Muse Black Holes and Revelations

I reccomend this new release to all of you out there. This is imo the best album I have heard in four years. Very creative, listenable and mixed well. Good ear candy..

Actually the original sound of the Priest albums was shotty to say the least. Ya can't remaster crap into good no matter how good your equipment is. The above was written by a fan of Judas Priest (Halford years only) Not necessarily true of Sad Wings Of Destiny (or, at least, it's not shotty in the...

You don't know about Nakamichi decks? The Dragon is generally considered one of the best decks ever. I've only ever used a DR-2...

Does anyone know a program or plugin for restoration of sound from cassettes? I mean simply solving the problems of hiss, spectral difference between R & L and this 'azymuth problem'? http://www.naks.com/dragon.gif The photo above agreeably IS a Cassette Deck. But let us not forget the best 70'...

Starting with the song 'Free Four' off of 'Obscured by Clouds' Waters began addressing aging, death and loss in his songs -- often with a refreshing lack of sentimentality, though some might call it a callous lack of sympathy. I think I've said elsewhere on this forum that nearly everything Waters ...

Pink Floyd - Animals

Having had all the CD versions of this which is to say the Jap pressing, original US, UK CD, ect... the remaster is quite good and I would recomend that only secondary to vinyl of course :) In fact all the newer remasters are very good sound wise as technology has improved since the advent of the sh...

The post-Waters band has performed *lots* of songs with Waters writing credits, so it's not that they want to deny him royalties. They've never performed anything from Saucerful of Secrets , More , Obscured By Clouds , Atom Heart Mother , or Animals , either, AFAIK. It's more likely the reason is t...

Not denying that on some tracks it's just Waters + session guys; just sayin' that the tracks cited by britre don't all fit that description. It's not nessessarily true Gilmour in fact played on any of the tracks on TFC at all, but.... it sure does sound like Gilmour style on "Not Now John" and "You...

Britre, what was the name of the company that sold the phasing devices in Music Direct? The description in the catalog was classic MD. Ms. Cleo would have approved.

I have to admit, I also love this catalog. So many cool "LP" related items to work 24-7 to afford! On a more serious note though, the LP selection in the catalog is shall we say "intense" with the "if we don't have it, no one does" impression! I in the past, induldged in a few purchases, and actuall...
