Cool to see people buying vinyl, kind of brings up the elephant in the room for me though: As of last year, I finally kicked my almost decade long vinyl addiction. Basically it came down to spend - what with having a mortgage and more bills these days - either facilitating my vinyl habit or my comicbook habit. It tore me up, as I had a lot of stuff I really, really loved. The fact was it was starting to take up a lot space too, and I'm the kind of guy who's either all in or all out. So, I found a few people local who were interested in buying and I offloaded in bulk. I've gone down from some 400+ records to only 10 or so rare and valuables, i.e. an OG of MBV's Loveless, 10" Newspaper edition of The King of Limbs, test presses, friend presses, some Cure, some Converge, et cetera. Sometimes I miss it. Sometimes I don't.

A European tour press of You Fail Me on 180 gram black, a clear copy of All We Love We Leave Behind and just one of the 2010 Jane Doe represses on clear green.

I hear ya Blue. You got my on the vinyl kick and even still, I only have maybe 10 or so total I've actually bought, simply due to cost and not having much room for storage. In fact I pre-ordered the long awaited repress of Russian Circles "Station" on 180g Black and Green, but that's the first record I've bought in well over a year. I think for myself, having some limited or rare records from groups I really dig is how I'll roll with it. Heck my most prized is my autographed 7" that came with my copy of Steve Vai's "The Story of Light" He only signed 50 and I have number 30. I do have my parents collection of a lot of classic stuff, sadly some are pretty worn out, but there are some jewels like a pristine copy of Queen's "The Game" as well as a mint copy of The Rolling Stones "Some Girls" and the always rocking ZZ Top's "Eliminator".

With upper management looking to promote me this year or early next to a full Technical Manager and more than likely move me elsewhere in state or out of state to my own store to run it's technical side operations, I'm glad I've kept my collection down. I have enough stuff as it is :lol:

... I HEAR IT DOUBLY CLEAAAAAAAAAAAR. :heart: :heart: :heart:

I've been listening to the hell out of this album. Loving the short length of the songs and the sharing of vocal duties between Avey and Panda and how it's sometimes hard to determine who's actually singing. Reminds me a lot of their live recordings from the MPP era where the singers basically yelp at each other through their songs, whether or not they were on lead vocals. "Who Could Win a Rabbit" has always been one of my favorite AC jams, and I feel like this whole records sort of embraces the fury and wackiness of that song. The whole thing makes me want to dance, which is probably the best thing I can say about an album. I imagine I'll be jamming out to this one for a long time, and I'm so happy that there's new AC that I love.

Favorite tracks; "Natural Selection" / "On Delay" / "Spilling Guts"

And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

:fap:

Tracks six and onwards are damned near perfection. So fucking good. Basically the soundtrack to your twisted, euphoric nightmares. I heard 'Ghost of Red Hook' today on the radio at work and it turned me to jelly water instantly. Downloaded the record as soon as I got home. Man, that fucking song...

Recently I've revisited Judas Priest's Nostradamus. When it first came out years ago, I thought it had some good tracks but was an overall weak follow-up to their reunion album, Angel of Retribution. Upon hearing it with fresh ears again, however, I think the album holds up very well, and it strongly reflects their epic fantasy style of the 70s while giving it a modern progressive touch. The lyrics are predictable, as usual for Priest, but Rob Halford's voice is on point, and he gives what is probably one of the best performances of his career with the band. Originally I'd been somewhat disappointed by his conservative use of his signature high pitch scream, but I think with an album like this it was better than he didn't overdo it. That title track has always been one of my favorite songs, and I'm glad it still holds up as well.

I'm glad you like it. I did not fall in love with it instantly, and some tracks, I really love. (Floridada, Golden Gal) But it's not quite up there, but maybe I'll grow to love it more over time.

I was actually surprised it didn't get better reviews than it did, but I guess that's one of the things that makes the world interesting. Some people love things, while others say, "eh." Which is why I try to take any and all reviews with a grain of salt.

Luckily for us, for every record we're kinda eh on, there's one that makes us very happy, makes riding the train bearable, helps us get out of bed in the morning, etc.

Very nice. Great winter music.

