i never bought tapes cause i wasn't old enough to have money or enough interest, but i am all for bringing tapes back in place of CDs
cds were a downgrade in technology

who cares if you can fit more stuff? that's fuckin gay, why would you want 4000 hours of gucci mane?

tapes were the shit, made the artists make better music imo

Yeah, CDs represent the first steps of digital technology while late tape technology represents the Peak of magnetic recording.

Theres a reason why producers shoot their shit thru tape before puttin it down to CDs and why people refer Wax instead of CDs.

when ppl were bumping the DANCE MAX cds, the real people were still puttin out tape.

the best thing about tapes was their durability. you can even repair tapes. i don't think thats possible with any other music medium.

nothing else about tapes is good.


i can fit about 131 mp3s on cd and pop it in my car stereo. tape maxes out at 90 min=30 songs appx



the tape hiss was horrible. and it got worse with time.

the speed of rewind and fastforward was bad too. i even had a turbo rewind on my deck and it still was shitty.


I think TSA is getting records confused with tapes.
