Re: I "might" have to go digital soon .... need some ideas.

Larry, In terms of your car, finding a new head unit that has both auxiliary inputs and plays CDs isn't that difficult. Depending on the model of your car, installation can be very simple too. You should be able to pick up a decent stereo that has aux input along with USB and SD card slots and Blue...

Re: I "might" have to go digital soon .... need some ideas.

All good ideas ---- so my next question is: What is the best way to play the music from a PC ? Unlike Sparky (sorry bro), I've got the purist gene. I've got excellent sound systems and pulling me away from my beloved Marantz and Onkyo dedicated CD players won't be easy. My laptop is not bluetooth c...

Re: JD MILLER - World War X

I tried both of those videos, and then I went on to check out their other stuff on You Tube ....... at first I wasn't sure what type of music they play, lots of it sounded like heavy melodic metal, but then I heard those poppy AoR choruses and figured that they are a heavy AoR band ? Very simplisti...

JD MILLER - World War X

The 2nd album by this oddly named Swedish band (no one in the band is actually called JD Miller) is quicky becoming one of my faves of 2017. Thick riffing, catchy melodies, very good vox, all the ingredients are there for me to love. And the production is top notch. Their first disc was forgettable ...

Re: HELKER - Firesoul

Side note; it's probably just me, but I think "Master Of The Moon" is the most underrated Dio album. It's slow, but really good. Goldy's my favorite of Dio's guitar players (solo band only, obviously). Campbell and Aldrich are better than Goldy IMO, but I love most of his stuff with Dio. ...

I liked the first track, but this one's not nearly as good. It feels tired and completely by-the numbers. It's exactly why I worry about Frontiers having songwriters making far too many albums. They deplete their best ideas for projects that make one album and disappear. Weird but I'm not surprised...

Glynn Morgan has to re-record all vocals, otherwise it would make no sense...
