What CDs did you buy this week?

Recommended Posts

I'll probably get censored for this. I bought 11:

 

:headbanger:

Scorpions - World Wide Live

Scorpions - The Best of Scorpions 20th Century Masters

Dokken - The Very Best of

Accept - Balls To The Wall

 

These two were found at heavyharmonies.com: Thanks Dan!

Romeo's Daughter (bought on ebay)

Shania Twain - Beginnings 1989 - 1990 (I can't stop playing this one. She's coming to the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver on July 15)

 

Missing Persons - Rhyme & Reason

Missing Persons - Lost Tracks (The "Rest Of" from the vaults)

Keiko Matsui - White owl (CD + DVD). Hey, she plays wicked piano. I saw her twice in concert in Seattle AND she signed all my other CDs. 18 in total!

Many of her songs are catchy. There is no singing and a great band.

 

Animotion - Strange Behavior (rare and out-of-print, bought on ebay)

 

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (CD + DVD).

MJ, I listened to Wanderlust again. I love the album. But, I have to know, what did you think of Perfect World. I loved the album, but what about Just Like A Pill. I don't know much about Pink, but I know this was the only song I'd heard that was good. (I did say when it came out how much I liked it.)

This is pretty much what I thought when I heard Perfect World doing that song~~~~~~~> :o

 

I mean.....it was OK when Pink did it.......I was just surprised someone like Kelly Hansen would do it..... It's "kinda" grown on me.......kinda.

 

 

As for the rest of the album..........I LOVE IT!!!!

 

Their version of Xenon's "Overnight Sensation" is as (almost) good as Xenon's........and that's saying ALOT coming from me, 'cuz I LOVE Xenon!!! :lol:

 

"I Believe In You" is probably my favorite........just love that one!!

Yeah, it was a surprise Kelly Hansen did it. I read an interview where he said the guy from Frontiers just picked the songs and gave the to him. One of the reasons I like the Pink song is that I can use it to get people to listen to the album by introducing it as "just a cover of a Pink song" or "do you know this song" and then maybe getting them to seriously listen to the album.

The next time I go down to Seattle, I'm going to look for Wanderlust and Perfect World. I haven't tried Virgin Megastore or HMV yet. A&B Sound don't have it in their computer. I was going to bid on a CD by Alexa but it is bidding at GBP23.00 or US$43.57!!!

 

I'm also going to write down a list of some of the bands you guys are listening to and bring them with me to Seattle. There are 3 maybe 4 used CD stores down there. One is only five blocks left of Tower records.

 

Also, I may be going to Japan during the last week of April. So, if there are any CDs that are only available in Japan let me know. There are a few used CD stores in Miyazaki City that I have been to and they have a good selection of U.S. music.

Check out the Wallingford neighborhood, west of UW (west side of I-5)... a bunch of little used stores on 45th Street. And don't pass up Dick's Drive-In! Killer burgers, cheep... :drink:

    • Lordi - Sexorcism Arena - Double Vision
    • Agree.   Still my favorite release this year also.  
    • Still playing this all the time Definitely my favourite melodic rock release this year so far
    • are we listening to the same song? the pre is pure Vega. I love it. And the chorus is great.  And the solo rules. You lost me on this one mate  I actually love the whole album start to finish. Not often I say that these days 
    • Isn't that you breaking your music rules?
      Allowing a song multiple listens to show its worth?

      😎
    • Airfare cast isn't the issue. These days you get to LA return with Air New Zealand from Melbourne for less then $100
      I Saw Melbourne to Athens today for like $650 or something with Scoot.

      For me it's the wasted time in the air.
      Spend a day to get somewhere, and a day to get back, I say you need at least 10 days on the ground to make it worthwhile.
    • Lordi - Sexorcism (Box Set) Young Gun Silver Fox - AM Waves Arena - Double Vision Saxon - Denim And Leather (Mediabook) Saxon - The Power And The Glory (Mediabook) Saxon - Crusader - (Mediabook) Ghost -  Opus Eponymous Ghost - Meliora Ghost - Popestar EP. Ghost - If You Have Ghost EP. Ghost - Infestissumam  
    • I kinda disagree and agree with you on this. The disagreement is because overall it is not a terrible album and is by far not her worst (go listed to the two jazz albums and 2Preciious or whatever that band was called). And as for classic sound, she does not really have one as her sound evolved significantly over the years. She went from the rawer heavier stuff of her earliest albums to the slick radio friendly stuff like Some girls do, to a more modern "serious" album like Emotional rain. All very different. Now where I do agree with you is that it is nowhere near close to being up there with her best and the lyrics are bloody horrible. There were a couple of songs where I just wanted to shout at her to shut up. The lyrics actually sound at times like they were written by a 10 year old who had just formed their own band for the first time. (My babe being a particularly bad song lyrically.)   The album for me is listenable, but is not even a patch on her last one (which I know left fans divided).   I know having the word blues in the title was a giveaway she would be trying her hand at that style of music, but I did not expect the lyrics to give me the blues due to the horribleness.
