It's so easy now to just download an album and listen to it. But you never really experience an album in that format. You can enjoy the music or admire the band, but you don't get the complete image of what the band was producing through that aspect. The connection with an album to me comes with the synthesis of the entire packaging of a record. I know I personally spend hours pouring into the band's art direction decisions on a record, whether or not they include a lyric sheet, whether they do a gatefold packaging or not, even what pictures they chose for the lining of the record. And of course, a record simply sounds better on vinyl. The tiny pops or cracks just add something to the feel of an album. The active listening aspect of it is appealing as well. Having to get up to change the record after the side is over has made me for receptive to listening to an album, instead of just putting it on as background noise
