Re: Temple of the Dog Reunite for First Ever Tour

The LP that comes with this offer is single disc version of the album, in no frills packaging, and a plain white sleeve with no insert. Otherwise sound quality has been reported as "fine". You buy...

Re: The Monkees' first album in 20 years, 'Good Times'

Agreed. Micky was not only their best singer, but one of the best of his generation, and also highly underrated. If you really go back and listen to their catalog, you'll notice that on many of their...

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I asked the same question about a year ago. Never got a reply. Just seems crazy to me that you wouldn't considering how much some of these cost, unless you were doing it soley as a collectibility...

Re: Prince dead at 57. RIP

The only version I've heard by Prince is that demo version duet with Appalonia, as it was originally a possible song for inclusion on an Appalonia 6 album. According to former Prince guitarist Dez...

Re: Prince dead at 57. RIP

Most of his albums post 1994 are out of print. I believe a lot of it had to do with his battles with Warner Brothers over his masters. Sadly, once he got them back, we never got to find out what game...

Re: Record Store Day, Sat April 16, 2016

I think this one may have actually been one of those "pre-release" titles instead of an "Exclusive", unlike the 10" they also had out for RSD. In that case, you can count on more coming out in the...

Re: The VINYL Thread!

It rather appropriately came out on April Fool's Day. Like a lot of new albums these days, there was about a month delay between the CD/Digital version and when the Vinyl version comes out. Oh, and...

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I already had the 30th of Ziggy, which sounds amazing, but bought all the others except for Pin-Ups, and they sound eaqually great. The fact that they also pretty faithfully reproduced all of the...

Re: The VINYL Thread!

What you're looking for falls more under the realm of Lounge/Cocktail music, more so than jazz. STP would often throw elements of those genres into their tunes, and often a bit of Bossa Nova, too....

Re: Nothing But Thieves (new UK band)

Funny you should mention this, as I was just checking out the album today. I agree on the Jeff Buckley comparison, and really like the record. Favorite track on it so far is "Graveyard Whistling".

Re: Stone Temple Pilots "fire" Scott Weiland

They didn't receive nearly the same promotion an STP album would have, even though they were on the same label. Many of the songs were written at the same time as Tiny Music...From The Vatican Gift...

Re: The Monkees' first album in 20 years, 'Good Times'

Adam is actually one of the perfect people to do this album. The production work he's done on other records has been strong, and let's the artist sound like the artist. Plus, he's well steeped in...

Re: Stone Temple Pilots "fire" Scott Weiland

Exactly, DVD Josh. As I've stated before, Scott Weiland was just one aspect of the band. The other members were by no means just a "backing band". Most of the songwriting, minus the lyrics, came...

Re: David Bowie -- "Blackstar" -- January 8, 2016 -- New Album

Well, here in the US, at least. He had plenty of #1 albums in the UK. That said, when you look back on the actual US chart numbers for his considerable quality output, it is truly amazing that many...

We also lost singer Stevie Wright from The Easybeats, and drummer John Bradbury from The Specials in the past week, too.

Re: 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Sounds like hipster sour grapes from someone who clearly knows nothing about the band, their music, thier influence, or lengthy career.

Cheap Trick had A LOT of influence, particularly on some of...

Re: Metric

I feel pretty much the same. The album has grown on me some, but overall, I still consider it a disappointment. It's not that I think the music is bad, per se, it's more that I just don't care as...

Me, too, as well as the overpriced Spoon 10". $12 for two songs? It's usually why I avoid buying 10" or 7" singles unless there are at least four or more tracks on them - they are usually way...

Re: Adele - 25 (November 20th)

Absolutely untrue. Believe it or not, there are actually plenty of younger people who still but physical media. Certainly not as many as there used to be, but they do exsist.
