Before weighing vinyl's, ahem, good and bad sides, it helps to know how records are made. In brief, an engineer such as Gonsalves receives mixed recordings from the studio or even a band's laptop to master and cut to a lacquer, which is mailed off to be impressed upon WhatD I Say - Various - Privé (Vinyl sets of metal stampers which will press hundreds or thousands of PVC pellets into vinyl LPs.
Not every mastering engineering cuts lacquers — lathes haven't been made in decades and are LP) short supply, which keeps owners like Gonsalves busy — and Gonsalves is often sent digital files to work from rather than the all-analog tape one might expect. It's a little bit more idiot-proof and a little bit less technical.

Fighting the loudness wars: Digital music engineering, particularly for radio-bound music, is often marred by a volume arms race, which leads to fatiguing, hyper-compressed songs that squish out the dynamics and textures that give recordings their depth and vitality.

Vinyl can struggle with highs and lows: High-pitched frequencies drum cymbals, hi-hats and sibilance think "s" sounds can cause the ugly crackle of distortion, while deep bass panned between the left and right channels can knock around the needle.
