Just received 2 books (one of them is audiobook) and 2 The Limousines CDs from Eric Victorino.
Who uses CD anymore?
Reviving this thread as I got a little surprise in the mail. I had pre-ordered this box set a while back and hadn't heard much for a while, but got this puppy at the door before I even got a shipment notice. Apologies for the graininess, using my POS work phone. Man, I forgot just how much I love World Coming Down, easily Type O's most underrated album, IMO.
I think WCD may be their most depressing album, you can really feel the heavy weight in some of the songs.
So is that the RoadRunner box set?
It is indeed, so no Dead Again. Wish it also included The Least Worst Of, as that had some unique tracks and edits.
I noticed even spotify doesn't have Dead Again.
Bummer the band and all things TON died with Pete.
So I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed with the Ozzy boxset. Includes all his albums (apart from Talk of the Devil), an album of B-sides (some I'd never even heard, despite being a fan for 30 years), and a flexi-disc of a cool, very 80's sounding "See You on the Other Side", complete with backing vocals and saxamaphone solo.
As a fan of vinyl, the last few albums I've bought really haven't sounded that great, I thought it might be my needle or something, but these sound amazing, haven't gotten through all of them, but so far, fantastic pressings!
My post recent purchase was Ola's Master of the Universe. I dig it!
I went bonkers over the holiday, got a few albums as gifts, got a bunch of $$ too, which I also promptly converted to albums. For the next couple of months, I will be avoiding the record shops, needless to say. This is just a sample;
(Bad Religion, Bad Brains, Crimson Glory, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas box set, Death Breath, Red Fang, Royal Blood, Napalm Death)
(Mantronix, Oddisee, Black Milk, The Coup, Brand Nubian, Paris, Naught by Nature, Gangsta Boo)
and a bunch of other stuff
(Third World, Valerie June, Priest, Dream Wife, Major Lazer, Noise Unit, Adia Victoria, Birdy, Ari Lennox)
I so so so so so miss CD shopping. I still would, if I had a real place to store them. Right now, my ~2,000 or so are in boxes, up on shelves near the ceiling in the garage. it's been years since I've bought a CD...probably 10?
Before that, I used to work at two record stores (one for used CDs and one for new) and miss it a lot. Paid for shit, though.
I count myself lucky that we have some decent record stores in AZ to buy CDs. I have been holding back as of late (wedding planning, paying out debt, boring stuff) but if I stream an album and it is killer, I make a quick run to pick it up when I can. I have a few large plastic bins in my garage currently filled with CDs since I don't have my new office set up yet but am looking forward to unboxing them.
I need to hit Zia now that I'm nearby one with work.
So this is gonna be my final music haul of 2020. Too many unplanned expenses have fallen my way, and records are pricey, so despite my LP addiction, I gots no choice but to cut it off here for a while. Still, I think these'll keep me happy for a little while at least
Something to be said..I was bored with this. Most of my initial Sabbath exposure, ngl, was Speak of the Devil. Columbia House did it.
To get back to proper listening, I bought another copy for car:
Okay, I've been going a little nuts with the music splurge, need to take a break again for the sake of my bank account! This is but a sample of the latest acquisitions;
