Re: Some discs from the past - the test of time ?

***Thanks bro -- you ever use them before ? $5.00 is awesome for that disc.


Excellent vendor just like that place out in NJ. They run a handful of $5 overstock CD's each week on Wednesdays, but often pull titles from the list once they move a few.

Re: Some discs from the past - the test of time ?

I had a number of these titles, but cleared them out because they were collecting dust. Not a single one in my collection now. Probably should have kept the Z Lot Z. I listened to some of their stuff on youtube recently and it sounded quite good. As for the others on this list I only remember Scenar...

Re: HAKEN / Aquarius & Visions re-masters.

I just bought the Visions 2CD. I traded my original away for some reason? I've been on a Haken kick of late revisiting all of their releases. It's funny how they all have a signature "Haken" sound, but they are all different - though good. I really like the craziness of Aquarius. Visions i...

I was just wondering if you were going to post a list since you're a long time regular. Although my list is a bit different than yours, I'm digging the Hemina quite a bit as well.

Re: My Top 10 of 2016.

Impressed a few others seem to like Dream Theater as much as me. I have 3 other buddies which listen to mainly the same stuff and two of them hate it and one loves it?

Also, I actually like the new Votum. However, I can hardly consider it the same band without the previous awesome vocalist.

WOW! I know we listen to the same stuff, but our lists seem quite close on placement this year. Probably the closest ever. I kicked around Redemption & Odd Logic before deciding on Serious Black for my #10, but ultimately I had a tie there. Hemina was difficult to place with it having fewer spin...

4. Avantasia - Ghostlights, the only problem with it at all is Michael Kiske's mealy-mouthed performance. Other than him failing miserably, the album is pomposity at its best.

The Conjuring 2...

Typically, sequels are mediocre at best. However, I found this one to be very good. It started slow, but came around and became quite entertaining. If you like horror flicks with a decent story - definitely check it out. This one has more moments than the original that might make you jump.

It always sounded way better for some reason and I wondered why I didn't like it more right away. Nonethe...
