What caused the vinyl resurgence?

list is digs bish
1Massive Attack

Writing an essay that explores what caused vinyl to come back in style over the past decade... problem is I don't really have first hand experience with vinyl/not actually a vinyl collector, but I know a lot of you guys are. I pretty much want to know what makes vinyl appealing to you and why you think the medium has came back, while CDs are pretty much done for.
Superfuzz Bigmuff

My main angles are 1) The rise of streaming sales and illegal downloading/Death of CDs
The Dusk in Us

2) A strive for intimacy/emotional connection
4Das Racist
Shut Up, Dude

and 3) The big artwork/packaging and the hipster aesthetic
5Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface

Any thoughts/help would be much appreciated.
