'Another birthday for the CD has come and gone and yet the damn things just won?t die. On Aug. 17th, 1982, the Compact Disc was born into an age of rampant consumerism that was the 1980s. Big hair was in, big vinyl and the big snarls of tape from cassettes was out.

The CD of course wasn?t without its drawbacks.'
