Bodes well for a new D-A-D album :-) Headless Chicken

+1 for vinyl, I'm a big fan. I've never needed convincing but when my Billy Satellite LP turned up and it sounded better than the Rock Candy remaster I stumped up for, it just confirmed what I already knew. Def Leppard's "Pyromania" is another classic example, even the recent remaster doesn't compare to the original wax press.

@PaulF yeah by the time we hit the arena floor it was fine. We were at the back of GA standing and the sound got worse as the show rolled on but we had a great time regardless. How was the roar when Angus showed up, place went mental hey! Great show, so glad I let bygones be bygones and showed up' Axl went on on time, band was on point, other than the muddled sound I have no complaints.

Yeah someone at Sludge posted about the Brisvegas show, 2.5 hours of Gunners goodness, and there's a rumour that Angus Young might show up for a jam, wahoo! I'm outa here, here's to it!

The mercury's at a tepid 43.5 Celsius at the moment, wowzer! Anyone else prepping for the gig?

Fair play. I take it back and stand corrected, based on these replies it seems folks do prefer a shorter albums these days. I still dig 12-15 tracks so I'll be over here in the minority if you need me ;-) I guess for me it takes so long for my favourite artists to get new material out that I'm all about a more-the-merrier approach. Re Toto, I'm only a casual fan but stick to the first fou

After reading some of the best-of lists going around recently I thought I'd revisit these two discs since they kept popping up. I have to say that Damned was my favourite but I'm finding Blessed is the more consistent of the two, anyone else? Neither as immediate as the first two Sixx:AM discs but if I had to pick one it would be Blessed. They're nothing if not prolific albeit a bit same-s

@Purple, interesting to hear that. The general consensus as far as I can tell is that albums are far too short these days. Is it a Toto thing or your opinion in general? I'm just curious. I'm in the albums-are-too short camp but I'll admit to avoiding artists that insist on 6-minute or more tracks, I'd much rather 14 4-min tracks than five 10 minute tracks any day.

Will watch the new 24 with some trepidation, I think it blew itself out to the point of no return but I'll keep an open mind. Also just started: Pure - Amish mafia running drugs based on true events, go figure!? Mary Kills People - light-hearted if black humoured take on assisted suicide Cardinal - police procedural, seems a bit done-and-done but so far so good and if nothing else it's ex

I too enjoy Threat, took a lot of persistence though as it wasn't as immediate as their previous efforts were for me, and I join you others in missing their uptempo stuff. Sound Of Madness was epic and Amaryllis not far behind it.

Yeah I grew up with vinyl as well, I love it. I've been accumulating again in the last six months or so. I very rarely pick up anything new but I did make exceptions for the latest Dead Daisies and the Foo's "Wasting Light". I recently got a mint copy of Billy Satellite, it sounds better than the Rock candy remaster.

Definitely the pick of the J-Rock bands that have flooded out in the last couple of years, I spin New Beginning quite a bit still.

Different to my ears anyway, I have a US pressing of DRFSR, praps it was a first press? Could be the production values that I'm noticing because I've only ever had CD/Digi versions of the album, but I don't think so...

I've got mine hooked up to a Sherwood home theatre amp via a Phono Box E, sounds pretty good to me but I'm sure if I dropped more than 250 bucks (bundled) and had a separate audio amp to drive my circa 1978 mega speakers, well, I'm sure things would sound better. But, no complaints with the rig, Pro-Ject Elemental. Coincidentally I just ordered my next batch of vintage vinyl this morning, f

I was given Appetite on 180 gram vinyl, sounds unreal! Looking forward to the show in Feb.

Bring Mike back on bass, switch Wolfgang to rhythm - and perhaps let him share some solo work with Ed or even let Ed switch to keys occasionally - and have Sammy sing. No-brainer for mine. Sam's pipes won't sustain a long tour but it'd be totally worth it, f--k man I'd pay to see it....alas if this ever gets off the ground they won't hit Oz <sigh>.

I dig the fact they haven't changed it up too much, but 'Blessed' is streets above 'Damned'. Even the missus digs it - boomshakalaka!

I really enjoyed their album, shame they couldn't put another one out. Kowalczyk back in Live is still a good thing IMO, here's hoping they can recapture some Distance From Here form. Unlikely but a man can hope.

That production is about as chunky as they get production-wise no matter what format - I have the original LP so perhaps I'm biased, but yeah Puppets wins. To be honest I reckon Load comes in second, I dig that chunk too no matter where it rates in their cannon song-wise. Black's up there. But you're right, they lower the bass. Sad really.

It's listenable from a song perspective but it hasn't convinced me I haven't outgrown 'em. Too many overlong intros, Kurt's a spent force in terms of creativity, Lars' seat pole keeps slipping up his clacker causing him to never be able to keep time...even with pro tools, FFS! My take: it sounds like a melange of the Black Album and the Loads with a Justice production. In other words, there'

I spruiked their wares back when Big Red came out, probably August now that you mention it. I'd been living with Quid Pro Quo for a while as a bit of a guilty pleasure but the new one is a far superior disc. It's a mainstay in my 2016 playlist.

Strikingly Aussie accent, has he been in the band the whole time?
