Do you have the vinyl, or a CD rip? I have the vinyl, and to me it seems to gel okay, although it still sounds a little incoherent compared to the official CD remix. I think part of the problem is the variance in fidelity during recording between the orchestra and the band. The orchestra parts sound...

It's truly mind boggling to think what brainless dunderheads we have calling the shots in our government. It used to be that we had some balance between the good politicians and the losers. These days, almost everyone in positions of power are greedy, manipulative, dishonest, short-sighted bastards ...

I've been reading it, too. It's ludicrous. I've now learned that SACD has 64 times more resolution than CD, thanks to LeeS. I've also learned that Yesman, who is so insecure that he makes postings on the board about his great new projects that he is working on, also thinks SACD is better. People not...

I just bopped on over to the triphazer website. It's a fascinating read. I'm not going to deny what other people claim to hear, although this would be a prime candidate for some oh-so-naughty double blind testing (DBT, DBX, et al). There were very few testimonials on the website; I wanted to read re...

May I also suggest the Mapleshade Records catalog. Lotsa lotions and tonics that one can smear all over their CD's too, if one wishes. http://www.mapleshaderecords.com/tweaks/index.php I hear that Mr. Lukpac is a big fan of the CD lotions... The great thing about Mapleshade products is that they "s...

You're right, that catalog is a blast and a joy to behold. I got it the other day, and the first thing I did after seeing it in the mail was to thumb through it for two hours. I also enjoyed the picture from last year, with the cute suave woman on the airplane cueing up the Rega P25. Why aren't ther...

What about those rumors? Did her father let the kidnapping happen because he believed that Brian David Mitchell was truly a prophet, and that she must be Brian's second wife in order to fulfill his prophecies? Yeah, she's not life-altered at all. Unless she's stronger than I can ever imagine. Kidnap...
