Universals's decision to import the US picture disc pressing of Sam's Town into the UK and not press it on plain vinyl in the UK is just lazy. I buy vinyl because I want the best sound quality, I buy vinyl because I do not want the loud compressed squash on the CD. So why the hell would I want a picture disc? Most vinyl buyers buy vinyl for the sound quality and pictures discs are rubbish. They sound terrible and have a very short term life. Come on Universal press up Sam's Town on plain vinyl? Hot Fuss is fantastic on vinyl where as both Hot Fuss and Sam;s Town on CD are just compressed squash.
