Streaming and it's not even close. And no guilt. I pay for Spotify and I've bought the entire KISS catalog 4-5 times over so don't even try that trip.

You’re a good poster who never goes away. I’m glad I don’t have to look in the mirror to find another good poster 🤣

I have Amazon Music Unlimited, and I put the entire KISS catalog on "shuffle."
Not perfect, because when a particular song is on many compilation albums, it interprets each one as a separate song, hence I end up skipping past 1 out of every 5 or 6 songs, but I'm okay with that. (just personal preference; everybody has their own tastes of course)

My radio station played 3 straight KISS songs yesterday. God of Thunder, Detroit Rock City and Dr Love. They play KISS a lot so that is how I have been listening to them.

Streaming. Some CD. I'm not, at all, infatuated with physical media (though I like the cover art, etc). It's awkward and inconvenient to take on the go, for one. And most records have shit songs that need to be skipped, which physical media, like cassettes, don't make easy. And just having to store all of it, all the time, like a hoarder ... no. No way. I can't be dealing with that.
Same here.

What dose it say?
I believe it's Joseph Kiss Senior contacting me on the cassette. I don't think he likes Paul's cooking very much.

Sounds like he is saying "Sprouts & Chicken Marinade?". He's like WTF Paul! Put out some new KISS Music, gee!

EVP.mp3

Anyway, I do have some KISS on vinyl and yes, I love play them.

Vinyl at home mostly. If I'm driving & want to hear Kiss specifically I have an old iPad which has tons of classic rock on it (including most non-ballad & non-disco Kiss tunes) that I can hook up to USB in the car - but that's pretty rare except for longer trips. Generally I'm listening to Sirius & flipping around when driving. If I'm not listening to sports or that kind of thing it seems like Kiss pops up quite often on the 70s & 80s stations. Also on the hair metal station & that Ozzy station

I gotta say, hearing Kiss in general does not seem to be a problem these days. I live in Michigan, USA. I hear Kiss over the PA at the supermarket. I hear them at bars via DJ or karaoke or whatever else plenty of times when I'm out like that

Even if I don't queue up Kiss myself it seems like I'm going to hear a song or two or snippets of a Kiss song every so often

But if I'm going to specifically listen to Kiss it's usually at home via vinyl

I mostly listen to CDs and Spotify.
If I'm visiting my Pops, I can listen to the few 8 tracks I still own (DP, RARO & Destroyer)...just for fun...because it's perpetually 1978 at my parents' house.

I still buy vinyl, its what I grew up with, and I love album artwork. Although its for collection purposes and not to listen too. I find it so convenient to call up a song or album on a speaker from anywhere in the house, plus that same speaker will play podcasts for me. Any must have album I will get on Vinyl. I know these smart speakers are not even close to audiophile quality, but there is nothing like calling up any song I want while I am in the shower. Too bad Amazon Rip seems to be dying, the selection seems to be shrinking and a lot of new albums don't offer it. I guess the record companies hate it and want you to buy the same album physically and digitally.

CDs, downloads, and streaming.

If I have something specific I want to listen to before I head out, I may take a CD with me. If not, I either play it off of my iPod or stream from my phone.

I'm not going out of my way to listen to them at the moment.
After mimegate, bobgate and the continual Vinniemessgate I'm taking a break

Always pleasant when a KISS track appears though

Yeah, 8 tracks sucked major ass. They were just a horrible format. Horrible sound quality, the highs were lost after a short amount of time.

Not that long ago I heard Electric Warrior by T. Rex at a friend's house from an 8-track and thought it sounded amazing! Lo-fi, sure, but somehow it fit that album anyway.

I can’t believe this will be the first time since the CD came out that they will sell less this year than vinyls
Vinyl is getting it's revenge for what happened in 1985, when CD crushed vinyl under it's mighty heel.

How the tables have turned...

Vinyl forever.
They haven’t turned. CDs still move far more units than vinyl. Even in terms of sales, CDs are still ahead of vinyl (vinyl records earned $224.1 million over the first six months of 2019, while CDs earned $247.9 million). Given the current trends, It’s likely (though not a given) that vinyl will earn more $$ than CDs next year but that is due to the price mark-up of vinyl records allowed by the nostalgia factor. Even though CD sales are declining, CDs are not disappearing any more than vinyl has.

At any rate, both formats are getting clobbered by streaming.
I’m talking about in the USA. Are you talking globally?
I’m talking about the what has been reported by the RIAA, which was picked up by Rolling Stone and other news outlets. The RIAA reports on the U.S. music industry.

Just, rip rip rip to USB and then it's a no to the destroy of any CD's.

Also you will have no CD's in the car for a thief in the night to steal. Plus any weather that's hot, hot, hotter than hell can not ruin them either.

Rip to USB! :lol:
