>>61981932
I just like having a legit physical copy. Original pressings interest me as a cool boon, but not something that I NEED to have. I feel like it would just stress me out trying to have only original pressings.

As long as it's not a bootleg/unofficial.
>>
>>61981858
yea some good points here >>61981932

personally i buy records to listen to them first and foremost. i think if you're buying records to try to get rich, you're fucking up. the vinyl bubble will burst before too long.

as a general rule, i try to go for original pressings if i can. they generally are worth the most money and often times have better sound than represses. but if there is a scratched up original copy of In Utero and a flawless repress of In Utero, i'm going for the repress. (also have to factor in the price, how bad the scratches are.....it all just depends)
>>
>>61982041
Yeah. I'm still a student so honestly going for original pressings is not something I can afford anyway
>>
>>61982065
If you're smart, OG presses are cheaper than reissues

New reissue of The Queen is Dead is about 26
Immaculate OG pressing is 20

I got two Fugazi OGs for 10 a pop as well

Really the average /mu/ user's taste is not expensive. It only gets bad when you start diving into real rare psych from other countries or private press shit. And for situations like that, reissue labels like Light in the Attic are the daysavers

>>

It's all based on either your knowledge of records or how quality your local stores are

My local store puts loads of time into making sure a record's pressing is as certain as possible. I may be biased because i work for said local store and do my absolute best to make sure we are accurate on pressings though.

If a store doesn't list the pressing, you can pop the catalog numbers verbatim into discogs. Things like the Beatles and Bob Dylan have so many pressings its fucking awful to try to navigate, but lesser things are easy enough usually. Discogs even lets you look up how much a pressing has sold for in various conditions lately. Some hacks may see the avg selling price and mark a record 15 when in reality that's what it is going for in mint condition, thus their VG+ copy should be a bit cheaper

If you get real good, you can look at a record's center label and date it though. Impulse! put out lots of 70s reissues with labels that the originals never had
>>
If i posted some records i think are bootlegs, would you guys be able to verify for me?
>>
>>61982773
Record store guy

Yes i will do that
>>
>>61982439
Thanks man. I'm looking through Discogs and I can see how you can easily find original pressings now.

What dictates whether an albums original pressing is expensive or not? Does the country matter?
>>
>>61982818
Country does influence it. An OG Japanese issue is usually worth more than a US for whatever reason, but in places where the artist was a Brit and it was released in Bongland first, UK presses tend to be a bit more valued

Also sometimes it works out that an album is released in one country year or two before another. So while a US issue of whatever album is a "first US pressing" it actually isn't really a first press because it came out in Britain a year earlier

Also for most all krautrock, OG German issues are worth WAY more

Main thing that drives price is demand, relevance, popularity, and acclaim. There's this zone out there of hyper expensive collector shit in all genres that may be totally unknown like some Finnish psych dronefolk band from the 70s called International Traveler (even reissues are over 100 USD), but stuff like an OG issue of Remain in Light is only 15-20 bucks

Also from 1990-2008 was the death of the record so less were pressed by major labelsmaking them much more rare. That's how a Nelly record from 2004 ends up being more than a Beatles or Smiths first press
>>
>>61982987
>Also from 1990-2008 was the death of the record so less were pressed by major labels making them much more rare

is that why OG Loveless is so expensive?

Am I better off buying reissues of 90s albums then?
>>
Is wood glue cleaning a good idea?
A lot of my mom's old records have some real gross shit in them that regular cleaning can't get out.
>>
>>61983172
It cost me 90 dollars for an OG issue of In Utero on clear vinyl, so i'd say so

BUT that only really applies to major label releases. I don't know much about what the deal is with Loveless. But its acclaim and relevance and popularity does help keep cost high

But you can get 90s Fugazi, Shellac, etc for decent prices.

Things that started out with no one giving a fuck so real small release, those are worth buckets too (like my OG copy of Bee Thousand my gf got me for my birthday)

>>
>>61983450
I mean unless you're talking to a veteran who can tell you based off catalog number and label what pressing it is, they're going to do the same thing as you and pull up discogs to take a look

There are many hacks in this world of records who grade poorly and are too stupid to list pressing information. A quality store should keep its albums in 12.5'' or greater outer sleeves with a sticker on the outer sleeve listing all relevant info like WRITING ON LABEL, INCLUDES PTD INSERT, 1988 RUSSIAN PRESSING, etc

>>61983450

Are you bothered with what country the issue is from or do you usually just go with whatever cheapest? I can't imagine I would like any of the packaging to be in a foreign language.
>>
>>61983835
I don't really give a fuck but usually Russians have Russian editions and so on, so i'm not going to pay the 16 bucks for shipping

Some stuff is exclusive to a country, like the soundtrack LP to anime film Night on the Galactic Railroad i have. Totally Japanese everything

Usually i just aim for UK or US though. Plenty of those in abundance compared to say a New Zealand pressing
