I only read bits and pieces of that Pink thread, but I'm pretty sure I got the general idea based on what I read. It's kind of a dicey issue. When it comes to music and downloading and file sharing, everyone has his/her own way of doing things. Those with a conscience and/or an awareness of the legal and/or ethical ramifications wind up, at some point, having to think through the issue and dec

...is, indeed, a MAJOR METAL GEM!!! Hey, Benno & Co. It's cool to see someone else who digs UTB. It's probably my fave Saxon album. When I bought it, back in the day, I remember being absolutely, completely, totally blown away. I mean, I've always dug their stuff, had a great deal of respect for them, and realized that they are a premier metal band who've done a lot for the genre. I jus

I've had my 160 since the summer of '08 and it's wonderful. My only disappointment with it is that it doesn't hold double the music that my 80 held. Based on the 17 000+ songs that the 80 held, I had expected the 160 to hold between 34 000 and 36 000 songs. However, it's full at just under 32 000. I am hoping that they release a 200 gig (or larger) at some point, but I've not heard anything a

...I'm truly sorry to hear that you guys are suffering with back pain. Having suffered with it for 30 years (from age 12 till 42), I can definitely sympathize and empathize. But that's all behind me right now. My surgery was TOTALLY successful. I am just starting my 13th week of having ZERO pain. What a brighter, more wonderful place the whole world seems now!! Anyhow, I just wanted to sa

I'm truly not trying to blow smoke here, but, I've gotta say that the Shining Line album is really, REALLY growing on me. I liked the first handful of tracks pretty much from first listen. The rest of the album has now grown on me as well. Great stuff!! Cheers, MooseMan

I LOVE this band!!! First two releases are nothing short of stellar, IMHO. Astonishingly haunting, lush melodies which just stick in your head for days. I look forward to hearing album #3. Thanks for the heads up. Cheers, MooseMan

Hi Andy, Just a quick note to say "hello" and that I bought the G.I. album, but haven't had a chance to play it as of yet. I hope to give it a few spins tomorrow. Stay tuned... Cheers, MooseMan

Heart actually formed/got their start in Canada. They were Americans origninally, and they re-located back to the U.S. shortly after they started releasing albums. Cheers, MooseMan

For me, any of Priest's albums from "Sad Wings..." up to and including "Turbo" are absolute gems. Obviously, the band's sound changed/evolved/developed drastically over this period, but IMHO, this isn't a bad thing. I mean, as a result of this development, most people will have their preferences and disappointments, and this is to be expected. Personally, I love 'em all. T

...Porcupine Tree?????????? At first when I saw this thread I thought we might be asked to match random objects to animals. Sounded like fun. So I opened the thread and found that PT is a band. Checked 'em out on iTunes and discovered my next iTunes purchase. "In Absentia" sounds GREAT! I'll start there, and then maybe check out some of their other stuff later. Thanks for the hea

I must not have a very discerning ear, 'cuz I just can't hear stuff like this. On the upside, I guess I still get to enjoy albums - even when they suffer from poor production, mastering, etc. :-) Cheers, MooseMan

Hi Andy, I have "Break Out" and "Spanish Eyes." Both are good, but, like the rest of "Heart Full of Fire," they don't grab me as much as "Going Out With A Bang." Cheers, MooseMan

Thanks for the heads up, Andy!! I'll check out the other stuff. (Actually, I do already own two songs from the debut Brother Firetribe album. I'll buy the rest when I can.) BTW, are you still playing that Stryper stuff?! C'mon, enough already! LOL!! Cheers, MooseMan

I didn't think that many people rated this album. As I've stated before, it's by far my D2 favorite. I also loved the AOR/Journey influence. Songs like "Bang Bang," "Rock America," "Don't Walk Away," "One Step From Paradise," and "Feels Like Love" were RIGHT up my alley (still are, actually). Yeah, the lyrics are cheesy. But that's okay when

...is growing on me. I liked (loved) the first 4-5 songs right away. Now the rest is growing on me, to some extent. The second half of the album is, for me at least, not as instantly accessible than the first half. But it's good nonetheless. Other opinions? Also, and somewhat unrelated: I just discovered Brother Firetribe's "Heart Full of Fire" a short time ago. "Going Out

Hey guys!!! This is GREAT news, indeed!!!! This will make both my wife and I very happy. Me, 'cuz I'll be happy to see the mags not wind up in a landfill or shredded at a recyclers. My wife, 'cuz it'll free up a fair bit of space in the storage room downstairs. For the next couple of weeks or so, I am working INSANE hours.

Funny that this should come up. I have boxes full of music mags in my basement, much to the chegrin of my wife. I'm not really a packrat, but I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of them. Every time I opened up the boxes to "sort through them," I would find myself reading them. They include many different mags from back in the early '80s through the mid-to-late '90s. Hit Parader

I wanted to write a response to HellYeah’s post when I first read it, but I’ve been marking exams and working on report cards for the past few days, so I’ve just had a few quick opportunities to check in on the board and make a few brief posts. I took a break from marking to write the following... I should start out by mentioning a couple of things... I use iTunes for 99 percent of the

Hi all, A thread down below got me thinking about modern-day classics. I am dying to know how many people consider the "classics" being released these days (you know, the stuff that we all rave about and love and anticipate and get excited about) to be substandard compared to classics from back in the day. What's the general opinion out there? Are today's classics not "real&q

Hey Andy! My favorite NR album is definitely "Shadowland." Heavy Metal with hooks galore! I also really enjoy "Afterlife" and "Grand Illusion." "The Sacred Talisman" featuresa a different vocalist, and is much more in line with the whole Helloween/HammerFall power metal sound, IMHO. If you like that genre, it's a great album to check out as well. Ho
