Half-arsed fallacy

This is a great logical argument:

1) A pretentious man claims that CDs aren’t as good as vinyl, despite the fact that they are;

2) If you compress a song to MP3, it doesn’t sounds all that great compared to an uncompressed song. People increasingly listen to MP3s on their personal music players, instead of, err, tapes;

3) Overproduced records by mediocre bands can sound quite good, but aren’t as distinctive as great records by great bands. There are more of the former than the latter;

THEREFORE: music is dead as an artform.
