Slim Shady's about to slide down the chimney.
In what can only be deemed a surprising, Shyamalan-esque plot twist, vinyl records have become a modern-day musical staple. Between the appealing visual design and notably warmer sonic quality, there's much to gain from securing a record player and decent speaker set-up. And if you're worried your favorite album won't be available for purchase, give it time. Artists are beginning to catch on to the appeal and reissuing beloved works accordingly.
