Vinyl > Cd

Been on a bit of a vinyl spree over the past couple weeks. A few of them are albums that I already had via digital services (iTunes) or CD's that I purchased, mainly to see if there was a noticeable difference in the tonal qualities. I have to say...vinyl > CD. It's just so much...more full? Anyways, vinyl gets (and wants).
1The Fall Of Troy
Phantom on the Horizon


Just ordered it not 2 minutes ago. Orange vinyl = awesome. Also, cover art is approximately 20 times better than CD cover art.
2Underoath
Lost in the Sound of Separation


Came with my pre-order. Good Lord the vinyl has so much more depth to it's sound.
3Protest The Hero
Fortress


Got it at the show I saw them at a couple months ago. Purple vinyl is pretty neat looking.
4Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything To Nothing


Haven't listened to it yet but from it's deion, it just seemed like an album that would be best on vinyl.
5Botch
Unifying Themes Redux


Unifying Themes...plus a couple of ridiculous covers (Rock Lobster and O'Fortuna), plus a few rare tracks, pus an entire live set. Win.
6Spires
Flowers and Fireworks


Downloaded it (shh) to tide me over until the LP gets here. Pretty great stuff.
7 La Dispute
Untitled 7"


The actual record itself is pretty crazy looking. Songs are fairly ace as well.
8 Thrice
The Alchemy Index Vinyl Box Set


"
Each of the 4 EP's will be pressed on 10" colored vinyl -the Fire EP is red, Water is blue, Earth is brown and Air is on clear vinyl. The discs will be inside a hand-bound hardcover book complete with lyrics, liner notes and commentary from the band.".........sweet. Ordering soon since all I have are digital copies.
9 Battles
Tonto +


Will get just because it's 9 bucks.
10Various Artists
Dark Was The Night


25 bucks but there are quite a few artists featured on it that I like.
11Kings Of Leon
Only By The Night
12Ampere / Daitro
Split


Because emo/screamo is always better on vinyl.
13ISIS
The Red Sea
14 Monty Python
Matching Tie and Handkerchief


I will find this...eventually...
