Found this on YouTube:

David Bowie - Changes - Hunky Dory (1971) - Vinyl vs CD

IMHO, the vinyl wins by a landslide! The vinyl sounds so alive - it makes you want to turn it up. The CD sounds so dull, compressed and thin. Blah!

What do you think?

I think I may put together a couple vinyl vs CD comparison videos for YouTube.  :)

Well, that 1999 CD reissue seems to be poorly mastered, but from my experience, a well mastered LP will kill a well mastered CD anytime. That's why I'm selling my CD collection.

It makes me want to make a CD vs. vinyl comparison video. Many times I've been asked to make such type of comparisons but I've never responded to those requests because of the controversy it may have caused...

CD sounds thin compared to the Vinyl. The vinyl wins by a landslide
