Spot on. I'm not even sure why the hell they bother to press music on them because almost every other format sounds superior to pic discs. You might as well face it that collecting picture vinyls has little if no difference at all to collecting stamps or hockey cards.

And there isn't anything really wrong with that, granted you have a passion for the subject. I like Metal, thus I "collect" Pic LP's from time-to-time. If you like Hockey, then you collect the cards and that's a reflection of your passion for it.

Almost all the Pic LP's I've ever bought were albums I held in high regards. Musically and also ones who's art work is just as amazing as the music and fit well within the format.

This is why I am waiting for an All the Witches Dance Pic LP...

Brilliant cover art and record that should be paid tribute to with a Pic LP edition.

A "collector nerd" is a person why buys everything, regardless it he likes it or not. He just wants to take pictures to show off on the internet. He doesn't base what he spends his money on by the quality of the music or his passion for it, but by how limited or cherish it is by others. Also for status points.

I'm not like that. If you gave me a Krieg Pic LP, I'd microwave it.

Not always, I have some pic.LPs that sound just fine.

Back to your initial question...

It's not a very elegant solution -well it can be when done properly-, but I've seen that friends screwed wood borders to their walls where they can slide the PicLPs in. Do you know what I mean?


*edit* Found a picture on the net. Like this...




If you are manual gifted and have some spare time -which you have not as far as I know Wink- you can ornament the borders, e. g. burn symbols in with a soldering gun or something like that.

Use plastic bags and double face tape to tape them to the wall

I would buy this without a second thought. Hopefully I.T. will do a pic disc for Secret Sudaria(as well as black of course)..

That's true, I have never seen Soulburn - 'Feeding on Angels' on regular LP, as I own the Pic disc.
Masterpiece from beginning to end, both cover and recording.

Back to the topic -

If an album/band I really worship releases both formats, chances are I am getting the regular LP first.
Mainly because I can post up the vinyl sleeve on the wall AND still listen to the record.
Where as if I have a pic disc it's going to be:
A) Have it hanging on the wall
or
B) Listen to it and that's it.

It's too much of a hassle of removing/listening/putting back pic discs on the wall, as a previous user mentioned.

Regardless, in the end its YOUR vinyl and YOU choose it's final destination whether its on the wall, on the shelves, record player or microwave.

Some pic disks sound damn good. I think it all depends on how you take care of it. The problem is that you can't see any scratches on old pic disks so you assume it's the format that sounds like shit. I listen to my pic disks.