There's this band, Frameworks, I've been listening to the last couple days. Apparently they just signed to Deathwish. I think you might like them, Blue. Check out Worn Out

I remember Frameworks from the buzz of when their debut dropped a few years ago now. I don't think I ever listened to them though, and I also didn't know that they'd signed to Deathwish. Thanks for the rec - I'll have to check them out.

Went and saw Joe Satriani tonight. Absolutely fantastic show. Played all the old favorites along with a bunch of songs off of his new album. First time seeing him with his solo act and boy did they deliver the goods. Can't wait for the next tour :lol:

As a footnote, one of the best light shows/stage setups I've seen. Those freaking stage lights man, I want a set for our animatroic stage at work. :lol: (The huge round ones at the back) They no doubt cost a mint each.

Love the sound of the new Deftones single: Prayers / Triangles

Pretty heady stuff, just wish it had more bite to it. Stoked for the new record come April regardless.

Not too much into the song, but the visuals would be awesome for a transparent display situated between the audience and the performers.


I don't know too many things about rap music, but I fell in love with Imperial by Denzel Curry.

Another new Deftones song from the new album: Doomed User

This one's more overtly metal with a bit of prog in there. That chorus gives me goosebumps though. I can't believe after all these years I still get excited about this band just the same as when I was in early high school, even considering how much my taste in music has evolved since then; their sound has matured as well. Absolutely awesome!

Oh yeah, loving all the visuals associated with this release. Something about flamingos too; they really, really stink in real life when you're close to them, and I believe they have nasty temperaments too (IIRC). So, one of the themes you could construe from the art and title is that whilst things can look, or seem, beautiful from a distance, they are in actuality ugly and undesirable.

I have been listing to Kendrick Lamar's untitled unmastered on spotify as of late; the album is more experimental than his previous one last year. A couple of tracks are quite odd with the beat stopping and starting again during the song but overall I thought it was a great album. My favorite tracks have to be track 6, track 5 and track 8.

I really like the groove of the new DronesAlbum, dirty, broken rock.

The new Perfume album is, as expected far from the consistency of their last full length LP, Level3. Cosmic Explorer seems fitting, it's tracks are of a greater variety of styles than the Club Banger that was their previous outing. While the album original tracks are pretty cool, all the mediocre singles since Level3 are bustling at the end of the track list, which is quite unfortunate. The new mixes somehow robbed Sweet Refrain of its only good part. Also, I really hoped for a revamp of Display... Unfortunately it's not on there. Oh well, I'll just listen to the album tracks and everything will be ok. STORY is especially interesting, it sounds like a bridge between Capsules two last outings. It starts with experimental sounds from right out of Caps Lock and evolves into a club banger from Wave Runner. As split as this song are my feelings for the album as a whole, rather torn. There's a few cool tracks of great variety (everything up to Track 6 & Tokimeki Lights), but also some of the weakest tracks (the rest, except for 11,12,13 - those are ok) I've ever heard from them.

Not only did Etsuko Yakushimaru grace us with a cool new single for Sailor Moon Crystal III, there's also a new Soutaiseiriron record in the making. While I didn't really connect with their single Ultra Soda, at first, it has has suddenly clicked a few days ago when I went on a nostalgia Soutaiseiriron binge. I have high hopes for the rest of the album. All their other outings were on heavy rotation after all.

Yes! I've had this one on rotation for the last week or so. Overall I don't think it's as good as their last album, but still very enjoyable and very thoroughly Drones. 'Taman Shud' is the quirkiest most unconventional track (the video is pretty hilarious too; basically poking fun of a lot of Australian culture), second only to 'Boredom' in that regard, but my favourites are 'Then They Came For Me' and 'To Think That I Once Loved You'. Both have those weird, off-kilter melodies and operatic vibes that I love about their music.

Also, Google the Taman Shud Case. Great bit of Australian Cold War intrigue and mystery right there.

Oh man, the Taman Shud case is pretty crazy... Love it!
Yes, I thought that it might be a reckoning with Australian culture... I mean, I might miss out on quite some allusions, then again, those I gather are pretty hilarious ("You came her on a fucking boat!!"), and some, like the Taman Shud case educate me :)
