I've posted over there infrequently over the years, dig the site but the forum never seemed to be used much.

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!

Never lost love of the band, stoked they found a singer with the right timbre.

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?

Clearly had the shits about something for most of the set, kept walking off during Orianthi's solos, seemed to be complaining to the soundboard folks quite a bit. At one stage he just strummed nothing on open strings out of frustration mid-song. Orianthi was a true pro throughout, her patience must be supernatural.

I recall folks mentioning it a month or two ago, think they're playing the Palace? Some contention over the way the ticketing was handled was expressed if memory serves. My only question was will they get to see Mickey Dee on skins, I reckon that'll be worth the price of entry alone.

That sounds tops! Their output is a bit hit and miss for me but I'm never disappointed to see they're putting out new tunes.

I'm only a casual fan of the band but I agree, Infestation was solid top to bottom.

The missus is an Orianthi fan but I'm curious to see Richie, bit worried about it now, geez. Guess I'll just get drunk along with him.

I really want to like it, and if I'm honest it's by no means bad...but its got that Justice mostly-droney-toneless grunt about it like the last album. And I'm sorry but Lars' slop on the pedals simply does not stack up any more. Ok, he can't (or simply refuses) to do it anymore live and that's fine - if we've turned up to a Metallica concert post 1999 then it's to be expected that he's going to

Sounds like adequate post-grunge a la "Theory Of A Deadman". Thanks for the heads up but not for me.

It's a case of fantastic tunes that are completely let down by pedestrian vocals. Just me? I kinda wish it was an instrumental album.

Not heard of the bands you speak of but you could've at least posted a clip of you jamming the Flying V. C'mon man, its a waste of exposition otherwise ;)

Yep dig it, far more stripped back than her previous two albums though. If you haven't dug those out yet then give 'em a go, but if this is more your style then perhaps the bombast might put you off.

Pretty cool track, any fans of the band? This is the first Tygers I've ever listened to (despite having been aware of them for years) so I don't have a gauge. Only The Brave

I'll play,: The Dead Daisies (180G red vinyl for the win) The Defiants Michael Sweet (super surprised by this) Rick Springfield Royal Republic Special Mention to the Whitford St Holmes release, not my style of music but I'm really enjoying this.
