Personally, I think vinyl records are coming back. After making an unexpected disappearance in the early 2000s, vinyl records are officially becoming a trend once again.

Before Christmas, I simply asked my parents for a record player for Christmas and I was disappointed about what my mom told me; “No, record players are out of style and are just a fad that’ll go away pretty quickly,”

Right after she told me this, I took my record player off of my wish list. When Christmas came around, I figured I wasn’t going to end up with a record player. But when I opened my gift, I was completely surprised that I received one.

Immediately after I opened my record player and set it up, it was time to open the record.

I didn’t research on how to handle records before I got my turntable because I was told no, so I figured I didn’t need to waste my time on something irrelevant. Since I didn’t research, I touched the grooves of the vinyl record immediately thinking it’d be fine. But I was lectured for touching them. Then I decided to research about records itself and how to start a vinyl collection.

While researching, I noticed there are so many things recently about record players and vinyl that it blew my mind on how popular they were blowing up on the internet.

I noticed I wasn’t the only one who wanted a record player. I started noticing my friends and other classmates either got jealous or received a record player for Christmas too.

It’s almost impossible to find any music album that isn’t on vinyl these days. Anything from Elvis Presley’s old and classic albums to something new like Panic! At the Disco’s “Pray for the Wicked.”

I’ve seen quite a bit of people with record players and vinyl records themselves and I’m glad about that.
